The assassination assignments are orders from the Many-Faced God. That's why even poor people like the actress can afford them, in those cases the payment comes in the form of something that is dear to them.

Jaqen is an amazingly intelligent, spiritual, righteous and insightful man, the polar opposite of a boring loser. No wonder someone as trashy as Arya didn't fit in.

I think that's likely due to neatly resolving the which-protagonist-wins thing, but at the same time would ruin the very popular fan theory of Jon being a Targaryen, unless they went back to the traditional family incest.

When Dario said that Dany is a conquerer at heart what he really meant was she is a fluffy cliche motivational speech giver at heart.

That's actually not like Jaqen at all. I hope there is something more into that
He was trying to do her a favor. Death is a blessing from the Many-Faced God, a merciful end to the suffering that is life.

Daenerys is a terrible human being. Another one of her lame speeches to close off an episode, like it's something impactful . The episode should have ended with Benjen.

Hopefully Arya dies at the hands of Jaqen for wasting our time, but unfortunately she is one of those immortal characters.

Margaery is clearly plotting and isn't actually turned by the High Sparrow, already taking a lead on Cersei in that regard. Tommen reminds me of Goffin.

Not true at all. A silly theory. Daenerys is nothing like the Mad King.
It is clear from the beginning she is like Rhaegar. Implied throughout the books and the series.

She might make mistakes that will bite her in the end. They are making her way too powerful now and that probably spells trouble. However not because she is like Mad King, but because she is like Rhaegar. Who obviously made some mistakes. But he was not mad at all.

Viserys was mad like their father.

Targaryens are hit and miss due to generations of inbreeding. Either mad or brilliant. Mad King and Viserys were former. Rhaegar and Daenerys latter. I thought GRRM and show runners made that quite obvious.

A coincidence that the episode is bookended with a vision of the Mad King and Daenerys' speech? She stops short of condoning r a p e and pillaging like Drogo did but could she really stop the Dothraki doing that?

Yes I loved the Arya part She'll take no shit anymore

These scenes where Danaerys is a leader are pretty strong too

Tommen I wonder if Margaery convinced him to do it? She didn't know there was any rescue coming and probably did what she thought was the best to save her brother.
