Game of Thrones

HBO

With very few exceptions (Jon Snow, Sansa, Grey Worm, Samuel Tarly among them), every Game of Thrones character had serious flaws. No one proved this more than Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) who went from being arguably the most admirable character on the show to one of its deadliest villains. We rooted hard for her at the start, then watched her transform from a queen of dragons and breaker of chains into a brutal despot, as nasty as some of the ones she had dethroned.

Lots of people hate that about Game of Thrones, but to them we say: Did you watch Game of Thrones? Her transformation is a perfect expression of the shows ideas about the dangers of absolute power, and the up-and-down nature of life itself.
