SPOILER ALERT!!!! If you have not watched Game of Thrones up to season 8 episode 5 then go read another post at BigMadSports.com and come back after you have watched.
Daenerys Targaryen is Jon’s queen, my queen, and your queen. Mercy is her strength. If you thought she would spare King’s Landing then I’m sorry, beta. Daenerys was shown that episode as the next “Mad King” but that is bullshit. Not once did the camera cut to Daenerys, herself, as she burned KL. I don’t know if you forgot who Daenerys is. Daenerys was on the run as a kid, her father murdered, and molested by her brother. She was sold off to the Dothraki, where she was raped repeatedly. She falls in love with her rapist, but ends up watching him and her only child die. That’s only the beginning. She gets these baby dragons, has them stolen from her by this freak Warlock, gets them back, and becomes the Breaker of Chains. Daenerys gives people a choice, let’s not forget that. She takes Jorah in, Jorah betrays her. I understand the argument that can be had there, but nonetheless, he betrayed her. Lots of things happened in between, he gets the stone disease, she tells him to get help, he does, and then becomes a member of her council. Blah blah blah, Tyrion and Varys come along, blah blah blah, Daenerys meets Jon, incest begins, blah blah blah.
Here is what I have trouble with, yes Jon Snow is a Targaryen, kind of. The Targaryens keep a close bloodline, and Jon is only half Targaryen. Daenerys is full blown Silver hair though. Jon WANTS Daenerys to sit the Iron Throne. Daenerys WANTS the Iron Throne, after-all, she deserves it more than anyone. I don’t understand this idea of people wanting Jon Snow to sit the Iron Throne because he is a “good guy”. Give me a break. Daenerys tried being the “good guy” by trying to create an alliance with the Lannisters/Starks to fight the Dead. She was mistaken. Daenerys does not like mistakes. Her dragons are the reason they were able to battle Cersei in the first place, hence burning the Dead. Cersei was given multiple chances. She could have fought with the living at the Battle of Winterfell, but she chose not to. She could have surrendered, but she chose to chop of Missandei’s head. Daenerys lost Jorah, Missandei, Khal Drogo, her baby, her two dragons, and countless numbers of the Dothraki and Unsullied. If you believe that when the Lannisters surrendered, she could have just peacefully took King’s Landing then your wrong. The Army would rebel, the citizens would rebel. She is not going to be a Queen that is loved, she will be a Queen that is feared. She used fear to take everything she has taken thus far.
Jon Snow is the rightful heir, but he is not the right heir. He is a great swordsman, and a great strategist. He is no King. It is a Game of Thrones, and Jon is okay with being in the shadows. Daenerys understands the cruel world that is Westeros more than anyone. King’s Landing is ash right now because Daenerys does not make mistakes. Westeros is now how it should be, under Targaryen rule.
