While the fans waited eagerly for Game of Thrones season 8, many of them are left disappointed after their favourite character Daenerys Targaryen has gone full mad queen in the last episode The Bells. She stormed into the King's Landing mounted on her last dragon Drogon and burnt the city to bricks and stones. Her mindless act left millions of people dead including Cersei Lannister and Jaime Lannister. Soon after the episode, not only Tyrion Lannister but many fans also changed their allegiance. They were disappointed with the show's lead actress Daenerys' actions and also slammed the makers for turning her into a villain.
After the backlash, Emilia Clarke who plays Daenerys in the show took to her Instagram to react to the episode. She shared a picture of herself holding a large bottle of champagne.

On the other hand, Game of Thrones' directors DB Weiss and David Benioff explained why they turned Dany into a violent mad queen.
They said, "I don't think she decided ahead of time that she was going to do what she did," Weiss said in Game of Thrones' Inside the Episode feature. "And then she sees the Red Keep, which is, to her, the home that her family built when they first came over to this country 300 years ago. It's in that moment on the walls of King's Landing, when she's looking at that symbol of everything that was taken from her, when she makes the decision to make this personal."
