Game of Thrones backlash: Where did the Dothraki go? This explains everything – Express

Game of Thrones
Westeros was a bit of a wreck by the end of Season 8 of the HBO adaptation. Ripe pickings for a highly mobile horde of savage warriors who live to loot and pillage. The only way the cities of Essos survived was to offer the Dothraki huge bribes to pass by. Not many in Westeros have that much to barter with right now so what would stop the Dothraki plundering their way across the continent? The Lords and their new King – and Queen in the North – should be worried. Except, the Dothraki seem to have vanished in a puff of smoke, rather like their fake annihilation at Winterfell... There was no sign of them on the Unsullied ships. How can they stay anywhere in Westeros? They don't build cities so they can't be offered castles. They don't create anything so they can't be offered land. .


All they do is ride and pillage. No-one in Westeros will accept that. Ned Stark rightly said he would fear the Dothraki when they learn to run on water. Well, they made it across the 'Poison Water" in Daenerys' fleet. Its remains sailed off with Little Worm to the Isle of Naath, Missandei's birthplace. Who else would possibly accept a blood-thirsty horde of Dothraki on their ships? How would the Dothraki pay for it? Without their quasi-goddess queen, how would they brave the ocean again? This sums up the fatal fails in logic and storytelling which crippled the final series. Remember, just a few episodes earlier it looked like not a single Dothraki was left alive after that spine-tingling charge at the Battle of Winterfell. It looked breathtaking as their weapons ignited and they thundered towards the forces of the Night King. .
