In the "Baelor" and "Fire and Blood" episodes of Game of Thrones, I was confused by Daenerys's story. Her shaky authority and her heretical actions put her in danger. In "Baelor", Jorah said things to the effect of:
This isn't Westereos where men honor blood. Here they only honor strength. There will be fighting here after Drogo dies. Whoever wins that fight will be the new Khal. He won't want any rivals. Your boy will be plucked from your breast and given to the dogs.
We could have been 10 miles away from here by now on the way to Asshai. You would have been safe.
I interpreted those comments to mean that there were many Dothraki vying to be Khal and most of them would try to kill her. However, in "Fire and Blood", Daenerys is unharmed. Did I miss the part in "Fire and Blood" where they explained why Daenerys was unharmed by the bloodriders? I realize that when
Jorah killed Qotho,
that put an end to some of the danger, but he was just one of many Dothraki. What was stopping them from killing Daenerys and her unborn child? In "Fire and Blood" why do they just leave without doing what Jorah said they would do? Is this explained more in the book?
