Which I don’t understand. I’m not even going to go into the fact that book!tyrion would never help Cersei at this point of the story. Show!tyrion actually told her that he wants to make her suffer (in a more eloquent way). He knows that she was going to have him killed out of spite. Then she tried to kill him once more through Bronn just a few days (or weeks?) before this episode. And yet he suddenly cares about her baby and the continuation of her line? Why?
I wish we could expand on this more honestly. The north absolutely hates the Lannister and KL; they’ve lost the most because of them. We didn’t see anyone else second guessing Dany because they weren’t. For once they had the Queen on their side and they were able to get revenge on those who had power over them for centuries and destroyed them. Which is why I think that the most realistic ending would be all the kingdoms breaking up, or at the very least get a northern and southern kingdom.
Exactly. And even though her family was in westeros for centuries and that she was born there and only had to flee when the lannisters and baratheons slaughtered her whole family, she is a “foreign queen”? And she’s not allowed to get revenge for what happened to her family and the life she lost because of them, because the past is in the past. And yet, people still bring her father into the discussion.
I do think that the SL in the books would be more about her thinking this is fake and Cersei would attack her the moment she let her guard down, specifically because Tyrion urged her to call off the attack and she didn’t trust him anymore. I thought that’s what they were going for on the show as well...
Can you write the last book? This is amazing and explains everything. I don’t like that Rhaegar was fabulous, Viserys was a weirdo but definitely not mad, Jon is broody but amazing otherwise and Dany is the one who ended up mad out of all the targs. Really? And if we get this justification we will at least understand her point of view. I do think that it’s strange no one bat an eye when Robert killed Rhaegar who was so popular just because his father was mad. They were fine with him wiping out the targs. They were fine with Lannisters making the realm suffer. They were fine with Cersei blowing up the Sept using a fire that can’t be put out (compared to dragon fire) and then sitting her ass on the throne while she had absolutely no claim to it. And yet they draw a hard line on the foreign queen? Who wouldn’t have been a foreignerer in the first place had they not destroyed her family? I’m so with her on this and I’m still horrified by her actions.
I definitely agree with you. I hate that he is supposed to be the best, when he is a kinslayer (yes we cheered him on but that’s another story), who pledged his loyalty to Dany and then betrayed her and became a traitor. He gave her bad advice time and time again and mostly to help his family and get revenge when it mattered to him (e.g taking casterly rock which was pointless). And yet he is still supposed to be the best and gets to judge Dany who was right all along. At least they should acknowledge this on the show.
