Anyways, its the show's fault for making Rhea's murder have absolutely no affect on the story or characters. I mean yeah, he is still awful for doing it, but it is awfulness framed like a big joke, especially when seeing his swagger on return to the red keep and the nonchalant way he dismisses the accusation. Even if it was self-defense, it still should have haunted him. Rhea’s murder had no lasting effect (yet) but Daemon remained a man who would abuse his wife on a moment’s notice. Rhaenyra isn’t his perfect soulmate, she didn’t “fix” him. Their destined Valyrian supremacist lovematch was a lie. (I also find it noteworthy that the one who carried on the Targaryen line, Viserys II, was married to a woman from another country, even if Lys is also Valyrian. Incest did not save the Targaryens after they lost their dragons). EggBlue 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
