THIS IS YOUR FINAL CHANCE TO LOOK AWAY!

During the finale, Jon Snow kills Daenerys Targaryen by stabbing her in the heart.

“I think it’s going to divide,” Kit told EW. “But if you track her story all the way back, she does some terrible things. She crucifies people. She burns people alive. This has been building. So, we have to say to the audience: ‘You’re in denial about this woman as well. You knew something was wrong. You’re culpable, you cheered her on.’”

Kit also addressed how some fans will accuse the final episodes of GOT of being sexist.

“One of my worries with this is we have Cersei and Dany, two leading women, who fall,” he said. “The justification is: Just because they’re women, why should they be the goodies? They’re the most interesting characters in the show. And that’s what Thrones has always done. You can’t just say the strong women are going to end up the good people. Dany is not a good person. It’s going to open up discussion but there’s nothing done in this show that isn’t truthful to the characters. And when have you ever seen a woman play a dictator?”

“This is the second woman he’s fallen in love with who dies in his arms and he cradles her in the same way,” Kit added. “That’s an awful thing. In some ways, Jon did the same thing to [his Wilding lover] Ygritte by training the boy who kills her. This destroys Jon to do this.”

    Overall I was happy with ending. I still do not see Dany as a villain. She has done a lot of ruthless things, but always fought for powerless people in a terrible system. Quiz for GOT fans https://kveez.com/en/game-of-thrones/

    Dany is not a villain! she crucified SLAVE DEALERS! She never did anything to a person who did not deserve it! she was killed by a person she trusted! the people who actually rule the kingdoms now have done worse things. not bran, he is just a puppet (did not fight in any war, just sitting there letting it happen) but tyrion has done terrible things. sansa has done terrible things. and i think it is not a coincidence that the two are the most powerful people in the world now. also if jon really is so good at heart, why not imprison dany, like he wanted her to imprison HER enemies? this show’s 8th season is full of shit.

  • VanityInsecurity™

    they butchered Dany’s character along with everyone else.. season 8 did not make any sense & didnt connect with previous seasons. That just shows me that the show runners didn’t have the book source material to fall back on & thats why the last season was crap. I cannot believe the most honorable noble character on the show does not get a redemption Jon deserved better Dany deserved better.

    **** SPOILER ALERT *** It sucked

    She is a villain. That is the point of the story. Like Jon Snow the viewer is complicit by being swayed by her beauty . Don’t you ever get your feelings chankged due to someone’s actions? Especially in books and movies and series. It is revealed that Danerys has let her rage consume her. Killing innocents is wrong according to the writers,and the characters.

    The writers and characters see Danny as a villain. In fact they hold Jon Snow and the audience complicit in supporting her. She kills millions of innocent people. Jon is forced to kill her to stop future massacres .His bad judgement is why he does not claim his rightful claim to the throne. It is a very hard reveal but people that cannot accept a simple moral lesson in a work of art are only viewing things superficially .

    Sorry but i disagree. The development of her character is way too jumpy in season 8 and thus it doesnt make any sense. Also if you have such high morals nobody can ever be king: not jon, he killed his lover and betrayed her trust after she fought his war. Not sansa, she didnt do anything apart from getting raped (poor girl), not bran because he knew better, let everyone run into battle already sensing the outcome, and even confirming it by saying „why do you think i came all this way“. Killing dany off that way sends a very brutal message „you can have the best intentions but since you are a girl, people will call you mad (even though you dis exactly what they asked for) and then backstab you to get into power. She was nothing but a lamb in the end. A strong one, that after she served her purpose, was eliminated by an imp (a little white male, thinking he knows better whats right for the world, but actually just thinks with his cock).

    If you really think, after watching 8 seasons of game of thrones that
    A) its all just black an white, a person who does drastic things is automatically a villian
    And B) dany made any sense in season 8
    You have not watched the show carefully enough.
