From a convenient storytelling perspective he does nicely check the "breaking of the wheel" mold in ways others couldn't have, namely the inability to leave an heir.
They could have (theoretically) had a full season of interesting TV between dany destroying King's Landing and the final resolution of Bran being installed. It was just way too rushed. If ol' Georgie ever finishes the books, I'll be very interested to see how he handles the end and if he can make it work with the extra time and page count.
They would have had to introduce some extra characters earlier to really make it compelling though. Like I cared very little even about Ellaria Sand. And I'm suppposed to care about this Martel prince?
Yeah, probably. I mean, at this point, it's all fan fic, but the existing characters realizing Dany was a nutjob and trying to figure out what to do about it and how to fix it offers a lot of story possibilities. Whatever, i hated the end, nothing to do about it now.
