    Viserys is the corpse that just won't die. At this point, I expect to see him in every episode until the season finale.

    On another note, did Aemond go into the hyperbolic time chamber? He aged twice as fast as the other kids.

    most of the melanin wiped out. Now I know why they casted the velaryons as blk people.

    Totally agree, didn't warm up to his performance initially but he really put it together making you feel for the character who is doing what he thinks is right up to his dying breathe....

    His labored breathing, limp gestures, and the way he asked for his tea reminded me a LOT of my grandpa's last days (except it was water he wanted not oxy, lulz). Very similar.

    What he say? I thought MAYBE my ABL was kicking in because it was pretty dim for prolonged periods. BUT, NOTHINGGGGGG is dark compared to that GoT episode where Jon Snow went HAM on all them WHITE walkers. Couldn't see ****. Didn't help that the HBO feed back then was trash.

    Man straight up just wanted to play with his architecture models, have everyone get along, dote on his first wife and raise good children. Dude didn't ask for all this strife.

    :(

    Yeah, that was a bit too real.

    The CG done on him was top notch.

    Really great episode and follows the George RR Martin theme….

    King Viserys and Ned Stark are both honorable men but ultimately they didn’t play the game well.

    Last episode was best one so far. Maybe first time Viserys landed with me as a character.

    At least viserys didn't get killed. His era seemed to be relatively peaceful while he is alive. Ned basically asks to killed.

    Does it make anyone else uncomfortable to watch the little ***** fight nasty like adults? The whole eye slashing thing could've been passed off as a mistake... the whole goat-dragon thing escalated quickly.

    Also, this episode had no dragons or fights, but cashes on the "boring setup" from past episodes. You can't pull this one off without investing in the hours before...even while you're wondering when Viserys is finally gonna bite it.

    I think he either played it well enough to contain his bro and hands...or that he lived in good luck with a stable kingdom.

    His problem is the short sighted selfishness/entitlement that plagues the Targaryen line.

    So he didn't set up his downfall but rather his successor's.

    The selfishness/entitlement here appears to plague the Hightowers, not the Targaryens by default.

    We see plenty of Targ kids that aren't pricks. The only two that appear to be total assholes at this point are the two raised by the Hightowers.

    Couldn't he have legitimized the b*stard children and moved forward from there? I don't know if that was a thing in his time or not.

    It's one thing to legitimize the b*stard children of a man, it's another to do it for a woman. They've said a few times that the king would have to disinherit her if that were true.
