Domeric Stark Posted October 29, 2022 Share Posted October 29, 2022 Good episode. I love how they're showing the intra-familial tensions, setting up for the future. And how Daemon's daughters are getting close with Rhaenyra's sons. Yes as someone mentioned the time lapses can get annoying/confusing - in original GoT you never got the sense that years of the plot had been skipped, so good to see that maybe that'll be less frequent.

The Laenor-consented-to-it is weird though as he seemed to be attached to his family (sister at least) and to knighthood, would you really throw everything away just to bone other men in far-off obscurity (when you are already boning them here in your current station)? Unwelcome plot development. On 10/3/2022 at 7:21 AM, Ser Graymax said: 6/10 We get it. Allicent is evil, wicked, mean and nasty, she is quite beautiful though, at least the actress is. Rhaeneyra is a washed out old maid in comparison. JMHO. To each his own - I prefer Rhaenyra's beauty to allicent's, and in the case of both actresses the casting matches their young versions extremely well, which is a credit to the casting bureau. I think the entire season hinges on Daemon's (Matt Smith) performance, tbh sometimes I skip through the 10 minutes of childbirth soap-opera-ish scenes etc that House of the Dragon likes to focus on. I liked the framing of 'degenerate and melancholic but still has a good side' which was shown where they contrasted Daemon's decision to not cut the baby out of Laena to King Viserys' opposite decision at the start of the season.
