Why Lord Caswell and Rhaenyra's Scene Is So Important in 'House of the Dragon'

“House of the Dragon”the hit prequel to “Game of Thrones”, has become one of the most acclaimed series in recent months. And it is that each episode hooks the followers of this universe more and shows exciting moments, as happened in the episode 8 of the first seasonairs Sunday, October 9 on HBO Max.

The episode titled “The Lord of the Tides” (“The Lord of the Tides”, 1×08) not only anticipated the exciting season 1 finalealso showed us an important scene that foreshadows Lord Caswell’s continued devotion to Rhaenyra and greater division within the kingdom.

Lord Caswell was last seen in episode 6 of the first season of “House of the Dragon”, shortly after Rhaenyra had just given birth to Joffery. Caswell greets Rhaenyra warmly and pledges her service. So what does the scene from episode 8 of the HBO Max series mean? Here we tell you.

Episode 8 of Season 1 of “House of the Dragon” showed Lord Caswell’s engagement to Rhaenyra more than six years after his last appearance at King’s Landing. This is how the enduring support he has for King Viserys’ chosen heir to the Iron Throne is shown.

This is how Rhaenyra has the enduring loyalty of much of the public and the unwavering loyalty of Lord Caswell of Bitterbridge. This was consolidated into a brief scene from “House of the Dragon” that has a lot of relevance.

Lord Caswell’s devotion to Rhaenyra is an embodiment of the kingdom’s division before the coming Targaryen Civil War. After the death of King Viserys, House Hightower and the Greens come together to work out their plan for the succession to the Iron Throne, as depicted in George RR Martin’s ‘Fire & Blood’.

According to Screenrant, an important meeting will take place in Episode 9 of Season 1 of “House of the Dragon” titled “The Green Council”. Here, the Greens see Lord Caswell and other Rhaenyra supporters as a threat to the elected heir to the throne, the son of Alicent, Aegon II or Aegon the Elder.

Additionally, it shows House Hightower consolidating his power and all the issues that pose a challenge to Aegon II’s coronation.

Caswell’s loyalty to Rhaenyra and the Blacks results in a quick end, as his head is mounted on a stake for all to see above the city gates.
