First time comment. I can't believe you guys missed the obvious .... Danny wanted vengeance period. That was clear when she never actually agreed to the bell ring strategy. In fact contastly bring up the bell strategy was one of the biggest clues that it would fail. When the bells started ringing her victory felt hollow because she didn't feel that need for vengeance had been satisfied. Danny's actions where not inexplicable you guys just didn't get it because of your own preconceived notions about Danny.

it was a great episode. the whole season has been the steady decline of dany into a powerhungry unstable, ruler at any cost. she's devoted her life to it and with the anger that her family were cast out of westeros and the revenge she wants for that as a big motivator. all that anger, thirst for revenge and power hunger mixed with some Mad king 'burn them all' genes mixed in. makes total sense that she snapped. it's epic storytelling that after all her efforts to get there she ends up burning it all down. shame that some of the characters don't get the airtime they deserve though. Season needs another 4 episodes.

oh man I agree with the season being suuuuuppper rushed but this episode was awesome. the mad queen turn was rushed but to be fair has been hinted at for multiple seasons. Arya I loved this episode because yes she supposed to be a bad ass assassin but she's still a child. if the city wasn't getting blown up she would've stayed and killed Cersei. I liked cerseis search because it subverted expectations and let her go out with some sympathy. everyone assumed either Arya or Janine was going to kill her so I'm glad that wasn't how she went out. I loved the chaos in this episode. how quickly the battle turned because I'd assume stuff like that happened back in the day. again too rushed but plot wise I liked this episode.

Clint Dorman I totally agree with you on the cinematography. it was gorgeous. the shots of Arya and the horse at the end were fantastic. they have definitely been alluding to Dany going crazy but I feel like she hadn't killed enough innocent/only slightly bad people to justify the turn fully. I know she lost everyone close to her but they should've established a bit more her blood lust before the turn

Ryan Pena I couldn't disagree more. cinematically it was well paced and just gorgeous. The last 10 minutes in particular had some of the most amazing shots you've ever seen on TV. in terms of Dany, the writing's been on the wall for a full season and a half. she's threatening to off Tyrion at least three times now, tolerated her dragons killing innocent people and animals, had competition from Jon Snow and Sansa, lost her lover on the eve of battle, lost her best friend brutally and watched one of her dragons, basically her child, be killed. on top of all of this, we can see her feeling isolated and incredibly paranoid in the prior episode (celebration party). finally, crazy just runs in the family and it finally manifested and all of these things came together to push her over the edge.
