Definitely a Dany chapter. Probably Dany "acquiring" the help of the Khalassar and talking it back to Meereen.

Exactly right. I don't see why she needs either of them anyway . The victor taking the Khalassar is Dothraki custom isn't it? She could easily kill both and then the Khalassar would follow her no problem.

Wasn't there a problem with someone being killed in the TV series (one of the future Khal's, I think Mago?) and GRRM mentioning that he will be an annoyance to Dany at some point. Would make sense if she roasts Jhaqo and keeps Mago around for a while

Hmmm....you talking about the 1st season? The dude that Jorah killed when he tried to get in Drogo's tent? I know that dude was one of his bloodriders but I didn't think that was Jhaqo. Even if it was Jhaqo who died, the show could just use a different Khal (Pono) for the leader of the khalasar that she sees at the end of ADWD.
Or in the 2nd season? When Dany sent out her bloodriders when they were in the Red Waste? That was Rakharo who died (only his head returned) and that was courtesy of some Khal, can't remember which one. Maybe Pono?
In season one Mago is killed by Drogo in a fight scene thought up by Jason Mamoa. GRRM was using this as an example to illustrate the fact that D&D have the final say in what happens and what goes in. But I guess they could easily rectify this.

Victarion is a key player here. He's sailing hard for Mereen and I believe he has the dragon horn with him if I recall, which would give Dany command over the dragons completely as it says in Dance that dragons of the past were controlled with magic or magical items, that wasn't mentioned for nothing. GRRM never throws anything in for nothing.
We don't really know whether the horn works though. It's been theorized before in more than a few that the horn is either fake or that Euron is hiding somewhere among Victarion's fleet which would throw another name into the mix.
The way I see it happening is this. Victation gets there. The Windblown turn sides thanks to Selmy's new-found love for the game of thrones.Tyrion somehow convinces Brown Ben Plumm to do the same. These three forces fight off what remains of the other sellsword companies and the Yunkai.
Dany after some roasting and some "I am the mother of dragons" PR gets a sizable army of Dothraki and comes back to Meereen to meet one of the craziest situations we've had in the series. From there I suspect some politicking and dragon feeding will commence.
