    A season of Jons betrayal

    I think Jon’s decision to kill Daenerys came right near the end. She was unwilling to admit in any way that her actions had been wrong. No mercy for anyone. She was going to execute Tyrion and anyone who had supported or fought for Cersei. Power had finally corrupted her and when she asked Jon to join her on her world conquest I couldn’t help but think of that scene in Star Wars where Darth Vader was asking Luke to join him on the Dark Side of The Force. He knew she was beyond redemption at that point and had to be stopped. I will admit the writing was rushed and forced in the final season but I agree with Jon’s decision.

    People's reaction to Dany turning Mad Queen says something about us as humans

    Heck.....I am just going to blame it all on the 3ER. Bran is responsible for everything that happened. He probably warged Dany and made her go mad and then he warged into Jon and plunged that knife into Dany. Next he warged into Drogon and melted the IR. I don’t trust him and I hope the prequel sheds some light on the origins of the first 3ER.
  3. I mentioned this in another post but will repost it here. Emilia in her interview with The New Yorker says that the showrunners told her early on that Daenerys arc was like that of Lawrence of Arabia. It is about power corrupting a person absolutely. I remember the boys—our writers and showrunners—telling me that Daenerys’s arc is that of Lawrence of Arabia. I watched “Lawrence of Arabia,” and I was, like, “Great, cool. He’s brilliant. He survived, and it’s wonderful.” But then you remember how that movie ended, with Lawrence’s disintegration. I didn’t quite put those two things together. Or maybe I didn’t want to see it coming because I care about Daenerys too much. Can you talk about that a little more, how Daenerys’s arc is like Lawrence of Arabia’s life? Well, fundamentally, he’s brought in as a savior. He goes in and fights for the people, but then, ultimately, it’s a story about how power corrupts absolutely. You see power turn this man wild and mad. He can’t see anymore through the haze, the giddy highs, of being in charge. And that’s what Daenerys experiences. And yet I care for her so much. She’s been a part of me for so long that, in reading this script, I did what any actor is told to do and would do. You have to agree with your character. If you don’t agree with your character, then you shouldn’t take the job. I really just had to sit there and wrestle with how I could make good on what they had written. Because that’s her. They are the writers. They have made this woman, and I’m going to take on what it is and try and interpret that to my best ability. Now, when I showed the first glimmer of coldness, in Season 1, when Khal Drogo kills my brother, Viserys Targaryen—Jason [Momoa] kills Harry Lloyd . . .

    No.....they didn’t tell her at the last moment. I am quoting from Emilia’s interview with The New Yorker.

  5. The grass always appears greener on the other side.....until you’ve tried it out. I don’t think the wildlings felt like they fit in and were accepted. Some of them probably liked it south of the wall but not all them. They wanted to go home. They just wanted the freedom to wander without the confines of the Wall and to getaway from the White Walkers. I don’t think there is a real NW anymore. It was just a ruse by Tyrion to convince GW not to kill Jon. The only folks there when they opened the gates were Tormund and the wildlings. The supposedly NW who accompanied him had no fresh recruits with them and let Jon lead.
  6. Guess what? I was a Daenerys fan and read it. I believe the signs were there but was just hoping her better side would prevail. It didn’t and I accept it.
  7. If this has already been posted.....then I apologize for reposting. I thought the foreshadowing of Daenerys going mad with the flower Daario presented her was interesting. I don’t think I had heard that one before. https://www.businessinsider.com/game-of-thrones-daenerys-mad-queen-foreshadowing-2019-5
  8. It was an excellent article. She was very professional and mature when answering the questions. I hope she has a bright future ahead for her. She is definitely one of my favs.

    Where did Jon go ? SPOILERS

    Did Bran know all the time he is the future king?

    Do we know who the first 3ER was? Was there one before Brynden Rivers? I wonder if his origins will be addressed in the prequel or the final two books? I just don’t fully trust Bran. I guess I should...but I don’t.
  11. Looks like HBO is anxious to move us on to the prequel. Just noticed they have a teaser out today.
  12. There were also hints that Daenerys wouldn’t end up like her father too. There were scenes showing her compassion for slaves by freeing them. Stopping the Dothraki from raping a woman. Listening to the counsel of Barristan Selmy and Tyrion. There were hints that she might become pregnant. Hints that she could be happy with Jon living near that waterfall. It was just the writers’ choice to finally go down her dark side instead. I accept that and I do see the biggest hint of all.....her family motto of Fire and Blood! Ultimately.....she couldn’t escape what she felt was her destiny. If not love.....then fear. She went there and it was her downfall.

    Edmure Should Have Got It

    I don’t think Edmure would have made a good king but it did piss me off that Sansa cut him off. I wanted to hear what he had to say....lol.

    The "council" was simply a rubber stamp

    It definitely was a rubber stamp for Bran. Why weren’t they more skeptical of the Three Eyed Raven and who exactly he really was and his motives. The 3ER could prove just as dangerous as Daenerys long term with his powers of warging and shaping events according to what he sees best.
  15. THIS! I have been a Daenerys fan but I am convinced this is what GRRM intended. The TV series just should have devoted more time to develop her descent into madness. I truly believe now that this is the endgame. Her dragons were the equivalent of WMD and the closer she got to taking power then the more she seemed justified that she alone was right in her decisions. Power is corruptive and even the best of people can succumb to its corrosive influence given the right circumstances. Daenerys had that with the lost of her children, her closest advisors, and finally the man she loved shunning her. Sad and tragic but the intended result.
  16. The more I think about it then the more I am convinced that Bran is just plain creepy. Tyrion calls him Bran the Broken. He is not BRAN.....he is now the Three Eyed Raven by his own admission. Don’t they realize he is something other than human? Why do they trust him? He may prove just as dangerous as Daenerys. His ability to warg and manipulate people or events to his desired ends could prove disastrous long term. Many may have been blind not to see the signs of Daenerys oncoming madness but so are Tyrion and the Great Council’s confident trust regarding Bran IMO.

    Purpose of the wall now ?

    There is not a Night King in the books. Just The Others. So I expect things to play out differently.
  18. We didn’t recognize early on because we were so distracted by Joffrey, the Boltons, Ramsey Snow, Cersei and all the butchery and killings going on in Westeros. Dany kept talking about breaking the wheel and that she would end all their political games and atrocities. After all, they were sending assassins to murder her in Essos so the folks in Westeros must be the real bad guys. Right? Little did we truly recognize that she would be more villainous than them in the long run.

    Did Bran know all the time he is the future king?

    Yes....he was manipulating them all to achieve a desired end. That is why he was telling Jon and I think Theon too that they were where they were supposed to be. He knew he was going to become king and that is why he came south. He really started the ball rolling when it was so urgent for Sam to tell Jon about his parents.

    Bittersweet?

    No....you are not in the minority. This is exactly what I thought too.

    Your favorite individual acting performance

    This may surprise some of you but I was most impressed with Alfie Allen as Theon. He had a wonderful character arc. He made me feel such a range of emotions about Theon/Reek. I cried when he was killed. He was a good man.
