Dear GoT Round Table organisers: PLEASE for the love of the 7 gods, next your get at least one person who knows what they're talking about.
I usually enjoy reading TVF Round Tables but the GoT ones are painful to read. Both questions and answers just scream "I don't have a clue of what I'm talking about". This is not a book/TV thing. If those guys where at least fans of either, they would know more... The Dothraki we've seen were one band of freaking Dothraki, they were never hers and there's no necessary indication they know her. There are hundreds of bands of Dothraki roaming around in Essos. She was the Khaleesi of one of them, that's it.
So far, she's no one to them. They might have heard of her but they don't necessarily have any relation to her. As we find out later (and in the books) some of them do, but that's a topic for spoilerville.

"Let's start with the closing scene that shocked all non-book readers. Is Jon Snow really dead?
-Doug: I do. It seems rare that George R. R. Martin would put in a switch like this and make him come alive again." There's someone who's apparently never read a word written by George R. R. Martin...
He does the whole Schroedinger dead/undead thing ALL. THE. TIME.

Amanda: (...) Both characters are highly intelligent (...)
Hank: (..) I loved Dany's line "I'm not going to stop the wheel. I'm going to break the wheel."
______ How is Dany intelligent? She's basically a young girl playing at war with no experience whatsover about what she's doing, who's ignoring her advisors for some kinky time with Daario and doesn't understand the importance of her only real asset (dragons, which she cares bollocks about, or else she would realize that chaining them up and never coming to visit isn't exactly the way to recreate that motherly bond) And Hank's quote only further illustrates my rant. That is one empty phrase. I'd be interested in seeing Tyrion ask her what exactly she meant by that and how she would go about it. She would probaby go cry in some corner because of realizing how little actual sense it made....
