Alicent Hightower had shed her genteel mask and put the Realm on notice. For my latest deep-dive look at House of the Dragon, I discuss the ramifications of Alicent snapping and the new encouragement from her father Otto. I also break down the fallout from the bloody fight between Rhaenyra and Alicent’s kids, a dangerous new dragon rider, and the subteferge that emerged from Laena’s funeral. Other conversation topics include:
- Why Helaena might be spoiling the series right under our noses
- Did Rhaenyra make another sloppy mistake or a shrewd move in marrying Daemon?
- Learning Larys’ big weakness
- Have Rhaenyra and Daemon made a new enemy with Rhaenys?
Look out for new House of the Dragon episodes following each episode.
