After that finale, we all need a negroni. STAT.
Warning: Spoilers for season one of House of the Dragon ahead!
The finale of House of the Dragon leaves Westeros on the brink of war. We’ve witnessed the beginnings of the fated “dance of the dragons” era in which the Targaryen family dukes it out for the iron throne.
The entire battle sequence between Daemon and the Crabfeeder. There is barely any dialogue and yet the tensions are unbearably high. Since Daemon refuses to let the king help him win his war, he decides to embark on what should be a suicide mission. From his fake-out surrender to the moment he drags Prince Drahar from the cave, I was on the edge of my seat. STRESSFUL.
When King Viserys announced his plan to take Alicent Hightower as his new wife, I, along with Princess Rhaenyra, wanted to vomit. This stressed me out for all involved. I was stressed for Viserys having to choose between his daughter's best friend and a 12-year-old, stressed for Alicent being put in this terrible situation, and stressed for Rhaenyra when she found out.
Never. Trust. A. Wedding. In. Westeros. Please, don't even invite me. I'll politely decline (just kidding, I'll definitely be there), but in all seriousness, it's not surprising that Laenor and Rhaenyra's big day was a catastrophe. This wasn't exactly the Red Wedding that shook the ground beneath Game of Thrones fans' feet, but it was up there.
In the season finale, Lucerys' final moments are a tough watch. He's being taunted and chased by Aemond on dragonback and, though it appears Aemond only wants to make Luke repay his debt of losing an eye (no big!), big mama dragon Vhagar goes rogue and fatally attacks Lucerys and Arrax. This is why we can't have nice things.
