No need for explanations let’s dive right in. I think there’s an obvious choice tonight!
This Week’s Winner: Otto Hightower
Ser Otto Hightower, you played the winning hand.
Otto’s very creepy move of having his teenage daughter hang out with the still grieving King Viserys paid off by Alicent and Viserys getting engaged. This isn’t a good thing, but it’s definitely a win for Otto.
Do I Ship It?
Still living for Rhaenyra and Alicent, now with a sexy step mom complication!
Also, love Rhaenyra just giving her crush Ser Cristen a spot in The Kingsguard cause she can. I’m gonna go write some fic about it.
I feel like Misaria and Daemon have a rough road ahead of them, but those two crazy kids might just make it!
Dragons Are Great
Did you know that Targaryens used to have Dragon Eggs in their baby cradles? THAT’S REALLY FUCKING COOL. We learn this because Daemon claims Misaria is pregnant and he needs an egg. (She’s not, he’s just being kind of a butthead.)
When Otto threatens Daemon, Caraxes almost attacks, until Rhaenyra and Syrax show up. And I get so excited because I love dragons.
Queen Alicent Hightower Is The Prettiest
I don’t have a lot to say on this matter, I just think she’s super pretty and I think I love her more than Sansa and even Margaery.
Hey! I Know That Guy!
Did I realize Simon Pegg was going to be on this show? Nope! Am I psyched that he is? YUP!
COOL. I love the locks and sound effects.
But In The Book…
I got Fire & Blood from the library this week and I’m diving into it today. I will soon become insufferable again saying, “Well, in the books…” so I hope you’re ready for THAT!
