New photos of this week’s filming in the Bardenas are popping up, giving us a clearer idea of what’s happening in Game of Thrones season 6. The shooting in Spain involves Emilia Clarke (and another co-star we’ll tuck beneath the cut for spoiler reasons!), and the khalasar first seen at the end of season 5.

Major Spoilers below!

According to Diario de Navarra, sharing info in two articles, Clarke was seen filming at the Bardenas with Michiel Huisman, numerous Dothraki extras, and about 60 horses. There is a Dothraki camp set up nearby.

With Daenerys and Daario reunited, that brings up the question, how does this occur? And where is Jorah, who departed with Daario in season 5? Some have believed him to be riding with the khalasar but I don’t think the evidence is conclusive. And how does Daenerys come into a comfortable position with the khalasar? The photos bring up as many questions as they answer.

Here’s a peek at the Dothraki camp set-up:

And for those feeling sorry for nominee Emilia Clarke, who was unable to make it to the Emmys, don’t worry- she was still able to get her hands on one!

    1. I have a theory that before Dany gets to Westeros she’s going to conceive a child with Daario first so naturally they have to reunite first under cozy circumstances.

    2. Well I don’t think Jorah died, they wouldn’t have invented his greyscale storyline then. He’s probably just somewhere around the dothraki

    3. While somewhat exciting I really hope this story has some pay off…I’m so tired of Dany meandering in Essos; please spice up this plotline!!

    4. Dany has donned ‘Dothraki Leathers’ (I guess the soiled wedding gown was discarded).
      She sure is not in ‘custody’ , in fact looks sort of in charge. Not clear that’s the same Khalasar from season 5.
      We are now missing actors names for a Khal, Khals?, and possible important Dothraki.

    5. Much clearer pictures. Daenerys is certainly leading the Dothraki (dashing the hopes of quite a few here that she would be raped and killed/banished to Dosh Khaleen by the Dothraki. 😉 )
      Could this be Episode 3 or so? Who is the director for 3 and 4? I miss Drogon. Hopefully he is away on food breaks during this sequence.

    6. tomxkhl,

      thats probably exactly why they gave him greyscale – to kill him off. Daario found out and killed him or Dothraki found out and killed him. Obviously just speculation but thats my line of thought.

    7. Wimsey,

      One would guess they have something to do with it, yeah. But we can’t see CGI dragons in a pic, and Daenerys doesn’t have fantastic control of her dragons yet, so there’s still speculation to be had.

      I thought it was Jack Bender, who was spotted in Tudela, Navarre. It wouldn’t be Miguel Sapochnik (9/10), since the Saintfield battle is still filming. That leaves Daniel Sackheim(3/4), Mark Mylod (7/8), and Jeremy Podeswa(1/2), and it sounds like Daniel Sackheim was still in Ireland as of September 12th

      Daniel Sackheim also said recently on Instagram that he’s been Ireland for three months and that he’s in Ireland through the middle of November. I wonder if that means anything for 6×03 and 6×04. https://instagram.com/p/7i9ACpOx2f/?taken-by=dansackheim

      I liked Dany’s Dothraki leathers in Season 1. In these pics, it just looks like she’s wearing a brown version of her blue costume from previous seasons: cap sleeve blue tunic/dress over trousers. You’re going to have to do better than that, wardrobe person replacing Michele Clapton.

      I wonder where they’re headed for. Mereen? Vaes Dothrak? around the dothraki sea claiming other khalasars?

      In the second set of photos , which will be posted today, there seems to be a ‘travel camp’, as if the ‘Khalasar’ is on the way to some place, I am thinking Vaes Dothrak.

      She seems to have more ‘formal’ Dothraki leathers than the shaggy ones she had in S1 and S1, hard to see, but they look ok to me and I like the gloves.

    11. In addition to the tweet spotting Jack Bender in Navarre, Jack Bender tweeted on September 17th about heading off to work on GOT and tweeted a photo of a road sign indicating Barcelona (filming in Navarre was supposed to start shortly after the 17th, I think). I’m pretty sure it’s Bender.

