As we ready ourselves for the historic final season of Game of Thrones next year, we're all experiencing a mixed bag of emotions. While we're psyched for what show creators have in store for us, we're also sad at the prospect of having to say cheerio to one of the biggest, most iconic shows this side of the millennium.
Earlier today Emilia Clarke - aka the very badass Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons - tugged at our heartstrings when she posted a farewell message to the show on Instagram, writing: "Hopped on a boat to an island to say goodbye to the land that has been my home away from home for almost a decade.
"It's been a trip @gameofthrones thank you for the life I never dreamed I'd be able to live and the family I'll never stop missing #lastseasonitis."
It's amassed well over two million likes from fans, with many paying tribute to an amazing character who will be greatly missed.
One person commented: "Thanks to you too, for giving us a wonderful character."
Another wrote: "You have been an inspiration and watching you as Danny gave me strength to go on and fight my own battles. I'll miss my Queen."
But among those comments is one that you may not have spotted from a certain Jason Momoa, who played Clarke's late on-screen husband Khal Drogo.
"Love u. Proud of you," Momoa wrote to his work wife, in a reply that's now racked up well over 18,000 likes.
Earlier this month there were more public declarations of GoT family love, when photos from what looked like a wrap party surfaced.
Posting a video featuring a montage of several photos of Momoa and Clarke larking about, Momoa wrote: "Moon of my life @emilia_clarke every time I leave you my face hurts from smiling to much. I Fucking love you forever."
Clarke posted a similar snap from the same event, saying that they'd been trying to recreate the Dirty Dancing lift.
"FYI...This is the closest you'll ever get to me attempting 'that lift' from Dirty Dancing," she wrote.
"Yes, my man is sitting. Yes, there's no lake. And yes, I have no idea I'm NOT being raised above his head.
"(Id like to take a moment to thank alcohol for giving me courage to attempt this. Ever.)"
D'aawwwww. YOU GUYS.
