Subscribe To Game Of Thrones Star Has A Two-Word Response To Angry Fan Petition, As It Passes 1 Million Signatures Updates
Spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 8 are discussed below:
After spending so much time and effort working on the final season, that is a reasonable response to have. Jacob Anderson was one of the actors who participated in filming the difficult Battle of Winterfell. The petition was initially published after Episode 4, the installment following the battle.
It gained unprecedented traction following the controversial events of Episode 5. Some fans have been expressing frustration on social media before the latest episode. However, everything sort of came to a head in the fan base after it aired. The controversy surrounding “The Bells” involved Daenerys Targaryen's deadly rampage.
Despite King’s Landing surrendering, Daenerys decided to set fire to and kill innocent children and their parents. The response to the episode was swift and angry. Throughout the week, some fans have argued that Dany's actions were a sudden departure for the fiery character.
Asked for his thoughts on fans' wish that Game of Thrones had spent more time explaining why Daenerys "snapped," Jacob Anderson told HuffPost:
Daenerys has said that she would take what she believes is hers with “fire and blood.” Still, many fans believe her latest move is out of character and occurred out of the blue. However, there are those that counter that point.
Jacob Anderson went on to explain that he does not think that Daenerys’ violent actions indicate she has gone “mad.” A reference to Daenerys’ father, The Mad King, who many believe went insane. Asked if Emilia Clarke's performance has been indicating Daenerys had this in her, Anderson said:
As the wait for the series finale reaches its end, Game of Thrones fans are bracing themselves for it. Jacob Anderson’s Grey Worm is one of those who survived to the final round. He is joined by the surviving Unsullied and the Dothraki. Between Daenerys’ two armies and her dragon, she is pretty untouchable.
The aftermath of Daenerys’ actions will play out in the series finale. Will she be killed? If her reign goes uncontested, will she allow Tyrion, Jon Snow, Davos, and Arya to leave what’s left of King’s Landing alive? Or will Tyrion and Jon Snow decide to stay with her? After all, she is their queen.
Find out if Grey Worm is among those who survive. The series finale of Game of Thrones airs this Sunday (May 19) at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
