    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?

    No offence to anyone, but frankly speaking I would be more surprised if the people from GOT were sane. Like seriously have you seen the kind of shit they have been through?

    Good Job MatMat! After season 3 my sister was telling me how great Dany is and how she is 100% going to sit on the iron throne. I told her not if Dany goes mad first and I stuck to my guns ever since, boy oh boy was my sister mad 🤣

    This wouldn't be provable because of the rule of exemplarity effecting Valyrians and historically targaryens have been fine from inbreeding, the rule of exemplarity is cited in fire and blood and appears to have basis in fact

    I think D&D saw this and used it as an excuse for the shitty ending we got TvT
    Before anyone says that Mad Queen was gonna happen, let me say I was actually considering a Mad Queen route. It’s not impossible and this video makes sure to highlight why it would be possible. The problem people have with Dany becoming he Mad Queen in the series is because they didn’t sufficiently set it up. Foreshadowing is not causation nor character development: they didn’t make it believable.
    If they had used let’s say another two seasons setting it up in a believable way, making sure that they don’t eff up her character development so far but developing her further into a Mad a Queen, hey that’s cool. You want a Mad Queen? Make her believable, scary. I want to fear her because I understand why she is doing what she did. Don’t make me question her entire authenticity. They can’t just SAY Targaryen gene unlocked in the last few episodes, they should have set it up from the get go, in the series. A Mad Queen would make sense, it makes sense! But only if you make the story go there in believable fashion!! That’s what a show is! Ok I’m done I’ll go cry in my corner again
