    Just like a Lannister always pays his debts, a MatPat always delivers his theories - and this one is a must see. With the finale of season 6 now behind us, it looks like Daenerys is in prime position to take back the throne. But I ask you loyal theorists, is that really what we want? I mean the apple usually doesn't fall to far from the try, and we all know what happened to the MAD KING! Is the same fate destined for Daenerys?

    I dont think that inbreeding can cause a baby to grow wings and scales. So yeah pretty sure it was magic.

  • Charles Haire

    You are a sexist dick for thinking that Daenerys went mad when she made the decision to burn kings landing to the ground. . If a man had to make the same decision and made the same choice it would have been seen as a good battle strategy to burn kings landing to the ground as a good decision. The deal Daeneyrs made with tyrion lanister was only IF Cersei Lannister had left kings landing she wouldn't burn kings landing to the ground and since she didn't she was totally entitled to burn it to the ground. She had no choice.

      censor me I dare you 9 days ago +2

      Charles Haire She did have a choice. And nobody discriminated against Aerys just because he was a man, they called him mad too? She went mad, for whatever her reasons, and she never should have burned an entire city of helpless people just because she doesn’t like Cersei, who btw she completely ignored during all of it

    The 'genetic predeterminism' trope was weak. The last season was shit.
    I don't really think that what we know in this world of inbreeding necessarily applies to GoT - or Jaime and Cersei's kids would have been fucked up. IIRC, there's about a 1:4 chance of a brother/sister parentage causing some nasty shit. Yet we don't see that AT ALL in GoT.
    Not to mention the Unsullied... they would be weak and small. No balls, no testosterone... their muscle growth would have been stunted, and they would likely only grow as big/strong as girls of their age.
    So I don't think genetics and all that stuff play into GoT as much as we would think.

    I came back to this video to give you all claps, major claps, for underlining the number one reason why Dany became what she became: genetics; simply put, she was built with some major missing pieces. Dany's parents were brother and sister... we knew this from the first beats. I still hate GoT's pacing for the last season, but this beat, the Mad Queen part two, was always going to be hit. Well done.

  • keenan gonsalves

    I have a fnaf theory. That that the whole thing is a government project. Think about it, how come the government hasn't stepped in. Why hasn't the franchise close down or why has there been so many murders in each location but the government hasn't shut it down yet. Also how did William Afton get all this technology in sister location. You think someone would have gotten suspicious. The reason the public doesn't know is because if the the public found out then every thing would be in a mess. Maybe William Afton is a scientist who was hired to experiment on reminent. But instead of the government killing children they hired William to do it so the public wouldn't find out.

  • Joshua Daria

    You were right: just not for the right reasons. It was Westerosi stubborness that got Dany mad, not her genes. She would've done fine had Sansa bent the knee, Cersei let Missandei go, and the Greyjoy fleet not kill Rhaegal (although that last one was quite necassary, seeing as they were at war).
    Maybe it was always in her, starting from her genetic problems, but it would've been fine if people just HELD IN THEIR PRIDE
