This is also why his final confrontation had to be with Jaime, the other guy who fucked the queen.
    Some people are not very complicated. Euron was a simple man with a simple dream. Which he realized, and then died happy. It was a beautiful story.

    God I hope the books come out. Euron is anything but a simple man. Thanks D&D for butchering him.

    I'm just here for the bad ass visuals and watching a dragon destroy a city. Hopefully the last episode has more mindless destruction or its going to suck really bad.
    The last episode should be some characters processing what just happened, some emotional outbursts, followed by a new plan, followed by the plan not working for a while, and then finally someone's plan works. Would be surprised if there is much destruction. I'm crossing my fingers for something that helps us understand what happens to everyone but... that's probably too much to ask for.

    Even if the cripple Bran becomes king, there is still hope for a final twist involving the Night King. What if he is secretly controlling Bran through his mark? He is a NECROMANCER, necromancers in fantasy stories never die so easily and often pull strings from beyond the grave,
    Remember, control demands sacrifice. Power never comes without a price. You risk losing those closest to you in order to save them. This is the bargain we have made.

    You're really determined to see this theory come to fruition, huh.

    This is but one of multiple theories that the thousands upon thousands of Night King fans have come up with.

    They really disappointed with Bran, I will say that. I was expecting some huge warg revelation after episode 3, or even just some warg prominence later, but it's just been nothing.

    Did D&D smoke the same kind of stoner psychadelic that the "Morally Grey Sylvannas" wow-authors did?

    I mean come fucking on...
    I don't mind if you call me or another Trump supporter racist/fascist...

    I don't know I feel like Bran will play a pivotal part in the prequel. It's inexplicable how the most powerful character in the show has been utterly useless. He did nothing to stop the Night King he knew what would happen but did nothing but bait the Night King. He knew Dany would flip like this and did nothing to stop her. Bran is just inexcusable and how D&D handled him.

    This is the best looking episode hands down in my opinion.

    She lost the (physical) love from Jon after he found out she is his aunt.
    She had to deal with an abundance of terror and death in the Winterfell battle.
    She was let down by Tyrion and betrayed by Varis, her remaining close advisors.
    She was never well received in the north in the first place: they didnt want her as queen, they didnt show gratitude for helping them against NK.
    And there's more I'm sure.
    Besides that she has shown to be ruthless against her enemies many times before. And she is a Targaryen who apparently have a history of going mad.

    So, is it all that surpising that she lost it at King's Landing...??
    Not surprising to anyone that watched the show, saw the signs and knows the history of her family.

    Just seems surprising to "Team Dany" who are all boohoo about her arc.

    I heard a suggestion that the Iron Bank should "win" the Iron Throne. That indeed sounds more interesting than a retread of God Emperor of Dune. Feels like it'd fit right in. A huge amount of infrastructure in Westeros had been broken down and requisitioned for use and outright destroyed during the war, and the economy is in ruins due to war exhaustion and mismanagement. The bank has the resources to rebuild Westeros and their organization would be pretty stable, far more so than the feudal system. Jon prefers to serve, not to rule, and he'd probably be fine becoming a paladin who kept the world going, just like the paladins during the Crusades who were instrumental in handling bank notes as well as being chivalrous. Put Davos, Jaime, Brienne, Bronn, and Gendry in that slot too. The nobility of Westeros would also be more willing to acquiesce to the bank which was indifferent during the war rather than having to suck up years of hatred and bow their head to some guy they personally hate, so that'd smooth over relations as well. A bank takeover would also naturally lead in to a more democratic government over time, so there's you're high note ending.

    There are a lot of shows that drag on way too many seasons, and you can tell that they're just running on fumes, and jumped the shark years ago, and it leaves a stink on the series.

    Game of Thrones is not one of those shows. This is one of those shows that actually demands many seasons to properly flesh out.

    The showrunners would not have the gall to have a bank rule the Seven Kingdoms. The alt-right morons would mass ejaculate and /pol/ would meltdown.

    Qyburn isn't a better necromancer than the Night King simply because he created a physically stronger undead (which is debatable, I think a wight giant or Viserion could easily crush the Mountain). The NK simply chose quantity over quality. He doesn't give a shit about strong troops as the true power of his army lies in the sheer numbers, as was displayed perfectly at the Battle of Winterfell, where it was clearly shown just how overwhelming the forces of the undead where, to the point that towards the end of the episode the entire castle was swarmed with wights. Like locusts on a tree.

    Bullshit. The list of horrible things she went through prior to all of that would be almost twice as long, but she didn’t go full on crazy eyes sociopath before. If anything she had been gaining more composure throughout the show as she matured and consolidated her power. No more shrieking about fire and blood like back in Essos before she learned more about her history.

    You’re also an idiot if you think all the people criticizing her “arc” are Team Dany. Bad writing is bad writing regardless of how much you like or dislike a character. I’ve been expecting her to become a villain for years now. They set her up as someone who might go harder on burning prisoners or surrendering soldiers and the like. If they wanted to go with the Targaryen madness angle they could have actually done that by showing signs of developing mental illness (lashing out after a bad week isn’t Targaryen madness).

    To recap:
    Burning prisoners or surrendering soldiers, really bad but something an angry Dany might do
    Massacring 100,000s of defenseless civilians AFTER the battle is over, Hitler levels of evil and not something that was foreshadowed for this character

    I actually like her more now that she went full apeshit on King's Landing. It was fun for me to see her turn into Daddy's girl and burn the whole city to the ground.
