Before the episode began, viewers were already aware that King Viserys (Paddy Considine) had suffered a severe flesh-eating infection.

At the start of episode three (set two years after the previous episode), the infection had worsened to the point where the king had lost two fingers.

In one scene from episode three, Considine’s character can be briefly seen wearing a green glove over the two fingers which are supposed to be missing.

The glove would have been used by the production team to simplify the process of removing two of his fingers with CGI.

“Not the green screen glove on Viserys’s missing fingers,” wrote Twitter user Sarah Capps, alongside a screenshot of the moment.

“The CGI team soo focused on the dragons they missed the small details,” joked one commenter.

“I thought I was going crazy, thank you,” wrote another.

House of the Dragon continues every week on HBO Max in the US, and Sky and NOW in the UK.
