Two episodes of “Futurama” left, and producers are continuing to do what they do best: make nerds happy.
Emilia Clarke, aka Daenerys Targaryen from HBO's “Game of Thrones,” guest stars on the August 28 episode as Dr. Zoidberg's ideal mate: a gorgeous woman born with no sense of smell. Good thing, too, because Zoidberg admits he's "smellier than a whorehouse's outhouse."
Here, we've got an exclusive sneak peek at the couple's first date, complete with more gratuitous references to raccoon violence than should be allowed on basic cable:
One of "Futurama's" strengths has always been its sincere emotion cutting through and heightening the jokes that come flying out at 186,000 miles per second. There have already been several teary-eyed moments this season, and more are promised — could this be the most despised Planet Express employee's last chance for love? Or will our final memory of the educated crustacean be him getting his heart broken by the Mother of Dragons?
More important still: When will the cast of “Futurama” cross over into “Game of Thrones”? Leela and Brienne in a remake of “Thelma and Louise”? Bender and Tyrion in a remake of anything?!
Only time (or, more likely, wildy imaginative fan fiction) will tell for sure.
"Futurama" airs Wednesdays at 10 PM on Comedy Central.
