Why Game of Thrones Fans Were Discontent With The Battle for King’s Landing In Scene 5

Game of Thrones’ last season has been a colossally disruptive one up until now, with individuals scrutinizing the composition and plot since it has moved far from George RR Martin’s books, and the hurried pacing.

With the most recent – penultimate – scene of the show, those reactions have apparently gone into overdrive.

Twitter is currently more ablaze than King’s Landing, with many people claiming that the showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss have ‘ruined’ the characters of Daenerys Targaryen and Jaime Lannister.

If you’ve not seen the episode yet (why are you reading this?), Dany decided to torch innocents and soldiers alike after they had surrendered, while Jaime tried to escape with Cersei and start a new life. Elsewhere, Arya abandoned her mission to kill Cersei, while Cleganebowl ended in both The Hound and The Mountain dying.

Here are just a handful of people’s unhappy tweets:

But in the interests of balance, as all things should be, many people pointed to previous scenes that hinted at Dany burning the disco down. They may not have thought it was well done, but they are saying it was in character.

And then there were some who just outright loved the episode

To be fair, Game of Thrones has never been about the typical ‘hero’s journey’. It’s a world where horrible people do horrible things, and the more noble people usually get crushed down by the horribleness.

Lena Headey revealed that her initial reaction to her final scene was “mixed”, while Varys (RIP) actor Conleth Hill has said that he was frustrated his character was sidelined in the last few seasons.
