Throughout the episode titled “The Black Queen”, it is shown a clear tension between Rhaenyra and Daemon Targaryen. As she considered the terms offered by Otto Hightower, her husband was ready to take over the Hand of the King and start the war.

On the one hand, Rhaenyra Targaryen didn’t want to rush into starting a civil war, since he wanted to keep the promise he made to his father, King Viserys Targaryen, to keep the kingdom united. According The Prophecy of the Song of Ice and FireWesteros must be united against the evil that would come north of the wall. Rhaenyra knew that a war would leave them in pieces.

On the contrary, Daemon wanted to start the clashes of war, he was absent during Rhaenyra’s sufferings and even attacked her when she tells him of Aegon the Conqueror’s dream. It could be because he always dreamed of the iron throne and marrying Rhaenyra was the sure way to get itbut now another obstacle arises with the usurpation of Aegon II Targaryen.

Although he is a character with a lot of gray, in his darkest tones, has done ruthless acts to get what he wantssuch as killing his first wife, Rhea Royce, and attempting to tarnish Rhaenyra’s honor by marrying her to him.

Since the previous episodes, we had noticed la distance entre Rhaenys et Rhaenyra Targaryenbecause of the suspicion that he had been the responsible for the Death of Laenor Velaryon. However, as they shared blood in common – the daughters of Laena – ‘The Queen That Never Was’, she decided not to support the Greens, even though that didn’t mean he’d side with niggers.

The one who used to wholeheartedly side with Rhaenyra and Daemon, was Corlys Velaryon, qui recovered from his serious injuries. However, he offered not to participate in the war and to live quietly in Driftmark with his granddaughters.

To the surprise of many, and even her own husband, Rhaenys decided to support Rhaenyra Targaryen, due to how she had seen her handling the situation. since he learned of the Hightower’s betrayal.

As Daemon and the rest of the Council urged her to act frontally, she wanted to prevent a massacre and the destruction of the kingdom. For Rhaenys Targaryen, it would have been a true sign that she was made to sit on the iron throne.

Lucerys Velaryon goes to Storm’s End, stronghold of House Baratheon, to convince Lord Borros to support Rhaenyra Targaryen in defending her right to the Iron Throne. Initially, we thought that it would be the easiest tripsince they shared blood due to Princess Rhaenys Targaryen’s mother.

Landing in the courtyard of the palace, young Velaryon realizes that Vhagar and Aemond Targaryen were there. His uncle, who had lost an eye because of him, was present and tried to convince Borros Baratheon to support the Greens. Aemond tried to start a fight, but was stopped by the head of the house, who ordered Lucerys to be escorted to her dragon.

Lucerys immediately set off on his dragon, Arrax, which was already shaken by the strong electrical storm that was developing and the presence of the gigantic Vhagar. If it hadn’t been for such weather, the prince probably could have got away with it unscathed.

Aemond followed him on his dragon and began a tense pursuit, demanding an eye in exchange for the one he had lost. Even though Lucerys skillfully manages to evade them, when he is between rocks where Vhagar cannot enter due to his large size, Arrax had already become very nervous for the whole situation. being a small young dragonfelt threatened and disobeyed his rider, attack the beast of aemond. It also threw Vhagar out of controlwho began to pursue Arrax again, despite Aemond ordering him to stop.

When we thought the fight was over, as Lucerys and his dragon rose above the clouds, VHagar appeared and in one bite–showing its large size compared to other dragons– slain Lucerys Velaryon and his beast. At that moment, Aemond realized what he had just done and her face showed fear of what it meant. It should be mentioned that the accident differs from the original version of “Fire and Blood”.

After the scene where Lucerys Velaryon dies, we are transported to Dragonstone, where Rhaenyra Targaryen is still arguing with her Council over the best strategy to adopt in a possible war.

The moment Daemon Targaryen walks into the room, the queen looks at him, because knows something is wrong. When he finally informs her of her son’s death, Rhaenyra bursts into tears, but soon pulls herself together and turns to look at the camera.

His eyes, full of anger, pain and hatred, communicate to the public that all desire to keep the peace has faded away. The Greens claimed the first life of Targaryen, Rhaenyra’s own son, so now she was ready to destroy them in the war known as the Dance of the Dragons.
