'Game of Thrones': A Traveler's Guide to Dothraki — How to Speak So You Don't Get Your Head Cut Off
As viewers count down the days to Game of Thrones’ return, we here at Yahoo TV are launching our official countdown: #GoTIsComing. Check back here every day over the next month as we explore all of our favorite (and a few of our least favorite) people, places, and things about television’s most addictive show. From Direwolves and Dragons to the shows most hideous deaths and imperiled characters, we’re going to indulge or GoT obsession with the same fervor that Cersei imbibes alcohol.

Well, for one, we’ll return to Vaes Dothrak — last seen only briefly in the series’ fourth episode. In the Season 6 preview clip below, Danaerys looks humbled, but unharmed as she’s brought beneath the ancient Horse Gate. Vaes Dothrak is ruled by women — former wives of khals who have died — who possess great wisdom and prophetic powers. It’s the Dothraki’s only city since they are otherwise a nomadic people, riding across the the plains of Essos on horseback.
