The money paid for the Golden Company should go to the Iron Bank to pay Cersei's debt. How could anyone watch the show from the beginning and not see Dany starting to lose it? She said more than once: "They don't get to choose."  If Jon had just held her that last time she was asking for succor, this might have gone differently. We've all seen how much a hug can do to diffuse anger/fear/etc. and I'm not being trite.

Honestly, there were some moments that were okay, but god damn, this episode fucking sucked. I can appreciate that you guys are being more critical than usual, but this is so bad. I don't understand what D&D were doing at all here. Dragon fire is basically as strong as they need it at the moment. Sometimes, it has explosive properties, sometimes it's mehhhh. They didn't set up her going mad Queen nearly enough. They didn't show us her face. The Golden Company did absolutely nothing. What was the point of all this? They even could have made Clegane Bowl better. You could have had Arya try to get to Cersei, and Gregor start beating the shit out of her, until Sandor comes in and saves Arya, killing himself and Gregor in the process. That would have been more satisfying. It's just such a god damn shame. These last 2 seasons honestly ruined this show for me. Don't get me wrong, I love the first 6 seasons, but to have it fail on some a huge scale and to have the BIGGEST REVEAL IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THIS STORY MEAN ABSOLUTELY NOTHING is unforgivable.

Arron have you paid any attention to the books and show, George Martin has made it clear 1.000.000 times that the stupid game DOESN'T MATTER!!!!!!!!!!!! Why do you like SH*T!!!!? EPISODE THREE'S ENDING WAS GARBAGE EPISODE FOUR WAS GARBAGE THIS EPISODE'S STORY IS GARBAGE you are just like the hippies at the Burlington bar you just like and cheer at anything the show does!!! You do know that you and a small few are the minorities in that argument, this season is HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!! The game is only the first book and it's overstated its time in the story, Cersei should've died last season and the Army of the Dead should've both made it to King's Landing and be the end threat because that's good story telling, and it's loyal to what the story has established. This season is just HORSE-SH*T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh and the Night's King's dead was both the worst villain defeat in history plus the worst moment in the entire series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gregor clegane died long ago, Sandor pitied him at the dragon pit. He tells Arya to let the spite go, and he had such a character arc, all ruined for a FUCKING DARK SOULS FIGHT.

Do you think Tyrion stating 4 times during the episode that if the bells ring they have surrendered means anything????? That's some nuanced stuff.

I do mind that Dany went "mad queen", because her character arc was repeating (to a certain extent) Cersei's arc. I mean . . . after six seasons, Cersei came to the point where she went "mad queen" at the end of Season Six. And now, we're expected to swallow a similar arc for Daenerys? Even worse, in such a short space of time? Were Benioff and Weiss that unoriginal? Or was Martin?


That whole spiel about Tagaryens is nonsense and poor writing. It's another attempt to show how certain people are doomed to become evil or insane, because of genetics. This is just sloppy writing of the worst kind.

So the whole plan to get Cersei to have a truce or join them in the war vs the dead turned out to be really important. Dany could never win the iron throne if she went north first.

Recently she has lost two of her dragon 'children', her two closest friends, the man she loves rejects her, she looks at the Red Keep knowing the people who's family killed her father and took her home are within reach, she has recently come out of a horrific war with the dead which resulted in many more human deaths, she knows one of her close advisors tried to poison her thus betraying her, she is going through intense grief....probably even mixed in with the grief of her first husband and dead child as well as being traumatised from all the recent events. All grief tends to come at once and is irrational. I think you have to go through intense grief alone to understand how she could have reached that point. I think its a bit more than 'flipping a coin'.

The prophecy of Cersei dying strangled in the arms of her younger brother came true. It was good.

These two keep trying to find a reason to justify what Daenerys did or a way to writters could've justified it... but that was the point, making her doing something horrible and unjustified. The problem with the series was how they developed that situation.

The problem with Dany was not the razing of King's Landing. It's that she did it after surrender. That bell tolling was the CITY saying they accepted her as the Queen. It wasn't a chime of defeat - not for her - it was a chime of victory. She would have revelled in it. If the show runners wanted to raze Kings Landing, fine. DON'T RING THE BELL. Have the "ring the bell ring the bell" comment from the crowd, but then more shout "no" and "why don't you fuck off back to where you came from you foreign whore?" and jeers. THEN she would raze the city, sure.

The main point that everyone misses about the sacking of King's Landing is that Daenarys DOES NOT TRUST ANYONE anymore with the exception of Greyworm. All she knows if Cersei is that she is a liar and a schemer. Who's to say that Cersei isn't going to pull something during the surrender meeting? She already tricked them once when she promised that Lannister forces would ride north. Sure, Tyrion said that the bells would ring...but he has fucked up every plan for 2 seasons, why should she believe that Tyrion isn't making another poor decision with the release of Jamie and trusting Cersei to run or surrender? She wanted to seal the deal, right then and there.

She also does not care for the Westerosi, not really. Even in earlier episodes she characterizes the fight against the night King as something she's doing for Jon and not for the people of the seven kingdoms. As far as she's concerned, the people of King's Landing are the people who stole everything from her family and fucked everything.

I hope Maisey kept her costume. She'd win 100% of Arya Stark Cosplay events forever afterwards.

I'm honestly the most upset about Sandor. I don't think Clegane bowl needed to happen, i don't think it should have happened. I think it would have been better if Sandor had died for a different reason, or even have lived. I hope Martin makes the end to that more satisfying than the show did. I felt like it made it pointless. I thought they where going to do something with the lord of light and maybe let Sandor take on Banderians flaming sword or what ever to wield his fear against his brother, maybe to protect someone, maybe Arya, rather than need revenge. I don't know, I felt like a waste of an opportunity.

45:08 mark you say stannis wouldn’t do that, Tywin wouldn’t do that.. don’t forget that Tywin in fact DID do that in the original sack of kings landing.

In the end the House of Lanister truly did not matter to Jamie and Cerci. Just as they told each other time and again. Their family, their legacy, their reputation, their status did not matter to them. "The only thing that matters is us". Even as their "house" came crumbling down upon their heads.

My take on danny going full on , the people of kings landing were not innocent they were complicit in getting 2 dragons killed misande et al , the bells ring , they get to surrender they get to live when those otehrs died, f that , burn em all! its not madness its loss and rage and belief

It's almost like she showing Cersei ...you think your bad and will do terrible things...I'll show you who's bad bitch! lady Oleana reflected that she herself lacked imagination! But told the younger Dany to be a Dragon!
