Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 09 Battle of the Bastards
Daenerys and Tyrion discuss a plan to deal with the slaver fleet. Daenerys wants to slaughter their army and exterminate the populace of Yunkai, Astapor, and Volantis, but Tyrion tells her of Aerys Targaryen’s similar plan to destroy King’s Landing during the Lannister siege, and suggests talking to the masters and offering them terms of surrender.
DAENERYS: I will crucify the Masters. I will set their fleets afire, kill every last one of their soldiers, and return their cities to the dirt. That is my plan. You don’t approve?
TYRION: You once told me you knew what your father was. Did you know his plans for King’s Landing when the Lannister armies were at his gates? Probably not. Well, he told my brother and Jaime told me. He had caches of wildfire hidden under the Red Keep, the Guildhalls, the Sept of Baelor, all the major thoroughfares. He would have burned every one of his citizens. The loyal ones and the traitors. Every man, woman, and child. That’s why Jaime killed him.
DAENERYS: This is entirely different.
TYRION: You’re talking about destroying cities. It’s not entirely different. I’d like to suggest an alternate approach.
Daenerys, Tyrion, Missandei and Grey Worm meet with the masters, who tell Daenerys that they will let her and Tyrion leave the city if they hand over the Unsullied and Missandei, and kill her dragons. She counters that the meeting was to discuss their surrender, not hers, and says her reign “has just begun”.
RAZDAL: Once before, I offered you peace. If you had not been so arrogant, you could have returned to your homeland with a fleet of ships. Instead, you will flee Slaver’s Bay on foot like the beggar queen you are.
TYRION: We are here to discuss terms of surrender, not to trade insults.
YEZZAN: The terms are simple. You and your foreign friends will abandon the Great Pyramid and the city of Meereen. The Unsullied you stole from Kraznys mo Nakloz will remain to be sold again to the highest bidder. The translator you stole from Kraznys mo Nakloz will remain to be sold again to the highest bidder. The dragons beneath the Great Pyramid will be slaughtered.
DAENERYS: We obviously didn’t communicate clearly. We’re here to discuss your surrender, not mine.
RAZDAL: I imagine it’s difficult adjusting to the new reality. Your reign is over.
DAENERYS: My reign has just begun.
