I spy, with my sapphire eye, a world of harm coming for the Hightowers in Home of the Dragon Season 2.
The HBO sequence’ Season 1 finale on Sunday ended with
Princess Queen Rhaenyra receiving the information that her second-born son, Lucerys “Luke” Velaryon, had been killed by a dragon ridden by Alicent’s son, Aemond Targaryen. Although earlier within the episode Rhaenyra had endorsed endurance when making an attempt to determine when and how you can go to battle with the Hightowers, the finale’s remaining moments confirmed a grieving Rhaenyra who clearly desires to avenge her son. (Learn a full recap.)
“Someway, I believe this strikes the objective posts of struggling,” sequence star Emma D’Arcy, who performs Rhaenyra, says within the “Inside S1 E10” featurette obtainable on HBO Max. “When you’ve misplaced each your dad and mom and also you’ve misplaced a lover, you assume grief. And I believe what’s so terrible is that shedding Luke tells her she is aware of nothing about grief, and it adjustments her outlook on the world going ahead.”
Govt producer and co-showrunner Miguel Sapochnik factors out that Luke’s dragon, Arrax, by no means had any actual hope of combating the a lot bigger Vhagar, piloted by Aemond (who earlier within the episode revealed that he’s now sporting a sapphire within the socket beforehand inhabited by the eyeball Luke gouged out years earlier than). The smaller dragon’s solely recourse was to fly quicker and escape. And that’s what appeared like had occurred… till Vhagar went rogue and made a snack out of the smaller beast and his rider.
Aemond cried, “No!” because it occurred and appeared bereft after; Sapochnik says that’s once you’re seeing “the final vestiges of the little boy that’s left in Aemond.”
He provides: “Possibly he was making an attempt to scare Luke, however I don’t assume finally he meant to kill him. However now he’s completed it, and he has to resolve whether or not or not he’s going to personal it in his journey again to King’s Touchdown. As a result of clearly, if usurping the throne and their crowning Aegon within the dragon pit wasn’t the beginning of the battle, killing one of many queen’s sons is.”
