In today’s episode of ‘That’s Why We Can’t Have Nice Things’, we bring you a petition signed by a group of 2,000 people who have suffered from such severe PTSD over the past few years. game of thrones the seasons they would see Dragon House Writer Sara Hess loses her job for a scene they took issue with.
In fairness, petition creator J.Oiko was relatively cordial in the arguments they made, citing the respect they have for Hess’s work on Orange is the new black, before diving into the reasoning behind why she should be dropped from the show.
J. Oiko alleges that Hess was unable to substantiate the reasoning behind Rhaenys Targaryen’s actions at the end of episode nine, The Green Council. It’s a shame that many of the other signatories of the petition have resorted to sexism and general vitriol.

Keep in mind, however, that we’re only one season deep in the game of thrones prequel, and many recovery and gap filling has already taken place in the showwhich no one has talked about much.
Do you seriously believe that Alicent would have taken Viserys’ last painful and delirious ramblings as gospel? No – everyone on this show makes absurd decisions at one time or another, that’s how Westeros rolls.
You didn’t like the ending Game of thrones. We understood. We have all done it. But is it really worth a writer losing his job because you disagree with Rhaenys’ decision not to fry the crispier Greens?
