Rhaenys and Corlys Are a House of the Dragon Couple That Actually Likes Each Other, and Eve Best and Steve Toussaint Are Here for It — Watch

Warning: This post contains spoilers from House of the Dragon Season 2, Episode 2.

We now interrupt House of the Dragon‘s regularly scheduled rundown of couples who don’t actually seem to enjoy being around each other all that much (cough Daemon and Rhaenyra cough) to celebrate a break from the norm: Princess Rhaenys Targaryen and her husband, Lord Corlys Velaryon.

While they’re not without their own issues — and really, what marriage is? — the scene in Sunday’s episode between the Queen That Never Was and The Sea Snake was a quiet, loving exchange that spoke to the pair’s long relationship. In bed, presumably after making love, Rhaenys lay on Corlys’ chest as they spoke about the tumult at Dragonstone following Rhaenyra and Daemon’s argument. (Go deep on that development with Matt Smith here, and read a full recap of the episode here.)

The scene was such a refreshing palate-cleanser that TVLine couldn’t wait to talk about it with Eve Best (who plays Rhaenys) and Steve Toussaint (Corlys). Turns out, they loved it as much as we did.

After joking in the video above that perhaps the sweet moment was “a first for the franchise,” Best points out that even in the afterglow, “they’re still talking about politics!”

“You can’t drop the plot completely,” Toussaint chimes in, laughing.
