    Well, according to the show Xaro became king exactly this way, he didn't even have a dozen soldiers that Danny has. But really it is all nonsense and nothing that happened in the Show in Qarth was logical.

    Well, in the show it is because she is an idiot, who is manipulated by Jorah to go to westeros with just one ship and dozen Dothraki. They will find some reason for her to go to Slave Cities instead of Westeros next season.

    I don't think everyone who criticizes aspects of the show here hates the show. What most people say is that show falls short compared to the books. Certainly many merely good or mediocre shows are also watchable. ;)

    If you look at visions and prophecies together, you'll see that they are actually very important in Dany's story. A big part of Dany's personal changes are a result of the 3 betrayals prophecy. While show runners might expect people to believe Danny's later paranoia toward those around her is because of Xaro's acts, it will fall flat for most viewers. Note that they had some visions in HOTU. For non book readers it would have made no difference if those visions were prophetic. Already many of them are wondering about symbolism and prophecy in those visions. A bigger problem is that by downplaying Quaithe and HOTU they are making Dany's story less and less connected to Westeros story. In the books there is a sense of mystery about Targaryan history and possible relation to PTWP, AA and events beyond the wall. Here the best you can say is probably some day dragons will fight White Walkers. There is even less reason to get invested in show Dany's story, because there is absolutely no connection to possible future events in westerns other than she just moving there.
