Prelude to the approaching battle: nonetheless throughout the partitions of the fortress of Harrenhal, Daemon (Matt Smith) is stunned in the course of a moderately disturbing dream. Completely consumed by yet one more imaginative and prescient of a youthful Rhaenyra – the actress from season 1 was clearly lacking from the producers – the prince coldly decapitates her ghost. Awakening.

Not an awesome temper at this time! Especially since a raven has arrived. The Green military has tripled in dimension, and is now advancing in the direction of Harrenhal, beheading – for actual this time – all those that refuse to undergo King Aegon II (Ty Tennant). They are actually on the gates of Rook's Rest.the house of the Staunton home.

On the Peyredragon facet, we’re struggling… The battle between the Greens and the Blacks now appears inevitable – it’s with these final phrases that episode 3 of season 2 of House of the Dragon. And Rhaenyra (Emma D'Arcy), lastly feeling higher, decides to drag out all of the stops by sending a dragon to assault Cole's (Fabien Frankel) troops.

She is aware of now that it’s the solely solution to make up for the delay attributable to her current absence. But nonetheless haunted by the demise of her son, the queen fingers over the management of her battle council to Lord Corlys Velaryon (Steve Toussaint) and it’s Rhaenys (Eve Best) who volunteers to fly to the Stauntons' assist together with her dragon Meleys.

A betrayal of the very best order

But on the Green facet, Aemond (Ewan Mitchell) and Ser Criston Cole have set a horrible entice towards Rhaenys. When she arrives on her majestic dragon, Ser Criston makes the drums beat. Everyone will get excited: archers and crossbowmen hearth, awakening the fury of the creature, which burns every thing in its path. While the battle appears to be delivering favor of the Blacks, the techniques of the 2 males are revealed: they’re making ready to ship Prince Aemond on the again of Vhagar, the oldest, largest, and most harmful dragon alive – elegant and terrifying on display screen –, making Meleys appear to be a two-day-old dragon. The two clans (lastly) take out their weapons of mass destruction for a high-flying combat.

But to our nice delight (not that of the characters, thoughts you!), nothing goes as deliberate. Before the prince flies away, King Aegon II – most likely grumpy after his final dialog together with his mom, who confesses to him that “nothing is expected of him” – seems on the again of a dragon, with out figuring out something in regards to the technique put in place by his brother. Quickly attacked by Rhaenys, he falters, earlier than seeing Vhagar seem, who appears to fly to his rescue. The dance of the dragons has begun.

If Aegon believes himself saved by the looks of his one-eyed brother, it’s with out relying on the latter's rage, grasping for energy. And how good it’s to listen to him pronounce the well-known “Dracarys” to launch the hearth of his pleasant flying creature within the route of the latter, whose dragon, Feux-du-Soleyl, comes to finish its race within the coronary heart of the forest, carrying King Aegon in the direction of a future that may very well be described as deadly.

Rhaenys might then cease there, flip round, savor this victory. But she does nothing of the kind. A high-flying warrior, “the queen who never was” delivers a heroic battle, earlier than being taken without warning by Prince Aemond and his immense dragon, hidden behind a tower of the Staunton fort. Vhagar, irremediably stronger, devours Melys, leaving his brave and constant mistress to enter a dizzying fall from which she is not going to return. An excellent scene and a shot of Rhaenys' final look, which provides actress Eve Best an ending as grandiose as it’s poignant.

Later, a very disoriented Cole joins Aegon on the crash web site of the royal dragon. He finds Prince Aemond there, his sword drawn. Could the king be lifeless? Spoiler within the spoiler: if we’re to imagine George RR Martin's books, Aegon II ought to nonetheless be alive, however not in a position to reign… However, Cole's face appears to inform us that the king is not any extra. Suspense!
