Game Of Thrones Fans React To That Daenerys Twist

But Dany wasn't finished with her dragons after burning Varys to a crisp. However, for all the gruesome spectacle we saw, the episode still had a bunch of tiny, quiet flourishes that might have escaped your notice on first watch. "I think the biggest surprise is he came back for her. Cersei realizes just how she loves him and just how much he loves her".

"And if circumstances had been different, I don't think this side of Dany ever would have come out".

After eight seasons of outwitting her enemies in the nick of time, Cersei Lannister's rule is finally over. Arya approaches a crowd of soldiers who appear to be gathered around something, a group of Dothraki raise their scimitars and whoop in approval, and Daenerys looks over what's left of her new kingdom with the Unsullied arrayed before her.

"It's the most authentic connection she's ever had", she continued. "So at the very time when she needs guidance and those kind of close friendships the most, everyone's gone". "I don't wanna be king", he said.

According to Weiss, however, Dany didn't decide upon total and utter destruction until those bells were rung.


So, it seems quite unlikely that she would suddenly switch gears and decide to pursue a quiet beachfront life with her beau, but it's not altogether impossible, especially with all the dizzying character changes of this season. "It's in that moment on the walls of King's Landing, when she's looking at that symbol of everything that was taken from her, when she makes the decision to make this personal".

The creators of Game of Thrones made a very deliberate choice to not only have Missandei be the one captured by Euron Greyjoy - though she was, presumably, already on a skiff headed for shore when the fleet was attacked - but grant her a death that felt, at best, undeserved, and at worst, like a deliberate insult to the character and everything she represents.

"We've done some work together in Denmark". "Jaime talked about dying in the arms of the woman he loved, and this is it", Benioff said.

After they left Winterfell together, Arya told the Hound that she didn't intend to return home, so if she were to go down fighting, or perhaps even win in a bout with the Mother of Dragons and stick around to help clean up the mess, that would certainly make good on that promise.

Emilia Clarke knew this was coming.
