Clarke appears as Daenerys Targaryen in the first episode of the third season, Valar Dohaeris. Daenerys’s dragons continue to grow and are able to sear and eat fish that they catch on a sea journey, but they are not yet developed enough to assault the continent of Westeros. Daenerys’s party arrives at Astapor in Slaver’s Bay on the continent of Essos to assess the city’s Unsullied warrior eunuchs. She is told that there are eight thousand of them for sale and that she has a day to decide whether she can purchase them. While considering her decision, she survives an apparent assassination attempt by the Warlocks of the city of Qarth.
