Based on events in Season 5 episode 6, "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken", I'd argue that part of why she didn't kill him is that she really cares for him as a role model. When she's playing the "Game of Faces" with Jaqen where she must tell the truth or lie convincingly (the latter of which she's not capable of), Jaquen asks her repeatedly if she hates the Hound ...

Let's not forget Arya is Cat's daughter. Look how horribly Cat treated Jon Snow even though he was completely blameless. And Tyrion - he saved Cat's life but she still stuck to her conviction that he'd tried to kill her son. I actually think there's a fairly strong theme in GOT of women making stupid decisions based on their emotions instead of logic. ...

In the land of Westeros seasons can last many years. The phrase, "Winter is Coming", is a constant reminder that there will be a time when you will not be able to grow food, people will die of both frost and famine, and, above all, time is fleeting. It is the motto of the Stark Clan. Another common phrase, at least in the books and in the first season, ...

list of some changes for Season 5: more here For the first six episodes: 1. The Wars to Come Cersei was accompanied by two girls instead of one, when she went to see Maggy Maggy's prophecy has several differences in the books Maggy predicts that Robert Baratheon will have sixteen children rather than twenty Maggy's physical appearance is ...

They are still around, but there were never that many of them to begin with, so they are fading into the background. In the screen shot below, form when Danaerys first arrives in Qarth, you can see the entire khalasar with her. If you watch the recent scenes with Dany in them, you'll occasionally see a Dothraki extra mixed in, mostly in her Queen's Guard. ...

The following addresses what has already happened in the TV show. The Mountain gets poisoned in the fight, and Cersei tells Qyburn to do what he can to keep him alive. Qyburn agrees, but says he will not be the same as he was (this is consistent so far between the books and TV series). In one scene in season 5 (I don't remember the episode), This leads ...

The Unsullied had not been truly tested. What battles have we seen them in? Dany was told to "Blood them early" which never happened. Their rep is a sales-pitch at best. These dudes are soft. The first one in the season five opener needed a head rub and comfort before having his throat slit. Greyworm is in love? Meanwhile Ser Barriston slew like 9 guys ...

Just as additional speculation that ties into the accepted answer, there are more reasons the Unsullied are less able to fight well against the Sons of the Harpy. In your example of S05E04, we see that the unsullied all continue fighting with spears, despite the fact that they are in close quarters. This is not ideal for them, as they have less room to ...

As of S05E04, it would appear the Melisandre asked because she was hoping to have intercourse with Jon Snow in order to get energy of some sort. She tells Jon that when two people come together, energy is created (for light, shadows, etc). I would take this to mean that she is hoping to harness that energy for another purpose (the upcoming battle of ...

The Unsullied are a battle-group, trained in fighting side-by-side in a similar fashion to the Greek Phalanxes: Unsullied battle tactics are based on the legions of the old Ghiscari Empire, involving large groups of them fighting in lock-step phalanxes using spear and shield, though they are also trained to use shortswords for close-quarters combat. ...

(IMO) What doesn't Jon Snow know? Too damn much! (I've decided to spoil mark this answer. Even though it is my opinion, it may reveal information not yet known by other viewers, understanding that GoT is an unusual case.) Old Nan recounted a story to Bran about an old king of the North (a progenitor of the Starks) who fell in love with a Queen of the White ...

Going off the tv show, I don't think the Northern army was killed, I think they were scattered without leaders. After the small council meeting, Tywin tells tyrion something like "why is it more noble to kill 10,000 men in battle instead of a dozen at dinner" ...
