Who in this thread is going to have their mind changed that burning KL did or did not make sense? Why keep arguing it?

I don't find this comparison accurate at all. For the Allies to invade Japan, it was going to cost an estimated 6-14 million Allied and Japanese lives.
To drop the atomic bombs, it was going to cost 220,000 civilian lives.
That's the math Truman used to justify his decision.

The atomic bombs were used to force Japan's ruling class to surrender while saving American and allied troop lives.
Dany burned King's landing after they had essentially surrendered and actually cost more of her soldiers to die. She did it to quench her hate and blood lust.

The author of that article failed miserably with their comparison.
Well, conquering westeros the hard way had already cost her basically all her western allies, her whole fleet, most of her dothraki, most of her unsullied, all of her friends, and 2 of her dragons, and she was facing untold armies of spies, assassins, undefeated armies, undeterred lords, unafraid citizens, etc. she was going to have to face all that without the resources to do it.

The analogy is exact. Dead on. 100%. And frankly i bet the author would tell you that if you asked him.


I'm irrationally angry at the number of Dothraki and Unsullied.left. it's like that number keeps.growing.
I've chosen to accept that a large number of Dothraki and Unsullied were left behind when they went to Winterfell

Rewatching episode 5:

It suddenly occurs to me that maybe Dany burned the city because she didn't trust Tyrion. Varys betrayed her and Tyrion has failed her before. His brother is caught trying to get back to Cersei. She has a reason to not trust the surrender plan.

Also, Tyrion the very immoral character at the beginning of the show by this episode is doing everything in his power to save as many people as possible. Dany who has always had her heart in the right place does all the wrong things.

Ready for the Howland Reed comeback!
CNN is an enemy of the state and should be treated as such.

Sure.

They were facing the greatest enemy the world had ever known, I'm sure they were left behind.

It's all ending. Hard to believe.

Glad I haven't been spoiled and avoided all leaks.

Uhhh.... Dany's heart is not in the right place. She was.begging Jon not to tell people his heritage because it threatens her claim. All she wants is to be queen.

Hey, I never said it made sense but it makes a lot more sense than accepting the idea that there are left over Dothraki after we saw them get extinguished

Last week was the ultimate headfake I think now. HBO will want to redeem her and make their new core audience happy. And it appears half of this crowd.

Am i right?

You wanted Jon to kill the Night King? Noooooope.

You wanted Arya to kill Cersei? Haha, maybe next year partner. Construction got to her first.

Everyone presumes that Jon will now kill Dany for going scorched Earth on KL? Naaaaaah bro, too easy. Dany will trip on the steps of the iron throne and split her head open. Expectation subverted.

Only way to do really do that would be to bring over all of the brown skinned people from Essos and give them Westeros so that they would free from the masters forever.

*** Not trying to be political, just being factual.

May dany just explains that she knew the bells were a Cersei trick and every goes; "ok...makes sense".

Dany fan club is happy again.

She does want to be queen and that's a selfish urge.

But she gave it up and asked Jon to love her and rule together.

He refused.

Jon like Ned can't play the game. He can't survive as a king in Kings Lansing. He lacks both the heart and the mind for it.

If as I think, Varys already poisoned her, she killed kl so Jon could take drogon and rule with the dragon fear she created. Rule from another place. Rule with both fear and love. And beat the game for a while. Break the wheel. Make the world a better place.

If Varys didn't poison her, then she can't rule from kL. It gets more complicated. Will she try again for love? Or stick with fear?

Love will be her downfall. The game kills everyone that tries for love. Just ask Ned and rob.

Bran will wait until the last second to do something significant. He'll warg into Drogon and eat Dany alive Jurassic Park style.

In her head/heart, her motivations for wanting the throne are for good reasons. She wants a more just world, but she's going about it all the wrong ways. That was what I meant. Sorry for the confusion.

Watching the finale with my mother (visiting her over the weekend), i'm afraid there are going to be at least 10 pause and ask question moments.

This is when you tell her the train leaves the station at 8. She can be on it or not
