Ask yourself why you want a Queen who can’t make a plan on her own unless the plan is to burn them all then lashes out at her advisors because she’s loosing her war.
Ask yourself why you would want a ruler that has to be talked down from her darker most destructive impulses by everyone around her at every turn. What kinda Queen needs her advisors to keep her on a leash to avoid mass death and chaos every time she gets mad.
Like it really it don’t make sense. How am I supposed to root for Dany? Serious question. We are 7 seasons in and Jon, a perfect stranger has to tell her that burning down cities and castles isn’t a good idea? And I’m supposed to pat her on the back because she sorta listened and only burned a field of men alive along with all the food at the reach. I have to watch her have a temper tantrum because Tyrion, the brains behind her whole operation, made a miscalculation in his plans and they suffered a loss that she felt wouldn’t have happened If she had listened to her gut and stormed KL with dragons and a foreign army.
Let’s also talk about how despite Tyrion’s devotion her first instinct when he failed was a paranoid belief that he’s working with his family? Or how about how we’re supposed to believe that she’s a benevolent queen who wants to save people but she uses the WW threat once again to selfishly try to secure power and refuses to help the North unless Jon swears fealty to her.
How am I supposed to root for a queen who tells a King that he can disregard the will of his people because as King they will go along with whatever he says….
Honestly if this isn’t the start of a mad Dany arc then I’m not sure I get what’s going on here because nothing Dany has done since coming to Westeros feels heroic.
If the realm needed a ruler who’s first instinct was “burn them all” , who got off on seeing people burned alive, who lashes out as advisors and threaten to have them killed, and slipped into paranoia easily then the realm could have kept Aerys.
