The penultimate episode of the series, which aired last night on HBO, delivered some real craziness. Unfortunately, however, it’s the twists and deaths that have longtime fans in an uproar. Perhaps the biggest objection is about Daenerys Targaryen. She’s always been the hero of Thrones, overcoming odds and appearing to be a just and fair queen. Mostly. But this season has her turning into the villain, especially after last night, when she burned the Red Keep to the ground, people and all. Hail the mad queen!
Jaime Lannister’s character development has also seemed completely wasted. He’s spent nearly the entire series trying to find redemption and then what happens?
