On the upcoming fourth season of Game of Thrones, fans should not expect Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) to finally land on Westeros ground.
Assuming the Game of Thrones writers continue adapting book 3 of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Daenerys will continue to build her army throughout Essos.
Through season 3, Daenerys conquered several slave cities, including Astapor and Yunkai, and the increasingly confident heir to the throne will try to conquer more in season 4. Her next conquest is the city of Meereen; she then easily overtakes Meereen and becomes the Queen of the city.
In Meereen, a man named Hizdahr zo Loraq (Joel Fry) becomes unhappy with all of the changes Dany has made to his city. In order to accrue more power and influence, Hizdahr asks Dany to marry him on several occasions, though she is not interested.
Things change when the city of Meereen becomes overrun by a group called the Sons of the Harpy, who terrorize free men at night and kill them. Hizdahr and Dany strike a deal stating that if Hizdahr can keep the city peaceful for 90 days then Dany will agree marry him and he will be King of Meereen.
Luckily for Hizdahr, everything goes according to plan and he becomes engaged to be married to Dany.
As she will be busy ruling over Meereen and dealing with marriage prospects, it is safe to assume that Dany will not be finding her way to Westeros any time soon. In fact, she still hasn't made it to Westeros after five books, indicating that it will be a long time in Game of Thrones before she takes her rightful place on the Iron Throne.
Game of Thrones season 4 is set to premiere in spring 2014 on HBO, though a specific premiere date has not yet been scheduled by the network.
