In the fifth episode of the eighth season, we saw almost too much to list, but primarily, there were a few things of note. Cleganebowl finally happened and it was glorious, and Cersei and Jaime Lannister died in each other’s arms.
This was basically all thanks to Daenerys though, who pretty much became the Mad Queen and burned King’s Landing to the ground, turning all of its innocent civilians to ash – as if they weren’t the people who cheered for Ned’s beheading.
That’s a lot to unfold in one episode, certainly more than someone could predict… or so you would have thought, since The Simpsons have done it again. Or rather they had done it, as the episode in question came out two years ago.
In an episode called The Serfsons, the family live in a medieval town that’s sort of a cross between Middle Earth and Westeros. When there, they basically have to put up with being poor, all the while Marge’s mum is turning into ice after being bitten by an “Ice Walker”.
Various things happen and eventually, Jacqueline Bouvier sacrifices herself to kill a dragon. As it turns out though, the dragon’s life was connected to everything magical and fantastical in this world, so Homer brings it back to life with hot coals.
The dragon then awakes and burns down the village; something that Dany echoed at Kings Landing…
Matt Groening’s done it again, hasn’t he?
That said, he also made Disenchanted and that’s probably full of Game of Thrones spoilers. The new Amazon Lord of the Rings series probably has the exact same plot.
