So true. I tell you the other thing that really bugs me as a fan is when I predict events on a show, even when I’m hacking away at the most obvious clichés.
In episode 5, we get the gratuitous Drogon landing strip scene with Jon conveniently standing at the edge of a cliff (must have been practicing his brooding.)
And so, the #3 item from my Chekov’s Tongue prediction spoof makes its way into the show:
#3: Daenerys tries to pressure Jon to bend the knee by threatening him with one of her dragons, but it walks up to him, flips onto its back and asks for a belly scratch.
Drogon didn’t exactly ask for a belly rub, but the petting zoo thing was heavy handed enough.
