So Dany is going to get out there and fight? That was the message, again; that leaders have to lead, not just give orders. She’s the Queen that has to be chosen, not just inflicted on the realm.
Regarding tactics; I really don’t know what the best use of a combat dragon is? What are the tactics? I guess the basics of using air power on ground forces applies pretty well?
As for the Lannister army’s reaction, I think they did remarkably well under the circumstances!
Personally, I’d have wanted to be wearing brown trousers that day! But then I’m not a professional soldier and I’m not a sellsword and I’m certainly not Jamie Lannister.
I think this IS how you show what they can do, to people who have never seen one. You use them to kill a lot of your enemies, but you don’t go in for wholesale collateral damage.
I wonder how Jame is going to react when they fish him out of the river? He was affected by the attack, but he kept going despite that, but he also stared into the literal jaws of death.
I agree that a lot of Dothraki died just because they’re Dothraki and this sort of thing is what they live for.
The rest of episode?
Yes, Bran is soooooo spaced out it’s annoying the hell out of me, but his moment quoting Littlefinger back at him was good.
Arya is still immature. Sparring with Brienne for the thrill of it, and in full view of everyone. Even if Littlefinger hadn’t been there, he’d have heard about it. He now knows something about Arya that she’d have done better to keep a secret.
And now Theon’s back, lets see where that goes?
