It's going to be a long year for Game of Thrones fans. While the wait for new episodes is usually pretty excruciating, things have been further delayed for the upcoming season 7. Due to weather issues, Game started production late, which will result in a later premiere date for the fantasy drama. So we'll have some extra time to wait before the new (short) season premieres on HBO. And while naysayers that believe the network should just hurry it up and give the fans what they want, it's clear that Game of Thrones needs all the time it can get. Because series lead Emilia Clarke has only just wrapped for Season 7.
You wouldn't think that R.Kelly and George R.R. Martin's stories would be a winning combination, yet there it is. Perhaps Emilia Clarke should start a music career of her own, under the alias George R.R. Kelly.
All jokes aside, Emilia Clarke's song choice for this video seem super appropriate for what's ahead on Game of Thrones. Last season was a major one for Dany, as the finale saw her finally setting sail for Westeros. With the combined fleets of the Tyrells, Martells, and Greyjoys (as well as her three massive dragons) it seems like Dany is ready to finally rule. But in order to do this she's going to have to conquer Westeros. Cue the dragons.
The Targaryen historically conquered Westeros through mostly the use of dragons. While the Lords and rich families had plenty of resources and troops, there is truly no real defense against the flying, fire breathing creatures. As such, you an assume that Dany will be riding Drogon and the others while attempting to conquer Westeros and recruit the powerful families to her cause. So Emilia Clarke believes she can fly because she did likely did plenty of it in Season 7.
