  1. They pax taxes but their loyalty is otherwise shallow and they don't aid the crown when it's threatened and such. Only Tywin helped Joffrey, and that's because he is family and wants his legacy and heirs on the throne. Stannis with only the men of a single region would've easily taken King's Landing if it wasn't for the combined Lannister / Tyrell force. The US government analogy is invalid as the federal government is financially and militarily powerful, with a very large standing army directly loyal to it. Some states have their own militias but they pale in comparison to the might of the federal army, always have. The states would be foolish to try and rebel or secede against such a force, some like Texas have tried but all have failed. In Westeros on the hand, rebellion is easy and the crown can't do much about it. The civil war in the US was not a free for all with semi-autonomous regions each doing what they wanted, it was simply North vs South. The revolutionary war was likewise two sided, between a monarchy and the colonists who wanted freedom, they had the resources and man power to rebel but it was a long hard victory that could've ended up with Britain victorious. In Westeros, when the other regions rebel, especially in unison, the crown is fucked, it has little or no chance without others coming to it's aid, due to it's small population and military prowess. The regions still paying tribute to the crown so long after the Targaryen invasion and death of the dragons is actually absurd and nonsensical, as it lacks the military might to enforce such.

    Very interesting theory, I would much prefer that than to have her totally betray her morals and inner character.
  3. They've been independent since the start of the story. Only some of the houses fought for the Mad King, only Tywin fought for Joffrey. The Crownlands are not powerful, they don't have the military prowess to enforce any allegiance. It's like if Iowa tried to be the central government for New York, California and Texas, with each of those three being subservient to it, doesn't work. The Targaryens only united Westeros due to military might and dragons.

    Oh right I forgot. But still, 3 mad Targaryens in a row is a too much. It should have been a Luke & Leia situation, she's his sister once removed after all, it would've made much better story I think.

    Right but that happens in the episode 3, then we get the son Luke not following in the foot steps and instead fighting against him in episodes 4 - 6. In GOT the first we already had two bad apples : The Mad King and Viserys. The Dragon's daughter should have transcended the trend and gone the opposite way, otherwise what's the point? There is no Luke analog to her, she's the last Targaryen, it's all over.

    Well the books aren't out yet so we don't know how things pan out exactly in them, and how the readers will respond. I love GRRM's style, and I actually enjoy how to properly portrays war and isn't afraid to kill off main characters. Many others feel the same of course, so what you are saying here is not true. There are people who like simple and sugar coated, and others who like harsh and gritty, it's always been that way and there is nothing different now in the modern day. All that being said, I think sometimes what is real and ugly, doesn't always make the best story. As I gave above in an analogy, imagine if Luke was corrupted and joined the Sith instead of helping bring them down? Is that different from Disney everybody's happy bullshit? Of course it is, but it's not a good story, it's a pointless narrative because the character doesn't transcend the trend. I like to root for characters, that doesn't mean they have to be good two shoes all the time, but fantasy epic protagonists should be overall good / redeemable / redeemed, otherwise why care about them? Before Dany's decline (and especially before she came to Westeros) she was only one of two characters that was in a position of power who we could care about and who was suppose to be a good person, the other being Jon. What's the honest fucking point of another mad Targaryen? The Mad King's daughter filled his shoes and then some, the end. Bravo, now let me shit out my pop corn.

    I've considered writing fantasy dramas myself, but I am so disturbed by this shit that I think I'll stick to comedic memes.

    Umm no, being civilians under the rule of the enemy does not make you an enemy. Civilians voted for Hitler, so what, they believed in false hopes of a great German Empire. Syria was destroyed by the US and it allies funding armed rebels and terrorists there, as well as drone striking and bombing into oblivion. Civilians can be terrorists, doesn't mean they all are. The people Dany killed were not terrorists, and certainly not a threat to anyone. I was hoping you were trolling or something but you are clearly a psychopathic nutcase. The only thing I can say to people like you who have a total lack empathy is, I hope you wind up on the end of what you believe is justified.

    Sadly I think it does. Martin told Dumb & Dumber the ending and major plot points. The Night King, and Arya's killing of him, is of course made the hell up, but this is probably how it goes down in the books. Now undoubtedly the books will make her descent into madness more believable, but I still don't think it makes for good story. I mean imagine if Luke joined the Sith and replaced his father Darth Vader instead of transcending the trend and putting an end to them.

    She was mad all along... I don't think that is madness... Burning down cities for the sake of doing so isn't mad... Do you think before you type? How can a person contradict themselves in the next sentence without realizing, and then continue to make illogical statements. It doesn't matter what it's the way of, madness is madness. If being a serial killer runs in the family the police don't well golly gee shucks, he comes from a long line, not crazy at all, lets let him go.

    Troll, crazy, stupid, I can't tell..... No shit Sherlock, because I'm not a noble blonde haired dragon riding girl about to mass murder innocents for no fucking reason. Yeah she said that, because she is mad. How does her stating it before hand not make her mad? How about this, I am going to kill my neighbor for no reason, there now it won't be madness when I do it. They chose to run because they were getting torched you son of Einstein, what fucking difference does it matter which way they ran? They wouldn't have to run if it wasn't for some lich on a lizard destroying everything in site. Their military was destroyed first thing off the bat.

    Yes, actually that was the stupidest aspect to begin with, more of Dumb & Dumbers fantastic writing. In the Battle of Blackwater Cersei ordered some deserters executed, I would expect people to be trying to get away here also.

    In this show, the bells were rung and the enemy surrendered, so she won the war. They only ran after she started burning them alive. Please tell me what they hell you would do in such a situation? She already had King's Landing when the bell's rung, it was over, she went mad after that. Imagine if the allies bombed every German city to the ground after the fall of Hitler just cause they were ticked, would that not be mad?

    Oh.....my.........dog....... The enemy surrendering means you don't have to kill the civilians, how hard is that to comprehend? No they didn't run to Cersei, they ran all over the place and hid because a fucking dragon was burning shit down genius. Civilians run for their lives when they panic, and try to get away from whatever is going to hurt / kill them or their loves ones, obviously. They don't surrender, they don't fight, and they aren't a threat to you, that's why they are called civilians. How the hell would Cersei protect them?