      On August 5th, Miguel Sapochnik tweeted about having “136 days to go” of filming on GOT. That takes us to December 20th, 2015, which I’m guessing is the scheduled date for wrapping filming on Season 6. When someone begged for spoilers for 6×09 and 6×10, Sapochnik tweeted “People die.” LOL

      Maisie Williams made an interesting comment in the Access Hollywood Emmy interview about a “technical hitch” resulting in her finishing filming much, much earlier than predicted. Usually, a technical hitch would result in delayed filming–unless of course they wound up scrapping material they planned to film–so I’m wondering what happened.

      Sue the Fury, I’m so, so curious at your references on Twitter to things that you and Los7Reinos know but can’t reveal. There’s something in Season 6 even more juicy than Arya making it back to the Riverlands, Jon Snow being alive, and a massive Northern battle in 6×09? SO EXCITED OMG. Season 6 is going to be AMAZING.

    12. Are we thinking that Mesa Roldan will also be a Dothraki location, given how the number of extras matches with the number used for filming a scene in NI back in August? The land around Mesa Roldan looks very similar to the Navarre desert, maybe Dany is ascending the Mother of Mts and MR lies at the top?

    13. You’d think Jorah would be close to her. That being said, I don’t think it’s his time yet. I always believed he’d get to Westeros. Then again I thought the same about Barry…

      jentario,

      I still think that’s Ser Arthur Dayne. Plus as a true nerd on this: wrong hair and eye color for Ned 😀 Regardless, I’m super, super excited about this! #MaximumHypeAchieved

      It could have been a technical hitch related to someone else’s storyline causing them to delay that and move some of Maisie’s filming earlier to keep the whole schedule from slipping. Rearranging the filming schedule to work around the problem is much better than simply halting production to wait for it to be resolved.

      Yeah, in this day and age and with the kind of financial backing HBO gives the production, it’s doubtful a “technical hitch” exists that would cause them to just scrap it entirely (especially coming off the recent comment that there’s something bonkers they’ve been planning for years and that they’re finally going to pull off this season). As a friend of mine who has worked in production for decades once told me: If you have enough money, you can do anything in this business.

      I hadn’t thought of that. It’s very possible that Maisie’s filming was moved up as you describe.

      Given that Spain and Northern Ireland are crawling with media–Spain in particular–it’s hard to believe that a hitch in filming so major that it would have caused them to rejigger their extremely precise production schedule would have gone unreported. When they were having problems with filming Cersei’s walk of shame, it was widely reported.

    19. I really hope this image (and that Resident Evil production news) doesn’t mean Jorah is done with the show. Not just one of my favorite characters, but he’s just about the only actor Emilia has any on screen chemistry with.

        Quote  Reply

    20. Casso,

      That’s what I assumed as well. And it remains difficult to deduce which director is filming this scene, simply based on tweets. We know from the production schedule that directors are required to travel between NI and Spain constantly.

    23. Sue the Fury,

      Presumably this is after Daeny has gained her position, given that she is wearing her Formal Dinner Leathers! So, Drogon could well be off elsewhere doing dragon stuff.

      (They might skip the issue, but one “out” to minimize Drogon time would be that a dragon would spook the hell out of horses, so Daeny would want him “out of sight” as much as possible.)

      I should have said less ragged than S1 and S2. Still look Dothraki but not quite like what any other Dothraki wears.
      Where does Dany get consumes? She has a invisible crew of tailors that trail her around ? 🙂

      She wasn’t replaced, she moved on , like Gemma Jackson. Both of them picked up Emmys before they went to other things.

      This is what I’m hoping. Jorah can ride ahead much faster than the slow-moving khalasar. Perhaps Dany orders him to set Rhaegal and Viserion free before their arrival as well.

      Also let’s face it, when given the choice between Ser Friendzone and Daario we know who Dany would choose to stay by her side.

      Filming in Canet de Mar finished last Friday (the 18th), before the Navarre shooting started. There’s no reason why Bender couldn’t do both.

