    Despite his incompatible orientation with her, I like that Laenor is doing his best to be a good and supportive husband to Rhaenyra, and probably will be a good father to his "sons".
  • Shofie Mahowyn
    I really like how these two are together in this. They genuinely seem like friends and in a partnership, even if they aren't in love, and it's really wholesome.
  • The dynamic here between Laenor and Rhaenyra is everything and communicates so much about them in just a few lines - their loyalty to one another, their affection - the look Rhaenyra shoots him when he asks if it was painful giving birth! 😆 And Laenor’s mounting rage that Alicent would put Rhaenyra in this position - straight up ride or die for his cousin-wife-friend right there!
  • Puffy Cheeks
    Despite all its seriousness, love the death stare she gave Laenor for asking "Was it terribly painful?" 😂
  • Tiago Macri
    I'll miss Milly so much, but 1 min of Emma's acting was enough to me realize that she will do an amazing job
  • Ryan O
    I admire the relationship between Laenor and Rhaenyra. They married out of duty and aren’t in love with each other but still respect and care for each other. Laenor even tries to be a caring husband and loving father.
  • Sarah Nour
    I love the friendship/partnership between Rhaenyra and Laenor. They support and accept each other, and Laenor seems like a proud dad despite knowing the kids aren't his. They truly made the best of their situation.
  • Olivia Carter
    When Laenor said “what could she possibly want, I thought we were past this”- I think this is a hint that Laenor accepts Rhaenyra’s kids as his own. Hes always recognized those boys as his own regardless of what people says. That makes me LOVE Laenor so much 😢

    The casting is just extremely solid. Emma D‘Arcy as Rhaenyra looks so similar to her mother, Aemma, played by Sian Brooke 👌
  • MaverickLotus
    There's this brief moment when even through her pain, she looks down at her baby and smiles. ❤

    I love their friendship so much. They may not be compatible as lovers but I think they’d be great friends

    Alicent is so horrible for this. Asking for a woman to move for her own “satisfaction” when she went through the same???? And she knew how Rhaenyra’s mother died.
  • Rhaenyra and Laenor seem to have one of the healthiest marriages. He's so supportive of her.
  • That is an awesome single shot scene. The skill of the cast and crew really shines.
  • I love Emma D'Arcy as Rhaenyra here. They portray her so well. The dry wit and tenacity in her voice even after going through childbirth and the way Laenor supports her, I love that.
    Also I'm already Team Black.
  • Atrajit Roy
    Laenor almost seems like a caring 'normal' brother in this scene. He was the closest thing to a brother Rhaenyra had while growing up, and despite having different orientations, he genuinely seems to love her platonically, like any non-Targaryen brother would.
  • Event Horizon
    Already in love with the new actress. It shows how once a tenacious Rhaenyra is not so much anymore because of everything that's going around. Kudos to Emma.

    as if I couldn't hate Alicent more.... Outright cruel of her to summon her literally moments after birth. And wow, I'm gonna miss Milly but I'm so excited to see Emma as Rhaenyra!! Incredible already in this short clip. And I'm loving Rhae and Laenor's friendship in the show. So supportive of her and seems like he'd be a great dad to "his" kids. Team Black 🖤
  • Rhaenyra looks so much like her mother here. Emma D'arcy is just amazing!!
  • Debodipta Paul
    To everyone asking why Rhaenyra is even allowing Alicent to push her around like this. The way I interpret is that
    1. If Rhaenyra doesn't do it, they'll just say that she's trying to hide the baby. There's already that rumour in court that the kids aren't Laenor's.

    2. To portray Rhaenyra as weak because of chilbirth/babies and therefore unfit to rule. The already misogynistic lords of Westeros will definitely jump on that bandwagon.

    3. Alicent knows how painful childbirth is and what happened to Rhaenyra's mother, so this is another powerplay by her.
