So...what was the final WTF moment ?

Recommended Posts

They said the show had 3 big shocking WTF moments. We still had 1 to go and nothing in S8 was a WTF moment besides the horrible season.

Was the last one the death of GOT ?

For me it is Daenerys turning berserk in E5. That is a real twist and turning point.

Jon killing Daenerys was expected at that moment.

Either Jon killing Dany, or D&D killing Dany's true character to serve plot, or D&D killing Jon's character so he appears torn about offing Dany because SURPRISES!

If Dany truly were Mad Dany she wouldn't have let Jon walk around KL for a second.  He's the closest and most significant threat to her rule and Mad Dany would surround herself with soldiers at all times and have Jon killed before anything else.  But she didn't get super Aerys II paranoid, nor did she have someone take out Jon,  It has to be one Dany or the other...

The Jon Snow we watched until a season or 2 ago wouldn't even have thought twice - he saw KL surrender as well as the KL and GC soldiers putting down their swords.  Then he sees Dany start ruthlessly torching everyone.  There's no gray area - he watches her committing genocide.

He would've offed her right atop those steps as she was Nazi-rallying.  And, like Ned, he honorably would've gladly accepted being killed right then and there and he STILL would've killed her when he got close enough to her.  

The way they altered Dany and Jon to put them in this position really makes it really difficult to believe.

The most disciplined army in history became the most undisciplined army in the 7 kingdoms sometime between the Battle of Winterfell and the Battle of Kings Landing?

Until it was retconned in the finale as "under Queen Danaerys' orders" so they could punch that baby from yet another direction...

...like the cool dragon-wings image also implying (pretty ham-fisted) Devil wings - Dany - Devil - Dany - EVIL - DANY

I really don't have a problem with Dany going evil or mad queen. All the signs were there. But do it plausibly. Jaime convicting the Lannister army to stand down and ring the bells only for Qyburn to have a hidden scorpion take a shot at Drogon would've been a better trigger for her to go all fire and blood. It'd still be an overreaction to torch all the civilians and women and children, but at least she doesn't just do it..... cause reasons.

I'm going for Bran as king, but I'm hoping I'm wrong. You can like or dislike Jon killing Dany, but given the story about the forging of Lightbringer etc, it wasn't that surprising.

The dragon picking her up like he did.

Also the intelligence of the dragon when it wanted to burn down the throne. Knowing the hunger for power caused all problems.
