WATCH: My Reaction to House of the Dragon Ep9
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 was bad blood, but now he’s keeping the best interests of the family in mind. Aemon has taken his place as an imminent threat, although this “new” king will be the first to fall. Too much prosperity has left Westeros prone to attack, mainly from within. Prince Aemon 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.
