"When I first started working, I just auditioned for everything, because I like auditioning. And I auditioned for Khaleesi. I forgot that," she said. "It was the most awkward audition I'd ever had."

"The mother of dragons chapter has taken up the whole of my adult life. This woman has taken up the whole of my heart. I've sweated in the blaze of dragon fire, shed many tears at those who left our family early, and wrung my brain dry trying to do Khaleesi and the masterful words, actions (and names) I was given, justice."

After it all, it's come to this: the end of Game of Thrones. With the final episode of Season 8, HBO's fantasy epic ended the Last War with the destruction of the Lannisters, the torching of King's Landing, and one last person to sit the Iron Throne and rule Westeros.

Of course, one final warning: There are massive spoilers for the Game of Thrones finale beyond this point. Read on at your own risk.

The finale episode resolved the conflict between Daenerys Targaryen and the rest of Westeros after her turn in King's Landing, in which she used dragon fire to kill thousands even after the city had surrendered. Daenerys chose to rule Westeros through fear since she thought she'd never get the people's love. Turns out, that wasn't a great choice either, as it caused some of her most trusted allies to turn on her.

WWE Money In The Bank Final Match Results: Brock Lesnar Makes Surprise Appearance

WWE's Money in the Bank PPV is over, and the ending of the men's ladder match was extremely disappointing to many fans, as Brock Lesnar showed up and grabbed the briefcase hanging above the ring, winning the match. We didn't even know he was in the match. We're still collecting our thoughts but check out GameSpot's review of the show.

The XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut will host this year's event, which will have 11 matches on the card. Yes, it's another very large card for a WWE PPV.

There are only two matches on the entire card where the winner won't receive either a championship or a contract for a championship match. Roman Reigns takes on Elias, as both men have now moved to Smackdown and have beef with each other for some reason, and The Miz will battle Shane McMahon in a steel cage match. Miz told GameSpot during a recent interview that he's excited to be stuck with McMahon in a cage.
