Warning: This article contains speculations and spoilers for Season 8
A plotline that was long anticipated by fans did come true in the latest episode of 'Game of Thrones' as the Mother of Dragons burned the very people she wanted to save. The signs of Daenerys turning into her Mad King father had been there all along this season, especially in the last couple of episodes when she seemed frustrated that things weren't going her way. The fuming anger, the paranoia, and the epic impulsiveness — the dragon queen was losing control and yet, no one other than Varys saw what was happening.
In the latest episode, she unleashes her one dragon onto the master of spies and offs him for trying to stop her from sitting on the Iron Throne. The rest of the Northern gang still live in denial but, everything turns upside down after she rides onto a surrendered King's Landing and burns it down to ashes. While many theories had been sure that Dany would resort to wildfire, little did they realize that one fully grown dragon was all she needed.
The finale trailer follows the storyline as it writhes and reels from the spoils of a one-sided war. Tyrion and Arya make notable appearances in the trailer, both well and alive. Arya, mysteriously enough is unaffected by the dragon fire, and Tyrion looks like he's made the worst decision of his life - his queen was mad and he had failed to see it.
The trailer shows Tyrion walking through a burnt down King’s Landing with fires still burning on the streets. He looks aghast at the sight in front of him and equally shocked at the reality of it all. Arya approaches a crowd of soldiers who appear to be gathered around something as a group of Dothraki raise their scimitars and scream in celebration. Daenerys enters the scene as she looks over what is left of her soldiers and the city as the Unsullied and the rest stand awaiting orders.
