Emilia Clarke Says GoT Episode 5 Is 'Bigger' Than Battle of Winterfell

Okay, so we all know last week's episode of Game of Thrones was absolutely epic, with everyone staggering away from their screens, completely speechless.

It was intense the whole way through, but then Arya popped up out of nowhere right at the end and blew our tiny little minds.

However, apparently we ain't seen nothing yet, as Daenerys Targaryen actor Emilia Clarke has promised there's another episode to come that's even 'bigger' - urging us all to find the largest screen possible to watch the next instalments.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Clarke discussed what's to come in the next three episodes.

"They're going to be mental. Episode five is bigger," she said.

"I mean, four, five, and six - they're all insane. Find the biggest TV you can."

Clarke - whose brother is also part of the camera crew on the fantasy series - also spoke to host Kimmel about the process of shooting that incredible third episode of season eight, 'The Long Night'.

"What you saw was really what it was like shooting it, so you saw blood and mud and angry screaming people, and then backstage there was blood and mud and... asleep people," she said, explaining that cast and crew were up 'all night' shooting for 55 nights.

"It was amazing we didn't actually kill anyone. It was extraordinary."

Then, of course, there were those dragon scenes - which thankfully didn't involve standing around in the freezing cold in the dead of night.

Instead, Clarke filmed in a 'big warehouse' on a 'huge contraption', which was controlled by a crew member.

It's an experience that her co-star Kit Harington has now had the honour of trying, thanks to the latest scenes featuring Jon Snow and Daenerys frolicking round on dragons together.

"I feel weird about it, I'm not going to lie," Clarke joked.

"He was kind of arrogant about it, like 'I can do this'.

"He got on and that's when I was learnt that men riding dragons is a whole other thing than a lady who rides dragons. A little more uncomfortable for them."

"Because of the human testicles," Kimmel said.

"Yeah, so he looked really pained," Clarke laughed.

It's a hardship Harington has spoken about himself, having said in a behind-the-scenes video released by HBO that the giant mechanical bull he had to use wasn't particularly gentle on his, er, dangly bits.

"Buck work is not easy," the 32-year-old said.

"I think what sums up the buck for me was there was a bit where Jon almost falls off.

"The dragon swings around really violently, like this, and my right ball got trapped, and I didn't have time to say 'Stop!' and I was being swung around.

"In my head, I thought, 'This is how it ends, on this buck, swinging me around by testicles, literally.'"

Giggling to the camera, he added: "Sorry. Probably too much information."

Poor fella.
