i fart in your general direction

Not just alone. Betrayed (in her mind). Threatened. She said so. You expect her to act like you would for some reason. Not a volatile Targaryen.I expect her to stay in character unless given reason to believe otherwise. Being alone is insufficient. She was alone for the first few seasons and won her following.
Being sads and mads and upset with people standing in the way of her rule is insufficient.
She had people on her side already looking to supplant her rule (Varys et al), others refusing to bend the knee (Sansa/North), advisers consistently failing/betraying her, and someone with a better claim to the throne.
She was as vulnerable as she's been in a long time. Volatile people lash out when vulnerable.
Didn't you notice how, people were questioning what kind of queen she'd be for a while now? Whether through words or looks. They clearly noticed something off.
