Daenerys Targaryen’s ancestors are getting mentioned more and more frequently on Game of Thrones, suggesting that there are parts of her family’s past that Dany could stand to learn from. Who was Baelor the Blessed? Who was “Egg” that Maester Aemon called out to from his death bed? On this week’s House Slate, Amanda Marcotte and Marc Faletti dig into two of Daenerys’ ancestors to decide whether she’s reliving their mistakes.
Also, Tyrion Lannister seems awfully sure that Dany will be happy to see him. But her family and his have a lot of bad blood between them. Will she be able to get over that to give her would-be friend a chance?
