"SECOND OF HIS NAME"
Written by Elliot Lines / September 7, 2022
After King Viserys chose his new wife to be at the end of the previous episode and Daemon finds an unlikely ally. We jump forward to see how this has affected all involved.
Alicent Hightower has already brought one heir to the throne, and is now carrying another potential heir. It seems as though Rhaenyra still doesn't want to be a part of this family, also not wanting to find a husband to strengthen the Targaryen line. All these characters are building an arc through these time jumps, with the show making plenty of progress on this storyline.
But the talking point of the episode is Daemon. He is losing the war against the crab feeder (despite the dragons). After he hears word that his brother is to help, he goes on a mad, killing spree, risking his life to rid the world of this enemy. This particular scene is quite frankly up there with some of the best in Game Of Thrones, with Matt Smith going on a villainous type rampage.
