House of the Dragon Episode 3 Recap

Second of His Name ended with Daemon appearing to surrender to Crabfeeder, before striking the villain’s men at the last moment.

After dodging a series of arrows in an attempt to lure Crabfeeder out of the caves, Daemon is finally hit and surrounded.

When hope seemed lost, Laenor appeared on the back of Seasmoke to torch Crabfeeder’s men, allowing Daemon to finish the job.

Meet Seasmoke

Bred by House Targaryen, belonging to Dragonstone and ridden by Laenor Velaryon, Seasmoke sports a pale, silver-grey color and is a young dragon during the War for the Stepstones.

Seasmoke may have had a triumphant appearance in House of the Dragon, however, the source material gave him a tragic end.

After killing Kingsguard Steffon Darklyn during Dance of the Dragons, Seasmoke went on to fight Tessarion and Vermithor during the Second Battle of Tumbleton where it met its end.

Helmed by Addam Velaryon during this time, Seasmoke was ultimately beheaded by Vermithor.
