Milly Alcock and Emily Carey really breathed life into their characters. I love that the director of this episode really let some moments linger so you could feel their internal struggle, like when Rhaenyra has to turn away from Criston after he asks her to run away together. You could see the conflicting emotions play out before she turns back around and reaffirms her desire to be queen.

Then in the years we don't see I'm sure she was drawn to him, but she never acted on it, cause that's what she believed was the right thing, that's how she (and women like her) was raised to be/act. Sooo when Daemon told her that you can actually take control over your own life and sexuality (and get pleasure from that), and then left her waiting (for more from him)... Criston Cole was right there for the taking, so she decided to finally act on her crush on him. Yeah, it was purely physical for her, cause she was, is and always will be in love with Daemon... but for Cole it appears to have been more than mere sexual attraction.

This episode is about Alicent, she "lights the way" with that green dress, sending the message to her family that she will fight for her house's interests and will embody their values to the max. In these episode she realizes and supports the motives of her father to get her son into the iron throne. I do believe that the Hightowers and Maesters have been planning to get into power to erase the incestuous and magical traditions that come with the Targaryen family. Alicent feels betrayed and treated as a fool by the King Viserys and Rhaenyra...the bonds are already broken and soon enough the seeds of war will bloom and when they do they'll cry blood.

Absolutely love that we finally see more of villain part of Daemon, remember that GRRM himself said he could be both a hero and a villain. Also, Rhaenyra and Alicent are now both firmly in the race against one another to be the first lady of the realm and the court. The idea is that both sides are neither fully good nor fully bad, and this episode really captures it. Alicent abandons any loyalty to Rhaenyra, feeling betrayed and also she realizes that between her children and her friend, she is a mother now first and foremost. That realization on her face when Otto tells her to choose had me thinking of that epic sentence : "When you play the Game of Thrones you win or you die". Great episode !!

@betyerpwet Yıl önce
Alicent's grand entrance is a statement in it's own not needing any words to say what she wants say. I think her green dress not only represent her family banners, but also that she is so green in envy with Rhaenyra who, not only gets to do and have things Alicent the queen can not, but can get away with things she is not supposed to do. Alicent has always made sure that Rhaenyra lives up to be the ruler she is meant to be, but I think she is realizing how Rhaenyra just doesn't give the crown the regard she does. Alicent plays by the rules and Rhaenyra doesn't and yet she seems to be having more fun without facing any true consequences to her wrong actions. I think this pushes Alicent over the edge and is consumed by envy because she has never been as free to love and choose as Rhaenyra.

The only complain I have with the episode was the way the significance of the color green was thrown in in the moment. It would have been much weightier (and more GOT like) if the significance was thrown in earlier seemingly randomly, maybe as a conversation earlier between Otto and Viserys, for the audience to then see Alicent dressed in green and be in awe as they made the connection themselves. Leaves a much greater impression. Other than that, solid episode
@zaraa.2198 Yıl önce
I don't know why a lot of people aren't saying this, but to me, Alicent's changed stance and so-called 'declaration of war' against Rhaenyra had more to do with how Rhaenyra inadvertently used her to remove Otto from his station leaving her alone in a tricky situation with very few allies.. and NOT because she was lied to or jealous of Rhaenyra's freedom. Plus, Otto was right. Rhaenyra's claim will be challenged and she will come for Alicent's children to secure it.

@user-nv2wt4hi8t Yıl önce
Honestly, I hope they keep Cole morally grey, capable of good and bad. I actually do understand him a lot so far in the show. From his perspective, Rhaenyra has whined and sooked and complained about every duty to do with her oncoming marriage, from openly running away from celebratory hunts where she should be with helping represent the Royal family, dismissing the entire remaining list of potential suitors Alicent and her father arranged, and then consciously losing her virtue to Criston, having totally disregarded his oath, his vows and his honour by kissing him twice, locking him in her room, undressing him and doing all of this after he asked her to stop, simply because she wanted to get off and pleasure herself at his expense. When he then gave her, admittedly a totally unrealistic, impossible offer, she didn't even think twice before suddenly bringing up those same responsibilities she had such an issue with for years (and despite happily throwing his out the window) and now was suddenly ready to play the part of the princess fully committed to doing her duty when all he's ever seen is her chafing at it and finding every issue with what's expected of her. Add in that Alicent would have told Criston about how Rhaenyra totally forsook her own honour by lying to her about her virtue, and then repeating these behaviours by possibly birthing 3 bastards (with the proof in the pudding with their features and her relationship with Harwin) who will sit the throne, it makes so much more sense why Cole would be so infuriated by her.

