King Viserys has his full hands all over Westeros. As Corlys warned, Crabfeeder is making waves on the Steps. Corlys was angry that some of his ships were lost. He wants to take the Steps by force and take down Crabfeeder once and for all. At the small council meeting, Viserys did not want to start a war too close to the Free Cities.

Rhaenrya speaks up during the meeting and reveals that they have a dragon rider that can be a demonstration of strength against Crabfeeder. Otto advises against this, and the rest of the men don’t take her seriously. Rhaenyra is sent to select the next new member of the Kingsguard. Immediately, she was attracted to Ser Criston Cole and chose him. Otto told her not to rush, but she made her decision.

Alicent continued to spend time with Viserys. He wondered what Rhaenyra was doing after her mother’s death. Alicent encourages him to talk to his daughter and hopes they can mend their relationship. Viserys asked Alicent not to mention their conversations. He didn’t think Rhaenyra would understand them.

After that, Alicent and Rhaenyra had a private conversation. Rhaenyra did not think that her father’s intentions in choosing her as his successor were entirely pure. She believes that he only chose her to shun Daemon. Alicent asks Rhaenyra to pray with her and give Rhaenyra space to let emotions destroy her for a brief moment. Rhaenyra admitted that she wanted her father to see her as more than just his little daughter.

Rhaenys warns Rhaenyra about her future

Corlys and Rhaenys ask to see Viserys. Corlys tells Viserys that their enemies are keeping an eye on the Red Keep, especially after the queen’s death and Daemon’s capture of Dragonstone without resistance. Rhaenys added that the crown looks vulnerable at the moment. Corlys wants to unite House Targaryen and Velaryon. Corlys and Rhaenys offered their young daughter, Laena, as Viserys’ second wife. They urged him to marry again and produce more heirs. Viserys was clearly hesitant about the idea.

Rhaenyrs and Viserys try to get on the same page at dinner. She mentioned speaking up during the small council meeting, but he quickly told her she would soon learn how to do politics. Viserys then brought the idea of ​​Rhaenys and Corlys to Otto. Otto immediately thought that Corlys had gone too far. All Viserys wanted to know was whether it was a solid idea. While Otto noted that Viserys marrying Laena would unite the two great Valyrian houses, Viserys feared what Rhaenyra might think.

Viserys walks with young Laena as Corlys, Rhaenys and Rhaenyra watching. In a speech that was clearly rehearsed, Laena told Viserys it would be a “great honor” to join their house. 12-year-old boy promises to have “many children”. Viserys is well aware that this is wrong. This girl is a child.

Rhaenys asked Rhaenyra if this whole situation with Viserys finding another wife bothered her. Rhaenyra was caught off guard by the poll. Rhaenys fully admitted that it annoyed her, but she understood the order of things. Rhaenys told Rhaenyra: “I’m not sure you know. Rhaenys doesn’t say much when it comes to what the future holds for Rhaenyra. Viserys will marry again and will likely produce a male heir. Men in this world would want her half-siblings to rule over her.

“When I am queen, I will create a new order,” declared Rhaenyra. Rhaenys quipped that men would rather carry torches to the Kingdom than let women take the throne. “And your father is not stupid,” she added.

Rhaenyra’s Show Of Force was a success

Viserys brought up the topic of marriage to Alicent. He’s still worried about what to do. Alicent gave him a dragon made of stone as a gift. Otto interrupted their conversation because of an urgent small council meeting. Daemon, who took possession of Dragonstone, stole a dragon egg and called himself “the rightful heir” in a letter he left to Viserys. Daemon claims he has taken a second wife, Mysaria, and she is having children. His wedding in two days.

Rhaenyra asked which dragon egg Daemon stole. It was Dreamfyre, the one she chose for Prince Baelon’s cradle. Viserys wanted to go to Dragonstone, but Otto refused to allow him. He will go instead.

Otto arrives at Dragonstone. Daemon approached and threw the dragon egg in his hand recklessly. Otto ordered Daemon to stand down. Daemon refused to give up Mysaria. When Otto says that choosing violence means declaring war, Daemon does not object to that opinion. Otto asked if Daemon really wanted it at the expense of Mysaria and his unborn child, and that’s when Daemon drew his sword.

Suddenly, they heard something in the distance. Rhaenyra appears while riding Syrax. She came to stop the bloodshed. She went straight to Daemon without hesitation. They began to speak Valyrian together. Rhaenyra knew that Mysaria wasn’t actually pregnant. “If you want to be reinstated as an heir, you’ll need to kill me,” Rhaenyra told Daemon. She calls Daemon a bluff. He walks away and throws her the dragon egg.

Rhaenyra jumped back to Syrax and ran away, showing Otto Hightower that she knew how to be a leader, a true ruler. Turns out, Daemon’s whole plan was just a ruse. Mysaria was angry at Daemon’s lies. He swore to protect her, and she didn’t feel safe right now. All she wants is to be liberated from fear. She has no interest in participating in all the power and politics of Westeros.

Viserys reveals his new wife

Viserys discussed the matter of marrying Laena with one of his advisors. He was asked to marry Laena and stick Corlys as a long-term ally by his side. In the middle of the discussion, Viserys learns of Rhaenyra’s great confrontation with Daemon. Viserys was clearly annoyed with Rhaenyra. After all, she was his only heir. He decided to use this time to get married again. “I don’t want to alienate us,” Viserys said.

Rhaenyra knew her first duty was to the Kingdom, fully confident that Laena would be his next wife. Viserys announced his intention to take a new wife in front of the small council, and it was not Laena. He will marry Alicent. Corlys got very angry and stormed out.

Alicent looked at Rhaenyra, who was on the verge of tears. Rhaenyra did not say a word to her father or to anyone. She quickly walked out of the room, realizing that her dream was now further out of reach. One of her best friends is now likely to produce male heirs. Rhaenys’ words must have haunted Rhaenyra.

Corlys refused to be ignored. He decided to go see Daemon. He brings up the Steps and how he is denied permission to send his navy there. Corlys doesn’t want its shipping routes to drop. If they did, his house would be paralyzed. He wants to work with Daemon so they can both win. Corlys says that this will be Daemon’s chance to prove his worth to anyone who might doubt it. This game of thrones is even more complicated.
