"The Bells" should have been the triumphant climax for "Game of Thrones." It was the battle we all were waiting for. The good guys finally made it to King's Landing, and justice would be done.
But "Game of Thrones" Season 8, Episode 5 gave fans something different: a look at the horrors of war, the power of legacy, and the unsatisfying end to some of our favorite characters.
Sunday was the day many viewers said "enough," but a small contingent said, "Let's take a second look." And some even said, "We don't want justice. We want destruction."
Join Gene Lyons and Dick Ebert as they debate whether Daenerys is truly a Mad Queen or simply a brutal conqueror who is perfectly sane. Examine which deaths were deserved and what happens now that the fires have turned to ash. Learn more about character arcs and why some of them feel less gratifying than others.
And, of course, we've gotta talk about that Euron's and Jaime's Knife Party at The Cove.
