If there is one person who ruled over the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, it is none other than Daenerys Targaryen. The show finally confirmed her becoming the Mad Queen. But at a huge cost, though, as the Dragon Queen completed her father's wish of 'Burn Them All'. In her anger towards Cersei Lannister for the deaths of her dragon Rhaegal and her friend Missandei, Daenerys and her dragon, Drogon, laid waste to King's Landing and the destruction killed Cersei, Jaime and many innocent citizens.

I don''t mourn for Jaime Lannisters' death. I mourn for the death of his character development instead. #GameofThrones

The fifth episode of Game of Thrones may have been high on technical aspects and is impressive in its scale. But it has also disappointed the GoT fans for being very low on character development and rushing things through.
