It’s possible the show is setting up Dany to go mad and turn into the true antagonist of the story, but on the other hand, if Game of Thrones is a show about one thing, it’s that nice guys don’t make good rulers. Jon is humble and boots-on-the-ground and somehow still pretty naive. By contrast, Dany is a true force, even if she has qualities we don’t necessarily want to admire — possibly the right queen for the right time. That doesn’t mean I think she’s the PTWP, however; I think the entire prophecy is a red herring, sucking us in just like it does to the Stannises and Danys who hear what they want to hear.
