WARNING: This article contains major spoilers from Season 6, Episode 8 of Game of Thrones. If you haven’t watched it yet, then I’d strongly advise you to return to the previous page. Quick, before the masters arrive!
This weeks episode of Game of Thrones proved an eventful episode for the residents of Meereen as the masters of Slavers Bay launched an attack on the great city. Grey Worm had previously advised Tyrion to be wary of the masters and unfortunately he was right. As the great city lies in ruin, Daenerys makes her triumphant return. But how will she react to the happenings in the once great city?
Is she angry with Tyrion?
Dany hasn’t been in seen in Meereen ever since Drogon flew her safety at the end of the last season. Now she has returned and even though she is bound for Westeros, she will undoubtedly try to clean up the mess in Meereen before she attempts to take the Seven Kingdoms. The look on her face during this scene said it all – she appears unhappy with her confidantes. She is disappointed and perhaps a little angry. In her absence Tyrion has managed to revive slavery – a practice that Dany has often expressed her hate for. He also angered the masters which led to the attack on Meereen. And lets not forget that he freed Dany’s other two dragons: Viserion and Rhagal. Dany is very protective of her children and if we remember back to the fourth season, she locked them up because they were getting out of control. Furthermore, Varys, who so closely monitored Tyrion’s attempts at ruling has now left Meereen, leaving him to fend for himself.
I could be totally wrong, but Dany may not take to kindly to whats been going on in her absence. However, she cannot remain angry at her friends for too long as it’s definitely time for her to move on to Westeros. Moreover, Dany has learnt so much during her time at Vaes Dothrak; she also managed to obtain the army that she needed to take Westeros – the Dothraki khalasar. The Dothraki khalasar and Daario Neharis have yet to arrive in Meereen but when they do, the masters will rue the day they crossed Daenerys Stormborn.
What happens next?
Lets not forget that Yara and Theon Greyjoy are planning to head to Meereen to meet Dany. Also, the two are being hunted by their uncle Euron, who is also setting sail for Meereen with a thousand ships, which is conveniently the amount of ships that Dany needs to make it to Westeros. This insinuates that we may see Dany stay in Meereen for al little while longer. If she does stay, then she will attepmt to restore Meereen to it’s former glory. Dany gets more and more confident with each passing episode, and I cannot wait to see how this storyline plays out. The masters had better watch their back – the Mother of Dragons has returned!
