I Hate Daenerys

Hi,

First, just want to say thanks for the podcast. I work two jobs, one is night shift and I listen while I work. It makes the night more enjoyable. My brother is part of a gaming podcast so I know how time-consuming it can be, so Thank you for your time and effort! Also, I apologize in advance I am writing this quickly so no time to proofread, I hope I don’t ramble.

I’ve had my ups and downs with this season, and I really don’t know how all this is going to be wrapped up in 80 minutes.

-The scene with Dani and Jon from episode 4 where she is telling him not to tell his family still makes me angry. This is the moment it was solidified for me that Dani is a monster. She says the throne is rightfully hers but it’s not! I mean it sucks she did all she did to get where she is with the goal of being queen but sucks to suck. The truth about who Jon is his truth to tell and if he wants to tell his family and Dani really loved Jon she would understand that asking him not to tell them is just not an option. Jon never swore he wouldn’t tell Sansa and Arya and it should have never been implied by her that he wouldn’t. If she cared about what was right and just then the conversation shouldn’t be “Don’t tell anyone” it should have been “how do we tell the world and where do we go from here”. Dani showed in this that she is a party of one. She doesn’t care about Jon, or what’s right. All she cares about is being Queen and it doesn’t matter how many people have to die to make that happen, episode 5 proved that.

-I have heard it said more than once that Dani fought Jon’s war for him. Eh, no…the war with the White Walkers and the Night King was humanities war. It’s not like Dani did him a favor. If they didn’t fight the Night King together they would all eventually be dead. So, that shouldn’t be seen as a favor to Jon, and a reason for him to owe her anything.

-I was not shocked that Dani burned Kings Landing even after she heard the bells. She looked bat shit crazy when Tyrion went to tell her about Varys betrayal, and she has been working up to this for a while.

-When I think of where things will go from here. I think Varys got the word out before he was killed and hopefully, that will be enough to overthrown Dani especially after her BBQ of Kings Landing. I don’t know that Jon is going to be able to suddenly man up, grow a pair, and take the throne. I think he will die. I think this is either going to have to come down to the other Stark kids stepping up in some way. But then there is also Tyrion still alive…for now. Like I said I just don’t know how all this gets wrapped up in one more episode.

-Anyone else thinks there will be a baby Briamie? I do hope not because that would be way too CBS for me but it has crossed my mind. Like they will flash forward 5 years and show Brieene and a blond haired little kid. She will be teaching the kid how to sword fight or some shit.

Thanks Again!!

    Congrats on making the Small Council, Kandy. I think you’re absolutely right about Dany asking Jon to keep his identity secret. A person who really loved him would say, “It doesn’t matter. We’re in love. We’ll rule together as king and queen.”
