“Emma D’Arcy is probably gonna get an Emmy for this season. Rhaenyra’s pain and anger is palpable every scene she is in. Don’t think I am crazy for saying this but I actually really like Aegon. We finally see his personality and it’s very likeable. I know how terrible he is, I don’t want to hear it. I’m just letting you know what his character was like. Biggest critique from last season is that Alicent had no autonomy. Now I can’t say for sure because I only saw one episode but it feels like we’re going to see her gain more agency. It’s clear the showrunners are on twitter listening to everything we’ve been complaining about. Everyone’s wig was on point, the costumes were decadent and beautiful. They updated some landmarks that previously we had said were underwhelming. And, they were not afraid to show these dragons. I just know the accountant was just pulling out his hair. This season is going be messy, I cannot wait.”
