House of the Dragon S1.E4 Recap: Rhaenyra Queen of Lies, Viserys’s Costly Mistake, Otto’s Next Move

Rhaenyra gets a wakeup call and makes her first move to secure power.

For episode four, I discuss Rhaenyra’s huge scandal and why it reveals she’s not yet mature enough for the throne. The other significant moves from this week’s House of the Dragon review include:

  • Viserys’s bold move to remove Otto Hightower as Hand and why it may be a costly mistake
  • Why the reunion between Alicent and Rhaenyra might already be fractured
  • Daemon’s grooming of Rhaenyra
  • Rhaenyra’s excellent lying ability

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the episode and make sure to tune in every Monday for new House of the Dragon content!
