There’s not much many Game of Thrones fans wouldn’t do to get some insider information on the series' final season, whether that includes some bits of dialogue, details about the upcoming battle that will supposedly put the Battle of the Bastards to shame, or just an all-out spoiler for how it all ends. A few of the show’s stars have copped to sharing some details about the finale with some of their closest friends and family (Joe Jonas, Sophie Turner’s fiancé, even had to sign an NDA after she spilled the goods). But, as ELLE reports, it doesn’t look like Emilia Clarke will have to worry about any juicy details being leaked by the one person she told—and it’s not just because they’re a trustworthy individual.
While appearing on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to promote the final season earlier this week, Clarke admitted that while she was sworn to secrecy, she did tell one person (and one canine) about what's going to go down in Westeros.
"Well, I’ve got to be honest, I did [tell someone], I did. Not just my dog, I told, wasn’t supposed, sorry lads—I told my mom,” the actress confessed. However, it must not have been such a memorable ending, as her mom apparently forgot all about the conversation.
“But the good thing about telling my mom these things is that she’s a vault because she’s just done forgotten,” Clarke continued. “I told her. And we were talking about it the other day, and I was like, ‘Because, you know,’ and she was like, ‘Do I?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, ‘cause I told you. You kind of read one of the scenes,’ and she was like, ‘I can’t remember what happens.’ And I was like, ‘I already told you twice. You missed your chance.'"
As for Clarke herself, she said it has been extremely difficult to keep from spoiling the final episodes. "I just can’t wait for this to be out." (We're with the Mother of Dragons on that point.)
We’ll have to wait until the finale of Game of Thrones premieres in May to know for sure whether it’s truly not that special, or if Clarke’s mom is just the forgetful sort. (We’re obviously hoping it's the latter.)
