Yes and Ellaria is very dead.
Tyrion said a few seasons back that some maesters believed dragons might be smarter than humans.
I think it’s possible she thought the bells were some kind of trick that Tyrion was setting her up with. He’d been giving her bad advice all along and then the night beforebattle he releases his brother back to her enemy.
I thought that while luck obviously played a part, they did a lot to lay out her attack on the scorpions - as opposed to absent-mindedly joyriding around a blind corner, this time she dive-bombed them at breakneck speed from high altitude, and on at least 2 occasions on the sea and on the battlements, they show us how… Read more
Well I haven’t read the books but in the show Tyrion talked her out of “returning their cities to the dirt” when the slavers attacked Mereen, and Tyrion told her the story of her father trying to “burn them all” in King’s Landing to talk her down. It was also Tyrion who counseled her not to simply go straight to… Read more
Burning the khals, crucifying the slavers and removing the Dothraki from Essos were brutal but ultimately humanitarian moves. I’d say the evidence forher potential madness has existed all along but mostly in the things she has been talked out of doing. The difference now is that nobody will be able to talk sense to… Read more
I think you’re right that he went to kill her, but I think she’s pregnant. She looked more likeshe was trying not to cry when he brought up the kids.
Or, you know, thousands upon thousands of soldiers, any one of whom could scout ahead!
Ballistas or not, NOBODY IN THIS SHOW SENDS SCOUTS AHEAD! Like all the way back to Whispering Woods. WTF smh.
Argh I rabidly disagree. But it’s cool. This show is awesome.
This is where for me personally, this discussion takes a deep dive into Dany’s psychology, which I guess I’ve done subconsciously over the years, but I’m essentially projecting. I find even her worst impulses sympathetic, considering her background and her trauma, and even her genetics. I still agree she’s got to… Read more
Most of what you say here I agree with so I’m not sure where we crossed wires, but I disagree that she was fridged. Dany is totally isolated now, Missandei is a huge loss. Together with her commander Grey Worm, they are going to go apeshit and this time nobody will be able to talk her out of it. Makes perfect… Read more
If Cersei declares him lord of Riverrun, the current occupants will have to leave willingly or face the Lannister Army, so it’s not like he’d be on his own in that fight.
I fux with Dany but I totally appreciate that she is in fact, as Daario said, a conqueror and not a ruler. It will all be laid bare now as she’s pressed against the wall and I predict her tragic end. But it will be in fact, tragic, in my opinion - she’s suffered terribly and done a lot of good along the way in spite… Read more
Exactly! She made the right (morally speaking) decision and it seems to be costing her literally everything, little by little AND, nobody seems to appreciate that fact or even appreciate what she’s done for them. I mean anyone would go nuts over that but particularly someone who has been suffering and overcoming in… Read more
