I've been saying she was going to be a mad Targaryen since series four or five, but I didn't expect it to happen in the span of fifteen minutes. This series has been a half-arsed hack job, anyone not seeing that is willfully ignoring what's right in front of them. Even the underwhelming series seven looks like a masterpiece compared to what's happening now, it's just become this character kills that character over and over, with said characters acting as if hours of on-screen personal development hadn't occured, all in order to wrap the show up so D&D can leave and earn that fat Disney cash (in my opinion). No intrigue, no mystery, nothing, just labourious plots done as quickly as possible, with so much of what came before discounted I'm actually staggered by it. From the silly, "I've never known bells to mean surrender", Davos Seaworth, series 2, episode 9, to the confusing, regarding Jaime's direct contradiction of his previously stated reasons for killing Aerys II, the Mad King, and thereafter being known as the most dishonourable man in Westeros for the rest of his life. I guess he just did it because he thought it would be funny.
Honestly this might be the worst ending I've seen, ever, and it's not even over yet. People flipped their lid about how dumb the ending of Mass Effect 3 was, and they weren't wrong, but it didn't do an about turn on loads of its major characters for no reason. But what's the point in rewatching old GoT episodes now, if none of those scenes with Sandor build up to anything meaningful, or all the mystic happenings beyond The Wall end in the blink of an eye with no real pay-off? At least Bioware were being leaned on by EA to get ME3 out the door ASAP, whereas HBO were offering as much time as Benioff and Weiss wanted to finish up the show, but they decided to spend two years on dodgy scripts and all but meaningless battle sequences.
