When the dust is all settled and the fire has turned into ashes, one thing about Game of Thrones will always be clear: They shouldn't have tried to end the whole damn show in 13 episodes.
Daenerys Targaryen's decision to lay waste to King's Landing and torch thousands of civilians in the penultimate episode of the outrageously popular TV show has ignited a furious debate online with many fans unhappy with the show runners' handling of one of the story's main characters.
Well, the last episode of Game of Thrones, "The Bells", was a surprise.

It has felt to some fans that the show always needed her to become a monster, and that the issue for them is whilst it was always on the cards for her, the switch to madness came to fruition rather quickly this season.
As of this writing, 83 critics have lodged reviews for the episode, 42 of which are "rotten" with scores of 60 percent or lower. That's fine. It's the nature of a multi-character show.
As Tyrion Lanister once said, "I drink and I know things". "I wish we could've seen - not the seducing side, not the "I want to f-k the queen" side - but something different". That added to my dismay. Of all the characters, Sansa is making some of the most calculated moves in the final season (Cersei and Littlefinger taught her well). "But that was frustrating for a couple seasons". Whether or not you saw Daenerys doing what she did, it was still a surprise to see. "Narratively speaking, Game of Thrones did the Mother of Dragons dirty, there's no two ways around it". The series might need some Melisandre-grade magic to redeem itself from the backlash "The Bells" received, but for our part, we're still holding out hope that Thrones will make some bold moves with its finale episode and go out with a bang.
