House of the Dragon Episode 2 Recap “The Rogue Prince”

 House of the Dragon Episode 2: What to Expect

The following episode is titled “The Rogue Prince” and was written by Ryan Condal and directed by Greg Yaitanes. Episode 2 will very definitely address the events that followed Episode 1. The episode will probably focus on what happened to Daemon Targaryan (Matt Smith) after Viserys I (Paddy Considine), his brother, exiled him from the royal court. The episode seems to be titled after Daemon, so anticipate the erstwhile heir to make a big splash.

HOTD Episode 1 focused on King Viserys’s attempt to create a male heir to the Targaryen dynasty through the power of will. Unfortunately, his passion came to an end with the passing of his wife and little kid. The king’s daughter, Princess Rhaenyra, was given the right to succeed in place of his brother, Prince Daemon, who was still the next in line to the throne. However, the ever-egotistical prince ranted in public and humiliated the king’s deceased child. The king’s council and other prominent members of the realm swore allegiance to Rhaenyra at the end of the episode because Daemon needed to return to the Vale to be with his estranged wife.

Expect tensions within the Targaryen family to start building in Episode 2 as Rhaenyra is propelled toward power and Daemon is banished to the background. Rhaenyra will probably face numerous challenges because the kingdom might still be against the idea of a woman sitting on the Iron Throne. She might also have to be concerned about her father getting remarried and having another heir, particularly if the show stays true to the plot of the novel.

The king’s hand, Otto (Rhys Ifans), instructed his daughter Alicent (Emily Carey), who is Rhaenyra’s acquaintance, to pay the king a visit in the first episode. After their amicable exchange, Episode 2 and subsequent episodes might focus more on their future romance.

Is there a promo for House of the Dragon: Episode 2?

Although there is not a specific promo for Episode 2, the premiere episode from the previous week did include a trailer titled “Weeks Ahead,” which provides a sneak peek at what is to come later on in the season. It includes a number of scenarios that viewers could potentially see in Episode 2. It also provides us with some hints as to where the story might go from here, with Daemon Targaryen (played by Matt Smith) starting his rampage and Rhaenyra dealing with the growing feeling that the realm would rather disintegrate into itself than allow a woman to rule. The struggle for control of the kingdom is heating up.

HOTD Episode 2 Synopsis: Princess Rhaenyra dives deep into the prophecies about House Targaryen while confronting a realm that resists the idea of a woman on the Iron Throne, and Prince Daemon, embittered over being passed over as the heir to Westeros, prepares to go to war.
