Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 They Ruined Her and What Next?



Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 They Ruined Her

Well, just one episode left for the end of final season of Game of Thrones, no doubt the episode 5th was extremely disappointing for viewers. The writers almost ruined each and every character that ever loved.

The journey started from season 1 with a hope and a vision to become the queen of seven kingdoms, making the world free from the curse of slavery, it’s all started from Daenerys Targaryen. However, it ending on the same character but how?

By ruining them and making them worse and worse. No doubt it’s only because of bad writing, they actually didn’t know what they are doing.

But let’s talk about all things one by one:

**Major Spoilers**

Daenerys Targaryen

I know everybody is curious about her, if you haven’t watch the show yet, probably, you will end up hating her. Because they ruined her character in such a way that seasonal fan’s are not able to absorb this, even several started discussions like; #DaenerysDie, etc

In short words, she burnt everybody who came across in her way. Even after Tyrion indication of ringing the bell to stop the battle.

It doesn’t make any sense that after ringing the bell, she continues burning the city. Well, it can be seen that she was frustrated, depressed, and when she saw the building where Cersei lives, it reminds her, how her family was murdered and how they lost their throne.

Basically, she took that so much personally and in the end, ASHES AND ASHES!

Now, let’s jump into the beginning. Lord Varys, I mean he was a good guy and I personally feel he was one of the intelligent character in the show. But he turns too quickly, way too quickly guys against her.

And Dany’s decision to burning him alive was the appropriate but writers can do better than that because characters who are together supporting each other from last 7 seasons, they turn against Dany like like… I don’t remember the word.

Jon Snow was nothing in this episode, it was like they included him only for the references’ purposes, like they have Jon Snow in Game of Thrones show. And completely agreed the episode was not for him, it was only for Queen Daenerys.

Despite of her words in season 6, I’m not like my father “Mad King”, she actually become the Mad Queen.

And the fact of Mad Queen is still annoy me and I guess most you guys!

First in the episode, Dany was too depressed because everyone betrayed her. Jon Snow told her sisters about his real identity, Varys planning to take down her, etc

Finally they ruined her character. Daenerys Targaryen hit her final form as she abandoned the advice to not use weapons of mass destruction—which is what a dragon pretty much is—on the innocents of (the surprisingly large) King’s Landing. Despite an obvious win over the Lannisters, Dany hears the bells of surrender, and rather than offer mercy, she goes off her rocker and torches everything in sight, children included. It’s been hinted that Dany was becoming too obsessive over the throne and had some of the characteristics of her father, the Mad King, but this heel turn came with whiplash.

Consider a time when rooting for Daenerys was the easiest thing about this show. She was the kind but steel-hearted “Breaker of Chains” who could broker peace with barbarians and slaves alike. We called her “Dany” and watched her talent for barbecuing slavers and enemies become a thing of satisfaction. From the first episode on, the series made us witness her trials—birthing dragons, freeing cities, saving dumbass Jon Snow, and helping to defeat the Night King. But now we’re meant to believe that the most reasonably lovable protagonist is now the show’s most unreasonable villain?

For a good seven seasons and change, this series has hammered in the idea of Dany’s aptitude for fairness; a queen interested in equality, with the one requirement being loyalty—bend the knee, and we won’t have problems, she’d say. The paradox of that comes in the constant reminder that Targaryen blood is susceptible to mental fuckery, as Varys puts it: “Every time a Targaryen is born, the gods flip a coin.” You’d expect the groundwork to be laid for this transition by now—the show has made a small attempt to show her as increasingly isolated—but we’re asked to ignore nearly everything we know about this character. Suddenly, because our queen is lonely and has been betrayed yet again, she’s down with torching thousands of people who are captives in their own right. As if the sounds of cries wouldn’t make her pause? Come on.

It’s possible that this character arc could have worked if the seeds to this decision were planted earlier and cultivated. Maybe if he finishes the books, George R. R. Martin will be able to show her descent into madness in a way that shows the tragedy of it all and what happens to a person consumed by their lust for power. But this show did Daenerys dirty.

At last just few words, I’m not a writer but anyone who have even 0.1% interest in movies and novels, can write a better so-called ending than this.

But still the final episode will be interesting, how Dany will confront everyone? Especially Jon and Tyrion. There are two possible things can happen in the next episode:

Someone from Jon, Tyrion, Bran, and Arya will kill her and take the Iron Throne. And most probably handed over to Tyrion. The reason why named Tyrion for Iron Throne for specific reasons:

Firstly, Jon Snow don’t have any interest to become a king and not after the king of dead’s landing, where million of innocent people died.

