    Daenerys is just like the antifa: emotional and destructive with a communist ideal.

    The last season for me was disappointing. The entire series was amazing so tight in the way the story was told and than the last season felt like a deck bbn of cards being thrown down. I was not a fan of the ending I don't believe it was told well at all. Although I love the way your explaining it. I just need nice neat Closer. I don't feel that it was

    Do not forget that Daenerys earned two new titles after her battle at King's Landing...."Breaker of the Wheel" and "Queen of the Ashes".

    DnD should be smacked for putting ego before the art. They wasted great actors, artists, and writers for rushed trash.

    Oh come on, guys. Like you've never pressed the "Exterminate" button before! Better to cull some people now, then face decades of rebelions later! For a stable and secure Empire!

    The main problem of this season is it was rushed, but also that it was too much focused on endless actions scenes while there was (almost) no scene with deep or emotional dialogues between the characters, and so, almost no scene showing character's evolution. Instead, we got even big time jumps where it would definitely have been essential to see the characters interact
    For example, between missandei's death and the attack, I think three weeks have passed so we don't see daenerys' descent into paranoia/madness enough, or the actions of Varys to plot against her. In both cases, his death feels too easy given his intelligence, and her madness feels coming out of nowhere. Also, we don't see the time and the development between Jaime and Brienne's first night and his departure, so we don't see if there was any involvement between the two, if Jaime was feeling something or if he was just trying to forget Cersei. Etc.
    Also, I can't get over huge mistakes due to nothing but lazyness : Jaime making a mistake about how he killed his cousin when it was definitely not the moment to do one (it's supposed to have marked him a lot) and all what happens in the last episode about Tyrion reaching a donjon miraculously still standing when it was supposed to have collapsed and be unreachable, him finding the corpses under 10 bricks, the floor not even covered entirely... this discovery was unrealistic and unnecessary at that point
