I’m going to put myself through this episode one more time for the sake of finding more to like in it.
I honestly have no idea why Jamie was a prisoner. He was already on the good side so why capture him at all? Was it just lack of trust or to push Tyrion to the final treason?
Cersei was such a great character but this season she’s had about 10 lines? I mean Lena acts the shit out of her emotions and it’s great, but I just feel everyone has become shadows of their former characters. So much so that you can’t even care about them. When the building fell on The two of them I just shrugged. Sigh.
I guess the last episode will be our final hopes being dashed. At this point I almost expect Dany to live so they can just screw the fans one more time
I guess I've put myself in Dany's shoes a bit on this. From the time she could talk she's been told and told how her birthright was robbed and everyone betrayed their family. She even talks about it being a bed time story for her about Jamie.
Then through some providence she has these 3 dragons and life changes dramatically, even seemingly preordained as she frees city after city in slaver bay until learning a hard lesson in Myreen. Still, she's never told how difficult it will really be until perhaps Tyrion, but even so she has a mental note that the people want her there and she is their savior.
Fast forward to landing, and she is a stranger in a strange land, no one really seems to want her there, her main ally is the North via Jon and he has a much larger mission to bring her into which causes a loss of one dragon and the first taste of pure grief that she's had since she lost her child and Khal. She falls in love which makes her even more of a stranger in the North where she is only feared and quickly loses any close friends she has along with her military strength in this battle with the dead. Add to it her only actual claim and "right to rule" is now not legitimate with Jon being told who he really is.
Now she's down another "child" and her closes female friend and seemingly has no one to trust at all with only one goal now that she can't turn from no matter how hard it is.
I can see her just saying fuck it, I want the throne, if I die then at least I die reaching for what I've always wanted and if I win then I can deal with it all after the fact.
still...she should have swung around the back of those damn ships...
Apologies if this was already pondered. But clearly they were waiting for a Dany at dragonstone So clearly either they knew she was coming or just were lucky and waited.
My question is, who is the leak? His was before Varys began talking treason so is there someone else or will we end up never knowing?
