After losing 2 of her kids, losing Jorah and Missandei, also losing Jon as a lover. And recognizing that there are many many people who are questioning her as a queen she slowly became insane. There was no Jorah anymore who could tell her the truth. Tyrion tried often enough but she wouldn‘t listen. After 8 years we, the fans, must know that the throne is a curse and takes everyone down who claims it. This A nurse cannot survive only wine alone she also need a dog shirt is the sad truth of westeros. The sad truth of Game of Thrones Chris Blake Except that she didn’t “slowly” go insane.
She was perfectly sane until she snapped on the spot after a clean, decisive victory and annihilated 1,000,000 innocent civilians. Seven years of character development have established her as an empathic and benevolent leader. The breaker of chains, not her father’s daughter, and in one fell swoop, it was all gone. And yes, I realize the show sloppily tried laying the groundwork for this in approximately two episodes this season, but it was not effective, convincing, or enough.
If a character’s decision has to be mansplained. Then you haven’t been paying attention to basic storytelling. 101 – AND basic misogynist tropes 201 – AKA: women who have ambition and work their asses off to reach a goal are “mad” and can’t be trusted with power. She lost her dragons, her trusted advisor, half her army and her best friend. And her advisors are like “she’s mad” and Jon. The idiot who can’t help but fall into Ramsey Bolton’s trap and gets thousands killed. And whose bright idea to capture a White is the reason Dany’s dragon died. Giving the Night King the means to knock down the Wall. This deserves the throne because he “doesn’t want it,” and “cocks matter.”
SO WHAT Dany said “I will take what is mine with fire and blood.” She also locked up her dragons when they killed a child. She also sacrificed her dragons and half her army to help save humanity. Dany was never a tyrant. And we’re supposed to believe that she suddenly wants to burn innocent civilians. I am not buying A nurse cannot survive only wine alone she also need a dog shirt because I really love it. Tyrion literally burned thousands with wildfire and was never accused of being “mad.” The men on the show send assassins to murder infants in their cribs and they’re never accused of being “mad.”
