House of the Dragon Episode 1 | Succession

Killing the queen for a male heir didn’t work, so why not anoint the first ruling queen over your evil brother? House of the Dragon just popped the Mentos into the soda, so who bleeds next?


Our king sacrificed his queen for a male heir, only to watch both die. Now his eldest daughter must step up and face off with her uncle as rightful heir to the Iron Throne. I’m getting major Succession vibes in a Game of Thrones wrapper, but its still awesome. House of the Dragon season 1 has proven itself bloody, gut wrenching, heart warming, and progressive. They are still knights with swords and dragons, though.

When you have ten dragons, only dragon battles will lead to your downfall. The poison seed in the House of the Dragon is both obvious and secret. We know Daemon is bad blood, but he’s also keeping the best interests of the kingdom in mind. Too much prosperity has left Westeros prone to attack, mainly from within.

Greed and power hunger sink empires, so are we witnessing the beginning of the end? Or is this succession plan the start of a new chapter of bad ass queens ruling with an iron fist? Each decision parallels the future that we know and love, making this show all that more enveloping and interesting. We even got a warning about the coming winter… which may begin sooner than later.
