    Is Dany the new villain of Game of Thrones? Why did the series change the character like this -- or was Dany always the secret villain of the series? Erik Voss explains Dany's controversial decision and breaks down the steps that led her to this breaking point. Are critics right to feel betrayed by Dany's turn? Will George R R Martin take Dany in a different direction in the books? Is Dany actually a "tragic hero," and if so, how is her arc different from other famous tragic heroes?

    What about the 2000 horses 🐎 the golden company brought with them from Esos?? I’ll fact check that figure later, but seriously. There were barely any horses in episode 5 🤔

    All i wanted was a good story well told. What i got was not perfect, but it was a very good story very well told. Thank you GoT and Erik Voss.

    I enjoyed the Bane reference in this video more than I enjoyed the whole 8th season of GoT.

    For me if was the pace of the story not the story itself that was the problem.Perhaps if the battle of Winterfell had been at the end of season 7 they would have had more time to deal with Danys descent to madness and more time for Cersei ,who was drastically underused this season.

    Thank you for making this video, so now I know that I won't be stay tuned to your channel anymore. Thank you for making your stand in this entertainment industry. There are people like you and your team that why this event with GOT happened in the first place. So yes you can continue to think and this and there will be a people like me who won't withstand this attitude and have upper hands. It's happened all the time and more and more in Hollywood nowadays. It's going to take time, yes but look how far we have come now compare to before. If there a will there is a way. All the respectable criticism from websites to newspapers and the cast of GOT themselves know what the intention and the ideas of people who turn the storylines into the abyss. Kit Harrington said "Disappointed" It's has been call the worth ending of the TV series in history for a reason. Now D&D will take care of star wars? Well, good luck with that. Then again start wars fan already being noisy about too many women figures in the star wars worlds AGAIN speak the volume of you know what?!

    Humans are truly the worst. We are setting our own planet on fire, in addition to a history of violence genocide and cruelty. Every leader has killed. Your tax dollars pay others to kill people for you. You are not as innocent as you want to believe. You are all naive idealistic and lack a basic sense of reality.

    i definitely think they made this season way too fast and too few episodes to really grasp the idea that danny made that transition to a tyrant. we needed few episodes to adjust that shes too evil and find a more suitable king or queen but HBO said noooo we need to end this fast. Hey i enjoyed the 1-7 seasons is just that s8 not my fave season.(separation anxiety lol)

    Nice video but I'm still not buying it. If Daenerys would've just taken Kings Landing in the beginning none of the following trash would've happened...

    sorry but they could have left us wanting more...It wasnt was poor writing ...not Martin but HBO totally screwed the pooch on this....Who in the hell was in charge of this mess....An Epic like this deserved more...All of my friends are disappointed....we could have done it better

    I think we all get how Dany became the "Mad Queen", but it's simply so out of character. I don't buy it at all. Again, foreshadowing isn't everything. This episode was pure garbage.

    Disappointed.. The whole season has been poor. Finding phrases to justify the writers choice is frankly encouraging bad and lazy writing. D&D should never get a chance to write anything again. Subverting expectation should not be a reason to manipulate a story arch. Let's shame bad and lazy materials and praise good ones.. ✌🏿
