Lord Varys Posted October 25, 2022 Share Posted October 25, 2022 2 minutes ago, The hairy bear said: According to this recent very interesting interview with Condal, the final line of the episode's script is: “Rhaenyra looks up and war is in her eyes.” It's a pitty that the scripts aren't released ater the episode. It is pretty clear she is done doing nothing now, but I don't think she is already in full escalation mode. She will lose more sons, after all. And a mother-in-law. 2 minutes ago, The hairy bear said: One option that they may consider is not to reveal who is behind it. Let the accusations fly around, and avoid revealing who (Rhaenyra, Daemon, or Mysaria) is behind it. But to be honest, I'm convinced they'll have Daemon do it. Nah, Rhaenyra will want to avenge Luke, and I imagine we will also get a Stormlands campaign of some sort now ... but if she authorizes an assassination she is likely to demand Aemond's death - which would both be proper revenge and removing the most dangerous Green dragonrider. Daemon should agree with that - he doesn't want to drag the war out in the show, but gather their strength as quickly as possible and then take KL and put down the Green traitors. But Mysaria - who they will turn to to arrange the assassination - clearly has a motive of her own to get even with Alicent Hightower. She had Larys burn her manse, presumably murdering many of her friends and agents. Among them children - like the one who approached the Cargylls. Which means, of course, that Mysaria is going to target Alicent's grandchildren because they are the only actual children in the Green camp. The whole thing will have little and less to do with Rhaenyra's or Daemon's revenge and more with Mysaria's desires for vengeance. Which I think will work pretty well in context since in the book it simply makes little to no sense as to why Daemon would not target crucial dragonriders in the Green camp and/or King Aegon or crucial court officials like Otto if he had the chance to do it. The show needs to make this work in context, they cannot just go with a weird and pointless episode. MisbornHeir 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
