As it goes. Yes, we know. But just like we know Spidey and Black Panther aren't dead forever, the suspension is part of the fun.

...missed the trailer scene of the trial, I thought that maybe you hadn't seen the earlier trailer as well and were in actual contemplation about what his fate might be.

From a narrative standpoint, it actually would make much more sense to imprison or execute him, much for the reasons Daenerys explained during the trial. It is factually correct that, without having brought an army to fight with him, the risk of betrayal far outweighs anything a lone cripple could add to the battlefield. While we know what has transpired and that he is true to his word, why should they accept his word when all his actions show no conviction behind it (especially after all the incidents that lead to the downfall of previous would-be kings and conquerors in the show)?

No, as I explained in my thread, his presence there alone doesn't really make sense in-world, but what can you do...
