How many more of those completely pointless Dany chapters?
All the chapters so far could have been summarized in half a chapter.
Well, be that as it may, I'm surprised at the things some people have written in this thread.
Dany needs to be around her dragons? Who says? Everybody knows Dragons can be dangerous (they killed a CHILD), but nobody around Dany knows the first thing about training them. While I don't know whether chaining them up is the best idea, let them roam free certainly didn't prove to be the better one.
Then, what is all that clichéd "Daario seems nasty, so he must have killed Ben, because that one is nice" stuff? I think this series has shown us often enough how deceiving appearances can be. It's possible it happened that way, but it's also possible it happened the way Daario tells it. Heck, it might be that both Ben and Daario will betray Dany. What's worse though is how stupid Dany seems to be in trusting Daario so blindly. "Ben betrayed me, so you obviously must be loyal!" ... wtf. She puts too much weight on those prophecies that are much too vague. Sellswords shouldn't be trusted, that's why they're sellswords. And that finally scene was just way too cheesy.
And while I agree that Dany has to learn that she cannot save everybody, I find it very disturbing that so many hear do not flinch at suggesting she should leave everyone behind and just stop caring. That's exactly not the point of her rule, and AFFC should have shown us more than enough how the people suffer when their lords and ladies forget about them.
Glad that Quentyn has been mentioned. Now maybe finally something is going to happen.
