They mentioned that Rhaenys was patrolling the narrow seas to block off trade to Kings Landing. But yes, Rhaenys was the one to send. Rhaenerya was at the tournament when that Baratheon gave Rhaenys the favor. She basically went to Storms End with nothing more than look at our dragon and swear your allegiance again. These lords have to supply fighters and gold in a war so the Hightower offer of a marriage alliance is the stronger offer.

You would think she'd be even more protective of her children right after she lost one in childbirth.

And to be honest, even in the absence of big kaiju dragon, Luke and his dragon aren't that awe inspiring.

Great finale to a fantastic season Everyone brought their A-game, from the cast, crew, creative talent, set designers, CGI, everything. Bring on season 2.

Hate to play the comparison game but House of the Dragon wildly succeeded in every way that Rings of Power failed.

Got an email from Warner about the first season 4K Steelbook.

Wow, this show was a slog to get through but really paid off on the last two episodes. The dragons looked amazing. This was like the Godfather II of the series so far, very drawn out and sometimes pointless but very well made.

Hopefully this will be back in less than 2 years.

What subplots or story moments would you consider pointless? I thought it was tight as a drum.

Apparently there was more to the story about Miguel Sapochnik quitting as co-showrunner. He wanted his wife to get a producing credit for season 2 and HBO said No.

Perhaps a marriage between teenage children of HBO executives and Sapochnik with an exchange of lands and titles could mend the alliance between House HBO and House Sapochnik.
