        Literally none of that explains the 180-shift that took place in what, two episodes? The "Mad Queen" angle has always been a legitimate outcome, but NOT in the short period of time they tried to shoe-horn it in, which is the problem.

        Oh-no...she said she'd burn cities to the ground as a RALLYING CRY to amass an army. Ever heard the term "actions speak louder than words"? Up until the "turn", the only people she punished or was cruel to were legitimate enemies or dissidents. Even the Tarleys were enemy combatants who she gave the choice of mercy to, and they declined. Remember when one innocent kid got burnt and as a result she locked her dragons away....but now she's just flying around roasting everyone? Every explanation is a giant stretch because if you look hard enough, literally every "ruler" in the show has made questionable decisions, did they turn into genocidal maniacs? Jon Snow, THE "moral compass", executed a boy who was COERCED by grown men into betraying him. You are going to have to dig deeper than "well remember when she crucified all those SLAVE traders??" as a valid explanation, or "yeah but her best friend was beheaded!" as if literally every other characters in the show hasn't lost people close to them.

          Pfft, get out of here with this logical and rational explanation for why this season's efforts to rush 2 full seasons of content into 6 episodes is causing problems with the fanbase.

          • I was watching a live stream last night discussing various topics and GoT came up. An interesting point came up.

            ... After the first 4 seasons, real people were naming their real daughters after Dany's character, for obvious reasons as she was a strong female character and girl power and blah blah blah..... thanks to season 8.....congratulations parents... you have officially named your kid after "Literally Dragon Hitler"

            LMFAO if that is actually true. Goes to show that if you want to name your kid after someone...wait until they're dead.

              Sadly, I'll bet there's a kid out there somewhere named Dracarys.

                But they killed her confidante! Like when Grey Worm was ambushed by the Harpies and Barristan Selmy was killed saving him. After that she just burnt Meereen to the fucking ground street by street. Wait no she didn't! Then right after that she was attacked at the fighting pits by the Harpies again she still didn't melt Mereen street by street. But takes two looks at Kings Landing and is like fuck all these people? She didn't even destroy the Red Keep first to kill Cersei and the Mountain who killed Missandei. Presumably only because D&D wanted to buy some time for Jamie to fight Euron and reach Cersei.

                  For every example trotted out there are dozens of examples to the contrary. Dany was shown as one of the most resilient and emotionally steady characters in the show for the first 7.5 seasons. Even after Tyrion's talk with Qyburn failed to save Missandei, she didn't remove him as Hand nor did she seek vengeance on him for his family's lineage. She didn't seek vengeance on Jaime who killed her father. She took the loss of the first dragon on the chin and kept going and even went back into battle against a foe she knew could kill her other two dragons for the good of mankind.

                  But yeah, killing Missandei was what "snapped" in her brain and she decided to start burning thousands of innocent crying children before, you know, the person who ordered the execution. Makes total sense.

                      Again don't mind the heel turn but thought it was executed poorly. Like having Becky Lynch submit the champion win the belt then have her layout the announcers with chair shots then everyone near the ring

                          She said this in a previous season...she never verbally said that in Episode 4.

                          Also, LMFAO if you consider yourself "smart people"

                            I'll have to go back and watch it again. I know she said it in season 7 but I thought she restated it in episode 4 when discussing parley with Cersei after she captured Miss Sunday.

                            • HBO releases a still frame for Sunday's episode. Looks like she's using cheat codes to keep adding Unsullied to her ranks. It looks like she has more of them now than she did before the battle against the Night King. Great writing!

                                “I am not here to be queen of the ashes,” Daenerys tells her ally Olenna Tyrell in season 7.

                                She's said it various ways throughout the seasons.

                                “This series deserves a final season that makes sense,” reads the petition’s mission statement, which almost borders on self-parody. “Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”

                                I laughed.
