House of the Dragon ep 4 speculations: Things are getting heated and more complicated in the House of the Dragons. The action picked up in Episode 3 of HBO’s much-anticipated Game of Thrones spinoff series after a lot of political maneuvering and familial turmoil in the first two episodes.
The action picked up in Episode 3 of HBO’s much-anticipated Game of Thrones spinoff series after a lot of political maneuvering and familial turmoil in the first two episodes. In the meantime, individuals were trying to corrupt King Viserys (Paddy Considine) and his daughter Rhaenyra (Milly Alcock) for various reasons, so neither of them appeared to truly enjoy their hunt in the Kingswood the episode 3.
By the episode’s end, However, Viserys and Rhaenyra had reached a shaky understanding with the notion that the princess would be having her own choice of husband.
But how will everything play out in “King of the Narrow Sea,” the fourth episode of House of the Dragon? The answer is “messily,” at least, based on the teaser clip. Let’s analyse it.
The Prophecy of steel
“From my blood comes the Prince Who Was Promised, and he shall be a song of ice and fire,” Rhaenyra reads from the heated-red knife as the teaser starts.
This is the Game of Thrones catspaw dagger that Arya Stark used to slay the Night King. It seems that writing can be seen on it after heating the dagger. Maybe Rhaenyra is interpreting this prophecy from there?
The next episode will talk about the dream in which Aegon the Conqueror had about the White Walkers storming Westeros, and he conquered the continent in part to unite the houses before of the forthcoming conflicts, as Viserys confessed to Rhaenyra at the end of the first episode.
Next, when he peers at the Iron Throne, Otto Hightower (Rhys Ifans) maintains his arrogant demeanour.
We then receive our first devastating gut punch. Daemon got a haircut, so forget about prophecies! What do we think of this new appearance?
Alicent Hightower is worried, but presumably not about Daemon’s hair. After a year has passed since Episode 3, we discover in the trailer that Alicent’s kid Aegon is now three years old. Alicent is most likely not pregnant at this time. Unless a third child is on the way… So, someone please give this poor girl a break.
Balerion the Black Dread’s skull. Even though it may have been a while since we last saw it, the Targaryen housekeepers are really good at keeping the candles lit.
It appears that Viserys will be dealing with Daemon Targaryen’s return to King’s Landing based on how the shots are arranged in the teaser. Daemon informs his brother-daddy while the knights of the Kingsbuard hold him back at swordpoint, “They dubbed me King of the Narrow Sea.” Here, Daemon is sporting his driftwood crown, a cute little nod to Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin.
Next, we observe Boremund Baratheon entertaining Rhaenyra and Ser Criston Cole. Although we have no idea who the young man facing them is, we can infer that it’s Storm’s End based on the Baratheon insignia that can be seen on the wall above Rhaenyra. It’s fascinating that we’ll be seeing the castle in House of the Dragon because we never really got a decent look of it in Game of Thrones.
Rhaenyra and Viserys are still at odds in “King of the Narrow Sea,” despite their reconciliation at the end of “Second of His Name.” She is informed by Viserys that their courting is coming to an end, suggesting that she is still undecided about who she will wed.
