Defending Daenerys' Heel Turn, and How We Think 'Game of Thrones' Ends

Season 1, Ep. 30

If you haven't watched the penultimate episode of "Game of Thrones," you should skip this episode, and also tweet at @timamolloy or @alanton11 for our HBO Go passwords. Because you're going to want to be caught up for the finale this Sunday.

On this episode, we gave a dragon-fiery debate whether the show properly set up Daenerys Targaryen's heel turn, examine whether Targaryens have dragon blood, talk WAY too much about Targaryen inbreeding, and predict in extensive detail how we think "Game of Thrones" will end.

We also play Daenerys Advocate to point out that what she did to King's Landing isn't that different than, oh, say, what the United States did to Japan at the end of World War II. War is hell, and history is a series of overreactions.
