The Game of Thrones has really caught my eye . I’ve taken quite a liking to it. The world that the characters live in is cruel and bleak. It’s a very bloody dreary world. The morality of the characters isn’t black and white. It’s one dark murky shade of grey. The characters never feel safe. At any moment, they could just die a horrible death. I love it. It’s a show I have to marathon watch.
There’s just one problem. Everyone in the show’s world is connected. The show shows the different perspectives of characters whose fates are intertwined. There’s just one character who is isolated from the rest of them. Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Dragons, is far away in a distant land.
Her perspective isn’t intertwined like the others. I understand why her perspective is used in the show, but I still don’t like it. I just want her segments to be over with so I can get to other characters who interact with each other. There is a large battle scene towards the end of the second season. So many characters’ fates depend on this battle. Many plotlines coverage at this point. Even those who aren’t in the area, they have a distant connection and will be directly affected by the outcome of the battle. Not Daenerys. Win or lose, the battle didn’t matter to her. She has no connection with any of the other characters.
At the same time the large battle was happening, she was searching for her dragons. I didn’t care for her scenes after the battle. I wanted to see what happened to everyone after the battle not watch her get her dragons back. There is another isolated character, John Snow. I like his scenes because he has a connection with the other characters. He used to be with everyone and then he left to go to the Wall. The other characters mention him. There’s an inner conflict of him trying to go back on his vows and help his family. He also fights zombies which is more entertaining than Daenerys’s plotline.
Daenerys is also the only character who I feel is safe and will never die. Her storyline and character arc during the first season was phenomenal.It’s unfortunate that the characters that kept her part of the story entertaining ended up dying by the end of the first season. If Drago or her brother had survived, I wouldn’t have any gripes. I had hope for her this season since I thought she was going to meet up with the other characters. She didn’t.
She’s also whiny and entitled. I might just start skipping her parts next season.
