Warning: Spoilers ahead for Sunday’s episode of Game of Thrones
After being captured by the Dothraki in last year’s Game of Thrones season finale, she is back on top in Sunday’s episode, which saw her escape the clutches of Khal Moro (Joe Naufahu).
Daenerys burned Moro and his men alive – herself surviving the blaze, just as she did way back the season 1 finale, when she first acquired the name Mother of Dragons after coming through a fire unharmed.
“Every season I get at least one spine-chilling moment,” Clarke told Entertainment Weekly of the scene. “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.’ “
The reaction on social media was swift, with fans alternating between freaking out and making jokes about her badass retribution.
Check out some of the best reactions below:

The last time I felt goosebumps like this was when Daenerys conquered Astapor but this scene is an even more badass Daenerys scene #khaleesi

For the entirety of #GameOfThrones, the Danaerys story has been 80% boring and 20% awesome, but that 20% is SO awesome that it’s worth it

As you increase the amount of fire, the number of problems that can’t be solved approaches zero #GameofThrones

Thanks for the happy moment, @GameOfThrones. I know it was not easy to provide viewers with any sort of satisfaction. Big of you.
