The whole thing sounds kind of dark.
Thanks for screwing things up!!!

I don’t see how that weapon is going to have any effect on Kahleesi’s dragons...unless they are flying straight in at the weapon on a “straffing run”. They are far too maneuverable for that thing to hit one. But, it’s TV. So it will work at least once.
Then why did you click on a thread with Game of Thrones in the title?
Easy they’ll put a heat seeking front end on the quarrel!
Or as my wife would respond to my outrage at such a feat against a huge dragon in flight:
"Because it was in the script dear."
That is what I tell my husband.
