    I would think twitter would be more perilous than this thread.

    And depending how annoying your friends are, facebook.

    Series get ruined or decline in quality all the time. Petitioning to redo the season is basically just trolling.

    Also a season to a season and a half late.

    Not to mention that its easy for us to sit in the cheap seats and snipe about competent writers, but we don't have to deal with how to resolve all the various character threats, and the big shocking moments that have defined the series, have epic closing battles, and do it all within a budget for a show on a subscription service.

    I figure Drogon just gets pissed, dumps Dany, razes everything and takes over.

    "DROGON KING NOW. IRON THRONE IS GOOD BACKSCRATCHER. BRING SHEEP."


    Does Drogon marry Ghost to unite the houses?

    Or is that too much CGI?

    It won't take her long to fly to Winterfell and raze it to the ground...


    Until Bran wargs Drogon and decides to fly upside down.

    I would say that the author is wrong in his assertion that she is rational, for reasons that Cause stated, and because the author had to tell you to ignore interpretation from the people who wrote the episode as well.

    But that doesn't make the argument apologist or scary. Arguing mad or not when all are agreed the act is fundamentally immoral is really just a sideshow.


    But the author falls down because while the motive for such an act can be seen as rational (dominating through fear others that you have concluded will in no other way follow you), rationality also requires that someone weigh the outcome against the goal ("is it worth it?" and this clearly violates Dany's heretofore morality) , and also weigh the adverse consequences (in this case that while now it is unlikely she will be openly opposed or rejected or rebelled against, it also guarantees attempts to kill her, as she has made it both a moral and perhaps existential imperative).
