Problem with Dany as the big bad though is they only have a one episode build to it vs 8 seasons of say The Night King. Hell watch the first ever episode the build was for the white walkers.
I have an idea on how to explain Drogon's dominance this episode.
Euron only managed to get three scorpions constructed and their crews trained. The ones that killed Rhaegal.
The rest of the scorpions were literal cardboard cutouts. Dany figured it out because she is also a cardboard cutout this season.
Euron is also a cardboard cut out, cut from the same place they made Captain Marvel.
In other news there is a youtube vid going around by actor Ian McElhinney (Ser Barristan Selmy) at a 2019 russian con where he states that GRRM finished books 6+7 but cut a deal to release them soon after season 8.

If this is true...
Oh, right. Let's just toss the whole prophecy out the window with that one. The least they could have done would have been to have him tenderly holding her neck while kissing her when they died, so at least she could have died with the younger brother's hands around her neck like the prophecy said.
I've watched far more than you, I bet.
I can't think of another episode of anything that had so much stupid, illogical stuff going on, I'll say that much.
And I will argue objectively that you are wrong.Oooo, is this where we get to list off how much media we've consumed in an effort to see which of us is the superior nerd? Hard pass.
If you think it was that bad, for you, then fine by me. I will argue that objectively, there are worse.
I mean, it's not great, and it certainly isn't (IMO) the best it's been, but I don't get some of the hate.
Well, actually, I do.
I think that so many people are so very very invested in the show, that any ending would disappoint- after all, the ending on the screen cannot possibly compete with the possibilities people have imagined.
(Yes, I think that there have been flaws this season and last season- from travel times, to pacing, to issues w/r/t characters, but that, for example, this past episode was actually quite good.... it's just unfortunate that the prior episode wasn't very good, and that certain inconsistencies, such as the scorpion/dragon thing, are now pronounced)
