Would have saved a lot of complaining if they just killed Viserion this episode IMO.
I quite liked the idea put forth earlier by Baldur; have Dany/Drogon take down the scorpions and some low level burning of enemy troops on the ground. Cersei rings the bells, then Dany/Drogon, sitting and watching things percolate, take flight and head straight for the Red Keep, incinerating Cersei (and Jaime) and sending it crashing to the earth... inadvertently setting off a cascade of wildfire from Aerys’ reign which results in the deaths of a great many innocent civilians. Show the response on the ground and not from Dany.
You could enter the last episode with Dany having overstepped the mark and having been responsible for, a) the deaths of Cersei and Jaime despite their surrender, and b) by extension the massive loss of life of the people of KL. It wouldn’t be clear whether she knew about the wildfire (you could even have had Tyrion warn her about it earlier) and whether this was part of her design... and there would be more reason to question which side the coin had fallen on leading into the finale. Plus, if she must go that way, the hatred of the people she would now have earnt would be added justification.
