    Remember that little girl that apparently was a Targaryen, had dragons and nobody cared for her? How the time can change...

    Go Dany, go! I applaud her for being brave and burning the city. They poked the dragon and had to deal with the consequences. Truly amazing. I just wish she hadn't died. Long may the Dragon Queen reign!

    This makes Smaug look like a joke but ofcourse, The Hobbit could not be as dark and violent.

    I completely understood for what Daenerys was doing. I just really wish there were more seasons to elaborate on why Daenerys was at the frayed ends of sanity and not so rushed and jam packed into seasons 7 & 8. I did not hate this decision on Daenerys part. I just hated the final episode.

    Despite all the controversy surrounding GOT this episode was otherwise incredible imo, frightening, shocking, and well put together. Emilias portrayal was impeccable. Her mental spiral into insanity that moment on the dragon where her voice broke into a sob and the rage in her eyes, it was haunting. Just damn good acting

    honestly dont know why jon or tyrion are in shock by this. clearly this is ur fault! she wanted kings landing, fought 6 season, to get ther and u take her to ur cause of pleasing the people of westeros who dont care about her and thinks of her as foreigner, then white walker who are not her problem and talk about loss - how much can one person lose before breakin down?? danny loss count : brother, husband, future children, close maid, trusted guardian, lover, the trust of her ppl, her closest friend-sister, her 2 dragons, a lover-turns out cousin... we would said fk it after 1-2 loses

    Ser Jorah said that all her efforts would be rewarded with an unknown world that probably wouldn't even want her around, despite her efforts to be different from her father. She could never be trusted. Ironically, that worry is what turned her into exactly what she wanted to fight against.

    Well technically this is exactly what has always happened when a kingdom invaded and conquers another kingdom , rape and slaughtering and destruction is inevitable
    Cercei herself said it when Stannis was about to conquer the city

    Why didn't she just burn the castle? She was looking in that direction.

    had this scene culminated from good writing and then birthed more more good scenes, it would've been my favorite scene in all of GoT

    Well done, Cersei.
    If you are good at one thing, it is creating monsters: Daenerys, Gregor Clegane, even one of your own children.
    And you finally did it. You finally found someone to outdo you.
    A lot of people complain this was a terrible way to end the series and none of this made sense for Dany, but I think in reality, it kind of did; her constant displays of power and brutal punishments against those she deemed worthy were very telling. She was a Targaryen. Did the people of Kings Landing deserve it? No. Did she ever think they did? Probably not. She had gone mad, and lost any amount of patience she had for the war.
    Most of all, she wanted Cersei to watch. I think that was made very clear by her fixation on the Red Keep. She could have flown directly to Cersei and ended it, but she wanted to exercise her power. She wanted to break Cersei down and show her just how insignificant and powerless she was.
    While I think there could have been more to drive Dany to that point, I think pretty much everyone is in agreement Season 8 was rushed. That doesn't mean Season 8 ending with her madness was necessarily a bad thing, it just didn't feel like it had enough justification quite yet.
    Virtually every other character in the show had their arcs abruptly ended, some even backpedalling on things that we had believed to have been established about them. Jaime went back to Cersei, Cersei and Jaime's deaths were lackluster and didn't do them justice, Arya didn't get to show off her skill, Jon boiled down to "muh queen," what the hell is up with Robin Arryn? Did he grow up? Is he going to positively contribute or just be a little bitch like Joffrey?... and then there is Tyrion. Ending the series the same way it started, with a joke about honeycombs and brothels.

    I was so dissatisfied with Season 8, I felt as if my anger was vented out through Dany. She was doing to Kings Landing what D&D did to the show

    Season 8 was a disaster but this scene made sense. If you listen to interviews with killers they often talk about how once they got started they couldn’t stop.
    Also, Cersei’s frozen in fear look is perfection. You see everything she is evaporate in that moment. Lena Headey nailed that look.

    Guys you know Kings Landing is one of the biggest cities in Westeros so people who threw rocks at Ned or Molested Cersei was just some people not all of them. So yes many of them were innocent. At this point Cersei was wrong and Dany was right. But after the bells Dany became wrong and lost her sanity.

  • Robbert014

    Dany wanted to be back 'home' in the Red Keep and King's Landing since she was old enough to think. She grew up on stories about King's Landing and ruling King's Landing. Now she's finally on the doorstep and she decides to destroy it all? That just makes no sense, no matter how many people she has lost on the way. I can totally buy daenerys going mad, given the incest and the Targaryen history, but not this way.
    The Drogon action is amazing in this episode though. Kinda made up for the sloppy writing.

    To be clear. All of this is Tyrion’s fault! Had he not been wrong at every strategic plan, that and his emotional ties clouding his judgement, then this would’ve been avoided. Lord knows Daenerys tried to do things to the right way....she came to war willing to be the good guy, listening to advice, and lost about everything, and got credit for nothing. Tyrion should’ve been fired honestly season 7 episode 4. At that point, he was losing mereen, had lost iron islands, dorms, and high garden. He’s 0/4, time to give him his pink slip. Thennnn he foolishly suggested that they send a squad north to bring back a wight. He actually believed cersi would halt hostilities and go north, after living with her for years, knowing her ways and manipulation and lack of honor. meanwhile sansa who was only there for a fuckin season knew that’s something Cersei would NEVER do. And boom, lost a dragon. 0/5. Worst hand ever.
