@Broadbull, Enabler of Uncounted Combos "She liberated the people of Slaver's bay, she liberated the people of Kings Landing" Yes Tyrion is trying to say she will keep on going but if his list is of bad things she did then why did he start it off mentioning a good thing or vice versa. If she was going to liberate places like she did Slaver's Bay then let her have at it. Of course this isn't madness on her part but rather a goal-possibly ridiculously hard to reach (at least without armies that don't respawn)-but not madness on her part. It isn't fascism either. So now there are three options for why Daenerys supposedly burned King's Landing but they don't really make sense. Now if she is bringing paradise then how were a bunch of peasants stopping her (and requiring her to burn the who city)? Maybe its me but I feel like the script had her do something ridiculously out of character and now is trying to find strings of words to excuse it. But at least Tyrion told him she would kill him yet it turns out she still wants him (thus not likely to murder Jon Snow) when Jon reaches the throne room. So if Tyrion is lying about that maybe he is lying in the rest of the nonsense. He talked about Varys being right yet if what Varys did is one of the things that sent Daenerys over the edge it is actually a self fulfilling prophesy-which means Varys was wrong because if he had left her alone both he and thousands of people in King's Landing would be alive.
Broadbull, Enabler of Uncounted Combos
@pplr1 you're misunderstanding tyrion there, he uses the word liberate to imply she's going to inflict the same kind of 'liberation' as she inflicted upon kings landing upon the rest of westeros, putting it in Jon's head that that implication exists when Dany later speaks of it. Freedom can and has been used as a metaphor for death, & Tyrion deliberately uses it there, that is manipulation & clever words, not madness.

@Broadbull, Enabler of Uncounted Combos Show continuity died long before this. Though this may be one more nail in the coffin. Tyrion suffers madness as well though because they both use the word liberated for what happened in King's Landing. It is just extra confusing with Tyrion because he used it properly (freed) and improperly (turned to ashes) once right after the other.
Broadbull, Enabler of Uncounted Combos
@pplr1 due to the decisions of the episode director Dany fried the people of King's Landing, she didn't free them, she 'liberated' them by killing them. That was a decision by the director of that singular episode though, it chimes really badly with the following episode as a result feeling nonsensical & makes her as far as the show continuity is concerned utterly coocoo at that point.

Imagine trying to explain and justify season 8 at all, like you try to say Drogon had motive for burning the throne yet the very script itself says Drogon burned the throne for no reason it was just in his way lol

political jon, season 7 and 8, jon never loved dany, he played her like fiddle to get what he wanted, to protect the most important things to him, the north and his family, esp sansa, jonsa confirmed, game of thrones has a way of repeating itself, a Targaryen prince falling in love with stark princess, and now he is king beyond the wall, he is bael the bard and stark princess, and war of the roses, a tudor married a York, so a Targaryen marries a stark, but im still rooting in the books for sansa to end up with the hound, the only one of four suitors who ddint betray her

What's the fucking deal with HBO shows and circular symbology? Is the fixation with wheels and loops and flat circles supposed to signify that no matter how strong an HBO show starts, it'll inevitably turn to shit at some point before the finale? Because that seems to be the pattern.

The way the show concluded, it seems as if Bran and Sansa are evil. i mean it seems as if Sansa wanted to be queen of the seven kingdoms her self if not so why did she tell her uncle to sit down why did she even get involved when they were selecting the new king or queen. Bran on the other hand it seems as if he can manipulate future events, so i gas it has been him using his magic to end up being king

I am someone from brasil that apparently knows more than you about this show. Now that i got your attention, here`s some pieces of truth that also apparently seems dismissed from everyone makin some analysis videos, i won`t try to explain everything, I DON`T WANT IT, but is the truth
The north is bigger than the seven kingdoms, influence grows like a 420.
Grey worm said it`s not enough, that should be enough to take his words seriously, as bran knows the small council will improve, he just didn`t said how.
Cersei and Jamie swap bodies at the end of season 7.
i could say so much more but it feels unfair at this point. The night is dark and full of terrors

This was perfectly explained, and give some credit back to the story writers. Ultimately, fans are upset for a lot of unjustified reasons. Some just wanted Dany on the Throne, or Jon, and to them that makes a good story, and anything that isn't what they want is shit. Which just isn't fair. The story of Game of Thrones is larger then any one King or Queen, its about Democracy vs Dictatorship.

