Emilia Clarke's G'iah had an unexpected direction in the final episode of Secret Invasion. Aside from already being a Super Skrull, she also injected herself with the blood of the Avengers through the Harvest and it led to a CGI-heavy fight sequence between her and Gravik.

The finale has been met with divisive reactions ever since it streamed on Disney+ last week, particularly on how G'iah became too overpowered and perhaps turned into the most powerful character in the MCU to date as she now possesses the superpowers of all the heroes.

It is unknown yet how Clarke's character will exactly play into the future of the MCU moving forward, but the final episode indicated that she will work together with Sonya Falsworth to protect the Skrulls from Ritson's bill which shows that we will likely see more of her.

Now that the episode is out in the public, the actress has chimed in on her character's unexpected turn and her thoughts may surprise you.

In an interview with, Clarke discussed her experience working on the fight sequence in the final episode of Secret Invasion which involved a lot of stunt and wire work.

Contrary to the reception that the final episode received, the Emmy-nominated actress was enthusiastic when she shared what she felt like shooting the sequences and she even called it her "funnest day."

"I literally was like, this is my best day ever. I'm a theme park-riding kind of gal. Give me a trapeze. Give me a roller coaster. It felt exactly like that. I just kept giggling. I couldn't stop giggling," she said.

"It was genuinely the funnest day I've ever had on set — ever, ever, ever. if I could just live in wires, if I could be in wires now— Oh, it's so good. After I wanted to tell everyone, I just came back, I’ve done something!"

While fans were not happy with G'iah becoming too overpowered and the CGI fight sequence that is different from the show's grounded tone, you also can't blame Clarke's enthusiastic experience since she was acting in front of the camera which is different than watching it on our screens.

When the Emmy nominee filmed the sequence, she has no idea what the final results will be and she doesn't consider the logic of her character's turn since it falls to the responsible of the writers and director.

It is interesting to see what Marvel Studios will do with the character in the future and whether they will address or course correct her overpowered turn as well as how it will fare from the existing superheroes in the MCU.

All episodes of Secret Invasion are available to stream on Disney+.
