Question: is anyone not rooting for Dany?
I liked her in season 1, but in season 2 she seems whiny and entitled, and acts like she has already accomplished her goals and is a powerful ruler with mighty dragons and an army at her side, when all she has up to the last episode is some pretty pets and a bunch of dying people following her around.
It started with the scene where she demands entry into Qarth and threatens
to come back to burn the city down if they don't allow her entry based on her unsubstantiated claim that she has dragons in her possession, even though everybody there at the time knows that if they turn her back she's gonna die. The only reason she didn't just die from her own stupidity right there was because she was saved by the warlocks, and then only because they (presumably, noticing that their magic was returning because of the dragons) knew that she actually had them.
Then she strolls around the city talking about how great she is, when she has done nothing to show that she deserves any respect at all (at least not to them), and demanding ships and money and all sorts of things be given to her based on what comes off as the complete delusion she entertains that she can just snap her fingers and Westeros will give itself over to her (especially considering how cluelessly she presented herself at the city gates).
Oh, and at the end of it all she kills her servant girl because the servant was sleeping with the dude who betrayed her, even though
she (implicitly) told the servant girl to sleep with him to garner his trust. And even if she hadn't, what else was that girl supposed to do, given what she thought was true? Her kalesi is dead, and her choice is between poverty/prostitution/death, or staying with the richest guy in Qarth - she did the best of the situation she was put in. And she's killed for it, even though Dany did more or less the same thing with Khal Drogo...
And then she just walks out of the city uncontested, after (by all appearances) being partially responsible for the death of the entire council, having killed the warlocks, and having now (all but) killed the most powerful guy remaining... what, doesn't that place have other, influential people? What about the families of the assassinated council? Aren't there any other warlocks? Are there no organizations to step in and do something about this? Doesn't the army that the city must have for its defence care? No ambitious officers in its ranks want to do anything about this? She has basically no guards, she just caused total havoc in the city, and then she's free to loot and pillage (albeit on a small scale)? And nobody cares? We should at least have had some scenes with the reactions of the city's second-in-line to justify this; as it was presented it seemed like the entire thing was written for The Legend of Korra or something.
Really didn't like her in S2. Felt the same way about Jon Snow, too, though that's a rant for another time.