      There’s no sign of the other directors in those pictures, either, and they’re all pretty recognizable. Bender was spotted in Navarre on September 22nd, after the Navarre shooting started. It’s not rocket science.

      I’d be sad if Jorah were gone for good, as well. I did like verbal sparring with Tyrion, although how much more of that we’re likely to see in Season 6 is questionable, if she’s spending all her time with Dothraki. The person I’d really like to see her plotting with is Varys. He’s admired and championed her for so long, he’d go ditzy for a chance to actually interact with her, imo. That would be some chemistry.

      Poor Jorah can’t catch a break in life, can he? I do hope the grayscale hasn’t spread so quickly that Dario put him out of his misery. Maybe he’s on a great errand, or headed back to Meereen to give the crew there news about what’s happened to Dany, telling them to rally the Unsullied and prepare the dragons for travel!

      More likely Darrio would have killed him, did no one else notice the sheer look of disdain that Jorah gave him in the season 5 finale when they left the throne room in search of Dany? Jorah tries to infect him with greyscale, fails, and Dario stabs him..

      Correct, but if he’s spotted in Tudela, than he is quite certainly shooting something in Bardenas Real/Navarra. There’s no other filming sight near it in Spain. The most logical thing after would be Zafra and that’s where Eddie Eyre is heading (because of him landing in Madrid).

      Another thing, I’ve seen a tweet today that the Wolf-unit is filming in Spain, but I thought we saw images of the Targaryen-Dragon on crates elsewhere, which would suggest Dragon-unit. Are both units now in Spain? Than what unit is filming in Saintsfield???

      Those photos aren’t from the new movie.. they’ve JUST begun principle photography .. My guess is it’s all scheduled out .. Ian will film his Game of Thrones scenes and then fly off to Africa ( if need be ) to film for the new Resident Evil .. Game of Thrones has already filmed most of their episodes from what I understand. Only a couple more to go, and Ian likely won’t be appearing in EVERY episode 🙂 so it shouldn’t be considered a sign of anything

      As I said I don’t think we should belive blindly One single person who said he spotted Bender in Tudela with no proof and noone else who saw him. Plus it seems odd to me that every major scene is in ep 5-6 (Baelor temple, Arya’s run, kingsmoot, tarly’s dinner)

      With the greyscale being pretty slow in Season 5, and Season 6 picking up right after, I can’t see it suddenly advancing at a quicker pace. Stone fingers crossed.

      Interesting catch. I just think they’d be foolish to try to recast Sean Bean as a younger actor, unless the resemblance was uncanny. It would be more prudent (less confusing to viewers) to just age him down with makeup and CGI.

    42. M: I thought it was Jack Bender, who was spotted in Tudela, Navarre. It wouldn’t be Miguel Sapochnik (9/10), since the Saintfield battle is still filming. That leaves Daniel Sackheim(3/4), Mark Mylod (7/8), and Jeremy Podeswa(1/2), and it sounds like Daniel Sackheim was still in Ireland as of September 12th

      OK, working that out, it could be Podeswa and Ep. 2. IMO, it’s less likely to be Bender and Ep. 5 or 6, because I doubt D&D will be waffling about in S6, especially with Daenerys, Jon and Tyrion stuff. Also, ep. 2 would mean D&D writing – more preferable for me.

      M: You’re going to have to do better than that, wardrobe person replacing Michele Clapton.

      I liked Clapton’s work as a whole, but as far as Daenerys’ clothes, I am actually quite happy somebody else will be in charge. I found her S6 costumes just….. weird. As also the costumes in general for Meereen and Dorne.

      My guess is that he’ll transmit it to someone…

      Or that even possibly he already infected someone during his time in the pits and there will be talk of a greyscale epidemy in Meereen very soon…

      But if they want to keep it more dramatic and character related, maybe he’ll infect Daario (although I personally doubt it) or someone on the road, or some Dothraki…

      If the main aspect of the greyscale is to infect Westeros on the long run, anyone travelling in Dany’s trail could be infected. We dont necessarly need Jorah who then could die early next season.

