Drogon: Destroying Symbols Of The Past Is The Only Way To Move America Forward

by Boobie

When Drogon, the lone remaining dragon in the world of Game of Thrones, melted the Iron Throne that his rider Daenerys Targaryen spent her life seeking and eventually lost her life obtaining, many viewers were miffed. Why, they wondered, would the dragon destroy a metal chair it had never seen before, rather than Jon Snow, the man who killed Daenerys? It seemed a strangely symbolic decision for a dragon to make, even if they throne itself being destroyed would have been a fitting thematic decision in a vacuum. Well, it turns out that the actor who played Drogon pushed for this choice to be in the final episode’s script.
