I completely understand Dany is the Mad Queen. I’ve expected it since season two. But we didn’t even get to see her slowly slip in to madness. They literally made her crazy after one or two episodes and it doesn’t fit with the rest of the series. #GameOfThrones

Although some people pointed out that maybe it wasn’t actually that bad
-found out she’s not the rightful queen
-lost her most trusted advisor
-lost two children
-lost her BFF
-rejected by her lover

Game of Thrones bandwagon haters: “D&D ruined Dany’s character development in one”

But everyone can agree that the scene between Cersei, The Hound, The Mountain, and Qyburn was the best

Everyone was also into Arya’s scene with The Hound

As for Cersei’s death scene? quite as satisfying as many imagined
