ps. I forgot too add how terrible the acting is

Why couldn't they turn around? Doran promised them safety.
But If they couldn't like you said and people and guards really hated Doran like she said(though logically they had ZERO reasons tom either in series or in books), why not kill him then ALONG with Jamie, Myrcella and Trystane while they are all in the same place?
Oh, and the only way the Dorne storyline can redeem itself is if the country plunged into civil war. Because Prince Doran was despised and deserved to die, let me see if I've got this straight- for keeping the country peaceful and prosperous. Even if folks didn't like Doran, his brother's girlfriend has exactly fuck all legitimate claim to the throne. And, after she commits regicide, princess-icide and whatever you call killing the heir to the throne, she's going to just plop her tight little ass down on the throne and everyone in not just Dorne, but the rest of the Seven Kingdoms, is going to shrug and go on with their day? Yeah, I'll fucking believe that.
What's got me irritated is the part of the Ramsey story when Pops Bolton implied that if Ramsey doesn't give him a grandson, he's dead. Roose needs an heir, but he thinks (rightly) that Ramsey will be a disaster. So as soon as Ramsey cranks out a son, or the fat Frey chick does, Ramsey is expendable. If he has any sense of self-preservation at all, he should be figuring out a way to kill his potential half brother, his step mom, and while we're at it, Roose, too. He's been legitimized, so that's the only way he stays alive and happily raping and torturing folks. Instead we get him looking all worried and sad.
Well Ramsey is scared shitless of his father and probably knows that Roose is a lot smarter and more devious than he is. As far as killing an heir, Ramsay has already killed a half brother which forced Roose to legitimize him so killing another (and a baby at that) shouldn't be too difficult.
Not to mention -- why did they do the overly dramatic kiss of death, let Jamie escape, let the prince (the little prince) get away too? Wouldn't the obvious thing for the Lannisters to do with the kid is announce that he's the new king of Dorne? Imagine if they'd gotten onto the boat and found that he was long gone?
It seems to be a really common thing these days in television to count on people just not remembering what happened last season.
I must be their demo cause I largely forgot until I looked through a recap on SB Nation last night. Dorne story line sucked (sand snake girls were corny), I was confused by the killing of the prince on the boat - howd the get there so fast?? Whatever, show has been downhill since first season. Still highlight of my Sunday nights (Veep is for Mondays)

And then Areo Hotah - who is one of the baddest, strongest warriors in Westeros (two handed Jamie Lannister level) gets killed by a single thrust of a little palm dagger. What the fuck? I mean, even if the show didn't really portray him as a great warrior, there is no believable way that a man of his size and muscle mass would be instantly felled by something that small. He would still be able to fight for a bit, even if it was poisoned
