“He knew exactly what he intended to leave behind when he was gone. Damage.”

Police confiscated vinegar used to neutralize pepper spray and claimed it was a chemical used against them, they faked an injury (that is obviously paint, and the officer would have been in riot gear, not a uniform)
Released personal info on the people arrested, arrested journalists and legal observers, and broke a restaurant window and blamed protesters…

She's Never Called Him A Bastard

I just wanted to observe that throughout Jon and Dany’s time together this season the topic of Jon being a bastard never came up. This is something Jon has had to deal with his whole life, with friends, with family, even with his former lover but not with Dany. She never called him that or referred to him as such when he wasn’t around.  

For Dany, even though her own family name is extremely important to her, the family name of other people or lack thereof is not. The man she loved the most before meeting Jon didn’t have a family name, nor does her close advisor and friend Missandei. She didn’t care about Tyrion being a Lannister and allowed him to prove himself. Nor her Unsullied or her Dothraki have family names and Dany doesn’t seem to mind at all.

For Jon, this must be a strange experience. People just bring up the fact that he’s a bastard all the time, he’s accustomed to it. But Dany hasn’t even acknowledged it and even though it hasn’t been addressed I think a part of Jon must feel appreciative that Dany respects him as a person and hasn’t defined him by the circumstances of his birth. This can be another component of his attraction to her, that she sees him for who he is not what society defines him as.
