The fifth episode of "Game of Thrones"As expected, a massacre, as the Hollywood reporter predicted a week ago.
– During the last season of "Game of Thrones" the screenwriters and "showrunners" have David Benioff and D.B. Weiss built on the idea that madness occurs in the Targaryen family and that the Daenerys Targaryen can click at any time and become a dangerous tyrant, writes The Verge.
– Took it very personally
In the fifth and second final episode, it was the turn of the & # 39; Battle of Kings Landing & # 39 ;. It marked the end of a number of key figures in the series.
After the 80-minute episode, Kings Landing was in ruins after a cruel massacre of both soldiers and civilians by Daenery & # 39; s army and dragon.
Conleth Hill, who plays Lord Varys, had to pay for life before the battle at Kings Landing. Earlier in the eight season, he stated that he would support Jon Snow as the legitimate heir to the throne, when Daenerys found out he was being killed quickly because of his betrayal.
Because of this, the actor fell heavily in front of him.
– I took it very personally. I took it as a person, not as an actor or artist, he says to Entertanment Weekly.
Kristofer "Tormund" Hivju on episode 4: – Does she mean wrong?
Hill continues to say that he cannot avoid the feeling that he does not meet expectations. At the same time, he says it helps to see others who have worked well, sitting just as hard in the same boat.
– Nothing can comfort me afterwards. I kept thinking; "What did I do wrong?", He continues.
Now, however, he sees the death of Varys as noble and completely justified. He calls the decision to make Daenery & # 39; s black for "brilliant".
– He was absolutely the man of his word.
Crazy or angry?
The fact that Daenerys showed no emotions when the brother Viserys was killed by Khal Drogo in the first season is interpreted as a front view. At the same time, it is somewhat difficult to see the connection, especially since her brother sold her as a sex slave, making her shoulder logical to Viserys, The Verge writes in her review.
The New York Times asks if Daenerys is just angry or as crazy as it seems. They point out that the character Varys was right when he betrayed her and tried to get Jon Snow to claim the throne.
"Game of Thrones" player on episode four: – Distorted and uncomfortable
"Half of the Targarys went crazy, didn't they?" Cersei Lannister asked Tyrion before continuing; "Every time a Targary is born, the gods strike crowns and coins."
But the newspaper does not dare to be sure that Daenery has lost his mind. They point out that the coin often ends up on the edge and wonders if the saying is exaggerated. They believe that the madness of the family is often due to things other than mental disorders.
– And is Dany assessed on the basis of the gender-based stereotype image of "crazy" women? How different is this from the terrible things we have seen in this story (but on a smaller scale, because they did not have dragons)? they ask.
Slate, on the other hand, does not believe that Daenery should be a strong feminist hero. They think the series has so many strong women anyway that if it turns out she's a bad apple, it won't spoil the rest.
They emphasize Arya, Sansa, Brienne, Cersei and Melisandre who have survived several of the great male characters.