      So by episode 2, Dany will be leading a pack of her own Dothraki accompanied by Daario? That’s extremely unlikely.

      As for the person replacing Michele Clapton–as in her successor, I didn’t mean to imply before that Michele Clapton was booted off the production–I imagine the aesthetic will be the same. The costuming we have seen of Arya and the various Girona extras has borne that out. If anything, I would expect that Clapton’s replacement will take FEWER chances and FEWER risks to avoid ruining Clapton’s established esthetic. Thus instead of a different design for Dany’s leathers, we get a brown leather version of the tunic blue dress/pants combo she wore for a good chunk of Season 3 and 4. It’s understandable but disappointing.

      Dany riding with Daario and the Dothraki isn’t a “major” scene. It actually looks like a pretty quiet scene: Dany and Daario talking with the Dothraki warriors at their backs. There’s no big event taking place.

      Tudela is RIGHT next to Bardenas Reales. Peniscola’s way on the other side of Zaragoza, on the coast. If Bender was in Tudela–and there’s no reason to doubt this tweet any more than the many other tweets about cast/crew sightings–it seems extremely probable that the Dany/Daario scene was being filmed by Jack Bender.

    47. M,

      I don’t find it disappointing. I think it more important to keep the general established aesthetic consistent. She will have the opportunity, however, to put her own stamp on the look of Oldtown, and the Reach, in general, given we haven’t seen the Reach, yet.

      I wouldn’t mind if she changed the Sand Snake costumes. Those heavily swathed heads, rough pants and leather straps across their chests didn’t do it for me. Somehow, after reading all the book reader theories of what they should look like, I expected something more … exotic … in both the girls, and their costumes. Not like Arabian girl-knights, from childhood stories, but something … else.

    51. Dutch Maester: Like their costumes in the finale?

      Those dresses in the finale did look pretty on them, and reminded me of the dresses Myrcella wore throughout the season. Those were dress clothes, (betrayal clothes) though. These girls are warriors, but of higher birth, daughters of a prince, even if they are bastards. They showed a sexual, sensual temperament, but their clothes did not. Their tastes would be more refined.

      Perhaps they would keep the leather pants they wore, but of a much finer, thinner, more pliable leather. The things they wore last year looked like heavy rough chaps, that would get in the way, plodding and common, not sleek and sinuous, as “snakes” should be. No heavy head turbans, with the burlap face coverings. Maybe I expected gold cord woven through their hair, or something like that. Probably impractical for warrior girls, but this is fantasy anyway. They would have gold cord and golden hairpins, but those golden hairpins might be weapons of a most lethal kind. Maybe silken tops. Everything they wore looked clunky and chunky and common, what you would expect an infantry soldier to wear, too chunky for graceful snake princesses.

      Nymeria looked, imo, especially gorgeous in the finale, and I’m one who really can’t stand pink.

      Speaking of Bran, I ran across this as I was reading, last night, and it leaped out at me. I had noticed Jon mentioning it before, but this time it really stood out to me. (since it’s from the books, I’ll put it under spoiler code)

      Red eyes, Jon realized, but not like Melisandre’s. He had a weirwood’s eyes. Red eyes, red mouth, white fur. Blood and bone, like a heart three. He belongs to the old gods, this one. And he alone of all the direwolves was white.”

      A girl wonders, where is Jorah? If they brought him back to Dany just to kill him off or something I swear, I swear…I’ll just…I’ll…be impotently angry.

      Whatever is coming for Dany’s story next season, Jorah had better freaking be there.

      Though with his greyscale I am increasingly concerned they are going to turn him into ‘the man who loved too much and ruined everything’.

    55. Kay: I hope we never ever see those head coverings again in the show. Like ever! The Sand Snakes’ non-dress clothes were terrible.

