I mean if we're going to nitpick character setbacks, let's nitpick character setbacks.
Dany: Killed her mother during childbirth, exiled for most of her life, forcibly married/raped, lost her husband, lost her posse, lost her dragons (lol), lost her queensguard, had to exile her bodyguard because he's a creep, lost her dragon again, gets placed at Club Med Dothraki.
Brienne: Loses Renly, loses Catelyn, almost raped by mercs, almost killed by bear, lets Arya get away, lets Sansa get away.
Also, if you think that Reek/Miranda mean anything to Ramsay,
Ok but really, I kinda agree that Dany gets too many lucky rolls, but just because she has "rollover the competition" story arcs doesn't mean Ramsay's are any less frustrating to watch.
