Throwing another acting challenge at the remaining contestants of Rupaul’s Drag Race at this point in the competition is especially cruel, but it’s a great test of their fortitude, both emotionally and physically.

Here is Khaleesi (Emilia Clarke) emerging from the fire of the temple of the dosh khaleen (the public eye?), unburnt, and unscathed, and unbothered until this very moment by the battle for equal pay being waged in the very industry in which she works.
