I don’t like Viserys. The way he treats Dany is despicable. He is abusive, arrogant, entitled, and all-around just not a good person.
However, I think it’s important to consider where Viserys comes from. First of all, he’s the product of generations of inbreeding. Right there comes all sorts of problems. When he is just a small child (no older than 5 if I’m not mistaken), his father, brother, sister-in-law, niece, and nephew are murdered, his family’s centuries-long dynasty is demolished, and his mother dies giving birth to his sister as they’re being evacuated from their home. He is then smuggled across the narrow sea with his newborn sister by a family friend, who then also dies, and then he is kicked out of that home. He has to take his sister from city to city, living at the sufferance of others. He’s mocked as the “beggar king” by the people of Essos, and is forced to sell his dead mother’s crown, leaving only rage in him.
So obviously he has fucking issues. Yes, he’s an abusive, misogynistic prick. Yes, I’m glad he died. If he didn’t we probably wouldn’t have the Dany we know and love now. But I think it’s understandable why he acts the way he acts, I don’t think he’s an entirely unsympathetic character, and I don’t think he was inherently evil.

Bright Star (2009) dir. Jane Campion
Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.
As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.
The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.
‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.
But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole.
‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.
Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.
