Two weeks ago, Hadrian teased Matty about maybe misunderstanding why Iris didn’t want him bugging her. In this scene, Matty has just asked Iris out on a date, also during work hours.
“I’m so sorry.” [Iris’s] disappointment sounded genuine. “I’m working.”
“A scheduling error, surely,” Hadrian said. “I’ll have it corrected.” As Iris stared at the king in shock, he joked, “I have some pull with your supervisor.”
