After Ned's death last season, Dany quickly emerged (along with witty Tyrion Lannister, played by Emmy-winner Peter Dinklage ) as a fan favorite. She is the only surviving child of King Aerys Targaryen II (aka: The Mad King) who had a penchant for burning his opponents alive while he (madly) laughed. The Targaryens were said to have dragon's blood, and Dany surely does. When we last saw her, she had just survived standing in fire and now commanded three newborn dragons, which will be her biggest weapons in her attempt to retake her father's throne. Jaime Lannister, one of her dad's former guards, killed him by stabbing him in the back. If Dany succeeds, I wouldn't mind laughing while Jaime and his lovely sister burn.
