Game of Thrones is now well into its fourth season and things are beginning to move along nicely. There are a number of different stories that we continue to follow on Game of Thrones and one of the more interesting ones is that of Daenerys Targaryen, mainly due to the fact that she has dragons. We love dragons.
In the most recent episode of Game of Thrones season four, which was titled Oathkeeper, we see Dany faced with a difficult decision between dishing out justice or offering mercy, ultimately deciding that justice outweighs mercy. Actress Emilia Clarke, who plays the role of Daenerys in the series and she has admitted that she believes Dany made the wrong choice.
Clarke explained, "The crucifixion of the children has struck a chord in her that has clouded any sort of helpful leadership values she may have. She spends so much of her time ignoring the innate femininity that’s within her and spends so much time being a strong woman within a man’s world that I think that she convinces herself that what she’s doing in what any commander would do, but actually it’s not what a good leader would do."
You can catch Emilia Clarke in the role of Daenerys Targaryen, along with the rest of your favourite characters, when Game of Thrones season four continues to air on HBO in the US on Sunday evenings. Meanwhile, Game of Thrones season four airs on Skay Atlantic in the UK on Monday nights.
