After Jon Snow got a news bomb dropped on him in the "Game of Thrones" premiere earlier this month, Daenerys' reaction to the revelation was anything but supportive.

Snow found out that he is the son of Lyanna Stark and Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, and with that, the true heir to the Iron Throne.

After being told by her lover, Daenerys resisted believing it at first and then appeared very upset that he may be the true king of Westeros.

"The main thing is we’re up for the same promotion and I’ve been working for it for my entire existence," Emilia Clarke told Entertainment Weekly about her character's reaction.

"This is my whole existence,” she added.

Since she was born, Daenerys had to run and hide with her brother (who later died) while she watched the kingdom her family had ruled for hundreds of years be taken away. After her long personal journey to being the current heir to the throne, she now may have to back down yet again and to a man who may not even want to rule.

She's joined Jon in efforts to be a good ruler and save the world from the Night King and it's a hard pill to swallow that she's doing it in vain.

"There’s so much she’s taken on in her duty in life to rectify," Clarke told EW. "There’s so much she’s seen and witnessed and been through and lost and suffered and hurt to get here… and Jon doesn’t even want it!”

Want it or not, there will be no throne if the Night King and his army take control of Westeros and kill everyone. At the end of last week, his army was knocking on the door at Winterfell and the battle is just about to begin.

"Game of Thrones" returns at 9 p.m. Sunday.
