About

"Dany Kind of Forgot About the Iron Fleet" refers to a memorable quote said by HBO-produced fantasy series Game of Thrones writer David Benioff in the commentary for episode "The Last of the Starks". Following the premiere of the episode, the quote was widely mocked and used to highlight the decreased quality of the writing in the late seasons of the series.

Origin

On May 5th, 2019, episode four "The Last of the Starks" of season eight of HBO-produced fantasy series Game of Thrones premiered.[1] In the commentary for the episode,[2] one of the series writers David Benioff commented on the scene in which a fleet of enemy ships manages to sneak up on two dragons and shoot down one of them with a projectile from a significant distance.



While Dany kind of forgot about the Iron Fleet and Euron's forces, they certainly haven't forgotten about her, and they are just waiting for her to come back.

Spread

On May 6th, Redditor FireFissting posted a screenshot of the quote titled in a Mocking Spongebob manner to /r/freefolk subreddit, with the post receiving over 9,900 upvotes in four days (shown below).[3]

It sounds more like you "kind of forgot about" a way of several to not make the whole thing completely retarded. Even a moment of overconfidence from Dany only to realize she was charging ballistas head-on would've been better than "OOPS, EURON IS A WIZARD WITH WOODEN RAILGUNS"
