Ewan Mitchell gave his first ever interview for House of the Dragon in December (Inside the Episode featurettes notwithstanding), in which he discussed why his character, Aemond Targaryen, is the way he is and what we can look forward to next season.

The Black Queen: A House of the Dragon Twitter Recap

Black Queen Arrax Lucerys Storms End

So with “The Black Queen,” we’ve reached the final episode of the first season of House of the Dragon, and with it, the concluding Twitter Recap. But! There’s hope on the horizon. In a mere two years, there’s more to come. And if there’s anything we’re good at in this fandom, it’s waiting…and waiting…and…waiting….C’mon, y’all, after waiting a decade for TWOW, we can do a little two-year wait standing on our heads!

This week, you cried for Lucerys, screamed at Aemond, cursed out Daemon, and cheered for Queen Rhaenyra. And yes, there was a solid round of “What the fuck”s with another terrifying birth scene. As far as TV trademark scenes go, that’s an interesting choice, but I salute their boldness.

House of the Dragon Review/Recap Roundup Season 1 Episode 10 – The Black Queen

Dragonstone Castle, Jace Velaryon (Harry Collett), Luke Velaryon (Elliot Grihault), 1x10 (1)

Episode 10s in the Game of Thrones universe historically process the insanity that happened in episode 9 at a slower pace, so that we as an audience can digest what happened the previous week, and watch the pieces get put into place for next season. Did House of the Dragon episode 10 follow suit in its forebear’s tradition? Did the critics of the Internet play along? Did they like it? Did I like it? All this and more can be found within. Who am I? It’s me from just last week. Silly you; you knew that! Every week, for each new episode of HOTD, I deconstruct the multitude of reviews out there, boiling them down to one short summary sentence that will perfectly encapsulate what the original author was saying, no questions asked…and by that I mean that I deconstruct whole essays down to one sentence apiece, often quoting them verbatim. So don’t @ me!

What I will do is attempt to summarize the original review as best I can, and if my tease whets your appetite for their style of review, you are encouraged to head over to their site and let them know…after of course letting us know your thoughts in the comments below. At the bottom, I will summarize my review of the reviewers’ reviews.

All squared? Jolly good, let’s dive in.
