Giving Viserys The Hand
When Dany finally stood up to her older brother as a Khaleesi, audiences stood as well–to cheer her on
. She told her would-be king brother that it was she who was actual royalty and that he had better remember it when she smacked him across the face with a strand of heavy gold. This was the very moment the Khaleesi became aware of her status and the power that came with it. Unfortunately for Viserys, her message fell on deaf ears, and he suffered greatly for not listening, ultimately dying beneath the smoldering heat of his own “crown of gold,” courtesy of Dany’s new husband, Khal Drogo.