Arya Stark in episode 5

Second, Arya I can’t say anything but it seems like she will not (I know now, her fans will jump on me, etc but this is just an assumption.. Guys)


Tyrion (Image: HBO)

Lastly, Tyrion I believe now he is the only and right candidate for Iron Throne and probably everyone else want to see him. Also, we can’t ignore the tweet from Stephen King about the ending of Game of Thrones,

And Bran Stark, because he is dark-horse, even still his appearance Did not last long but who knows what they have wrote.

So, this is it for this post. I saved my words for recap of this episode and it will be soon live, so stay tuned and meanwhile follow us at @TheYdraft for all interesting stories!

Reason Why Game of Thrones Season 8 has Failed According to Reddit



Reason Why Game of Thrones Season 8 has Failed According to Reddit

Reason Why Game of Thrones Season 8 has Failed According to Reddit: The TV series was founded on George RR Martin’s hugely successful A Song of Fire and Ice literary saga – and also its first few seasons were adaptations.

But as the series progressed, it started to overtake Martin’s job – and really, even now, the writer nevertheless has just two books left to write.

After the series began treading its path concerning storylines and character growth, that is when some enthusiasts have contended that it started to lose its way – and today Reddit consumer StillFlyingHalfAShip has submitted a well-received suggestion regarding how and why.

They explained: “It’s been pointed out by Youtuber ‘The Dragon Demands’ that D&D [showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss] seem to be fixated on close ups of the main actors emoting without dialogue.

“As the series progressed from GRRM’s material to their own this became more and more prevalent, with the absolute extreme scenario occurring in the final episode (which they directed). We see Tyrion looking at things, crying, shocked and saddened, all with barely any talking whatsoever.

“In ‘The Bells’ there was meant to be a 7-minute long take just following Arya and her reactions as the city is destroyed. The scenes will be full of Cersei smirks, Jon Snow brooding, Arya stares, Tyrion worried faces – so much time dedicated to moments with barely any dialogue at all.

“Why do you think everyone was raving about the acting this season? Don’t get me wrong, they’re all incredibly talented, but so much of the focus is on non-verbal emoting that all we have to talk about is the performances.”

They added: “So we come to the strange irony of the last few seasons… they would actually work better as a book than as a show.

“We can’t always figure out what’s going on in the character’s heads from performance alone. Sometimes we need dialogue and actions to help us out.

“If the internal monologue was written on a page it would be simple, but often it was impossible to tell what was going on.

“I point to season 7 episode 7 as an example. Jaime has just informed Cersei that he wishes to desert and ride to Winterfell. She looks at The Mountain as some sort of threat that she’ll unleash him against her brother(?).

“Jaime looks back at her horrified. Then she gives a kind of evil stare, he walks towards the mountain (I legit thought he was gonna die at this point) and then just walks past him and out the courtyard, with no consequence.

“If Cersei had said something I would better understand just what the hell Cersei & Ser Gregor were playing at.

“Despite not being adapted from book material, the later seasons are full of non-dialogue scenes where only a written internal monologue would let us know what the characters were thinking.”

Game of Thrones: We Can’t Discount Drogon Eating Daenerys Says Forensic Anthropologist



Game of Thrones: We Can’t Discount Drogon Eating Daenerys Says Forensic Anthropologist

Game of Thrones: We Can’t Discount Drogon Eating Daenerys Says Forensic Anthropologist: While audiences are expecting Drogon was shooting Daenerys straight back to her ancestral home, a forensic specialist considers the dragon might have simply consumed her.

While it looks like everything was examined and rehashed concerning the Season 8 finale of HBO’s epic fantasy series, Game of Thrones, a forensic specialist has now entered the ring concerning the destiny of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).

SPOILER ALERT: This Report discusses the Last season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Please proceed with caution when you haven’t yet seen each the episodes in Season 8 and also want to prevent spoilers.

In the last installment of Game of Thrones, Daenerys maintained the iron throne but was murdered by her nephew and buff, Jon Snow (Kit Harington). He melted the iron cop with his passion prior to picking her up in his claws and flying off with her dead body.

It was shown near the end of the last incident that Daenerys had led east towards Volantis and Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) said he’d attempt to find the dragon.

Since that time, fans have speculated about why Drogon has been led in that way.

