We’re approaching mid-season in Home of the Dragon and issues are getting actual. With three eventful episodes now within the books, we’ve seen births, marriages, deaths, betrayals, our first style of a correct battle, however surprisingly little nudity and the way’s-your-father.
This Targaryen household drama – set 200 years earlier than the occasions depicted in Sport of Thrones – is all concerning the succession to the throne of King Viserys (Paddy Considine) and it’s getting correct tasty.
The succession plan has set the cat amongst the pigeons at King’s Touchdown. The King, recent from shedding his spouse and new child son in childbirth, has controversially chosen a brand new inheritor – his daughter Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy).
Regardless that he’s quickly obtained a brand new son, by his daughter’s greatest pal and new spouse no much less, Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) stays subsequent in line to the Iron Throne. That’s regardless of a lot meddling from the foremost homes (Lannisters are right here being arseholes already) and the objections of the King’s brother Daemon (Matt Smith).
He’s been exiled from the King’s Courtroom and he’s taken his dragon and gone to Dragonstone, the household’s ancestral residence, which you’ll keep in mind from the latter seasons of GoT as being vital. He’s now combating to rid the realm of pirates in conjunction with Corlys aka ‘The Sea Snake’, the richest bloke round.
The top of Episode 3 noticed Daemon act boldy (earlier than the King’s fleet got here to bail out a failing marketing campaign) to defeat the evil Crabfeeder. That victory got here regardless of being shot by arrows and one way or the other evading about two million others.