No explanation needed. The writers and the producers of the show surely had enough and just wanted to end it, no matter how much it would disappoint the loyal followers of the show and readers of the books. It became apparent by the end of season 7. I still admire the series via seasons 1-5 and the books as well. However, the ending was just a lazy excuse to end the show so D&D could continue on their way to collect bigger paychecks. It becomes apparent when the individual plots, character development, and dialogue are reduced to that of which the smallfolk can follow and appreciate.

And westeros went from a corrupted Absolute Monarchy leaded by an incompetent King and a council of Corrupted Warmongers..:... to an Absolute Monarchy leaded by an Inhuman Orwellian Tree Boy and a council of Corrupted, Drunken Whoremongers. Now Westeros will be a 1984 like nightmare, leaded by an Inhuman God emperor and is cohort of corrupted lords who’s only interest is fucking Whores and Drinking till death. Besides Davos and Sam, of course.

Elections for leaders would not work on the large scale cuz majority of the common folk are uneducated.
They can be easily swayed or forced, one way or another, to vote for particularly people.
To have a well led democracy, they need a “Bill of Rights” which will not happen any time soon in this universe.
Elections work for smaller scale communities and/or ones that need a leader that is not dependent on blood or family to have status to rule.

I think everyone is misinterpreting Brans comment on “why do you think I came all this way?” The question he was asked was “will you be our king? Will you guide the 7 kingdoms to the best of your ability?” Brans whole story was to become the three eyed raven to help guide people. I bet he expected to just be helping and guiding the new ruler. Instead they made him the ruler so he could guide the world. That was his point anyway which is why he says “Why do you think I came all this way?”

The fact Sansa declares herself Queen of the north shouldve led to more fighting and death.
Every other high lord would proclaim themselves king or queen .
Its almost borderline evil that she spits on the chance to unite the kingdoms under peace with all the other high lords because she wants a sense of power for herself
It's kinda insulting

They failed spectacularly to combine the blood magic in GoT with the more human aspects of the plot. Literally, half of the show doesn't make any sense because the Night King and the Bloodraven plots were a muddled mess. They don't fit at all in the show.

I may have already commented on this, but the show runners clearly have no idea how feudalism works. Or.. it could be a bit of Fridge Brilliance in that Grey Worm doesn’t understand how feudalism works. “You’re not a slave, therefore you serve Cersei willingly”

An idea for some more alt shift x videos could be book recaps in sections, maybe 5-10 chapters at a time, quickly summarizing the books. another youtuber called alt schwift x (you probably havent heard of him) does chapter recaps but they are all pretty much an hour long per chapter. If we could get main plot points with minimum tangents on this channel that would be fantastic

Jon did not finish his life at the Wall. John abandoned the wall to live with the Wildlings. It was clear that Tyrion regretted his decision in nominating Bran as ruler once Sansa declared the North would stay independent and Bran agreed. Tyrion saw that the Starks were in a position to rule all of Westeros and maintain legitimacy to the throne for generations to come. The entire series is about history repeating itself. I bet in 1000 years time, Jon will be the Lord Commander that fell in love with a mysterious white woman, leave his watch (in one way or another) to be with the mysterious white woman, call himself King of the North (probably through convoluted 'records') "beyond the Wall," they will have a period in which they rule until the Lords south of the wall rise to fight and Jon loses her in a great battle full of magic and wild stories of great mythical beasts... and when she dies, Jon (or the Stark who called himself King of the Wildlings will disappear and be lost to tales of a Night's Watch former Lord Commander, left his watch in sorrow and despair to wander the North forever searching for his white queen.
