Plastic water bottle during the vote scene (timestamp 44:03)
He's now The King Beyond the Wall
Was really hoping to see this meme come to life (so to speak)
Taking his mom back to the end of Season 6
May we never see their like again.
Well, they rebelled after Robert Baratheon took the crown
And how'd that work out for them? They were quickly and soundly defeated.
Well, the business of making a TV SHow like this doesn't necessarily allow for the long form ending that you want.
You mean unlike the long form format of the first 6 seasons?
HBO gave them a budget of time and money to make use of.
No. HBO wanted more episodes, and were ready to pay for it, but the showrunners wanted to move on to other projects.
I'll give you Dorne but the Iron Island were were more like annoying gnats, everyone would just ignore them until they were annoying enough to squash.
Let Jon Snow go back to Sansa
He's really taking this Targaryen thing seriously, isn't he?
Actually, let me revise that:
Dude should have stayed in the damn cave
Nice demon imagery.
You spelled dragon wrong
And why exactly did Grey Worm’s opinion matter?
Because his damn unsullied keep respawning after they've been killed
What is your ideal ending?
And now our watch has ended
Sophie Turner introducing her husband to the rest of the cast after the finale:
Jon kills Dany
And takes The Black as a compromise for Geryworm wanting him executed
Prediction: Cersei emerges from that pile of rubble with her baby elephants and vows to retake the throne.
Cersei Lannister, First of Her Name, The Uncrushed, Mother of Elephants, Watcher from Window, Shatterer of Septs, Lover of Brothers, Layer of Krakens, Payer of Debts, Drinker of Wine
People just snap. A lot of times it doesn't even take a traumatic event to cause someone to go over the edge. They just wake up one morning and decide to kill a bunch of people.
Yes I'm sure a person that couldn't even stomach watching 2 people fight in the fighting pits would totally just snap and be all to happy to murder hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and children with dragon fire. Completely plausible.
How indifferent she was seeing her own brother brutally killed.
Her brother had literally just threatened to cut her baby out of her womb and then kill her. Earlier that day he told Dany that he would have happily let all of Karl Drogo's men AND THEIR HORSES rape her if it meant he could sit on the Iron Throne. Dude was a complete sociopath that used to beat and molest her before selling her into a forced marriage that she did not want. There was no love there.
How she used Dario was another case of truly how heartless she really is
Dario was her fuck-buddy, they both got exactly what they wanted out of that relationship. And no, she didn't "just want his soldiers" because if you remember she left Dario and his men behind in Essos to watch over the Free Cities for her.
a 10-episode story arc explaining why she went off the deep end. That is complete crap. Losing Jorah then Messandei the way she did was all that it took to trigger that cray cray. Adding 2 more episodes just to stretch that out wouldn't make it any more believable.
Remember that time when they wrote a fantastic series about this character’s slow descent into evil without suddenly ignoring previous character development? But yeah you're right, they could have crammed that series into just 2 episodes and achieved the same payoff.
If you can't see that, you're either choosing not to, or are way too invested in her character.
OR maybe I just happen to like good writing/story telling.
For the millionth time, I have no issues with Dany turning into the Mad Queen - so long as it is done in a plausible, believable fashion that does not contradict earlier character growth/development or parts of the story. Her character has always gone to great lengths to protect the innocent, particularly children. To have her throw all of that away and launch a scorched-earth campaign intentionally hunting down and burning innocent people and children is simply not believable given her existing character arc.
