    Remember when Jon and Tyrion were approaching blackwater bay for that meeting with Darth Cersi? There's only ONE million people in Kings landing. Not "millions"

      I thought when she heard the bells she’s reminded of her father dying

        I have no problem with Daenerys going bad, but I would’ve loved if it was done in a more poignant way. Like instead of her just snapping from hearing the bells, she loses her resolve and, instead of attacking the city, goes after only the Red Keep and burns it to ashes. In doing so, she sets off the wildfire and it cascades through the city destroying all the people and a bunch of her own troops, making her realize her ruthlessness makes her just like her father... and then she goes batshit.

          You understood it wrongly.. You are missing the point of the whole idea . Tyrion releases his brother to save the city from tragedy ! He knew that things can go wrong very quickly and one misstep can bring many deaths ! But he did not knew that it will be much much much worse ! So better chance will be for all of them to make Cersei surrender . Wrong interpretation again. He did not send his borther to die in the city. Do you remember what the plan was ? They should ring the bells the moment all of the defences are gone, - many peoples saved and the war ends. But nobody could predict what happened there. Nobody predicted total mass destruction ! That how the things went not otherwise.

            Bet YouTube content creators for Game Of Thrones theories wish they could get those hours they waisted back.

              @HaxDogma if only the writers would have been half as creative as the theorists.

            deany was so out of character killing the people, I could have see her killing jon or other people that had power or where a problem for her, but this made no sense at all

              People who who say this wasn't forshadowed have clearly drunk so much of the danny coolaid that they're blind to obvious forshadowing.

                  I actually enjoyed Season 8, all the way until the ending... I liked the razing of Kings Landing, I thought it was truly excellent and a just way to deal with such scumbags and their cowardly people who did not push for surrender.... they can riot for food and turn the city into a rape fest... but can't surrender to a dragon queen? fuck 'em then. I loved seeing Daeny's rage and her sudden strokes of wrath against people who betrayed her or did things behind her back... Her character has the mindset of a dragon and that is showing more clearly as time progresses through the seasons. I just absolutely hated the ending... how fucking ridiculous... J & D could have worked well.

                          madness is subjective, she want mad just angry and played and betrayed by lots of people, which may have pushed Daenerys onto the dark side. I'm not hating this video I'm just calling out to the fans who call her "The mad queen".

                                    I think the main reason why she burned down Kinglanding was simply because of Jamie Lannister escape and he could help Cercey to run away after realizing she lost a war. So Cercey could hide between an innocence people. That's why she decided to destroy all of them. But who knows...

                                      Varys was touched a few times. Roz grabbed him in the nether regions when he visited the brother to recruit her. Littlefinger touched him on the shoulder in one of their whispered verbal duels in the throne room. I think Olenna might have used his arm while walking in the garden, but I'd have to go back and rewatch that scene to be sure.

                                        Sending his brother was another attemp at getting the bells to ring so the city would be spared. Nothing to do with unborn child

                                          If she just destroyed the whole city like that with one dragon, why didn't they just do that with the dead in the great war?

                                          Perfectly said. The middle ground for Dany should have been having the Lannister’s army killed even after they surrendered, destroying the castle, but sparing the town.

                                                      I honestly feel that the idiots “writers” of the show, (who thought they would do this series any semblance of justice, by overwriting the original author, and deciding the “end” of the series would be good the way that THEY wrote it), should be burned alive! They literally took TWO YEARS to write this rushed garbage, and didn’t even give us the satisfaction of watching Cersi be ripped to shreds by Arya, or at least become a shishkabob, by the fire of Drogon. I am VERY disappointed with Season 8, and don’t even consider this “Cliff Notes” version of GoT, the end. I will wait another 10 years, if that’s what it takes, for the REAL author to finish this volume, so that I could read what HIS true vision for this story REALLY is!

                                                        It all made sense. It was realistically human; it just wasn’t what we wanted.

                                                        Then again, we have to remember this is a show and not the books

                                                          Everyone is, of course, entitled to their gripes. However, some of your arguments seem to indicate that you weren’t even watching. There are three that stand out to me:
                                                          Tyrion & Jaime: The scene makes clear the two reasons Tyrion is releasing his brother. He is not trying to save him. Tyrion is, firstly, allowing Jaime the death he wants (with Cersei), and, secondly, more hopefully, having Jaime pleas for KL’s surrender.
                                                          Dany & Cersei: Dany burns KL in a long zigzag in order to rub salt into Cersei’s wound. There is no hurry to win, as Dany has already won. This is a long, painful death for her nemesis.
                                                          Hound & Arya: The Hound sends Arya away at this last minute because the staircase is literally collapsing. He wasn’t wasting her time by allowing her to tag along (Though he surely has come to enjoy her company.) He probably thought the final duel would be under different circumstances, and that Arya would slip away unharmed, after. When he saw that Arya’s death would have been an absolute certainty, in the crumbling devastation, he had to send her away.

                                                            Tyrion didn't send Jaime to his death. He sent him to try make sure Cersei surrender. He believed if Cersei didn't the city would burn. He didn't think Dany would burn it after the bells rang

Jaime was to convince Cersei to leave and Jaime was to have them ring the surrender bells. When Jaime tells Tyrion he'll surely be executed by Dany, Tyrion replies, “10,000 of innocent lives, one not particularly innocent dwarf. Seems like a fair trade.”
