    21 Questions I Have For "Game Of Thrones" Season 8, Episode 5 That Will Probably Never Get Answered

    Why did the "we surrender" bells set off Daenerys?!

    1. Who is Varys writing these letters to?

    HBO

    Is this his version of photocopying the Burn Book in Mean Girls and spreading the copies all around school/Westeros?

    2. Is Dany's hair messy because Missandei is no longer around to braid it?

    HBO

    :-(

    3. BTW, why are there no windows in this room — I would imagine it gets VERY cold on Dragonstone with the sea being right there?

    HBO

    Although, I guess fresh air is always nice, too.

    4. Why did Varys remove his rings?

    HBO

    This was a very specific shot — is he leaving them behind for someone? I also have a theory that the stones on it are meant to poison Dany, LOL.

    5. It's no secret Dany's army is camping outside King's Landing — why doesn't Cersei and her army attack them immediately?

    HBO

    They literally had a bunch of scorpions and bowmen pointing at them at the end of the last episode.

    6. Are the Unsullied soldiers that let Tyrion talk to Jaime going to be executed — or, at least, get into BIG trouble?

    HBO

    I mean...Jaime died anyway, so NBD?

    7. These janky-looking, makeshift platforms on Euron's ships seem dangerous — was there no time to build a railing?!

    HBO

    OSHA would not be pleased.

    8. Same goes for these ones on the battlements.

    HBO

    Although, these look a LITTLE less janky at least?

    9. Why do the Golden Company have such high-waisted pants — also, is it weird that their pants go OVER their chest armor?

    HBO

    IDK, I don't make military clothing...is this normal?

    10. Why did it take Jaime SO LONG to get into King's Landing, BTW...didn't Tyrion let him go hours ago, when it was still dark out?!

    HBO

    Also, LOL at Jaime trying to use his golden hand like some Willy Wonka Golden Ticket.

    11. How the heck is Harry Strickland (and the Golden Company for that matter) considered one of the best and strongest armies?

    HBO

    Seemed pretty useless in this episode. *SHRUG*

    12. How did Qyburn know all the scorpions, Iron Fleet, and gates had been destroyed?

    HBO

    It's madness out in King's Landing, so IDK how that information would be relayed to him effectively — also, if he's just watching from various towers...wouldn't Cersei then be able to see that too?

    13. Why were these soldiers' visors open...before they surrendered?

    HBO

    Seems like an ineffective way to use a helmet.

    14. Why did the "we surrender" bells set off Daenerys?!

    HBO

    I know she went “mad,” but that seemed like a random incident to push her over the edge and start killing innocent people.

    15. Is this the exact moment Jon Snow was finally like, "Oh, this was a mistake?"

    HBO

    Oops.

    16. How much fire can Drogon actually produce and for how long?

    HBO

    Is it...endless? Does he need food or something to "refuel" or anything?

    17. How the heck did Euron miraculously survive the explosion of his boat and then perfectly arrive on shore at the exact same time Jaime was passing throught?

    HBO

    That has to be like a 1 in 100,000,000 chance right?

    18. Why did the Mountain disobey Cersei? I mean, I know he wants to kill his brother, but it's not like this is the first time they've come face to face?!

    HBO

    You'd especially think a zombie-fied Mountain would be like far more mindless and a lot less vengeful?

    19. People are going to have SERIOUS lung infections from all the rubble, right?

    HBO

    Does mesothelioma exist in Westeros?

    20. Whose horse was this?

    HBO

    Just curious.

    21. And finally, is Arya off to kill Daenerys now?

    HBO

    Or is she going to be like, "Honestly, fuck all of this," and ride back home to Winterfell.
