Editor's note: This article contains spoilers for House of the Dragon Season 1, Episode 5.As part of our new ritual, my boyfriend and I tuned in to watch House of the Dragon this past Sunday, along with about  29 million other viewers.

We both let out a collective “aww” when, halfway through the episode, the show introduced its first queer storyline. In one scene, Princess Rhaenyra, played by Milly Alcock, discusses her soon-to-be marriage to her betrothed, her cousin, Laenor Velaryon, played by John Macmillan.

In a seemingly modern agreement of sorts, Rhaenyra and Laenor decide they will have an open marriage. This gives the couple the freedom to explore their separate love interests.
