combat – Grappling Strike Maneuver + Thorn Whip = 30 ft Grapple?

Grappling Strike is a Battle Master Maneuver that reads:

Immediately after you hit a creature with a melee attack on your turn, you can expend one superiority die and then try to grapple the target as a bonus action (see the Player’s Handbook for rules on grappling). Add the superiority die to your Strength (Athletics) check.

Unlike other maneuvers, it doesn’t specify that you have to be making a Weapon attack, (probably so it will combo with the Unarmed Fighting fighting style that was printed in the same book.)

Thorn Whip is a Cantrip with a Range of 30 ft and the following Description:

You create a long, vine -like whip covered in thorns that lashes out at your command toward a creature in range. Make a melee spell attack against the target. If the attack hits, the creature takes 1d6 piercing damage, and if the creature is Large or smaller, you pull the creature up to 10 feet closer to you. This spell’s damage increases by 1d6 when you reach 5th level (2d6), 11th level (3d6), and 17th level (4d6).

Despite having a 30 ft Range, Thorn Whip counts as a Melee attack. So can a character with access to both use their action to cast Thorn Whip, and then spend the superiority die and a bonus action to attempt a grapple from long range, assuming the other requirements for attempting a Grapple, (such as needing to have an empty hand), are met?

dnd 5e – Does immunity to piercing damage make you immune to the pull effect of the Thorn Whip spell?

Nope.

The pull effect of Thorn Whip is contingent on a successful melee spell attack against a creature who is Large-sized or smaller.

If the attack hits, the creature takes 1d6 piercing damage, and if the creature is Large or smaller, you pull the creature…

If both conditions are true (the attack hits and the creature is no larger than Large-sized), then the pull effect would occur whether or not the creature takes damage.

Note that the spell doesn’t explain how or why the creature is pulled. Do the thorns grip them? Does the whip wrap around them? Is it some unseen magical force? Regardless, spells do what they say they do. A hypothetical DM could rule otherwise, but by RAW, the creature is pulled simply because the spell says so.

dnd 5e – Can a druid with Thorn Whip pull a target through other creatures?

What is blocking Thorn Whip's "train"?

Thorn whip: … and if the creature is large or small, you pull the creature up to 10 feet closer to you.

As a specific example, the druid draws a creature 15 feet away, but another creature is right in front of the target (and between the target and the druid). Can the target be pulled by the other creature?

Does it matter whether the other creature is an enemy or an ally? Does the other creature have a choice?

dnd 5e – How do I apply the Thorn Whip Pull effect to a riding target?

The Cantrip description for the thorn whip is:

You create a long, wine-red whip that is covered with thorns and strikes at them
Your command to a creature within range. Perform a melee attack
against the target. If the attack strikes, the creature receives 1d6
Puncture damage, and if the creature is large or small, you pull it
Creature up to 10 feet closer to you.

If the Cantrip is aimed at a target that rides and hits a mount, should both mount and rider be pulled?
