First i went to Astapor. Those who were slaves in Astapor now stand behind me, free. Next I went to Yunkai. Those who were slaves in Yunkai now stand behind me, free. Now I have come to Meereen. I am not your enemy. Your enemy is behind you. Your enemy steals and murders your children. Your enemy has nothing for you but chains and suffering and commands. I do not bring you commands. I bring you a choice. And I bring your enemies what they deserve.

the fact that i was misled by this week’s title aside i’m really excited for dany in the next couple of episodes cuz i feel like 1 of many elements that the show is missing (because i guess you can’t get all the introspective in a tv show that you can with a novel) is the constant sense of vulnerability and like blunders that come with being a young person with absolutely no experience in a position of power. in the books she does doubt herself (which you couldn’t really tell from the show) and she is very young and this is something you don’t forget, so i think setting her up as ultra confident every step of the way was a mistake on the show’s part because now when she inevitably starts realizing that ruling and stabilizing a city-state are different (and 100x more difficult) things than conquering one, it’s going to seem like omfg she’s so dumb and too arrogant and power-hungry!!! when she was a young girl throughout the entire thing and she still is a young girl with few trusted advisers and stuck between so many conflicting interests, and incredibly idealistic in a ~gritty fantasy world~ so really all of this was to be expected anyway….
but yeah regardless im excited for this section of her storyline it’s bound to be really interesting and i hope people aren’t like “she used to be so badass what happened” because her storyline was never meant to be straightforward like kicks-ass-frees-the-slaves-and-everything-is-awesome anyway..
oh and its so much better that they made the slaves not uniformly brown (like is truer to the books and also truer to the time period/setting this is based on i guess) because now it doesnt look as much like random white lady saving a bunch of brown people, she herself was a slave and that’s always been part of her main moral drive but now it seems more believable because she’s no longer apparently the only white slave on the planet
i liked how jons scene of him trying to be a leader transitioned to dany’s scene of her trying to be a leader ha ha #basic
the hunger games-style
