    Robb Stark aka Richard Madden was the dude in Bodyguard, sweating with Keeley Hawes.
    Touted as a future Bond.

    No doubt doubt a few on the forum will be over the moon at me giving this thread a bump, but I really have nowhere else to turn. I was excited by @TCIB 's thread on Women of GOT when I first looked but was crestfallen to discover 90% of the visuals are now reduced to a 'Tinypic no longer available' message.
    I do appreciate there's nothing worse in a thread than a JCL, who rocks up and posts, 'so what have I missed then?' However, having just spend most of the last 2 months watching all 73 fucking episodes or whatever it was, I have genuine withdrawal symptoms, and I am really searching for answers, and I think it will take me another 73 hours to read all 109 pages in this thread if the answers are there. I have read the first few, and the most regular posters, who I'm guessing are GoT experts, seem to be: @7evens (new name now?) @inchy14 @Exeter Blue I am here @MarsLlama @asaluttar (gone too?) and @jimharri (but not in a good way).
    So guys, daft questions from a newbie but.. last episode:
    1. Why did Dany not just take her dragon straight to the Royal quarters and fry Cersei, why did she have to destroy a whole city of innocents before she got there? Yeah, ok, some advisors had died and she was upset (Jorah and Missandei), but why didn't she listen to Tyrion, Snow etc, and why did she go off on a bender? Just seemed the most illogical thing in the whole programme.
    2. So the dragon doesn't just burn King's Landing but demolishes/destroys every building? Er, ok. Was the dragon breathing fire or missiles?
    Answers welcome.

    Take a wild guess.......
    After 7 seasons it was the greatest television series of all time IMO. After 8, it was an anti-climatic disaster, to the point that over a year on I haven’t watched a single episode again, not even Battle of the Bastards or Hardhome, two of the greatest hours of TV watching you could otherwise wish to see. And if the final season was well below standard, then the final episode was a fucking train wreck. Bran suddenly back on planet Earth (or Westeros) and declared leader of a fledgling democracy, Arya just shuffles off, Jon Snow gets “banished” to a land that doesn’t even exist anymore cos the wall’s gone, Cersei dies in a fucking roof fall, and Danaerys turns into a lunatic inside 2 episodes. The final season should have had 10 episodes like the rest and continued with the detailed storylines of the previous 7 seasons, but instead the producers tried to cram everything into 6 and tied up the final episode in about 2 seconds flat. Anyway, don’t talk to me about it. I’m still pissed off!

    Thanks for your reply pal.
    1 i can kind of see but I think it’s a lame reasoning for her transformation, but I’m guessing it is the reason the writers would use to justify what happened tbf.
    2 not sure what you are on about really

    Lame for sure - it was totally shite (although the theory is a good one - ie she was the mad king Aerys of her generation from a tainted family born of incest).

    Wildfire was a substance developed by the maesters - a bit like napalm - and used by Tyrion Lannister and Cersei Lannister previously for example. There was a lot of it stored in the underground tunnels and dungeons around the city. Add the dragons and kaboom.

    I think it was a good part of the story.

    The whole show it’s about how good she is as a leader and how she’s not bad like her father, who lost the plot and burned thousands to death.

    Then when everyone is loving her she loses her mind like her father and does the same thing.

    I quite enjoyed it.
