    Game of Thrones has proven to be the golden age of the meme.

    She heard that theory and rejected it. She's as self-serving as they come. But Daeny is no better, turns out.

    I've been bugged by this too, especially when you see Inside the Episode pieces where they show all the giant tanks of propane(?) they need just to make the non-CGI flames.

    Dragon thermodynamics are rather fanciful..

    It also seemed to have much more force than just flamethrowers, exploding large ships and knocking down large city walls and towers. But I'm glad they did it like that, as it made for great, fun visuals.

    It was a blast!

    I agree that the last two seasons have been rushed, with lazy, bog standard Hollywood action movie quality writing. But I was not at all surprised by Dany going full Mad queen. Remember how she reacted when Drogo poured molten gold on Viserys head? Zero emotion, “He was no dragon”!! And that was her BROTHER, as horrible a twat as he was. She’s always been ruthless, and her ego is massive. She’s obviously good somewhere in there, but her family egomania and madness is just too powerful.

    Read the story on Lena Headey making $48K (or even higher) per minute on Season 8 episodes. Remarkable. That's some life goals right there.

    I just read that over at, 32,000 fans have signed a petition to HBO asking for a 'do-over' of season 8!;)

    yeah, as well as Varys maybe poisoning her, further messing up her mental state....but the question is, did they pull it off in a convincing way? did it feel true to her character as a whole, etc? I don't know, felt rushed and off to me, like season 10 of Happy Days and all of a sudden the Fonz couldn't pick up chicks. bangs on the jukebox and nothing

    tbh Dany's torching the town is the least of my issues, at least it was exciting and interesting

    now that Cersei is dead, next highest on her Kill list should be Sansa. another reason why it has to end the way most are expecting.
    perhaps Arya tries but fails or Daeny strikes first against her...either way, 'someone' has to step up and protect the family.

    She should definitely burn the dwarf and exile her nephew north of the wall.

    The way that Harry Strickland reacted to the charge of Dany's forces stands in direct contrast to Jon Snow's stand against Ramsey's.

    That’s not all he did. He tried poison Dany. But I liked Varys and the character.

    When I think of bells ringing and foreboding music, I head straight to the opener of Black Sabbath's self-titled album: Black Sabbath Black Sabbath
    Yes, I recognize the rain doesn't fit, but I think the music -- featuring the "devil's interval" -- suits the tragedy of the situation.

    One of the VFX guys said in the "Game Revealed" for this episode that Drogon wasn't quite Godzilla-level but almost.

    I didn't watch this till Tuesday, so I have avoided "like the plague" reading on the Internet. I have no comments about Daenerys' action.

    I am a bit stupefied by Cersei. Granted, she drank way too much Lannister Koolaid, but she simply stood on the balcony assured of final victory while the whole damn city burned to the ground. Hello . . . is anybody home up there? Nothing particularly cunning or crafty from Cersei, which surprised me.

    Jaime was dead from that fight. This coming back to life stuff is getting old.

    Frikkin' highborn…

    For someone who had been very crafty, methodical, and played his cards close to his vest the entire show, Varys sure did a 180 in that final episode. If anyone broke character I would say it's him.
