    And they started that in the very first episode when she gets into the bath where the servant says it’s too hot right after she’s groped by her brother...

    There’s a real possibility he somehow ends up in the north with Tormund and Ghost wandering around aimlessly.

    I disagree it would make things worse because until you watch the interview, there’s no indication AT ALL of why Danny went coocoo bananas. She won, heard the bells of surrender, looked at the red keep, and lost it. The right thing to do is do an infinitely better job setting it up and explaining it, being more careful over several episodes if not seasons. However absent that, a little montage explaining what’s going on in her head and why she snaps is better than absolutely nothing at all.

    The double D’s Should take a queue from whoever put this together becaus this would have made a whole lot more sense than what we got:

    @Momma There Goes That Man The best resolution to the night king plot is if he took a bad step, fell on his own ice spear and turned into ice cubes after Jon and Danny met to get out of the way for the plot 90% of the fans of the show care about. Then we would have had plenty of time to sort out the whole Danny goes mad thing, and we wouldn’t have had a pointless battle episode. I didn’t care for this episode because they didn’t set up Danny “snapping” we’ll enogh. I think minus the whole useless Night King/WW plotline which they needed to wrap upon some meaningful way, they just didn’t have enough time in the season to let it breathe.

    I guess you could say that, I just don't see it. I think it was pretty clear that she was willing to roast her enemies, but almost always fought for those who couldn't fight for themselves. I think "snapped" would be more that she flew right to the Red Keep and killed everybody inside it. And Cercei had built a human shield in the Red Keep, so I could see that. I just don't think flying around the city burning everything is in character, even if she snapped. And I don't think they ever set up that snapping. What's the worst actual thing she's done? Kill Dickon? I mean, the dad had it coming, maybe she spares Dickon. I guess the other thing was rounding up all the slave masters seasons ago. But again, that was in retribution for killing children, if I recall... I would have had no problem with the "Mad Queen" arc if they had done more to set it up which made more sense. Also, the Jamie/Cercei ending just seriously pisses me off.

    I just don't think it's her personality to burn the entire city once they've basically won. She's happy to burn her enemies, she's never even had an inkling of burning people who aren't attempting to thwart her. I get that they tried to paint it as she's lost all her close friends, and she's pissed the **** off, and she's going to kill Cercei come hell or high water, and if a few civilians get caught in the crossfire, eh, so be it. But the willful decision to basically melt the entire city just cause, that's just out of character. Entirely.

    Literally all she had to do was roast the Iron Fleet and the scorpions, land Drogon outside of the city, and that's enough fear to start a "dynasty." (I want it said like Tywin...)

    1. I think I said in an earlier post, "Fly really high over the iron fleet, come right down on them and burn the hell out of them." I think that happened. 2. Tyrian saying, "The city will fall tomorrow, I defended the city, nobody knows it better than me" indicates that he has told Danny and company exactly what to do. Which seems to be "fly really high, burn the iron fleet, then fly along the walls and get the scorpions, and then it's all over. In order to make that line pay off and make Tyrian look somewhat useful, they needed a scene with him telling folks what to do to take the city. That didn't happen. 3. I do kinda see why they had to equalize forces a little bit. 3 dragons plus the entire unsullied, Terrells, Dornish, Dorthraqui, etc. would have taken the city in about 3 seconds. 4. I guess the valenquar prophesy kindof came true? Jamie's hands were on Cercei's neck? 5. The whole Jamie arc is just terrible. The whole thing. @Momma There Goes That Man is completely right. He basically destroyed his reputation to save the common people, but then says he doesn't care about them? 6. I don't buy Danny burning the whole city to the ground for no reason. Sorry. I can see "mad queen" going straight after the Red Keep and going after Cercei for killing Messandei, but there's NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING in her character's arc that says she would roast innocents for the hell of it. She is the "breaker of chains" for God's sake. She rose to power by helping the people who can't help themselves. 7. I thought the way they followed Arya through the carnage was good. 8. Grey Worm just wants to kill as many people as he can for revenge, and I get that, but it looked like all the people he was trying to kill were Lannister soldiers. 9. I personally thought Clegane Bowl sucked. I figured they would both die together somehow. However fighting an undead zombie-man wasn't a fair fight, and I personally found it stupid. I wish it was just man vs. man, and let them go at it. 10. Jamie killing Euron was fitting, but really kinda like tying up a loose end. Again, another main character happens to swim to a beach after their ship is destroyed... Was it entertaining? Yeah. But I just don't buy AT ALL the premise that Danny would burn the entire city for the hell of it, so it leaves me kindof lacking. Sansa better damn hope Ayra/Jon kill Danny, because if not, Danny's coming for her for telling Tyrian about Jon's identity. Btw, Varys is not a merman. I hope GRRM finishes the books adn somebody re-does seasons 5-x with the source material, assuming it's better than this spectacle first blah-blah-blah. As long as it's not all White Walker focused, because that would bore me. The big winner in all of this MIGHT be GRRM IF he actually finishes the story and it's good. I also feel supremely bad for Emelia Clarke. I thought she did exactly what she needed to in both the last 2 episodes, and the writing completely let her down. Maisie Williams is a bad ass and should have a very good career. Kit Harrington does an awesome job playing dumbfounded. As long as he sticks with that, he'll be great. Otherwise, he needs to retire and just bone Rose Leslie all the time.

    I think it’s going to be spectacular with less attention to detail. Which will be disappointing. 2 hours. I agree, this is the make or break episode for the season.

    She is just awesome. There was a clip wit her her on Kimmel talking about how she ruined meeting Beyonce, where is seems like she can't even comprehend why Beyonce would come up to her. (starts at 2:06) It was absolutely precious. Then I think of this, which makes me smile all the time: All the main characters seem to have great personalities, though I honestly haven't seen Kit in any interview for some reason. I loved the bit where Maisie faked a spoiler for April fools. That was pretty cool...
