Spoiler front Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 2, "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms".
Game of Thrones "Daenerys Targaryen was a formidable queen-making since the end of Season One's first season, but her Westerosi allies are just beginning to realize this. The latest episode of the series, "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms," begins with her confrontation with her father's murderer, Jaime Lannister, King of Kings. "When I was a kid, my brother told me a bedtime story about the man who murdered our father," she says. "Who stabbed him in the back and cut his throat? He also told me other stories about all the things we would do to this man as soon as we seized the Seven Kingdoms and got him within reach."
Daenery's Daenerys gives all Starks and their allies a good chance to vouch for Jaime, with the clear consent that she intends to execute him, probably in a memorable way, when she hears no good reason to hold back , Surprisingly, several people come to his rescue, despite Jaimes long sin book (especially incest with his sister Cersei and the attempt to murder the ten-year Bran Stark, because he had discovered this incest).
A strange, powerful dynamic emerges in the final episodes of Game of Thrones in which the characters are reminded that Daenerys may be a vengeful queen, much like Cersei in a sense, though it's obvious not so crazy. The Season 8 premiere showed that Jon Snow and his best friend Samwell Tarly did not know that Daenerys had burned Sam's father and brother because they refused to kneel before her.
Your New Allies may not have all of these details from their story – though Varys probably does and may have shared that – but even if they do not know the steps they take to get the Tarlys burned they saw their recklessness up close. In Season 8, Episode 2, we see characters who have no reason to love Jaime, who protects him from the bloody punishment that Daenerys dangles in front of him.
"I trust you with my life. You trust him with yours. We should let him stay, "says Sansa as soon as Brienne of Tarth vouches for him. Jon simply says, "We need every man we can get." Bran, the fortune-teller of the show, keeps silent about how Jaime pushed him from a tower.
It is clear that Bran remembers what Jaime did. He even reminds him by saying, "The things we do for love," Jaime said as he pushed Bran out of the window in the first season. But Bran later says to Jaime, "I'm not mad at anyone. To be able to help us in this fight if they let you be murdered first. "He understands that if Jaime had shared his story, he would have lost his support from the Starks and surely executed Daenerys Jaime.
Every Stark has reason to hate the Lannisters. But they come anyway to Jaimes defense, partly from the need of the soldiers to fight the army of the dead, partly because they saw what Daenerys can do. The fear of Daenerys even goes as far as what she could do to Tyrion Lannister, after he mistakenly advised her to trust Cersei to send her armies north to fight the Wights.
"A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms" relies heavily on characters who cautiously attempt to manage Daenerys. After the sequence with Jaime, Jorah Mormont comes to Dany's chamber and asks her to forgive Tyrion. It is strange evidence that Daenerys Tyrion has not directly threatened anything, and since Jorah and Tyrion are not exactly friends. But Jorah knows exactly what it's like to be a consultant on Danys bad side. In Season 4, she learns that Jorah has betrayed her by selling information about her to Varys and exhorting her to Jorah. When he tries to save himself in a gladiatorial game in the fifth season, she refuses to save him if he is wounded. He knows first hand how cold she can make her former allies if they let her down.
These fascinating power games once reduced the Game of Thrones to short, narrative talks. Given how little Game of Thrones is left, and how much scope there is, the series is unlikely to have time to fully engage with the issues it develops, such as mercilessly Dany can handle threats and how carefully your counselors have to sneak around them.
But those little nods towards their fearlessness might give more reason to Jon Snow – alias Aegon Targaryen, the true heir to the Iron Throne – to believe he has a duty to assert his birthright and keep Daenerys from becoming queen from Westeros. As we approach the final four episodes of the show's final season, it seems the showrunners are trying to build more tension between Daenerys and Jon and more reason for their old followers and their new allies from the north, them in the last wars to interrogate. As Jon says, houses and old alliances may not be so important in a war on the dead, and they "just need every man they can get." But there comes a second war for the survivors, and he reminds the audience that Daenerys is a simple black and white heroine who can help build up the stakes in this war.
