The second episode titled “The Rogue Prince” takes place six months after Queen Aemma dies and King Viserys Targaryen feels the pressure to find a new wife amidst Lord Corlys Velaryon issues with the Crab Feeder’s pirates at the Stepstones. Rhaenys and Corlys offer up their 12-year-old daughter, Lady Laena to unite the two families and it was a stomach-churning first date.
