What if Danerys doesn't waste the Dothraki on a pointless charge etc.

But seriously the show would be improved by like a 14yo military history buff.

I won't get into the details but the humans could have won the battle with the Dothraki in-tact. They may have even been able to keep the dead from breaching the front line!

The showrunners have said that this is the end of the Dothraki- literally a 5 minute scene. A lot of money was saved with this move...

The show runners have turned a fairly interesting TV show, for at least its first 3-4 seasons, into a stock Hollywood comic book spectacle.

However, if the Dothraki had not been wasted in that ill advised attack, then Danerys would be in better shape in the next confrontations vs Cerisi. That would have made for more interesting battles than the Zombie trope or tripe the producers offered up.

I think they could have preserved most of the:

1. the trebuchets
2. the dothraki
3. unsullied and other infantry

for the final battle. Instead the dothraki /trebuchets and most of the unsullied are destroyed- leaving 1 dragon and two platoons of unsullied in front of the city gates!

Also, this thread subject is actually a massive spoiler...

turns out that the Dothraki weren't annihilated at Winterfell. I guess the rest were taking a break. The humans lost half of their troops at Winterfell.

The show has always been iffy with troop numbers.

As are most historical accounts ;)
