Game of Thrones
You don't seem to understand how an overwhelmingly aggrieved individual would make decisions bolstered by an innate sense of righteous vindication . . . Grey Worm is not interested in political ramifications . . . he is a Black man in a White world where though empowered with immense authority he has been rendered absolutely impotent as he was unthinkably denied the chance to defend his Ladylove . . . and then his queen!!

Grey Worm would been solely focused on expressing his righteous sense of justice and gaining vindication against these two traitors who probably conspired in his eyes as well as those Unsullied guarding Tyrion (Red Ant & Black Rat??) to commit treason and regicide . . . but because being emotionally aggrieved is such a personal perspective the fact that Grey Worm would have laid down his life to defend his Queen . . . but was cheated of this chance to do so as he was with his Ladylove would surely have made his decision to personally execute these two traitors a righteous and cathartic vindication

Neither the Unsullied nor the Dothraki fear death by combat Shotgun and therefore this would be a righteous battle to the end for which Grey Worm would have their OVERWHELMING ENTHUSIASM!!!

So guys I've been thinking . . . there is a plausible reason GRRM didn't feel the need to finish TWOW last Fall or even this Winter . . . the Big Suits at HBO, Time Warner and perhaps even AT&T didn't want to risk the ratings backlash or jeopardize the myriad mediums of commercial marketing revenue that the loosely based HBO series adaptation has enjoyed to unprecedented levels this year and several years prior.

TWOW will probably in my personal perspective present a MONUMENTAL plot divergence from the HBO series adaptation . . . one so substantial that the Big Suits feared TWOW would potentially threaten the maximum commercial success they wanted to enjoy!

This Daenerys Targaryen we have come to know on the HBO series adaptation is not the real DT . . . she died within weeks if not days of childbirth (she is actually Visenya Targaryen ~ Prince Rhaeghar's daughter with Lady Lyanna Stark . . . and her real uncle ~ Prince Viserys Targaryen knows it but he has been in a de facto witness protection protocol down in Dorne).  There with the protection of Prince Doran he grew up under the alias Ser Gerold Dayne . . . fViserys got killed in Vaes Dothraki by Khal Drogo we will later learn he was a decoy from Lys or the Crown lands then substituted and secured by the royal Targaryen household at Dragonstone . . . and he had unexpectedly broken mentally into believing he was ACTUALLY the Targaryen dragon heir!

Young Griff aka Prince Aegon Targaryen we will later learn is actually a Blackfyre descendant not the real Targaryen heir to the Iron Throne . . . there are just too many clues and I feel that there MUST be a Blackfyre Rebellion component to this ongoing saga (I was hoping Lord Varys and Lord Connington were neither lying nor mistaken *sigh*)

So what we will have going forward in this literary saga are revelations on fDaenerys, fAegon and fViserys and the last one would have so drastically altered the plot of the series (even Lord Varys is in the dark about fViserys) that the Big Suits at HBO feared the publication of TWOW so GRRM didn't want to risk the potential blowback as he has SEVERAL other ASOIAF projects in preproduction which HBO is actively considering.

Perhaps you missed the subtle racial undertones that HBO wanted to convoy to their culturally literate audience earlier this very season at Winterfell??

Grey Worm and his Ladylove Missandei were two Black people in a very White Westerosi world.

Grey Worm is not a man of words . . . he is not a man of politics . . . he is a man of action . . . military action!

He understands that there is no substitute for military justice and treason demands execution no matter the cost to the UNSULLIED and DOTHRAKI . . . neither of whom have any foreseeable future in King's Landing now that Daenerys has been murdered by TREASON.  So they are who they are . . . the Unsullied are not mariners . . . the Dothraki are not farmers . . . what else was to become of them at the point in time Jon Snow surrendered himself to Grey Worm's military justice for TREASON & REGICIDE???

(When did the Unsullied learn how to sail and navigate anyway . . . they soldiers not sailors?? Unless Yara Greyjoy transports them to Naath they have next to no chance of sailing there themselves)

^^I enlisted in the United States Army on 7-31-2000 as a reserve. Transferred to the United States Air Force on 4-17-2001 as a reserve. Please don't speculate on my military experience.

Revenge for what was done to Daenerys could/should/would definitely occur.  There are a MYRIAD of wartime atrocities that were precipitated as revenge.  Jon stabbed their queen, their emancipator, their reason for living, in cold blood.  The Unsullied and Dothraki would've been on tilt emotionally and they would have ripped Tyrion and Jon Snow to threads, military/political consequences be damned.  

I think rational thought is out the window after the assassination.  Bloodlust is real!!!

^^To further bolster this position consider that dozens of Dothraki had grown up with Khal Drogo's widow and remained with her from the time of his funeral pyre in the season 1 finale . . . Khaleesi Daenerys was their EVERYTHING from childhood to the Dothraki screamers they grew to become in the series finale. For some of them . . . a substantial number surely . . . she was a maternal figure too.

They would demand that those two traitors be brought to justice for their beloved Khaleesi whom they had followed voluntarily and passionately since season 1!!

But no . . . let's wait for WEEKS so a great council and members of Jon Snow's family can assemble and hold a vote . . . let's all wait for his brother in the wheel chair to get down here to the Capitol and his sister, the Lady of Winterfell who never really wanted us indoors up there at her Great Hall . . . kept us outside shivering in snow we have never ever seen before and shit while she feasted the Long Westerosi winter away just feasting folk on flame-grilled lamb & lobster . . . loaves of buttered bread still warm from the brick oven lol . . . let's wait for more of THOSE people as if we don't already know ourselves the penalty for REGICIDE Smile

Just wanted to leave this hyperlink here as food for thought for all you ASOIAF fanatics out here: https://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/t...-a-theory/
It does a pretty good job of persuasively explaining why Prince Doran just did viritually nothing to protect the blatantly treasonous investment he had made by engaging his daughter Princess Arriane Martell to Prince Viserys Targaryen who would later become known as the "Beggar King" while traveling the Free Cities of Essos for 17 years

Remember what Princess Daenerys says as she gazes upon Princess Viserys' corpse after he receives his "Golden Crown" from her husband Khal Drogo: "He was no dragon. Fire cannot kill a dragon"
