Lacking Intersectionality in House of the Dragon Episode 5, Season 1


This week's House of the Dragon incorporates the woes of gay love in Westoros, adding to the "Bury Your Gays" trope for the second time in the franchise. Gender issues continue to plague our characters, but what about race? Is the show lacking intersectionality? It appears so. 

Well, half the season is over and next week the show goes for the long reported 10-year time jump with new actors taking over for the older Rhaenyra and Alicent.  I'm nervous but optimistic. For my thoughts on episode 5 watch my video:
