Both the book and the television series fandoms should live in peace - Nothing productive comes from bickering on both sides about intellect levels of fans. We all like the same characters and universe and anyone who hasn’t read the books I encourage to do so but I would never look down on them - That just ain’t right.
Daenerys Targaryen is a teenager. Before AGoT, she knew absolutely nothing about dragons or her family history aside from what she learned from her brother Viserys, whose information was probably extremely biased and inaccurate. She had also never ruled a country…
You gotta show love for Dany and her well picked advisors and I also gotta say that despite Jorah and his flaws he is a great character and one of the few to speak his mind and never falter from where he stands. I mean, look at his house words: “Here we stand.” Though I don’t ignore his glaring flaws either.
He’s just clingy but the guy has more heart than a dozen characters from ASOIAF combined and he may lack common sense but he would die for Dany he was given the choice. That is the kind of person any ruler or any high-profile person can hope to have around them, someone who deeply cares about them and would put their physical safety first. The only thing she needed to fix was the whole “in love with her” thing but it seemed almost like she enjoyed watching him struggle and watching it play out - I feel bad for both Dany and Jorah.
He was a fool for not knowing when to quit and she was a fool for playing him like a fiddle. Hopefully once (if) they meet again she will take his gesture of Tyrion and their army as one of politeness and not one of stupidity.
