Jacerys is a great kid, though; he would have made a good king. Corlys & Rhaenys are my favorite couple (and my favorite characters) in the series. The actors are doing a fantastic job playing a great power couple who have believable chemistry with some ups and downs (they are not always 100% in agreement as we saw in this episode). Exactly. And I like how all of them were bloodied up. It literally communicated the fact that none of them were innocent but that the bloodiest one Aemond was the most guilty. I also really like how they are making Aemond multidimensional and, dare I say, likable. And I am surprised that I like it so much. Did you also notice how Aegon wants absolutely nothing to do with any of this? LOL I loved it. Alicent has been turning her kids (mainly the boys because Helaena is not buying it lol) against Rhaenyra by telling them about the bastardy of Rhaenyra's sons. Regardless of the truth of the matter, Alicent should not be involving children into adult business and expecting them to still act like children. Like why is the ascension of Rhaenyra Targaryen any of their concern? Does Viserys know that Alicent is plotting to marry Aegon to Helaena? In any case, it has nothing to do with bias. The way that Rhaenyra and Alicent are raising their children is the reason why Rhaenyra's sons are sweethearts and Alicent's sons are rogues. I thought it was really cool when Aemond acknowledged that he heard it from his mother (if she had been exposed, she would have gotten into some serious trouble) but passed the hot potato to the very unprepared Aegon. And how Aegon deflected the sharp questioning by making it about appearance (book line quote!) instead of who he had heard it from. Viserys, nowhere near as bright as he should be, allowed him to shrug it off as teen gossip rather than accept the fact that Aegon is hoodwinking him.
