Last chance to turn back if you haven’t watched Season 8, Episode 5 of Game of Thrones.
Episode 5 of Game of Thrones was a huge pile of dog shit—I said it. The writers decided to throw the whole show away, literally. All of the character development, the arcs, the stories—they were all for nothing.
Daenerys took on King’s Landing to burn down the entire city with everyone in it trying to get the Iron Throne—which might aswell be ash at this damn point. Even though Cersei rang the bells calling for a surrender—Dany went ape-shit and burned the entire city.
Of course, her army and Jon’s army were not far behind her. Throughout the entire episode, the soldiers looked…confused. The soldiers ended up fighting each other, even though half of them didn’t even want to fight.
But, everyone had one question—why the fuck is no one wearing a helmet?!?
Let’s face it—regardless if the armies wanted to fight, they had to fight at this point. The least they can do is protect themselves. People online were straight up wondering where the helmets were and wondering if everyone had a death wish.

It is a Game of Thrones rule that no key character, no matter how much danger there in, can ever wear a helmet during a battle.— Marc Burrows⚡️ (@20thcenturymarc) May 13, 2019
