the marriage wasn't precisely going neatly even earlier than the homicide – Daemon (Matt Smith) indicates up, smirking, and his exasperated brother King Viserys (Paddy Considine) enables him to be a part of their desk, even though they'd a falling out last episode about Daemon making out with Rhaenyra in a brothel.
