Game of Thrones season 8 Daenerys Targaryen gets killed by Arya Stark?

Tuesday, 14 May, 2019

As many had feared and predicted, Daenerys Targaryen just became the Mad Queen.

Absolutely do not keep reading if you haven't watched Game of Thrones season eight, episode five.

Eagle-eyed viewers took to social media to do what they do best lately - pound out keyboard cries of outrage aimed at show-runners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff. She was happy to accept her crown as the queen of ashes anyway by then.

As for Daenerys, the narrative has now changed so much.

By the looks of it, Daenerys has the full support of the Dothraki and the Unsullied.

But did Robert Baratheon predict this back in season one? Varys was executed for treason, but of course he wasn't the one she was really mad at. However, it still wouldn't have saved her from the dragon or the fire-resistant Daenerys herself, so even if it could have evened the playing field on-foot, her self-serving nature might have taken over and made her realize there was no point to it (even it would be a little unlike Cersei not to give "em hell no matter what)".

Despite many dismissing the Targaryen offspring as too far away to impact Westeros - Robert was wary of the threat they posed.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, actress Lena Headey, 45, opened up about Cersei's demise, admitting her reaction to the character's final scene was "mixed" at first. We hole up in our castles. "They came into the world together and now they leave together".

We'll find out in one week.

In their final moments together, it's "maybe the first time that Cersei has been at peace," Headey noted.

During the destruction of the city, green explosions erupted from a handful of places all over Kings' Landing.

The mother-of-two confessed the on-screen siblings kept "cuddling" and saying "I love you" to each other as their time on the show came to an end. Though after her destruction of nearly the entire city, there's something else we need to consider... Having seen everything that Daenerys has done to Kings Landing and all the innocent people she's killed, I'm betting that Arya is going to go and assassinate the dragon queen. Now, the remaining players are left to determine who will sit on the Iron Throne.
