Yeah I thought Jorah was the one bodyguard Dany would always have or be allowed anywhere.
That scene is a condensing of the several requests she makes for ships in the novel...
Last episode it looked as if she was going to wait for Jorah to find her a ship.
Now Dany's Qarth story needed some jazzing up ... but we have had very loose sequence planning in this episode.
The one at Harrenhal being the other. According to the listings D&D and George write the rest of the episodes.
(Tho D&D have had a kind of 'loose eye' on supervising the two Taylor has written.)
It may be that Jorah was sending his letters to Varys. I remember how shocked I was to find out how long he continued as a spy. Most assumed it ended with the poison whine incident (as I did) and this may be the first hint the show has dropped that shows that his spying is continuing.

Hmmm, if I had something really valuable, would I:
a) Leave them on the estate of the richest man in the city, behind his security or:
Carry them with me to the estate of someone who may steal them and put myself completely in his power with only three other people to help.
Perhaps Xaro and Dany underestimated the security needs, but traveling with her dragons is ten times dumber than keeping them at Xaro's. Do you carry every dollar you have in your wallet?
No no no, you miss the point. Whoever stole the dragons (assumed the warlocks) would NEVER return them. They would either beef up security or get out of the area and hide. Dany would not be allowed to recover them. Dragons are infinitely valuable, since they are the only ones and may be the only ones to ever exist again. I am not blaming Dany's security, I am blaming the writing. We all know she is going to recover her dragons, but that would never be allowed to happen.