As mentioned previously by us, among those theories sees Drogon carrying Daenerys into Volantis to be able to possess her vaccinated with a reddish priestess. But, based on a meeting a forensic anthropologist did together with all the Huffington Post, there can be a more mundane ending for Daenerys’ body: Drogon could have eaten her.

“Might he eat her? Possibly, yes,” Dr. Carolyn Rando, a forensic anthropologist at the UCL Institute of Archaeology said.

“I don’t think we can discount that he was going off to eat her.”

But, how did Rando come to this conclusion?

There’s proof in the actual world that under certain conditions, creatures might be direct to eating their own owners. But a number of these situations arise from a pet being not able to depart a place after their owner dies and there are not any other food except to their proprietor.

Another motive sees creatures occasionally unintentionally getting mixed up into eating following licking or nudging their deceased owner as they attempt to work out exactly what’s happening — something which has been evidenced by Drogon at the last episode of Game of Thrones if he nudged Daenerys later Jon stabbed.

“So [the animal] tends to lick, and there’s a lot of blood and then eating might happen, but more out of just stress or something like that.”

Moreover, Rando also indicates that malnutrition may factor into this concept. In Season 8 Game of Thrones, Daenerys had said her dragons weren’t eating well. This was set down to the simple fact that dragons don’t deal well in the colder weather of the North. Therefore, after shooting Daenerys away, as Drogon attained a warmer place, it might have triggered an insatiable desire to eat .

But although it’s likely that Drogon ate Daenerys, Rando isn’t convinced that really occurred. Rather, she would rather believe that Drogon did not consume the Mother of Dragons and, rather, only flew off into the sunset together with Daenerys and had been only grieving the loss of his own mother.

Season 8 was the final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. HBO is currently in production on a prequel series set in the same universe as Game of Thrones. However, no release date has yet been announced for this new series.

Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams wants to Write a Story on the Friendship

Everybody knows that Game of Thrones stars Sophie Turner (played Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (played Arya Stark) has a strong bond from the beginning.

In a new video from Vogue Paris, in which Turner eats dinner with her Dark Phoenix costar Jessica Chastain, the 23-year-old actress shared her future career ambitions, saying that one day she’d like to produce and direct.

“As an actor, you can only have so much creative control,” Turner told Chastain. “I want to be able to have full creative control and create my own vision and that’s something I’m quite passionate about.”

Sophie mentioned that she would like to work again with her Game of Thrones costar and BFF Maisie Williams in future. Both played as a sisters Sansa and Arya Stark respectively, throughout the all eight seasons of HBO’s Game of Thrones.

“My best friend Maisie, she and I have a very intense friendship, a friendship that I haven’t had with any of my other girlfriends before,” Turner shared. “We felt like we wanted to write a movie about a friendship where it’s kind of like you’re soulmates, but you’re friends and it’s like this beautiful connection but it can also be quite destructive.”

Though Turner said the duo hasn’t started writing the movie just yet, she revealed she’s begun preparing for the moment they do.

“I bought a screenplay writing book!” Turner told Chastain. “To teach myself. Because I can’t write well, but I want to. But I’m just not talented enough.”

“You are talented enough!” Chastain replied supportively.

Turner and Williams’ friendship has been well-documented over the years, as the two grew up together on the set of Game of Thrones. The pair even has matching tattoos commemorating the date they were both cast on the show.

In April, Turner — who recently tied the knot with Joe Jonas in a Vegas wedding — shared that Williams will be her maid of honor at the couple’s larger ceremony this summer. “I don’t know why she’s thinking about [what she’s wearing to my wedding]. I’m giving her the bridesmaid dress!” Turner said to Entertainment Tonight after she found out Williams had told the outlet she was trying to pick out a dress.

“She’s my maid of honor! One of two,” Turner added.

“Maisie is definitely my protector and I’m hers, too,” Turner previously told Glamour UK. “I know if anything happened — especially if it was on Game of Thrones, which it never, ever would — she’d go crazy and protect me… Maisie is my strong home.”

In the same interview, Williams shared a similar sentiment about her costar.

“Sophie knows too much about me to not be my friend,” she shared. “I can’t tell you the amount of times Sophie said, ‘Go to therapy’ before I actually did. She really helped me through some messy break-ups and some friend break-ups. Whenever I’m like, ‘I need help! This is bigger than anything I can sort out on my own,’ Sophie is my point of call.”
