Dani Addresses Her Troops and Takes Command of The 7 Kingdoms
As the Game of Thrones Finale progressed, Dani spoke to her troops and made it clear, she was not done the fighting. She told her warriors that they would continue to fight until they broke the wheel and freed enslaved people for all of humanity. After her speech, as she stood at the base of the burned-out castle, Tyrion confronted Dani. He expressed his disgust the slaughter of the city and renounced his position as her hand. She called him out for treason for trying to save his brother and placed him in custody. We all know this meant Tyrion was a dead man under Dani’s rule.
Jon was turning to go see Tyrion in custody and ran into Arya. Arya grabbed him and warned him about Daenerys. She said he should keep in mind that his Queen knows who he really is and that he is a threat to her. Jon then visited Tyrion in custody. Jon was obviously trying to make some sense of it all. However, I also think he wanted to find a way to save Tyrion. Surprisingly, after all, he had seen, Jon made it clear to Tyrion that he was going to continue to follow Dani. Tyrion being himself, was sure to give his opinion. He did his best to convince Jon that she was just as bad or worse than Cersei. Jon told Tyrion that “love is the death of duty”. Tyrion answered that “sometimes, duty is the death of love”. He left Tyrion giving us no clear idea of what he was thinking or planning. However, it was clear he was torn and troubled.
The Troubled Lovers Jon and Daenerys
The next thing that happened in the Game of Thrones Finale was that Jon went to see Dani. He found her in the ruins of the throne room admiring the Iron Throne. The throne was now sitting in the open as the walls surrounding it had been leveled. She looked upon it as Jon walked into the palace area. She told him what she had always thought the Iron Throne would be like. She expected it to be much bigger, more meaningful and it was clear she was disappointed how small it was. The Iron Throne was not enough and nothing would ever be enough. She touched it, but she never turned and sat on the throne.
Jon confronted her about the execution of remaining soldiers and the murder of thousands of innocent people & children. He begged her to show Tyrion and the others mercy. Dani flatly rejected these suggestions and defended her actions. She told Jon “it is not easy to see something that had never been before, a good world”. Jon asked her how she knew it would be good which she answered, “because I know what is good”. Jon asked her, “what about everyone else, all the other people who think they know what’s good”. Dani simply answered, “they don’t get to choose”. This statement sealed her fate with Jon as he knew there was no hope, she was corrupted by power.
The Death of Daenerys
In her final scene, Dani still loved Jon and she pulled him in close to embrace him. She was asking him to build a new world with her, to break the wheel together. Jon told her “you are my Queen, now and always” and kissed her in what seemed like a passionate moment until Jon shoved a dagger up through her heart. That was that no secret Arya plot, no Tyrion climbs to power. Jon Snow killed his Queen, his true love and his aunt.
Drogon sensed her death and swooped in. Finding her dead, he got in Jon’s face ready to burn him down. Instead, he turned and burned down the Iron Throne, melting it to molten steel instead. It appears Drogon realized that the pursuit of the throne killed his Queen. Besides that, I am not sure Jon could die from dragon fire since he is Targaryen. Drogon picked up Dani’s body in his claws and swooped off leaving Westeros.
