I really think people misunderstood Dany and that the show put too much of a rosy glow on her. While she's a typically successful Targaryen conqueror, she's not that great at ruling. We expect the beautiful, wronged young woman to be the hero, but other than freeing the slaves, pretty much everything she's done has been a part of her single-minded ambition. Lots of what she does causes a ton of death and suffering that could have been averted with a more savvy ruler. There are hints all the way through that she has instincts that are very much like her father's. Its not a secret. She's constantly saying things about how intractable she is when it comes to bending the knee to her rule. She's not getting ruined now, its just that the gloves are off.