Whoa I was NOT expecting Cole to react like that and literally explode! That was terrible for poor Laenor. But did ser Criston really believe Rhaenyra would have just eloped with him?? Come on ser Criston! Poor Viserys had yet another feast ruined and is sick, the guy just can't catch a break :( as for Alicent, I gotta say I see her reasons and I feel for her, though I am team Blacks.

This show was very, very go up until now. It just passed into the realm of amazing with this episode. All hell will break loose after this episode, just like it did in GOT after episode 5. The tradition is kept, I hope they will keep it as far as episodes 9 go as well. I hate Criston Cole, I hate Larys Strong. I love Harwin Strong, I love Rhaenys Targaryen. Those are one of the things this episode underlined. I love the direction they took with the Rhaenyra/Cole affair, I love the choice they did there. Since I read Fire and Blood a few times now, I did not expect to feel any other way at this point, so that is great.

Gonna miss Milly and Emily, but I do look forward to seeing them on the big screens in the future! Also excited to welcome Emma and Olivia in the next episode. HOTD is seriously getting better with each episode. Also dang, Ramin Djawadi is truly the goat!
Moment of the episode : When Alicent confronts Ser Criston with that night's details, and Ser Criston unaware of what she would ask ends up telling the actual truth she had no clue of. That expression on Alicent's face clearly states she was in shock and more, saddened. I think she has a soft corner in her heart for Ser Criston. As we also see in the last scene when she stops him for killing himself.
@gopipavi9653 Yıl önce
It's not soft corner for Ser Criston..It's sympathizing with him and the mutual feeling of how the Targaryens have used them ...like how their entire existence and purpose is now tied to the Targaryen vices...that oaths or precedence or traditions don't matter...that they (Targaryens) are the law and perhaps even the seven God's only answered their prayers...that's why Alicent/Cole are seen mostly in the Godswood than in the sept in their most vulnerable moments.
@markmywords3817 Yıl önce
Alicent is no innocent either. She kept a secret from Rhaenyra as well, having secret "talks" with Viserys in order to further their own family line. She wouldn't be torn between her family and Targaryens if it weren't for his scheming father. She very much well could've stayed friends with Rhaenyra if she didn't marry Viserys.
@@gopipavi9653 I liked your perspective. Quite right in fact. Rhaenyra is pretty cool about continuing things as they were going with Cole but he clearly felt being used by the Princess. That look on Cole's face when watching Rhaenyra dance with Laenor. was impactful. Think this is gonna create resentment for Rhaenyra in Ser Criston's mind. Looks like he would be in the Green party soon enough.

That was an amazing episode and I was on the edge of my seat waiting for chaos to ensue. So happy the green dress appeared. Christon Cole has a deep sense of honor and I was so glad he was stopped from his guilt trip
If he values his honor more he wouldn't have slept with Rhaenyra in the first place. Also, running off with Rhaenyra and marrying her wouldn't have restored his honor. In fact, it would have made things worse.
@KillerTacos54 Yıl önce
Fantastic, brilliant episode. This show continues to blow me away with each episode! Seeing the classic heavily political drama that GoT started at has me more excited than I've ever been! The only thing I will say is that I felt Criston's turn could've been a bit more subtle/gradual, instead it felt a bit too fast. But given the pacing of the show I can completely understand why it had to be a little quick. That being said, everything else was brilliant, really nothing other than praise comes to mind. Man, I'm going to miss Emily and Milly so much!! But I'm very excited to see the new actresses
I know the end, from the book, so no spoilers to the ones that do not know, I just enjoy how they have done it ,so far, I love it, can't wait to see how they will do it till the end. I do not think there will be more than 2 seasons, with the tempo story is going, and that will be perfect to be honest. Great story telling, characters, atmosphere , every frame could be a picture on the wall, I love it. I would like a prequel of the time before they went to the Westeros, when they were in old Valyria, how all of that looked. That period is much of the mystery...and I love dragons, to be honest XD
It would be wonderful if in season 2, Mily and Emily come back for some flashbacks. Very good acting from both of them.

