I was very disappointed for several reasons after watching last nights episode of Game of Thrones.
For 7 seasons we got to see how Daenerys Targaryen started making her way to take the iron throne because she becomes aware that the iron throne is her birthright. After Daenerys loses her husband and unborn child, she helps 3 dragons hatch from their eggs. With three dragons she conquers the cities of Yunkai, Astapor, and Meereen, with the determination of ending slavery and injustice.
As we see Daenerys we think she is a savior, despite her strong moral compass, Daenerys is still capable of dealing ruthlessly with her enemies. We see that side of her a few times in past seasons, however nothing like this.
In Episode 5 of season 8, Daenerys shows us her true colors by ignoring everyone and destroying Kings Landing and all the people in it out of pure rage even after they surrendered. The episode gave us the perspective of the people in Kings Landing which looked like ground zero. As the city burned and crumbled Cersei tried to flee the red keep only to be crushed beneath the rubble of the building with Jaime Lannister.
Yeah, that’s how Cersei dies, crying in the arms of Jamie being crushed by the rubble of the red keep. I was hoping for a more epic death especially since they made us believe that Cersei was the main villain after the Night King and his army were defeated.
I’m beginning to believe that Daenerys is the real problem. She is emotionally unstable and has a dangerous weapon. This whole time we could have been made to think she was the savior. So now that Cersei is dead and everyone was almost killed by the dragon, Daenerys is the new focus and we are now left to wonder what the aftermath could turn out to be in the final episode.
I’m so glad this show is one disaster episode from being over.
What do you think about this season of GOT? Is Daenerys the Mad Queen” now?
