Really like the Jesse James Jaime Lannister take, I personally think it's all there if you look closely enough. And Daenerys' turn is all her face. I believe once you've done 7 years of work all it takes is a look. We got it from Cersei in her shame walk now Daenerys seeing the red keep for the first time.
