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.
