The king is overjoyed to learn that they have been successful in having children, and the royal family has a wonderful moment together.
Rhaenyra is concerned about the future of the throne in Driftmark, so she suggests to Rhaenys that they should encourage the children to marry in order to secure the position of the throne in that location.
Rhaenys is aware that Rhaenyra is having difficulty adjusting to her diminished power.
Viserys show up at the event for the throne, and Rhaenyra can’t help but interrupt him repeatedly. Viserys responds by declaring that he will have Vaemond’s tongue after Vaemond refers to her as a whore.
Daemon decapitates him and tells him he can keep his tongue, but he must give up his head.
Viserys call his family together and announces that he would like to have supper. There are some surprising developments in the relationships between the youngsters, but Rhaenyra and Alicent manage to put an end to their feud.
The King is now resting in his bed when he begins muttering to himself about the Prince That Was Promised and the necessity for him to sit on the throne.
As soon as Alicent leaves, it appears like he is taking his final breath. Did he launch the civil war in the Targaryen dynasty?