      Their non-dress clothes that they were wearing when introduced were fine. For Tyene and Nym, their outfits were a slightly more overtly feminine version of Dany’s tunic dress/pants combo, which makes sense given that they had to ride to that location. It’s Clapton’s version of Planetos power dressing for ladies: super-feminine fluttery frippery up top paired with action pants and boots. It’s pretty much a Game of Thrones version of the way Olivia Pope from Scandal dresses (pantsuits with very feminine details). I think there was a deliberate contrast between their mode of dress in that scene and in their final scene of the season, since in that scene they’re trying to present themselves as harmless. Otherwise, the Sand Snakes dress for action, just like Dany does.

      I also liked that they actually wore armour for their fight scene. I didn’t mind that it was chunky and “unfeminine,” even though it had the unfortunate molded breastplate. Armour is supposed to be protective, not pretty or sexy.

    56. Nymeria Warrior Queen: Nymeria looked, imo, especially gorgeous in the finale, and I’m one who really can’t stand pink.

      They all looked great in those flowing dresses, as Myrcella did all season. Considering what they did to Myrcella, though, it’s as if the dresses like hers were almost a mockery of her. (she’s eating OUR food, breathing OUR air, etc. etc..so we’re going to kill the little bitch and be done with it.)

      It will be interesting to see how the SS are portrayed this year. I’d rather see more of Doran and Areo Hotah, to be honest, but I’m not trying to start another SS debate. Just talking about their costumes, since the change in costume designer was mentioned.

      Yeah, I had forgotten about those infamous breastplates, though I don’t know how I could have. I was just going by memory, and one of the things I remembered most were the heavy leather straps across their chests. Granted, armor needs to protect, but if they are going to liken themselves to Snakes, something about the way they dress should be more… sinuous. Just sayin …

    60. M: So by episode 2, Dany will be leading a pack of her own Dothraki accompanied by Daario? That’s extremely unlikely.

      Possibly not. If she pulls Drogon on them and makes them hers quickly, then it shouldn’t take more than an episode or so to get Daeny moving back to Meereen. I expect that the book will be doing something similar to that: after all,

      she pulls Drogon on them from the start there.

      I find the idea of revisiting the Riverrun plotline at this point a bit weird, given the complete lack of any mention of them for 2 full seasons, and the way Brienne seemed to act as if the Freys already controlled it in Season 4 (plus, AFFC ended with Riverrun in Lannister control and the Blackfish on the run, which is precisely where Season 3 left him). Granted, this could just be picking up the TWOW story in the Riverlands.

      Where there have been characters associated with the Riverlands cast–the outlaw band, the Meribald figure, etc.–and while all indications are that Jaime is heading back to the Riverlands, I don’t know who all could possibly be at Riverrun except David Bradley (Walder) and that other character who was cast a while back, the doomed one we assumed was a Frey. Tobias Menzies (Edmure) wouldn’t be anywhere in the vicinity, as I thought Outlander is still filming. If Riverrun’s to be a location, it needs to be “staffed” with characters, so unless the outlaw band and Meribald are there–possible, I guess–I don’t know who could be there apart from Walder and the doomed character.

      Simple. Kevan tells Jaime that Blackfish and a group of rebels have re-taken the castle, then sends him to Riverrun. Then we can have the scene between Jaime and Brynden on the bridge (as this set REALLY looks like).

      Yeah I am slightly confused on the status of Riverrun in the show. It is left pretty fuzzy post RW. You mentioned that Brienne acted like the Frey’s already have it. Maybe she was mistaken and the Blackfish holds it somehow.

      Perhaps they’ll do the entire siege including that great discussion between Jaime and Edmure? Would absolutely love to hear the “with a trebuchet” line. Paging Clive Russell and Tobias Menzies..

      Why would the Blackfish come out of hiding just to allow himself to be surrounded?

      That wouldn’t be doing Brienne any favours in the IQ department, though granted that line is from a conversation where Brienne was completely unaware that Sansa’s aunt was the regent of the Vale.

      In that link I just posted we can spot emilia wearing that same gown (or what remains of it) from the season 5 finale.

