Emilia Clarke reveals what she'd have changed about the controversial 'Game of Thrones' final season
The very last season of Game of Thrones has been pretty divisive.
There are those who loved it, those who hated it, and lots of people who still haven't worked out how they feel about it. One thing is certain: not everyone was satisfied by the outcome, and social media has already been inundated with posts by fans who wanted things to turn out differently.

In fact, it's not just viewers at home who wanted to see season eight go down differently. Certain members of the cast have actually been left feeling dissatisfied and might have preferred an alternative narrative.
One person who recently voiced her misgivings about the whole thing is English actress Emilia Clarke, who portrays Daenerys Targaryen.
In a recent interview with The New Yorker, Emilia revealed what she'd change about the final season if it were to be reshot, stating:
"Well, I can only speak to my own character and the people that I interact with on the show. But I would’ve loved some more scenes with me and Missandei. I would’ve loved some more scenes with me and Cersei."
Check out Missandei's final scene from episode four of Game of Thrones:
"I would’ve loved some more scenes between Grey Worm and Missandei. I would’ve loved to see a bit more between Cersei ... I feel like there was... The genocide was there. That was always going to happen. And I just think more dissection and those beautifully written scenes that the boys have between characters — that we are more than happy to contently sit there and watch ten minutes of two people talking because it’s beautiful. I just wanted to see a bit more of that."
However, Emilia might well get her wish after all. As a result of the vocal backlash against the finale from certain segments of the fandom, some people are already petitioning HBO to reshoot the final season.
