    Dany has always had an issue with impulse control.I see a lot of people saying, “why would she burn the city? She already won.” Earlier in this same episode she told Jon that she had experienced no love at all since she arrived in Westeros and then basically gets friend zoned by one of the few people who does love her. So she literally said, “Fear,then” and “mercy will not be our weakness anymore.” All that said, in her victory moment staring at the red keep and hearing the bells ringing for “mercy” she’s probably re-playing all the shit she’s been through since arriving in Westeros. All the times she chose “mercy” and lost her own people. And in this moment she must decide again between mercy or fear and obviously she decides fear. She has always been entitled and in her mind probably already sees anyone who stayed loyal to Cersei by even staying in King’s Landing, an enemy. And what does she doe to enemies? Dracarys
    Your making this into a black or white issue. She doesn't need to kill an entire city (including her army) to instill fear into her enemies. She could have done a hundred other things that were a little less extreme. She could have flown up to the Red Keep and roasted Cersei and all the people inside there. She could have executed everyone who stood against her after the battle. There are plenty of ways she could inspired fear without going bat shit crazy villian. Why did she go crazy? Cause the show runners need her too, but for me they didn't do enough to earn it.

    The same way I didn't think Sansa withholding information from Jon in Battle of the Bastards was earned. There are plenty of other examples of them eneeding the plot to go in a certain direction but not making it believable. 
    But now you’re making into a “she could’ve done this or that”. She has a history of impulse control and actually going extreme with those impulses and she made a bad impulsive decision. It’s no different than arguing a refs bad call during a sports game. Does this ref have a history of making poor calls? Yes, but that doesn’t stop him from making them again in the future 
    I dare you to give one example of an impulsive decision she made that even comes close to murdering a million people for no practical reason. She knew her own soldiers were fighting down there, when has she ever indiscriminately killed those loyal to her?

     Maybe it worked for you, but it didn't for me and plenty others.

    That’s like if some piece of shit murders his wife after years of abuse someone saying “show me when he has ever killed someone!”

    I hope something creates a video showing how Dany can easily become the mad queen. 

    just a few examples I can think of. 

    She makes a deal deal with the slavers for the unsullied and then goes back on the deal and kills the slaver and takes both the army and her dragon. 

    She burns the Tully’s. 

    She is so caught up with being the ruler and her right to rule that she threatens Jon and calls him out as a traitor. 

    Honestly she has done nothing good besides free slaves. Which is why she struggles in Westeros. Because they are not slaves. They are people who can make their own decisions on who to follow and she struggles with it. She was never a good leader and she consistently leaned on violence to proof her leadership.  

    She was never a good leader. Tell me one thing she did that showed diplomacy, patience, trust, respect and political gamesmanship. There isn’t one. Cuz she was never a good ruler. The series has been leading up to this moment. And I know a lot of people are pissed because they thought they followed the hero’s journey with Dany. But they didn’t. 

    Cant wait for Sansa, Arya and Jon to put her in her place. 
    You forgot the 487 times she declares “I am your Queen!”

    I have re-watched the entire series 4 times and can tell you with certainty that Dany and Jamie’s actions are 100% in line with their character. I don’t like it, just like I don’t like it when Ned gave Cersei a chance to leave KL or when Robb fell in love because he’s a horny teenager. But those were also in line with their character. Something out of character this episode was Varys being so openly treasonous. Now that was out of character

    I don’t think I’m gonna listen at all this week then. Not gonna let them ruin the final episode for me. I thought the whole point of “fan bankruptcy” was to not get all butt hurt if book theories don’t pan out
