the average IQ of the audience for this show seriously must be in the low 90s. The progeny of a famously insane family might turn out to be insane herself with blatantly obvious foreshadowing every fucking season?? totally unexpected!
lets also review the setup in the immediately prior episodes just to make clear how obvious it was something like this might happen:
QueenyBmad has significant personal losses as a result of her conflict with QueenBsuckingmybrothersdick, including two of her "children"
QueenyBmad expected adoration, love and worship from the populace, instead was greeted as a new ruler with reluctance and suspicion
QueenyBmad is jealous that the populace loves her beta lapdog more and maybe perceives him as the real ruler
QueenyBmad is becoming increasingly irrational, hot headed and ignoring the advises of her counsel
QueenyBmad grows paranoid about treasonous intentions among her close allies, suspects a power play. Demands undying fealty like an insecure controlling girlfriend from her beta lapdog who is suitably bewildered because hes already proven his loyalty and risked his life for her many times.
maybe theres a reason TV writers dont even try; the bulk of the audience is so fucking dumb they get taken by surprise by their own shadows.