      If Daenerys is still wearing the remnants of that gown, these shots you linked have to be from Episode 1. The khaalasar seems large, exactly as we saw in the S5 finale. I assume directors shoot all their segments in one location in one go, so the earlier pictures of her and Jorah could be from episode 2 or perhaps 3/4 if another director has finished already.

      Iain Glen is probably one of the cast members who works most on multiple projects and series throughout the year (on stage, in the new Cleverman series, Jack Taylor, Downton Abbey, etc.) I don’t expect it means anything. 🙂

      It’s possible she could develop chemistry with Tyrion, but it’s hard to judge based really on two scenes (they barely interacted in the Daznak pit). I find Missandei boring, but that might just be me.

      If I seriously tried to make sense of the plots of those films (or anything else in them for that matter), my brain would probably explode.

      Like this terrible scene where Alice for some reason never thinks to simply kneel down and grab the machete and just stomps the conveniently loose floorboard instead.

      Hey, I wonder if that’s actually Jorah in those movies, just sent to the future somehow (it could be why he’s missing from the set photos!) and using an alias. He could certainly pass for a heavily mutated Stone Man there. Maybe it’s how the zombie apocalypse in those movies really started.

    80. So, looking at all the pictures, when in the season would you say these scenes take place? Dany is in control here, or at least she is free. And we’ll see Vaes Dothrak again. So does she take control of the Khalesar that captures her and then she goes to Vaes Dothrak? Or does she take control of them all in Vaes Dothrak itself, and in these scenes she is returning to Meereen?

      I wonder how Vaes Dothrak will look like. Last time we saw all of it, very briefly, it looked like this. That was season one; a static matte painting was all the show could do back then. I’m excited to see what they do in season six.

    81. Karolyne: Vaes Dothrak

      Seems so , tho it’s hard to make out. This whole scene seems to be a rehearsal since all the camera equipment is still in the productions tents. This does seem to be before the other scenes were she has changed into Dothraki ‘leathers’.
      Dany seems to be talking to a (I guess) Khal. Are we ever going to get a name of a Dothraki actor? It also seems Darrio and Jorah have not found her yet.
      On the other hand Dany is not a captive and something is going on.
      Also this seems to be a ‘field’ encampment , on the road to Vaes Dothrak?

      But why bother with all of that when they can just skip to what Blackfish is doing in Winter, assuming that he is doing anything of interest, which he very well might not be? That stuff was written for the Crows/Dragons story, not the Winter story, and it’s improbable that it will contribute much to Jaime’s part of the Winter story (again, whatever that is).

    83. Marcus: Yeah like Brienne from the books is the shining example of ingenious,

      Actually, I would conside Book!Brienne to be moderately intelligent, but plagued by doubts about her intelligence. However, what really makes her look dumb is that she is ingenuous: that makes her very blunt (and totally tactless), but also so focused on her immediate tasks that she takes everything at face value. She does not joke around, and she is always slow to realize that many other people are always joking around.

      Show!Brienne has been much sharper than has Book!Brienne, but, again, that was necessary for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that an accurate portrayal of Book!Brienne might be indistinguishable from really bad acting.

      Luka Nieto: So does she take control of the Khalesar that captures her and then she goes to Vaes Dothrak?

      I do not understand why they would waste time going to Vaes Dothrak. It seems implausible that she will be doing this in the book: there

      Drogon is with her, and although he is not quite as bonded to Daeny as Show!Drogon is, he still seems to feel that she is his in some way.

      So, why not just have them try to take her, have Drogon eat Khal Bongo, then have the Dothraki who can master their horses enough to stick around submit to Daeny, round up the rest of the Khalassar and then head back to Meereen (meeting Jorah & Daario along the way). Voila! Instand cavalry for whatever the Harpies are doing to Tyrion.

    84. Wimsey,

      I always wondered that, many people speculate that she will go to Vaes Dothrak, too unite all the Dothraki.
      There is some proof for this. The dosh khaleen wrongly calling Rhaego the stalion who mounts the world, when in truth Dany is the stalion.

