    Plausible. In the books Drogon is with her so I don't see them taking her unwillingly or face being toasted. I see her agreeing to go with them mainly because she is stranded, needs help and Drogon is still untamed. Probably sees an opportunity to try at get more allies too if she can convince them to join her. So in the books I see her going back with them and possibly uniting the khalassars. However,if the show only had 2 more seasons left that is a lot to do. Go to the Dorhraki city, go back to Mereen and collect the rest of her people, sail the seas and FINALLY get to westeros. The show has to get her to Westeros soon by mid next season I would think?

    It would be nice if they finally showed her taking charge again and not the helpless damsel in distress as of late. My fiance is just now getting into the show and is on season 3. When sailing to astapor, her and Jorah were taking (can't recall the exact context) but he says how the Dorhraki respect power/strength? above all else which I think could have been some forshadowing. I think she is meant to lead a mighty khalassar (sp?). Drogon should have been with her when the Dorhraki came, seeing them together would have made them in awe/fear and gave her the upper hand. So idk what the show intends. Hopefully Drogon makes an appearance and she kills the khal somehow and takes over. Better not be Jorah and dario to the rescue.

    Well the show is not going the way of BB imo (that's the only one I've seen that you mentioned) They are not taking the time to set things up... it is clear from here out it's full steam ahead. Early in her transformation? It's done. The show wasted so much time on her doing nothing and then they jump her to the Mercy parallel plot. In the book that seems to show her time in Bravos is wrapping up. The one chance they had this season to show her training was totally scrapped for the Trant execution instead. Why show her still at the beginning stages of her training next season? With supposedly only 2 seasons left she has to start moving into position of the end game for her arc. I hope they are able to do what you are saying but seeing what they've done to all the other characters I dont have much faith, instead i forsee bad ass Arya exacts revenge on those that deserve it. Some people (like my fiance) are ok with just action, I need depth and character building as well. That is why many do complain about the show these days, the soul of these characters and the overall story is being butchered. I enjoy the journey more than the destination. This is a great story that does not need to be changed (improved upon...Idk how anyone can say that). Yes it needs to be tweeked, consolidated for tv, but My God tell the same story.

    I take this as the thread for those that have read the book and watch the show to be able to discuss both. Opposite opinions are fair game, but some people do take it too far (both sides). Isn't the positive nitpick thread for those of you that find it blasphemous to seriously critisize the show, just as us rant and ravers have our safe place?

    I disagree. Trant is an a-hole but for all we know is that he is following orders. To him maybe he felt he had no choice but to beat Sansa and kill (?) Syrio. It felt like the show had to make him worse for the murder to be more shocking or understandable. That's besides the point. This is about Arya's development of becoming a single minded,cold, calculating,ruthless assassin. Not about hurray! Arya killed some really despicable person that deserved to die. I think that actually detracts to what she is becoming and also detracts from why she killed him. Most people are like "yay that pedo beating prick got his" instead of "for Syrio!". It's also supposed to be sad about what she is becoming.

    OMG why am I watching this!? I really hope they don't spoil what becomes of Jon and Benjen. Damn me for being so weak willed. Here we go...

    Oh I am not a big fan of Stannis either, but I respect his character.

    Well Stannis to me is the embodiment of duty. That's is how his character is defined to me. It just doesn't sit right with me that he'd be ok with killing his daughter to get to WF. I could accept it if he did it to save the Realm. Just don't get why some can accept so easily how this went down, not that it went down. Now you can argue both ways who should sit the IT. The Baratheons got the throne by right of conquest. The Targs by birthright. I can go both ways on this.

    I feel that some of you do not get Stannis. He knows joffrey and his siblings are bastards,hence not the heirs to the throne. So by rights the kingship goes to Stannis. He is just doing as the laws suggest he should do. Renly had no right to declare for the crown since he was the younger brother. What I'm trying to get across is that Stannis is doing his duty, not that he just wants to be King. So no like you said that is not just who Stannis is... just killing family members because he selfishly wants to be king. I highly doubt Stannis gives the order or just let's it happen. Like multiple people have said Stannis and Shireen are leagues apart. It makes more sense that Mel and Selyse take matters into their own hands. It had also been pointed out that Stannis explicitly states to appoint Shireen as queen should he die. Even if Stannis is involved at least Grrm will give a better reason than the show gave. And what I gather is that D&D just knew that she got burned.

    Dorne is important if you have Arianne and Quentin. Aegon & Co are not on there way. No rep of Dorne has met with Dany... so her going there isn't 100% certain. They felt only that Doran and the Sandsnakes were important and their mission ultimately takes them to KL and Oldtown. A counsel seat is open at KL so they could have just shown up there and been introduced. And if Dany does show up in Dorne Doran could just use LF's jet pack to get back in time.

    That's a good point, especially for the unsullied, it looks like they are just humiliating shaming female characters. Besides theon and loras have any male characters been shamed sexually? I really don't retain the show details as well. Also with cersie you are supposed to feel sorry for her (in a way at least) after the walk. Wonder how they will pull it off.

    Just wanted to add my 2 cents for what it's worth: The city (HA!) of Dorne: At least what we can all agree on, from what I gather, is the Dorne storyline is pointless which is a shame. With all the sputterings of but "weeee only have 10 episodes to show stuff, so we have to cut, consolidate the story!" is moot when they make up these irrelevant story arcs. Seriously there was so much going on in the riverlands. Ok it was boring to some of you, well they could have spiced it up but kept some semblance of the original story alive. Arya: Gosh, I liked seeing the HoBaW but gees get on with her story. Or at least explain what the heck is going on to the unsullied, because there seems to be much confusion and therefor lack of interest in her story. How many episodes do we need to see her cleaning the floors? This is where you appropriately hasten a characters story. One episode to explain the faceless men, give up her possessions then, bang off you go.... prove you want to be a FM by becoming cat of the canals or any of her other personas to see if she has potential. I would love to see her about in bravos. Oh, and how I wish Sam & Co were on their way, good stuff and it would alleviate her character being so isolated from the rest of the story. hmmm maybe next season. KL: Sad really, would really just be reiterating other's sentiment. Why not stick with the original plot it was so good! Everything just, everything is wrong there. Tyrion and Jorah: meh, get to Dany already. Even if you didn't like the Aegon twist, there was good storytelling and scenes in it. This is pointless wanderings that book haters (since you call us show haters) complain about that takes up more important time from other characters. Winterfell: Oh how I dread this whole storyline. I don't care what all you book haters say, IT MAKES NO SENSE FOR HER TO BE THERE! Regardless of the books, it doesn't make sense for her to be there even in the TV world. But alas she's there. Tell me if i'm wrong, but what happens next? Her escape/rescue right? So unless she kills father and/or son before she flees to Stannis or winterfell what was the point of her marriage and subsequent rape? If she is just going to flee winterfell immediately how did she get her revenge by being there....when she should have just gone to Stannis or Jon or stayed in the Vale and gathered northern forces to take back her home. Also at this point they were trying to show that Sansa was becoming more empowered and not the naive, stupid little girl. Psssh, I don't care what anyone tells me. I'd be like, so they killed some of my family members and then stole my home and you want me to marry into their family. YOU F'ING OUT OF YOUR MIND! Uh yeah, let me hear plan B please.
