If they were optional, they shouldn't have said anything in the show.
What are they going to do? Invade the North? It’s almost impossible to invade and even more difficult to keep if you do (Iron Born managed once but ended up fleeing in a matter of months.) She was also the only aside from Dany’s forces (who peaced out) with an army outside the gates. Are they going to take her captive…
He is truly Azor Ahai, which it turns out actually translates as “The Petter of Good Boys”. The whole Red God/Prince-Who-Was-Promised thing was all just a wacky series of transcription errors.
And the winners of the Game of Thrones are the pets....
That was what bothered me more than anything else this season. It’s like, you spend ten years talking about how the Night King is a threat that can wipe out all of humanity and then kill him and his entire forces off during one evening????
She sails off the edge of the planet and finds 4 elephants standing on a giant turtle. The End.
Why would Dorne want back in this shitshow?
The real winner is Ghost, we all knew he was a good boy after all.
To be fair, the “let’s become a democracy” idea was laughed out of the room. Instead, they became an elective monarchy, which was a reasonably common form of medieval/Renaissance government.
Her actions were akin to getting a checkmate and then flipping the board.
She promised to break the wheel.
It also would have been easier to pass it off as a lucky shot if they were going to kill Euron like a bitch anyway. Plus it would have served their point about the mayhem of war. A nobody pirate makes a one in a million shot and history changes. It would have also made Dany’s fatal flaw that she can’t control herself,…
Indiscriminately torching an entire city because a couple guys shot at you would still be crazy, but a believable level of crazy where you feel betrayed by the character, not the writers.
It would have taken thirty seconds. Establish some scared Lannister archers in the streets of the city. After the rest surrender, have Dany land on a nearby wall. Drogon roars, the archers panic and fire, Drogon shrieks like he’s trying to draw a foul, Dany torches the archer, the other soldiers think they’re about to…
If you take the Dany character and change the gender to a man, do you really think they would play a man the way they have played Dany, this season. In a bitchficght with Sansa. Acting like a jealous 13 year old at a party where they know no one, like when she was at the Winterfell celebration over the wights? Begging …
I’m having such a hard time wrapping my head around D&D deciding to end it with two short seasons while HBO was completely fine with full 10 ep seasons for 7 and 8, and even wanted more than that. Like why rush to the end like this?
Cant say what GRRM is going to do, but the show has made a point that prophecies are 10% truth, 40% coincidence, and 50% garbage. They are meant to entice our characters (Stannis, Dany) or trap them (Cersei).
All I want to know is, who was “The Dome.” The consensus seems to think it was Annalee, but my money is on Charlie Jane.
How dare you call internet toxicity “wearying.” You are worse than Hitler!
