Lets keep in mind that this is not a full breakdown of everything GOT, but more a primer of what has happened and what you need to know moving forward. (Example, the whole Drago storyline and Viserys? Not really needed since that’s a dead thread and everyone involved is dead.)
There are also a ton of minor players who will get their treatment.
Again, keep in mind, David has read the books, and Earl just read them waiting for Season Seven, and don’t be that asshole that spoils the series for no reason but evil glee. What the hell is wrong with you? So if we miss something IN THE SHOW, by all means let us know.
Royal Princess, was dominated by her brother, and was traded for an Army to the Dothraki King, Khal Drogo, who she eventually came to love, but he was killed. On his funeral pyre, she climbed into it with her three Dragon Eggs, and not only survived, but the eggs hatched. She As the series has moved on, the Dragons have gotten bigger and bigger. She’s gained a large Dothraki army, and then lost it, then gained an Unsullied Army, and the Second Sons to it. She’s taken a few cities, and currently sits atop the city of Meereen, but is having problems with the Sons of the Harpy who are resistant to her changes. They have killed quite a few of her Army, including Ser Selmy, who was her main bodyguard and former bodyguard to her father. Daenerys is also having trouble controlling her Dragons, having to lock up her two smaller dragons, but letting the larger one go free, Drogon, but that turns out in her favor, as when the Sons of the Harpy attack, he shows up and saves her, flying away with her.
Jorah and Daario are enroute to find her, and last we saw she was being surrounded by Dothraki horsemen. The Horsemen take her to Vaes Dothrak, a kind of central city/homeland of the Dothraki horde. She drops that she was the wife of Khal Drogo, in a effort to show she has some power, but this backfires as all former wives of Khals get put in an honored tent to die of old age. She’s not putting up with this, and burns the Khals alive surviving by her invulnerability to fire. Taking over the Dothraki, she again rides her Dragon, fully healed back to Meereen just in time to save them in battle with the three major cities of Slaver’s Bay. Burning everything in sight, she forms an alliance with the Greyjoys, gaining a new navy, and sails for Westeros. Sadly, she breaks up with Daario, giving him the control of Mureen as a going away present, as Tyrion advises she may need a marriage alliance to gain the Iron Throne.
David: Dany is of course the odds-on favorite to win the whole shebang.
Let’s face it, she’s got a huge army, got the second-biggest army in Westeros on her side, she’s WANTS the frikken thing, (unlike Jon Snow) so all she really needs to do is beat Cersei, who has an Army that should have been beaten pretty badly by Robb Stark already, as he never lost a battle against them. Considering Dorne, The Vale, and the North are all in revolt, how does she lose? Plus she has Varys and Tyrion, two men who know what they are doing, behind her as well. Plus a blood claim on the Throne! Oh and FRIKKEN DRAGONS.
He started out as a spy for Lord Varys, but started to love Daenerys and while being put back in his place by Daenerys on several occasions, still cares for her, at first this (to me looked) almost like a father / daughter relationship, but since her brother is dead, he seemed to have wanted to move to consort, he’s a bit jealous of the other protector,Ser Barristan Selmy, and he must be much older than Daenerys , or he’s just VERY well traveled. As the Series has moved on, he’s seen more and more people get into Daenerys Targaryen’s circle, from Selmy being another adviser, to Naharis also looking to her bed (but more brazenly) so. Eventually Daenerys found out about how Jorah came to be in her service, and instead of killing him, banished Jorah. Jorah meets up with Tyrion and kidnaps him, thinking that bringing a Lannister to Daenerys would get him back in her good graces, proving his loyalty. On the way back, Jorah and Tyrion get attacked by the Stone Men, and Jorah is infected but no one else knows yet. The Duo get waylaid by slavers soon after and put into the fighting pits that Daenerys just reopened. Jorah and Tyrion go before Daenerys , and Tyrion basically has an interview with her, and Tyrion throws Jorah under the bus. Jorah is given the boot again, and returns to the fighting pits. Eventually he fights again before her, at the same time the Sons of the Harpy attack, and Daenerys is flown off by Drogon, the biggest dragon. Jorah and Daario go in search of her. Jorah again find Daenerys, after she has retaken control of the Dothraki, and she accepted him back into her circle, but commanding him to find a cure for greyscale and come back to her.
David: Love me some Ser FriendZone.
Brave and honest to a fault, and is all screwed due to his wife loving the finer things in life and he had to break the law to keep her happy. Love how almost everyone just gives him a pass on the whole slavery thing. Considering the Extreme Rich can pay enough to cure greyscale, I have no doubt there is a cure, but you would think he would find a cure easier with Dany than without.
