    I might have to give Barney another try. I only saw a few minutes once and clearly got the wrong idea of that show.

    That’s not completely it.

    We saw her insist on ending slavery for the betterment of the people. She crucified the former masters and later regretted it. When she did get to Westeros, she paused her own pursuits to fight the army of the dead... for the people. I just don’t see her killing innocent people AFTER she had won the city. If her ground army was being slaughtered or something like that, then yeah... but she won handily... and then turned into a mass murderer.

    There is something I don't understand. As the bells are ringing, at the moment Danaerys launches her attack that devastates the city and its inhabitants for just a moment an odd look crosses her face that seems unexpected and inappropriate. The closest way I can describe it is "fear" even though at that point she has nothing whatsoever to fear

    You're still projecting your own fantasies.
    Many was the time her advisers had to hold her back from getting medieval.
    You wanted her to be good, she wanted to be good, but like Anakin Skywalker, that dark side was always beckoning.

    I get that, but it still doesn't make sense to do it in that split second. It felt like really lazy writing...give her more than just "oh they're surrendering out of fear and my nephew no longer wants to fuck me." I'm not asking for Breaking Bad levels of descent into being a villain, but she shouldn't just descend into being a villain in that split second. Make something happen, like the ringing of the bells being a ruse concocted by Cersei to slaughter more of her army, or some of the civilians being undercover soldiers. Then I would believe Dany going apeshit on the city.

    It felt like something the writers could have built up more, instead of making another box to check in the "list of things we need to have happen." And as much as I love this show, I think the real downfall of this season is that it is much shorter and trying to rush too many things, which is not how seasons 1-7 operated.

    Me too. 'At least' triggers my minimizing skills. Even there, I'm assuming that despite being the kind of person who would name their kid 'Khaleesi', none of them would name both of two twins the same. But I should probably deduct 1 for the existence of sperm banks.

    Dude... when she took out Astopor, I remember her chastising Jorah & Barristan for trying to talk her out of getting too involved with their politics and she did it because it was the right thing to do. Same thing for Mereen although she did later grow to regret the decision to crucify the masters. She has never once thought it was a good idea to attack and kill innocents to further her goals. Show me one instance where this was the case and someone talked her down... other than King’s Landing.

    I think her acting in this particular season is great... certainly above par for her. I know the look Dayton is talking about and I chalked it up to her finally achieving everything she ever wanted and then suddenly realizing that she’s lost everyone and everything that truly mattered along the way. Jorah, Ser Barriston, Missande, Jon... no one in Westeros was ever going to love her the way she needed. And it scared her. The failure here was not with her acting, but the condensed season, IMHO.

    :huh:

    Assuming there were no use of sperm banks, multiple births or multiple partners, there would be 560 females and 560 males involved in conception.

    Every single one of them should be prohibited from ever having a child again.

    Thus, 1,120. :async:

    (This isn't the Red Room so I'm allowed to do math. :nyer: )

    ANYWAY, back to that crazy bitch we all know and love...

    Khaleesi!

    And Anakin cried about slaughtering Sand People.
    He still fell.

    Jorah: Khaleesi, you have a gentle heart. If you want to win the throne your ancestors built, you will have to get blood on your hands.

    Danaerys: ... The blood of my enemies. Not the blood of innocents... and I do not have a gentle heart.

    Anakin was a giant pussy.

    It's no wonder when he turned to Vader he tried to pretend that he was never Anakin.

    I gotta wonder how fanboys/fangirls would have taken Revenge Of The Sith if Episode 1-6 had come out in the proper order.

    That's true.

    I think there's a disconnect between the two trilogies because you see Vader in the first three as a badass mofo. I mean the guy literally picked someone off the floor and choked him and tossed him like a rag doll in the first movie. In the next one he's just fucking people up and they are his people! Than he beats the shit out of Luke.

    Than in the prequels you have a kid in the first one and then a whiny pussy in the next two. It leaves one thinking, "this guy is Vader?" :wtf:

    Part of Rogue One's popularity to me is that when Vader showed up we got Original Trilogy version Vader. The badass who just cut through rebels like they were ants.

    Of course the crappy writing did not help at all in the prequels.

    Not to mention it was only after he slaughtered the Sand People that the woman he loved finally showed some real interest in him.

    It probably sent him the wrong message. Murder a bunch of innocents. Get your first piece of tail.

    Oh, please.

    Jorah was a pedo who lusted after a kid less than half his age.

    Again, I ask what show you or "gotfans4life" have been watching, because it ain't Game of Thrones.

    Danaerys has always been a spoiled brat with psychotic tendencies. That was evident from the beginning.

    I blame Jon Snow for not giving her some dick when she was practically begging for it prior to the battle.

    Examples please. She hasn’t been any more or less violent than any other character. When she executed Varys and Jon gave her the side eye, I was thinking to myself “MFer please! You hanged a handful of dudes for mutiny and beheaded Janos Slynt for the same thing. Why is it worse when Dany does it? Because the writers want you believe it is? Sorry, but this is bullshit!
