The following time I would like an disagreeable or unwieldy activity achieved, I’m going to vent about it in Larys Robust’s basic course.
Did you see how shortly Home of the Dragon‘s courtroom lurker made. issues. occur. in Sunday’s episode? And all Queen Alicent needed to do was complain to him about his father’s refusal to accuse Rhaenyra of infidelity along with his brother, Ser Harwin “Breakbones” Robust! That’s effectivity. It’s additionally psychotic.
Inside days, Larys had propositioned a bunch of inmates sentenced to dying, satisfied a number of of them to have their tongues eliminated, gotten all of them kitted up with bad-guy hoods and snazzy bee brooches, and pulled off an arson plan that regarded like an accident. And oh, would you have a look at that, the hearth simply occurred to kill Larys’ dad and brother, leaving the Hand of the King place extensive open! (Learn a full recap of Episode 6 right here.)
So Larys is a type of Sport of Thrones‘ Lord Varys crossed with that present’s Littlefinger? I suppose that’s somebody good — or, a minimum of, helpful — to have in your aspect, Alicent… so far as characters like which might be on anybody’s aspect however their very own. However oof, what a harmful, loose-cannon participant, eh?
A number of extra ideas on the episode:
* Talking of Larys, how does he not look a lot totally different after the 10-year time leap? Plotting retains you younger?
* Ditto for Ser Criston.
* Perhaps the king absorbed all of their oldness? I child, however man, he regarded like he was one foot within the grave for a lot of the hour, no?
* Again to Criston: Anybody else chilled by how viciously he speaks of Rhaenyra now, and the way starkly his hatred of her — based mostly on her spurning him years earlier than — contrasts with the candy manner he was along with her earlier within the season?
* First Rhea Royce, now Laena Velaryon: Once more this present has given us scant time with a seemingly kickass girl, who’s now useless. At the very least Daemon’s dragonrider spouse had just a little extra say in how she shuffled off this mortal coil.
