Season 6

After Tyrion Lannister has met with a delegation of nobles from Astapor, Yunkai and Volantis, he meets a group of freedmen from Meereen, including Kesh, who are unhappy with Tyrion negotiating for peace with the people who caused so much suffering for them. Kesh asks Tyrion when Daenerys will return to Meereen and Tyrion assures him that she will come back soon. However, the men don't trust Tyrion as he is a stranger to the court. Kesh turns to Missandei instead, asking her whether she trusts Tyrion and she reluctantly confirms that they need to make peace.[1]
