This story includes spoilers for 'Game of Thrones' Season 8, Episode 5, "The Bells."
After Daenerys Targaryen's attack on King's Landing in the most recent Game of Thrones episode "The Bells," many fans were not supportive that Khaleesi chose to decimate the capitol instead of just going straight for her target, Cersei Lannister. Now another hit show, AMC's The Walking Dead, has even poked fun at the divisive episode.
On The Walking Dead's official Twitter account, they hilariously wrote, "Rick would have just gone for the tower." This suggests that Rick Grimes, the main character who recently exited The Walking Dead, would have had mercy on the innocent citizens and would have just went for the real enemy.

To say that "The Bells" didn't go as fans expected is putting it lightly. The episode received the lowest ratings on Rotten Tomatoes in the show's history, as many were upset that the episode seemed rushed and destroyed characters' arcs.
Even though The Walking Dead's writing hasn't been up to par lately either for many, we likely could've still counted on Rick to at least be more human with his decisions. Daenerys, on the other hand, has just proved she's just like her father, the late Mad King.
It will be interesting to see how Daenerys justifies killing thousands of people on a whim in the final episode this week. And we can bet many more Twitter users will be weighing in.
