Game of Thrones just scored a leading 24 Emmy nominations for its fifth season, but many fans are already looking ahead to season 6 — and, according to Emilia Clarke, it’s going to be a doozy.

The actress spoke to the Los Angeles Times this week about the show’s Emmy nods (including the one she received for playing Daenerys Targaryen) and dropped a few hints about what’s to come when the show returns.

“There’s so much in store for her,” Clarke said of the Mother of Dragons. “I’m saying that obviously because I’ve read the script for next season. Muwah ha ha! I know stories. It’s really exciting.”

And while some previous seasons have started off more slowly, laying out information and setting the scene, Clarke says that won’t be the case this time around.

“This season coming up, that we’re about to film, there’s none of that,” she added. “It’s just go, go, go, go. Shocking moment to shocking moment. Epic moment to epic moment. It’s mental; it’s epic. And definitely Dany’s a part of it.”

Head to the Los Angeles Times to read Clarke’s full interview. For more on the season 5 finale, check out our interview with the cast at Comic-Con below.
