Our Queen has festered for a decade, finally enacting revenge on Rhaenyra to further her own self interests. Too little too late as the House of the Dragon prevails. Her downfall will be epic.
Foul play is destroying everything from the inside! Ten years later and Rhaenyra’s secrets have totally snowballed on her, but the queen is up to no good. She’s attempting to take down Rhaenyra, because all of Rhaenyra’s children are not of her husband, which is treachery! The queen is also trying to push her son Aegon to be king, but she is just out for her own self-interest. It’s undermining the Targaryen family. Then she intentionally/unintentionally has the Hand of the King murdered by his own son. She’s taking things down from the inside. This is going to end poorly for her. The dragons are the key here. They’re the power moves and it’s no coincidence that the Queen’s children really don’t have any dragons. Foul Play blowing up in everyone’s faces. House of the Dragon season 1.
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. Now Prince Aegon threatens to undermine everything.
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.
