‘House of the Dragon’ ends with a beheading and a big misunderstanding

Warning: Spoilers ahead for episode 8 of House of the Dragon.

It was a tense and awkward family reunion during episode 8 of House of the Dragon with the title “Lord of the Tides” when the whole family gathered in Westeros to decide who will be the next Lord of Driftmark and the leader of House Velaryon. All the drama and arguing came to one mainwhen the sea serpent’s brother, Vaemond Velaryon, said the one thing no one should say.

Vaemond, who was largely opposed to Rhaenyra’s sons being heirs to the throne, screamed, “And gods be damned, I will not see it end because of this… Her children are bastards! And she is a whore! “

“I want your tongue for that,” said King Viserys. Though before he could rise, Daemon (the king’s brother) chopped off the top half of Vaemond’s head cleanly, saying, “He can hold his tongue.”

Daemon unexpectedly and shockingly cutting off Vaemond’s head was everything House of the Dragon fans live for, so there were many comments on Twitter from viewers praising Daemon:

However, fans’ joy was short-lived as the episode ended with King Viserys on his deathbed mistaking Alicent for Princess Rhaenyra and telling her that he believes in Aegon I’s Song of Ice and Fire prophecy about “the prince that was promised” . .”

“It’s you,” Viserys tells Alicent, assuming it’s Rhaenyra. “You are the one. You have to do this.” In Viserys’ mind, he tells Rhaenyra that he believes she is the one who will unite the realm and carry on the Targaryen line. However, Alicent thinks the king is speaking to her, referring to their son Aegon II, saying he should be the heir to the throne.

Does that sound confusing? Well, apparently it was to Alicent, who is seen in the preview for next week’s episode saying, “He told me he wanted Aegon to be king.” So this small, but big, misunderstanding is apparently what’s going to lead to the Dance of the Dragons and next week’s epic drama.

House of the Dragon sent on Sundays at 21.00 HBO.
