Strive for Five

It was stored up wildfire. The Mad King stashed it in a bunch of random buildings throughout the city; they talked about that a few seasons ago.I figured that because I saw the green explosions going off around the city
And Dany was burning buildings. Until one of the shows writers says that was just stored up
Green explosives from another situation, I’m gonna view it as Cersei rigging the city with explosives and planning on igniting those explosives after pretending to surrender. She’s done it before. I’m also gonna give Dany the benefit of the doubt and I think she knew that Cersei had something up her sleeve. The Peaceful resolutions that Tyrion and the rest of team came up with never worked with Cersei.
And in that scene where Qyburn was telling Cersei it was time to run, she kept trying to come up with ways they would still win ("our scorpions will shoot down her dragon") and Qyburn told her they were all destroyed, you could tell by the look on her face that she knew they were done. She even let out a single tear. Why would she do that if their big plan was to set off a bunch of wildfire to destroy her enemies? And even if that was their plan, it wasn't a very good one since it didn't do a damn thing to stop Dany or Drogon.
