I don’t think I could cope with this. Contains spoilers!
Daenerys’s speech at the end of Season 6, Episode 6 of Game of Thrones was completely epic.
In addition to teasing that she will finally head to Westeros – something fans have been waiting for for six seasons – it was also a nice callback to the speech Drogo made back in Season 1. Plus, what with the giant dragon she was riding and all, it was pretty badass.
But there was also something about it that was a little…unsettling.
It's not the first time Dany has delivered a rousing speech, but hearing her echo Drogo's words – even without the rapey bits – when you bear in mind that her « enemies » are not just the dickbags we hate like the Boltons or Freys, but also those we know and love, like the Starks, makes you wonder if her heading to Westeros would be such a good thing after all.
Sure, a lot of people hope she meets Jon Snow and they’re like *heart eyes emoji* and team up to beat the White Walkers together and get married and rule Westeros and live happily ever after.
But, um… doesn't that sound very un-Game of Thrones to you?
Doesn’t it seem much more likely, in a series that makes you root for a guy who pushed a child out of a window, that the seemingly good protagonist actually ends up a villain?
