I understand that point Rothko but if all three dragons just fly around roasting Lannisters and Greyjoys there is no drama in that battle. Martin always ups the drama and tests for his characters. I think one of the dragons die. I could be wrong but I'm sticking to it.
The real point is that the 3-headed dragon is needed because dragons will be needed to fight the Others (white Walkers/Night's King in the show) and will be flown by 3 characters - it is up for debate who those 3 are - largely believed to be Dany, Jon and the third is open to debate - many believe Tyrion - some believe Bran either directly or through Three-Eyed Raven powers - It is quite possible a dragon will die in the show (and possibly the books) but that runs up against the 3 Heads of the Dragon theories.
Time will tell
