THE CONSEQUENCES OF DAENERYS’ IGNORANCE (P5)
If I look back, I am lost. - Daenerys Targaryen
Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.- Margaret J. Wheatly
Warning No. 5: Think twice before using your dragons. Everything has side effects. And remember, don’t use them to melt castles and burn cities, many innocents will be in danger.
Dany’s response: Dany was tempted several times to just fly to the Red Keep and burn Cersei to crisp. Thanks to Tyrion and then Jon’s counsel, she has restrained herself. However, things might not go well once Dany learns that Cersei has cheated. Are Jon and her advisers able to keep her in check forever? Will she just act on her impulse again and fly South to punish Cersei and take the Throne with fire and blood?
- This is just speculation, but I think there’s a high chance Dany will abandon Jon and the North in the midst of the war against the Night King, which I have mentioned in Part 2. Of course, if she does so, she leaves the North (and the realm) open to NK’s attack and put the lives of millions people at stake. But this is not the only consequence.
Bran saw a ruined Throne Room covered in snow in his visions and Dany saw the same while she was in the House of Undying. So the destruction of King’s Landing is almost guaranteed. We just don’t know yet when and how.
- Dany was informed by Tyrion that wildfire is everywhere under the ground of King’s Landing (thanks to her father’s “legacy”). However, it is not certain whether she really takes this piece of information seriously. Although part of it has been used by Tyrion to destroy Stannis’ fleet during the Battle of Blackwater and by Cersei to blow up the Sept, how much still hidden down under the capital is a mystery. If Dany really attacks KL, the moment she shouts her favorite “Dracarys” on the back of Drogo, she would trigger a big fire that leads to the doom of the city.
If this comes true, then Dany’s declaration is just pure joke.
Do you catch the skepticism on Tyrion’s face when Dany declared so?
If you’re still doubtful that Dany will be ever Queen of the Ashes, I offer you an example.
And this horrific image is just the beginning.