      Or in the the 2nd book

      Dany seeing a vision of the Dosh khaleen kneeling before her, in Qarth.

      But I’ve always wondered, why would she go to Vaes Dothrak, when her friends/people are in danger in Mareen. Even more so in the books.

        Quote  Reply

    85. Wimsey,

      They are building a Vaes Dothrak set in Almería. And in the House of the Undying sequence of the books, Dany sees the Dosh khaleen crones bowing to her. So yeah, she’s going to Vaes Dothrak.

      Mihnea,

      She’s probably taken to Vaes Dothrak, and there she takes control of the Dothraki. If, however, she already has control of the khalesar that captured her and she goes willingly to Vaes Dothrak, maybe it’s for a bigger army.

      Yeah, I don’t think that Dany will go back to Meereen. She’s done with that segment (while the city moves toward chaos). But I also don’t think that the Dothraki will ever go to Westeros.

    87. Mihnea,

      Drogon is not at her side in the show. Not yet, anyway.

      The point is, regardless of circumstances, she is going to Vaes Dothrak. At least, in the show she is! Unless they are making up another Dothraki city, it’s gotta be Vaes Dothrak, as they are building one in Almería, comprising of a temple and more than a dozen buildings surrounding it.

    88. Hodor’s Bastard,

      Disagree on both accounts. I think Dany will go from Vaes Dothrak to Meereen with a Dothraki army, wrap things up in Slaver’s Bay and leave it behind, head west to Volantis and then Westeros. As for the Dothraki, the fact that they have never crossed the Narrow Sea has been set up enough that it’s just gotta happen. Dany will be the first to make them cross, I’m sure of it.

      Yeah, it’s definitely a minority opinion…but I think the Dothraki in KL is a ridiculous scenario. The indigenous folk won’t like that one bit. Where will they feel comfortable? Dorne? It will be never ending rebellion. Plus, once they see and feel snow, the Dothraki will utter “fuk dat” in dothraki and willingly swim (dog paddle) back to Essos.

      Seriously, the obvious “conflict” you mention is an interesting take on it, but for some reason one of the “bittersweet” aspects of this story may be that Dany will never be another Aegon I (or Aegon V “Egg”).

      Looking at her clothes in the second set of pictures, I believe Daenerys meets the Dothraki, talks to a Khal (perhaps with a Drogon sighting or two close by) and is somewhat in charge in Episode 1. Next D&J find her (Episode 2?). She probably sends J back to Meereen to give them news of her and D and she take the Khalasar to VD to unite all the Dothraki. I don’t think she will be ever NOT in control of the Dothraki; Drogon is very close by, and even with his napping tendencies, when he sees the possibility of all that food nearby (nice plump horses) plus her in somewhat of danger, it’s very odd to imagine SHOW-Drogon not immediately coming to give everyone a glimpse of him. Even circling just overhead and then swooping down to grab a horse and rider. I mean Drogon even came to check on her in 5.02 after Mossador’s execution.

      Hodor’s Bastard: but for some reason one of the “bittersweet” aspects of this story may be that Dany will never be another Aegon I

      I don’t think there will be an Aegon 1, ever. The bittersweet probably refers to the end of one way of life and the start of another, just like it has happened on earth many times, and regularized, but boring, seasons like we have. 😀

    93. Kay: and regularized, but boring, seasons like we have. ?

      Hey..I like Fall! Not boring, especially the colors and watching all the leaves committing suicide. 🙂

      Yeah…although Dany will never be another Aegon I (the Conqueror), I have high hopes for her air force intimidation and possible alliances. Will Drogon ever be another Balerion or Vhagar?

      But the Unsullied and Dothraki….I’ve often thought of how the Dothraki and Unsullied would integrate in Westeros. Would they replace the Kingsguard and City Watch? Would the Unsullied go to the wall? Would they “forcibly” integrate in the Dornish climate? I have no idea. I think once Dany arrives via air force and with good advisors, she may not need a foreign army.
