17 “Cute” TV Relationships That Really Aren’t Cute At All
Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo, Game of Thrones
Khal Drogo is widely regarded as one of the best hangs in all of Game of Thrones. He starts out seeming like a murderous monster, and we eventually see how warm and caring he is toward Daenerys. On the night of their wedding, though, Drogo rapes her. That fact is one which is hard to overcome.
It may be true that Drogo didn’t know any better, but it’s still a terrible, unforgivable fact. At the very least, it makes the tragedy of Drogo’s death a little more complicated. Maybe Dany really did love him by the time he died. Even so, it’s hard to forgive him for his earlier sins.
