- The show and competition came to a head when the Ocean Snake’s sibling, Vaemond Velaryon, shouted the one thing no one should speak.
- Fans’ happiness was short-lived, as the episode ended with Ruler Viserys, on his deathbed, mistaking Alicent for Princess Rhaenyra.
It was a strained and abnormal family get-together during Episode 8 of Place of the Mythical serpent named “Lord of the Tides,” as the entire family accumulated in Westeros to figure out who would be the following Ruler of Driftmark and the head of House Velaryon. All the show and contending reached a critical stage when the Ocean Snake’s sibling, Vaemond Velaryon, said the one thing nobody should say.
Vaemond, who was generally against Rhaenyra’s children being main successors to the lofty position, shouted, “And divine beings be doomed, I won’t see it finished on the record of this… Her kids are rats! What’s more, she is a prostitute!”
“I will have your tongue for that,” said Lord Viserys. However, before he could bear upping, Daemon (the Ruler’s sibling) cut the upper portion of Vaemond’s head off perfect and expressed, “He can keep his tongue.”
Daemon startlingly and incredibly cutting Vaemond’s head off was everything Place of the Mythical beast fans live for, there were a ton of remarks on Twitter from watchers commending Daemon.
Nonetheless, the delight of fans didn’t keep going long, as the episode finished with Ruler Viserys, on his deathbed, mistaking Alicent for Princess Rhaenyra, telling her he has confidence in Aegon I’s Melody of Ice and Fire prescience of “the sovereign that was guaranteed.”
“It is you,” expresses Viserys to Alicent, accepting it’s Rhaenyra. “You are the one. You should do this.” In Viserys’ psyche, he is let Rhaenyra know that he takes she is the person who will join the realm and carry on the Targaryen line. Nonetheless, Alicent thinks the Ruler is conversing with her and alluding to their child Aegon II, saying that he ought to be the successor to the lofty position.
Does it sound befuddling? It was to Alicent, who is found in the following week’s episode expressing, “He let me know he wanted for Aegon to be top dog.” So this small yet large misconception is the thing that will prompt the Dance of the Winged serpents and the following week’s awe-inspiring show.
