A question asked frequently by Futurama fans at Comic-Con and other conventions is: Will Zoidberg ever find love? Turns out, that very question will be explored in an upcoming episode. EW has learned that the disgusting decapodian will make a romantic connection with… wait for it… it’s pretty shocking… oh, right, you already read the headline… Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke!

Instead of playing a determined dragon queen, though, Clarke is guest starring on the animated 31st-century-set comedy as a flower stand owner who, ironically enough, was born with no sense of smell. “She falls in love with Dr. Zoidberg — the smelliest character on Earth in the future — but she can’t smell him, so it’s a match made in heaven,” explains series executive producer David X. Cohen. “However, being a doctor, he has the opportunity to perform a nose transplant and give her a sense of smell, which would destroy their romance, so it’s a big dilemma.”

Clarke’s episode is slated to air as the second-to-last episode of the series. Futurama will officially end its seven-season run of 140 episodes on Sept. 4, as Comedy Central has decided not to order additional installments. For more on the cancellation, what this means for the future of the franchise, and details on the final season, click here.
