I hadn't thought of that possibility, but you may be right.
Either way, it shows she ain't too bright.

I liked that scene VERY much. I've been dying to have the power of the dragons showed and Daenerys' control over them, and it was! That they could have that much power even at their tiny size really makes me look forward to seeing what they're capable of fully grown.
Count me as one of the people who likes the richness of the narrative. They can keep this going for several seasons, and I'll be happy.

The only storyline that I didn't really buy was, as usual, Jon Snow's. At least there was some movement on it this week, but with the way they built up Snow I don't believe that he would have had the stones to kill Halfhand without hesitation when he let Snow disarm him. I also don't buy that the wildlings would have immediately made the jump to "oh we can totally trust this guy because he killed an ally that was clearly goading him into a fight, let's untie him and introduce him to our king".
It is a little hard to swallow, but it seems to be where it's going.
Is it just me, or did the White Walkers in this episode look different than the ones from the first scene of the series? I can't remember specifically, but I thought in the first episode they were shown (or hinted at) as big, really tall monster-like things that were extremely agile rather than human-style zombies.
Exactly what I thought too.
