    Wished they would have taken some of the dragon death budget and put it into the wolf death budget.

    I know it's a TV show but there is absolutely no justification, militarily or otherwise, for Dany to indiscriminately kill thousands of civilians. That is definitely not a "right" answer.

    Yes, to answer your question. Honestly, maybe looking back at it, Dany might even be more evil than Cersei. Yes, Cersei blew up the Sept of Baelor and killed a good number of people, most of them innocent, but at least she had reason to do it in order to take out the Sparrows. Cersei is narcissistic, cruel, and any other number of awful characteristics, but she didn't slaughter for the sake of slaughter the way Dany did in this episode.

    "I looked and there before me was a pale horse. Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind her."

    The overwhelming focus will be on Dany this week which is too bad because I thought the rest of the episode was good. Arya leaving just as she got there was odd, but I'm fine with the storylines they closed.

    Jamie still got to be the good guy, I don't understand the people saying his redemption arc was ruined. Qyburn and the Cleganes got what they deserved. Grey Worm continuing to show more and more emotion. A dragon being as powerful as it feels like a dragon should be, especially with how vulnerable they've felt for awhile.

    So, mad queen and all... fine.

    But at least pull your troops out of the city first. Probably killed some of her own in that annihilation.

    This show is way past worrying about those kind of details.

    What cheat code did Arya type to spawn in a fresh horse?

    Crushed by rubble because of a failed plan by Tyrion and Jamie. So maybe she was killed by her younger brothers after all.

    The S8E5-6 leaks (on reddit) were like 99% spot on so far so if you want the answer I can tell you...

    If you're a book reader this is probably great. Everyone being pissed about how the show ends will probably provide GRRM with some motivation to both finish and give a better and totally different ending.

    There is no WAY Dany killed those people just for the sake of slaughter. NO WAY. Ramsey was that character. The poised prince kid was that character.

    Yep. GRRM beta testing his ending and will probably change his plan now that he’s seeing angry viewer reactions.

    GRRM doesn’t have to worry. He will never finish the books but now can sit back and criticize what the shows writers did to his story.

    Whining nerds on Twitter who are pissed that they didn't get the ending they had manufactured in their minds prior to the airing isn't exactly an overwhelming opinion, just a loud minority.

    I mean you can look back on real human history and see savage murderous armies that looted and raped and committed atrocities, it's our "modern" view that's shocked. Dragons aside, plenty of historical leaders wouldn't be shocked by this. I mean really, Jon never saw an army go bloodlust? I guess he did miss the trashing of the riverlands.
