While the hype is real when it comes to Jon Snow’s fate, how he will be resurrected and how he is going to save the world from the White Walker invasion coming from the North, not much attention was given to Danny. Daenerys Targaryen was left surrounded by an army of Dothraki riders at the end of season 5 and she did not look like she was in a pleasant situation.
Before we go on, we have to warn you that there might be some spoilers lurking nearby. Nobody knows what is going to happen in season 6 because spoilers, although big spoilers, were quite scarce and there is no “last book” that people could have read and tell everyone what is going on. The path forward is paved with leaked pictures and “what ifs”, but if we nail it, there are definitely spoilers that you might not want to read.
According to Watchers on the Wall, Game of Thrones did cast an actor known as Staz Nair that would play the role of a Dothraki warrior. Nair’s situation is a little big vague: his position has yet to be confirmed by Thrones or by he himself. Nobody knows if he is going to be a Khal, any other type of warrior or just the one who will help Daenerys. And he hasn’t been keeping a low profile either.
Next in line is Joe Naufahu, a new member of the Thrones cast that is expected to be the actual Khal. In the first season, when Drogo was Kahl, Daenerys’ unity with him made her Kahleesi, a Dothraki queen, so to speak. But everything changed when Drogo died and members of the clan were having disputes on who would be the following Kahl. The people disbanded: some went with Danny, others followed Drogo’s lieutenants.
Now Game of Thrones directors want to keep the series as close to the books as possible, even though it might not seem like it from the beginning. In Martin’s last novel, Jahqo, one of Drogo’s lieutenants, greets Daenerys in the open field, so this makes us wonder if he is the Khal now. There might be another part of the clan that is following Pono, Jahqo’s contestant as the next Kahl, so there might be something that we do not know yet.
So even though not much attention was given to Danny, her fate is quite uncertain at the moment. Hopefully, she will be able to return to Mereen and continue her journey towards the Iron Throne. And she could use a few thousand Dothrakis to bolster her ranks.
