That may be true, but it's setting the bar awfully low.

I agree, lol. It was intended to be a veiled insult. Fuck the show, and fuck the king.

It is a pretty spectacular failure though, that they've been getting away with their plot holes, inconsistent characterization, dumb battles..for  years, and yet this season, which they spent, allegedly twice as long on, has been so incredibly, brutally stupid that now a significant segment of a fan base that until now, couldn't be alienated, is alienated.  That's quite an accomplishment.

On to Star Wars.  LMAO.

Maybe when D & D said they needed two years to get it right, what they meant was accomplishing the impossible and making their greatest, most ass-licking of fans realise they're idiots?

Also, Dany's not dumb, she knows Sansa is conniving.

lolwut?!! it's quite the opposite. sansa has a very long track record of being betrayed and abused by people who were supposed to protect her. she's played the game for a long time now and thus honed the skill of spotting a bullshitter when she sees one, which is exactly what she saw in dany from day one. if anything, sansa's character developed immensely from the stupid little girl she once was by breaking her toxic cycle of trusting awful people who promised her an elevated social status. this is only further grounded by her bonding with arya and jon. two people that she couldn't stand as a child due to her posh viewpoint on the world.

And you're not going to say Dany had a similar, even more powerful journey? 

 

Sansa was an oathbreaker since day 1. She gave Jon Snow the King in the North title and he bent the knee, she already committed treason by not accepting Dany as queen. But did Dany blast her? No. She did everything she could to please Sansa who was being unreasonable. 

 

Even after Dany sacrificed her armies for the WW Sansa was still being manipulative. Sansa has no honor and capes for her rapists. I'm hoping the books go another way with her because she was one of my favorites in the books.
