Since I never seen Grey Worm name as a top fighter in any of your list, my guess is he isn't that good, but he has rank among the unSully, tho. But any black man opposite Dany is at high risk... no matter how much they might look like the POTUS.

Being that eveybody is matched up does Aryan marry the Hound? Does that guy Ipod marry mother Terrell?

Am I the only find it funny that Cersei might marry a guy that her son will want to punish to death because of his sexual proclivities? And that her fertility would be lost on him after her father's fertility orders? The family name is going to be comedy hour if they don't watch it.

Why Tywin don't like Tyrion's jokes? I like him but he's brutal. He's about stamps and cruel arrangements most of the time.

If you know Tywin's background and family history you'd understand why he hates Tyrion's jokes.

According to the show the Lannisters had 60,000 were lost when Jaimie was captured by the Robb Stark.

So you see Danayreas 8000 Unsullied plus small band of misfits wouldn't be able to hold a candle to the armies of Westeros. If only Khal Drogo and his 40000 strong Dothrakis were around.
I'm not saying those 8k will take over westeros but don't underestimate the unsullied. In general it has become clear that dany freed them so to speak after mormont and barrastan counseled her on how sells words are not very reliable if the outlook of a battle/war is not positive. Compare this to how quickly. A lot of bannermen have abondoned Robb already. Armies fluctuate and 8k might not be a sizeable army but they are solid, and quality men, disciplined and now have become loyal to dany without the fear of death or worrisome about a particular leader/or loyal to their local leader rather than their king/queen.

Plus she has dragons. If tyrion was able to make a stand against stannis's fleet with wildfire, I think dany has a good outlook with fire breathing dragons. They can burn down castles and sheet.

How many men did Stannis lose in Blackwater? Does he still have more men than the Lannisters?

Stannis had 200 ships, he lost "most" of the fleet according the books, which would put the number of lost men in the several thousands, and that's not counting the ground troops he lost or switched sides.

During last season Tywin said that Robs army had 20k guys. They used 2k of their forces as a distraction so they could isolate and capture Jamie with their main force while Tywin/Tyrion and his viking guys took the bait. So after capturing Jamie he should've had 18k guys. If he lost a third of his guys that means he has 12k left. I'm not sure if hes added troops since last season though.

non-book readers should subscribe to the GOT youtube channel. it's nothing incredibly in depth but a few hours after each episode the guys behind it do a breakdown and give a bit more detail.

also, Jaime massacred that hot tub monologue, that was seriously incredible.

Don't tell me he came out the womb telling jokes? Did he tell jokes at the mad king's funeral, ala that rapper guy (poet guy) did at King Barratheon's funeral. You have to admit that the author is very detailed.

Plus he bones his sister. Thats not going to get him any fans.

Crippling Bran in an attempt to kill him didn't do him any favors either.

Simply put size matters. The Unsullied are an awesome fighting force, even underrated by show standards but they're still basically footmen. They're lightly armored with spears and shields. Another thing to remember is that they're only as good as the commander giving orders Dany is completely unprepared in the ways of war, don't know how good a commander Ser Jorah is and Barriston seems liked he'd make an awesome commander but I don't know how much Dany trusts him. True a lot of bannermen would go to her side when she lands but she couldn't handle a united force of the LAnnisters, Tyrells and don't forget Dorne. These guys are battle hardened experienced lords and knights. Of course the Dragons right now are her trump card but they're still too small and uncontrollable to turn the tide in her favour.

In the books Jorah told Danny a story on the Unsullied. Said that in a famous battle 50 thousand Dothraki tried to take a city held by 3000 Unsullied....and lost. They attacked for like 3 days...eventually there were only 300 Unsullied left alive...but they had killed 10000+ of the Dothraki including the leaders...and they had not given one inch of ground....so the new leaders accepted defeat and had all 40 or so thousand soldiers left cut their hair and give it to the Unsullied as a sign of respect.

They didnt tell it in the show...but should have. Maybe they will....but I dont consider it a spoiler since in the books he told it to her before she even bought them. So the time for that has past.

Something I found interesting, I was f'n around on the Game of Thrones Wiki and Jorah's father is actually Jeor Mormont, the head of the night watch that got killed in the 4th episode. I don't think it was ever mentioned on the show.
