That's fine. Just would have been cool to see them wreck shop the first time after they sail over before the weather plays more of a factor as they move further north.

They aren't wrecking Westeros armies. They aren't built for it. They'd need the dragons for that.

The Unsullied perhaps would be more effective against armoured knights, but he Dothraki just don't think operate that way. We saw that way back in Season 1 when Drogo's bloodriders tried to take on Jorah while he was in armour...they don't really know how to fight opponents in full plate armour.

If they're mean to be based off of the Mongols, then they should have not much trouble taking on a pseudo-Medieval army. For example.

It does when the other side has as many soldiers, as many horses, castles, armor, archers, wildfire, etc.

Lol well good thing the Lannisters don't have those numbers.

Dothraki also have archers. and horses.

the wildfire is gone. it was used.

It's ok to be wrong.

It'd be incredibly underwhelming, and poor writing, to build them up only to get wrecked right away. Heck I'm already having trouble buying Euron's mystical plot-powered, surprise night attack that instantly wrecks a big chunk of Dany's fleet.

The writers must be careful that it doesn't come across as them essentially going "well we gave Dany pretty much every advantage, so we have to make it seem like Cersei at least has a prayer of winning, so lets start slaughtering Dany's forces" and put no further logical thought into it but that.

They've explained on the show and in the books that the Dothraki have no real discipline when it comes to warfare. They don't wear protective armour, so that means you're probably going to get a lot of casualties from enemy archers alone, plus they have no piercing weapons, only curved Arakhs, short-bows, and whips. None of these would really be especially effective against even a modestly skilled and equiped knight, like we saw with Jorah in Season 1. They have no real tactics either, other than to charge at a foe and expect them to break formation and run where they can cut them down from horseback. Even something like Ramsay's force at the Battle of the Bastards would be able to seriously **** up a large number of Dothraki.

The biggest threat the Dothraki pose is their predilection towards raping and pillaging, which would be devastating and an asset in the hands of a ruthless leader, but Dany is specifically going out of her way to not cause utter devastation and alienate the local Westerosi that she hopes to one day rule. With that aspect out of the way, the Dothraki are really just glorified light cavalry that any season military leader and a half-decent Westerosi army could deal with. Randyll Tarly for instance could probably defeat them in a straight fight.

It's been said Dothraki can survive nuclear weapons.

We're close to an arrest, suspect is of middle eastern descent, a "Khal Drogo" I'm told.

Hm. A death that plays out off-screen and when we cut to black. I'm skeptical, but okay. I'll buy the poison for now.

As soon as Jamie poured that wine I knew exactly how that would play out but that doesn't make it any less satisfying, lol. Of course she'd get that last word in, haha.

Bran got weird. Ok.

I'm glad to see that Danaerys isn't steamrolling her way through the Seven Kingdoms.

Lady Olenna had me crying at the end and cheering all at the same time. A true Queen.

Damn this was another good episode! All that Dany/John was sooo good along with another Stark reunion and Varys/Melissandre.

I figured on the wine as well, though I thought he might have done it secretly.
