Warning: Season 6 Episode 4 spoilers.
The Mother of Dragons has burned the house – and the internet – down in Game of Thrones latest episode. And it’s throwing everyone into a frenzy.
During episode 4 of Game of Thrones’ sixth season, Khaleesi reminded us yet again why she is called the Unburnt.
After locking every powerful Khal in the temple of Dosh Khaleen and burning it to the ground, Daenerys proved that she is a badass female. But what really got people talking is her casual stroll through the flames. She may be fire proof, but her clothes definitely aren’t.
This is Emilia Clarke’s first nude appearance in the show since season three, and obviously, the Internet reacted appropriately.
Some praised the entire scene:

Dany burns her enemies, emerges naked & unscathed, & everyone *INCLUDING HER EXES* kneels to her as queen & goddess. SHERO.#GameofThrones

It’s safe to say everyone was pleased with Khaleesi’s powerful nude scene.
Baring all for the first time since season three, Emilia Clarke spoke with Entertainment Weekly about doing yet another nude scene, and confirmed that the badass naked woman who emerges from the flames is actually her and not a body double.
She told Entertainment Weekly:
I’d like to remind people the last time I took my clothes off was season three. That was awhile ago. It’s now season six.
But this is all me, all proud, all strong. I’m just feeling genuinely happy I said ‘Yes.’ That ain’t no body double!
It’s easy to agree that this was Game of Thrones most powerful use of female nudity – and it’s definitely changed the game for Khaleesi.
Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons – and now – badass ruler of Vaes Dothrak.
