'Game of Thrones' fans loved the Cleganebowl, but not Dany's fiery reign of terror

Spoiler alert! The following contains details from “Game of Thrones” Season 8 Episode 5, "The Bells."

Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) loved inflicting fire and blood on King's Landing in Sunday's episode of "Game of Thrones," but fans of the fantasy HBO series thought she should just chill out. 

In a survey of more than 133,000 "Thrones" fans in Reddit's popular r/gameofthrones community, 86% thought Dany's actions weren't justified when she burned King's Landing to the ground. Only 21% thought this explosive battle was better than Season 6's beloved Battle of the Bastards. 

But fans loved parts of this week's episode, "The Bells," including the much-hyped "Cleganebowl" between the Hound (Rory McCann) and the Mountain (Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson), which led to both of their deaths. The brawl between the brothers was Reddit fans' favorite death scene, and they found it pretty satisfying overall. See the rest of USA TODAY's exclusive look at the results of the survey below.
