Either way, I found his encounter with the dragons to be more interesting than anything Tyrion did throughout his twelve chapters. Even that time he watched some turtles.
Well, when you put it like this ...
I don't think it was that bad an idea, there was just way too much of it. The overall Meereen plot is a good idea and I like all the plot developments. They just come ridiculously slowly and the majority of the time, nothing is happening. Things do pick up once Selmy takes centre stage though. He had some good sequences.
It's an OK-ish idea - to show that she's after all a 16 y.o. teenager who doesn't know much about anything - with bad execution. Basically, she decides to play Civilization with real life city, without thinking about the consequences of her actions, and predictably fucks up epically in the process.
