I’m not going to post any spoilers.
I’ve been watching Game of Thrones with my wife since the first season. She loves the show and watching television shows together is part and parcel of being married. Neither of us have ever liked Daenerys Targaryen and so it was highly satisfying to be vindicated after all this time.
Ever since she burned down Astapor and tortured the slaveowners in Meereen, I have nicknamed her Social Justice Warrior Daenerys Targaryen. This couldn’t have ended any other way. It has been obvious to me for years that her character has been motivated by her own ego and sense of entitlement, not any sense of humanity. She is no different than her brother Viserys who was killed off in the first season.
Contrast the development of Daenarys’s character with her white knight Jorah Mormont or other White males like Jamie Lannister or the Hound who became more noble, likable and sympathetic over time. Look at all the brown people who have died for her too from Kahl Drogo down to the present season. It is worth noting that her antagonist Cersei was the other cold-blooded bitch in the series.
Has Game of Thrones been low key woke on crazy, power hungry women this entire time? Everyone now agrees that Jon Snow must sit on the Iron Throne as the rightful heir and benevolent patriarch of Westeros. After this penultimate episode, it appears the show will have a happy ending.
Surrounded by the adulation of foreign brown people who fed her ego, Daenarys took it right in the feels when she felt like she might not win the prom after all
Note: My favorite character in the show is Bran because he likes to sit back and chill. As a historian, he has become wise since he already knows everything.
