By cherry-picking a few lines while ignoring the countless others that go contrary to this opinion ? I didn't find his argument convincing at all, I found it was just the perfect example of why the show is declining (following typical "narrative logic" instead of "actual logic", and a pretty weak narrative logic at that). Yes it's pure comic book villainy, based on comic book logic (ie : take whatever pretext is available to justify the plot going the way you wanted it to go, ignoring it would be completely idiotic outside of a comic book). It's a lot like the typical "someone who was a good guy becomes a villain because he blames [whoever is needed] for not being able to save his wife, instead of, you know, blaming the actual murderer" : it makes no actual sense, but provides some sort of pretext so it's deemed acceptable. Also, reminder : it's not the fact that Dany ENDS UP a villain which is a problem. It's HOW, HOW FAST and the MANNER of villain she becomes which just break the suspension of disbelief. I would totally buy Dany who starts as a queen full of good intentions and becomes tyrannical because "her way is the good way" and people who disagree start from being "misguided" to being "traitors", and an increasingly repressive regime with increasingly grisly punishment. THAT would both be in-line with her character and provide enough time for the switch to be credible. But suddenly razing it all ? It's just not in-character, it's just caricaturaly evil and it's, in the end, simply stupid. The "shock and awe" is already done with her dragon destroying the whole fleet, fortifications and golden company in seconds. Massacring civilians who have nothing to do with anything after she has already won is just going to make her hated by everyone, including her former allies. That's, again, comic book logic, not real one.
