Rally the realm – only 1 day to go until we return to the bloody shores of Westeros, where the gods are old and new, where fear cuts deeper than swords, and where, inevitably, all men must die.
To celebrate the start of season 7, on each of the 7 days (see what I’m doing here) leading up to our return to the 7 kingdoms I will recap a character’s best bits of season 6 – a year when kings died, fire reigned and a girl was definitely someone.
*Season 6 spoilers – obviously*
Here are DAENERY’S TARGARYEN’S TOP 5 MOMENTS of season 6
Because naturally I save the best for last.
DAENERYS PLAYS WITH FIRE
The mother of dragons fears NOTHING. And she has heard allll those threats before guys. This Khaleesi is born to rule…and to burn the house down.
DAENERYS RETURNS TO HER DOTHRAKI ROOTS
This speech has a little of the mad king about it. I love that she rallies the troops, but she does sound a teeny bit tyrannical here – just enough to keep team Dani on our toes. I LOVE that she is back with the Dothraki again – they awakened her inner fire, and the mother of dragons needed reminding of her true self.
DAENERYS DOES NOT SURRENDER
I feel like they forgot she has dragons. Her? Surrender? I think not.
DAENERYS PICKS HER CHAMPION
First she dumps Daario (yay!) then she names our favourite drinking dwarf Hand of the Queen. A good day’s work Dani. Bravo. Did I cry when she handed Tyrion his pin? Nope, just something in my eye *sob*.
DAENERYS MEETS A FELLOW QUEEN
Every feminist bone in my body cheered at this scene. A true meeting of queens, both hoping rule better than their father’s before them. Here’s hoping their dreams come true, and that Yara survives her mad uncle, and Dani does not become the Mad Queen…tomorrow the story continues.
