The Princess and The Tweeter: A House of the Dragon Twitter Recap

King's Landing Red Keep Rhaenyra's Chambers, Harwin Strong (Ryan Corr), Baby Joffrey Velaryon, 1x06 (1)

They weren’t kidding around about those Targaryen house words, were they? Fire and Blood reigned (and rained) on this week’s episode, “The Princess and the Queen.” What’s House of the Dragon without a little heartbreak, or a lot, as it were. This week, Twitter lost it over the fiery ends and the betrayals. There was a shit ton of “NOOOOOOOOOO”s for the Strongs and Laena, and a lot of loathing for Larys, Alicent and Criston.

As always with our recap, please be patient with the loading time on the app. Thank you and enjoy it as much as Aegon loves a nice window!

  1. I feel like Alicent & Criston’s bitterness kind of fed each other over these ten years, causing it to fester strongly in both. If they hadn’t been interacting constantly all these years, I think it’s possible at least one of them would have simmered down by now.

  2. I love the tweets praising Daemon for his concern for Laena. They must’ve forgot that he just murdered his wife in the previous episode.

  3. It’s true, Viserys could have just told Alicent to knock it off on a couple of occasions.

    “I am your king.”

    “Well I didn’t vote for you! I thought we were an autonomous collective.”

  4. I mean, Viserys is just not a very good king. No wonder Alicent is running the entire council lol. Some of the takes I’ve seen on twitter are… well let’s just say ppl think they’re watching a different show 🤣.

    Except power is not power if it has no force. In the case of Viserys and Alicent, he knows full well that she is now the figurehead for a huge faction within Westeros, and that silencing her means rebellion. Yes, he has for the moment all of the full grown dragons on his side to enforce his will, but he is definitely NOT the kind of King who wants to burn half of his subjects to a crip just so he can say no to his wife.
