Episode 3 Preview – Second of His Name

This week’s The Rogue Prince produced a powerful interaction at Dragonstone, where we saw Rhaenyra exert her dominance as the King’s heir, but she was later blindsided at the last minute by her father’s decision to wed her best friend Alicent Hightower.

Episode 3, Second of His Name, will see the fallout of Viserys’ choice in marriage, where his relationship with his daughter will need to be mended. The unknown threat of Lord Corlys’ union with Daemon will also build behind the King’s back and viewers will see more of the antagonist Crabfeeder as Corlys and Daemon plot against him.

The next episode could also see another time jump, possibly to the hasty wedding and then many years into the future that will showcase Rhaenyra and Alicent’s now fractured relationship.
