    It was great the first 4 maybe 5 seasons. Completely shit the bed when the book source material ran dry.

    Varys might also be a Blackfyre which was why the wizard wanted his cock&balls (kingsblood) and why he's conspiring to put fake Aegon (also possibly Blackfyre) on the throne. The gift Illyrio sends to fake Aegon may be the Blackfyre sword.

    One of my buddy’s theory sounded good, but he told me none of his theories have come true yet. Anyways, he thinks Arya kills Danny, then takes her face, and tells the people John is the true king, she is giving the throne to him, then they give Danny a public tragic death to get her out of the picture. Knowing what the writers did this season, they probably won’t think of something that clever.

    As far as Danny going nuts from the bells ringing? Seems silly that that's what drove her over the edge. They discussed it on a podcast and discussed how a listener came up with a different version that would have worked better I feel. The dragon doesn't get killed in the episode prior, she still has two for the battle at kings landing. They start the battle, they are kicking butt and then she lands on the wall like she did with her two dragons, she thinks Cerci and kings landing has surrendered, the bells start ringing, and then someone shoots her other dragon with the crossbow which then pushes her over the edge and kills everyone. That gives a more shocking death for the dragon, it’s an event where we can see why she goes ape shit, and kills everyone. why can't the writers, who do this for a living think of shit like that?

    Oh, I know, but I was just referring to the people in the capital. I'm sure they'll love her now. LOL

    I watched that vignette by the writers following the episode. The skinny writer said she snapped because the moment she saw the Red Keep because it brought back all these memories of how her family built it, yet her father was killed, blah de blah. I thought it was a totally weak explanation that only plays to the point that they were just looking to quickly wrap up and close shop.

    Personally, I could buy into the narrative that she snapped because pretty much everyone she was close to has abandoned her or died off, or betrayed her, but to off the entire city? That's even lunacy to a lunatic! :jj:

    Or she guns it for the Red Keep, charging toward Cersei and burn her alive - fitting ending for a bitch. Someone with the crossbow kills the dragon and Dany as she flies away [because there still will be a few devoted left, after all], so she dies trying to liberate the people, and Jon steps up and takes the throne.

    That would be the happy Hollywood ending. Cliche'd of course, but most people would be satisfied. But the lazy writers boxed themselves into a corner.

    No matter. The takeaway in all this is that they could have done a far better job, they had two years to get it right and they are fucking it up royal.

    So in retrospect Jon is a fucking idiot for not just shutting his mouth, ruling with Dany and keep plowing her

    Almost the same plot as kingdom of heaven. The king wanted Orlando Bloom to kill the dickhead married to the princess and marry her and rule Jerusalem. His honor wouldn't let him, so dickhead starts a war with the arabs and everyone dies

    Good point, I think he wanted people to know he was king without having to tell them himself.

    why not just hand the show off to people who want to do it? I'm sure D&D would have kept getting royalties or some kind of compensation

    Prediction: Jon will kill Dany. Tyrion will die. Bran will be king of Westeros.
