Game of Thrones’ Season 8, Episode 5 Recap
According to the fans, the fifth episode was a horrifying, thrilling and frustrating. They have talked about various theories where Khalesi got pushed to the brink of madness after the death of her closed ones including Missandei. Jon was the last one to drive her the edge by saying “I do love you but, ew, I can’t.”
Moreover, she isolates herself in Dragonstone. Plus, she is changing into a Mad Queen with her maniac look. Her hairs were dishevelled in the absence of Missandei. In this season, Daenerys got humiliated at Winterfell. Then Jon Snow who was her boyfriend became her rival.
Moreover, he rejected her love. She also saw her most trusted person die in front of her eyes. Besides, Tyrion always gave her the wrong advice. These things are responsible which are slowly turning her into a Mad Queen.
From the beginning of the show, we have seen how ruthless she is with her rivals which includes Mirri Maz Duur, the Lannister army, the Essos slave masters and the Tarlys. Also in Qarth, she promised to burn cities to the ground. However, she has always shown sympathy for oppressed people. Her pity was the main thing that got upended.
Lastly, the battle was sickening for some fans. The army which we have been cheering up for has killed innocent, chopped off hands and heads without any mercy.
