Clarke appears as Daenerys Targaryen in Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things, the fourth episode of the first season, alongside Harry Lloyd as Viserys Targaryen and Iain Glen as Ser Jorah Mormont. The Dothraki khalasar arrives at the city of Vaes Dothrak. Viserys becomes enraged that he has not been given the army promised him by Khal Drogo and that the Dothraki have been marching east further into the continent of Essos rather than west towards the Narrow Sea crossing with Westeros. When Daenerys invites him to dinner in her tent, the two quarrel and Daenerys tells Viserys that he has no honour among the Dothraki as he has won no battles. He attempts to assault her but she is able to resist him physically and warns him that if he tries to strike her again he will lose his hands, as she is the queen of the Dothraki horde and carrying the khal‘s heir. Counseled by Ser Jorah, Daenerys realizes that although Viserys is the Targaryen royal family’s heir by birth, he could not challenge for the throne of Westeros even if he was given an army.
