Crab Feeder’s Wrath On The King’s Breed
More than three years have passed in Westeros. King Viseyrs has remarried Alicent Hightower and is blessed with a son, Aegon II. Without the crown’s permission, Prince Daemon and Ser Corlys Velaryon started a war against the new threat Craghas Drahar.
At the beginning of the episode, we witness Crab Feeder brutally defeating the Rogue Prince and his army. However, Daemon resists with his dragon Caraxes and ends up running back to his troops. On the other hand, the King is busy with his son’s second birthday celebration.
Prince Aegon’s Second Birthday Celebration
A royal hunt has been arranged in honor of Viserys’ only son’s birthday. Moreover, royal families from all seven kingdoms participated in this occasion. However, the birthday celebration soon turns into mayhem as King tries to marry Rhaenyra against her will.
The entire party enjoys the quarrels between father and daughter. After the heated discussion, Rhaenyra storms off on her horse, followed by bodyguard Ser Criston Cole.
House Of The Dragon: A Boar-ing Hunt
The Princess and Ser Criston decide to camp in the jungle for the night. While the night was going in peace, a boar attacked them. Knocking down the brave knight, the animal goes for the Princess. However, Criston quickly stands up and ends the struggle by piercing his sword into the wild beast.
Rhaenyra takes care of the rest by mercilessly butchering it with her knife. On the contrary, the King’s royal hunt was a bit different. The mighty King weeps into Alicent’s arms as he shares his concerns with her. The next morning he mercilessly kills the brown hart. Moreover, the Princess returns to the camp with the boar.
Chaos after the royal hunt
After witnessing the eye-soring display of Princess Rhaenyra’s face covered in blood, the royal hunt came to an end. With everyone returning to the castle, the scheming and plotting begin again. Ser Otto Hightower convinces his daughter that Prince Aegon is the rightful heir to the throne.
However, when she meets Viserys, she doesn’t press widdle Aegon’s case. She urges him to send aid to Vaemond Velaryon’s ongoing battle. Being a good husband, the King decides to send 2000 men and a few ships to the battlefield.
The battle of Stepstones: Prince Daemon serves Crab dips without the cheese
The ongoing battle in the Stepstones is not going in Westeros’ favor, but Ser Corlys’ son Laenor comes up with a strategy. He proposes to send Prince Daemon as bait and lure the Craghar’s army outside the cave. The Prince, mad with his brother’s message, agrees to the plan.
Hence, begins the ultimate effort to take down the enemy. Moreover, the strategy worked, and opponents came out of the caves. Daemon took out multiple men single-handedly and was supported by his army and Laenor’s dragon. The Rogue Prince won the battle, and we see the third official dragon.