Had Rhaenyra been born male, what she did with Ser Criston wouldn’t have meant anything, but because she’s a woman she’s expected to be ‘chaste’. I found this episode intriguing to see both young women develop their characters & how Rhaenyra is a modern woman in a rather backwards setting.

Had Ser Criston in this case would be born as a woman, let's say Lady Cristina, and somehow would be elevated to the position of the Kingsguard, what potential male Rhaenyra did to potential Lady Cristian would be clearly discussed as the an obvious abuse of power.

Team Green all life! The actors who play Otto, Alicent and Criston are great! Can’t wait to see all the other greens in action like Ser Tyland Lannister, Lord Larys Strong, Aegon II and his siblings, Lord Jasper Wylde and Gran Maester Orwyle
the last shot left me with goosebumps. its bareley switched into 2nd ger and this show is in my opinon will becoe the better show. 1 because it is a cooler period 2. the show runners give a shit 3. they've got the right amount of money/backing to properly sell the world of ice and fire. It's hard to judge HotD against season 1 of thrones, just merley because that first book is very rich and methodical with it's developments and the transisition from book to show was bound to succeed simply because of how good the source material. Having said that this show is more colourful and lore heavy. Which is a must in these fantasy shows and is kinda why The rings of power (tRoP) hasn't really failed yet. The emphasis on lore really drags in fans just because of how grand most fantasy lore's/mythos can be. Love this show it's topping tRoP by a mile. When this show ends, ill legit be praying for some Aegon the conqueror/Valaryia spin off show. Like I reckon GRR martin is really happy and thrilled to be apart of these shows, where he's allowed to build upon hs own works/world. Like the whole dagger thing i reckon will be mention in the up coming books. im waffling. fuck

Otto trying to take his part as a Hightower(probably to outdo his older brother by placing his daughter as a wife to the king to make his heir to be a future king). the contrasts between the Lannister twins (the wise and the arrogant) and larys and Harwin strong . one the muscle and other the “brain”. ❤❤❤.

I get that this show is fundementally paced differently than the GOOD part of GoT, mainly in its time jumps between episodes. I also understand that characters who are dragon riders can pretty much be on one end of Westeros at the beginning of the episode and then be on the other at the end. That said, I'm really taken out of the story when they do these time jumps in the middle of an episode. The bronze bitch's cousin just shows up at the wedding, accusing Daemon of killing her. Not only did that part fail to make sense, but both HER murder, and his appearance at the wedding, just felt really out of place.

In what world would you feel bad for Criston after what he did, just wait til you see the rest of the season😂
I mean, his idea to run off with Rhaenyra was kind of foolish. Your idea was to run off with the King's daughter, you assume she would leave her dragon (which she loves to ride) and her position. Corlys would be upset and presumably Rhaenys may have gone to look for her, Daemon has some connection with her as well so he would have been up in the air. Viscerys would have sent people to look for them. It's possible they could have disappeared but not an absolute. Rhaenyra wasn't going to be happy as the wife of a trader or sell sword. He already disobeyed his vows of chastity, running off with Rhaenyra certainly wouldn't bring back his honor.

@Jptm26 Yıl önce
Great episode! The only minor gripes I have with it are: 1- The need to explain the green dress. It should be something that was introduced to us earlier in the episode or the season, so that when she walks in with the green dress, we as an audience pick up on the meaning right away. 2- Criston's "confession" to Alicent. It was one of those tropes of one character talking about one thing without using specific details or names, so that the other character miss interprets and revels something different. I just think that could have been better worked out, maybe he tells her he knows nothing about Daemon, but that he was the one to have sex with her. Still, everything else is very close to perfect, love all the subtle looks, the subtext in each sentence or characters actions, very well done
@Aemond2024 Yıl önce
totally agree on 1, but for 2 feel the misunderstaning works perfectly in this case. Alicent wants to be very delicate in choosing her words, since she discusses a princesses virtue with a lowly kingsguard, and Cole is ridden with grief and perhaps guilt he breaks.
