Moment of Goodness: Viserys Targaryen Gets Put In His Place on Game of Thrones

I can’t say I’ve ever been a fan of Harry Lloyd‘s Viserys Targaryen. I don’t like the way he talks to or treats his sister and he’s got no respect for anyone but himself. I would have liked to spend a little more time with the Dothraki during this week’s episode but what little we did get was really good stuff. I like that Daenerys is acting and talking more like a queen, but Viserys will be commanded by no one save himself. And when he decides to tell his sister that – and rather forcefully – he’s reminded that he has no real power amongst the Dothraki. In fact, he ends up on his ass with a whip around his neck. I’d like to see more of that please.

Viserys and Daenerys don’t have what I would call a normal or healthy sibling relationship. It’s not nearly as creepy or gross as what Jaime and Cersei Lannister have going on but it’s not an appropriate relationship either. Tonight we learned that their father died by the sword of Jaime Lannister and some people take issue in the way Jaime killed him. There also seems to be a consensus that he was a mad king. I think Viserys takes a bit after his father and if he doesn’t watch it he could turn into a raving lunatic. He’s clearly spoiled and believes everyone should do his bidding. It is so refreshing to see Khal Drogo’s people and even Visery’s ally stand up for Daenerys. I can only hope Viserys learns something from this episode. I’m not holding my breath though.

Bonus moment: Tyrion Lannister helps Jon Snow earn the respect of his fellow night wallers. Jon keeps making the mistake of thinking he’s better than everyone else. Yes, he’s born of noble blood but he’s a bastard. A lot of the men who join the night watch do it because they have no other options. But they can be good men and I think they just want to be understood and respected. Tyrion helps Jon see that.

Second bonus moment: Ned gets Arya a “dancing master.” She learns fast. I feel like it won’t be long until needle rests on her hip or in her hand permanently.
