You shouldn't have a DC even a RODC that can't connect to other DCs. The RODC will not work at all since it must connect at least once to the HQ for each local user caching to allow users to login to the domain.

If the DCs haven't connected to the HQ DC over a period of time they become tombstoned so, you would have to remove the DC from AD anyways. You will can replication issues and DC failover issues, etc.

So, the answer is NO.

You can however purchase a VPN solution to connect the two sites together.
