- “The Green Council” (Olivia Cooke, Ser Otto Frey) was all about Alicent Hightower’s connection with her father.
- Alicent believes that her late husband’s dying wish was for their son Aegon II (Tom Glynn-Carney) to succeed to the throne.
- In contrast to the focus on Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy) and Daemon (Matt Smith) in “House of the Dragon,”
In “House of the Dragon,” the focus was on Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy) and Daemon (Matt Smith). “The Green Council” (Olivia Cooke, Ser Otto Frey) was all about Alicent Hightower’s (Olivia Cooke) relationship with her father (Rhys Ifans).
When King Viserys (Paddy Considine) passes away, the throne must be filled by the royal council. Alicent believes that her late husband’s dying wish was for their son, Aegon II (Tom Glynn-Carney), to succeed to the throne of Westeros. Finding Aegon is a top priority, and Alicent and Otto are aware of this.
For the purpose of finding his grandchild at King’s Landing, Otto sends the Kingsguardsmen Ser Erryk (Elliott Tittensor) and Ser Arryk (Luke Tittensor) Cargyll.
Since Aegon hasn’t indicated any interest in becoming King, Otto must consult Mysaria (Sonoya Mizuno). The boys catch a sight of a little blonde girl while digging through a child fighting pit down within Flea Bottom. They identify the young man and say, “he’s only one of many.”
It is implied that this young man is one of Aegon’s vile offspring. As Aegon already has a family, this may further complicate the Targaryen line of succession. He is the proud father of Prince Jaehaerys, Princess Jaehaera, and Prince Maelor, all of whom he fathered with his sister Helaena (Phia Saban).
