What The Fuck??

Yes, there are going to be massive spoilers, so turn away right now if you have not watched the latest episode of Game of Thrones.

Where it begin... oh yes, Daenerys Targaryen, just what have you done David Benioff, and D.B. Weiss? It's like these guys completely forgot how to tell stories or what character development is and why they spent 8 years developing a character, only to just do the opposite of what's at the core of that character to do. This comes down to lazy writing and maybe even no writing to begin with, and where the hell is George RR Martin, and do these creators not have any way of communicating with him? Was there no one on the team when the idea was proposed that said, "hey guys, probably not the best way to go with this one?"

Daenerys' transformation from the strong and moral young woman, who fights for the down trodden we have all come to known over the last eight years, to a psychotic crazy person that brings down hell fire on the innocence in a split second. What the actual fuck, are you people high or something, what sane person thought this would be a good idea? Did the folks at HBO hire Rian (I killed Star Wars) Johnson to help with the writing and subvert expectations?

"In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms. As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all. Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea" - HBO

What does it takes for Daenerys to totally fucking snap like she did, the dragon dying or the "person of color" servant who was killed or Jon not that comfortable with a little incest? What made he become a complete different person and completely abandon all morality, and become a murderous tyrant? Is the takeaway here that a powerful character like Daenerys is undone by an unexplained emotional fit or power trip? This is nothing but disrespectful to this beloved character and to anyone who loved this character and the world.

What a pile of crap!!

I, sadly, have to agree. The show has been declining for several seasons but this one has been particularly bad, in my opinion. I think the issue arose because the writers had no idea what to do once they ran out of book material so they went off the rails into lazy, "tropey" T.V. writing.

"where the hell is George RR Martin, and do these creators not have any way of communicating with him?"

I kind of suspect (and sincerely hope) that he is feeding them bad information about where he wants the story to go because he is (rightly) afraid that his work will be destroyed by the poor execution of the later seasons of the show.

I think the storyline started deteriorating last season but I do agree that this 2nd to last episode was pushing it. Can't see how she's going to sit on the iron thrown now that she melted it, lol...
