Dany's actions in Essos were justified. Essos was rife with slavery and wholesale pillaging. She put no effort whatsoever into establishing a post-slavery economy however, and Daario is probably presiding over a city of starving peasants. She did just enough to gain the loyalty of two armies, one of which has an uncomfortable propensity for slaughter and rape. Dany didn't stamp that out, she demanded they begin a tradition of forced marriage. She smiled all throughout the various Dothraki speeches about what they would do when they got to Westeros. She could have stayed and stabilized a continent with no means to keep its people fed, but she didn't. She got what she needed, Essos be damned. Maybe she thought the people who really needed weren't important enough to be ruled. She wanted the shiny continent across the sea. So she went there and began roasting anyone who wouldn't show her loyalty. The Tarly family is a perfect example. She enters a conflict she knows nothing about and begins burning and trampling an army that is accustomed to honorable field combat. They're commanded to respect her despite the fact that she fights like a coward on her dragon and thinks it makes her powerful. Then she looks down her nose at them and just says "Bend the knee." No explanation of the consequences for the preceding battle, just a demand that they humiliate themselves, betray their loyalties, and dishonor everyone who just died. The screenshot you posted on the forum raises an important point... "From her perspective she's not acting insane in any way." This is because she is accustomed to the inhuman manner of Essos. Westeros has strife, but nothing beyond the extent of conventional warfare and political maneuvers. She goes on to help the north against the white walkers. There, she contributes in the battle honorably. What follows is more evidence that her deeds are intended to build her army and nothing more. She becomes insecure and starts subjugating anyone she thinks the people may prefer on the throne. Gendry is given Storm's End as a subtle compromise for his hereditary claim to the throne. She approaches Sansa with a predatory false pretense of friendship on the condition that she obey her in the future without question. She sees the North's bannermen celebrating with Jon snow and becomes jealous... She doesn't understand that they've all witnessed his mercy, sacrifice, and selflessness, all she sees is a threat to her claim. She's contending with a man who both has a hereditary claim and the love of his people. She could accept his rule of Westeros and accept that the Targaryen birthright has been fulfilled but it's not about justice or peace or family... It's about her. Even if nobody wants her, it has to be Dany. You can see on her face at times that she confronts herself with this and lays down that smokescreen of "ONLY I CAN BE A RIGHTEOUS RULER." So if she has to burn everyone in Westeros to achieve that and replace them with Unsullied vegetables who never question her, so be it. The events at Red Keep are the perfect opportunity to wipe them all out. All of her enemies are in the same place, even if they don't know they're her enemies yet.

"Bend the knee..." Nobody talks to their subjects like that but Joffrey and everyone hated Joffrey.
