'Game Of Thrones' Made A Huge Change To Daenerys, Fans Are Outraged

HBO's Game of Thrones has diverged from the book series on a number of occasions, but there was one major change featured in last night's episode which has some fans up in arms. Spoiler alert if you haven't read the books or watched last night's episode, "Book of The Stranger."

At the end of last night's episode of Game of Thrones, Daenerys Targaryen took it upon herself to burn down the temple of Vaes Dothrak – with herself and the ruling Khals locked inside. Daenerys, who styles herself "the Unburnt" steps out of the burning building before the amassed Dothraki, unscathed and totally naked. The assembled Dothraki hordes all bow to her, awed as the flames lick at her but don't appear to harm her.

In part because author George R. R. Martin once remarked that Daenerys isn't fire-proof. Even though she emerged from Khal Drogo's funeral pyre unscathed, Martin stated that the event was just a one-time thing – the result of blood magic.

Last night Game of Thrones fans took to social media to vent their frustration, reports Tech Insider. Many commented that Daenerys wasn't supposed to be "fire proof" and last night's big climax was too big a departure from the source material. Fans had some angry words for the writers, but otherwise claimed the episode was one of the best so far.

"It's so exciting, very tingly-making. Every season I get at least one spine-chilling moment. I just stand up and I go, 'I'm hearing what you're all saying, but funny thing, I'm going to kill you all. I forgot that I have an ace in my back pocket and now I win,'" said Emilia Clarke speaking with Entertainment Weekly.

"She realizes that this is the missing piece, the Dothraki are the missing piece of her crew – she's seemingly indestructible having Dothraki on her side," said actress Emilia Clarke.
