Daenerys Targaryen will learn that conquering a city is very different from ruling it in "Game of Thrones" Season 5. Her dragons will have grown bigger but there may not be a big battle to use them. The dragons are ineffective against a hidden enemy. Spoilers Ahead.

According to the book series "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R. R. Martin, Daenerys will face a new enemy in the city of Meereen. A group calling themselves Sons of the Harpy will try to destabilise her rule in the city.
The members of the Sons of the Harpy will kill the supporters of Daenerys Targaryen and the soldiers in her army. The queen has two options to solve this problem - either allow slave trade to continue or work with a respected noble family in Meereen to contain the situation.
Daenerys will also face a threat from the Yunkai in "Game of Thrones" Season 5. The Yunkai are raising a large army and are getting the support of the other free cities. Stopping of the slave trade has threatened the way of life for many of the powerful people in the free cities.
Daenerys will get a flurry of marriage proposals including one from the House Martell of Dorne. Daenerys will finally concede to marrying into a noble house in Meereen in exchange for peace. The peace however may not last long.
Fans of Tyrion Lannister who are hoping that he meets with Daenerys Targaryen will have to wait a little longer. The two popular characters are expected to cross paths in the upcoming book "Winds of Winter."
The role of dragons may still be minimal in "Game of Thrones" Season 5. Viewers saw the mother of dragons chain two of her dragons in the dungeon. But the biggest of the three -Drogon managed to escape. Viewers may finally see Daenerys ride Drogon towards the end of the season.
"Game of Thrones" Season 5 is expected to premiere in April 2015. The show is one of the most watched and pirated TV shows. The show is famous for unexpected and sudden twists. Fans of the show eagerly await the next season and are excited to see their favourite characters in action.
