Home of the Dragon‘s fourth episode had loads of steamy moments that made the present dwell as much as its “HotD” abbreviation. Then there was the not-so-sexy visible of King Viserys I getting it on along with his spouse, (poor) Alicent, whereas the viewers bought a good dangerous have a look at the open sores on his again. Not solely that, however he’s misplaced fingers, and it’s clear that not even maggots might help remedy what ails him. Wounds from the throne are nothing novel in Westeros — King Aerys II, the Mad King, was also called King Scab for a purpose — however Viserys seems to be downright rotting away, so what provides?

Our personal Jessica Toomer’s been doing a weekly wound watch, and this week, she notes Viserys’ discolored arm along with these lacking digits and no matter’s happening along with his again. It’s clear that Viserys’ physique refuses to heal, and he’s concurrently struggling to determine how the Targaryens can maintain onto the throne.

So is the throne, , killing Viserys?

Loads of theories abound. There’s a query of whether or not the chair’s truly the supply of all that ails the king.
