"Game Of Thrones" Season 8, Episode 5 Was Really, Really Bad And People Are Upset

We invested a decade of our lives for THIS?! Warning: contains spoilers.

This post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 5.

HBO

Well! That was...an episode. To recap: The Lannisters surrendered but for some reason Daenerys still decided to torch ALL OF KING'S LANDING. They really made her the Mad Queen and it made no sense. Meanwhile, Jaime got to Cersei just in time for the Red Keep to fall down on their heads. Arya arrived in King's Landing in time to want to escape. The Hound killed his brother, and also himself in the process. And most of the character development of the last seven seasons feels like it's been for nothing.

Basically:

Live footage of D&D blowing up 7 seasons of character development and lore for the sake of shock and awe at the last moment #GameOfThrones

Like me, a lot of Game of Thrones fans are really, really, really upset...

1.

Dany for 7 seasons: Has never killed innocent people, stood up for them, freed slaves, people looked up to her. Dany in season 8: Hears bells of surrender and for some fucking stupid reason starts killing innocent people. #GameofThrones #DemThrones

2.

So that was it huh? #GameOfThrones
