Daemon returned to Dragonstone and offered up his crown to Viserys. That night, he and Rhaenyra went out in the village under disguise, where they watched a play, had some drinks and ended up in a pleasure house. It was there that Rhaenyra ultimately found herself making out with her uncle.
This spinoff is all about House Targaryen, known for over three hundred years of heavy inbreeding in order to "keep the bloodline pure," so it didn't come as a surprise to any fans of the series. However, spoiler alert, Rhaenyra and Daemon did not go all the way. Daemon seemed to have grown a conscience in the moment and walked away, leaving Rhaenyra alone all hot and bothered, which ultimately led to her seducing Ser Criston Cole, a member of King Viserys's Kingsguard.
Rhaenyra's rendezvous with Ser Criston stayed a secret, but her secret tryst with her uncle did not as Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King, revealed to Viserys that his daughter and his brother were seen "coupling" in the pleasure house.
Viewers were all for Rhaenyra and Damon and Rhaenyra and Criston, and took to Twitter Sunday night to praise her for her conquests, but it was King Viserys sending the Westeros version of a morning-after pill, despite Rhaenyra swearing on her mother's grave that she did not do the deed with Daemon, that really got the conversation going. One fan : "I cannot believe Viserys is more supportive of women's reproductive rights than half the United States Congress."
No baby Criston on the horizon since Rhaenyra was given the tea to "rid her of any unwanted consequences," but her relationship with her uncle is about to get real messy as Daemon asked Viserys for Rhaenyra's hand in marriage.
"Wed her to me. When I offered up my crown, you said I could have anything. I want Rhaenyra. I'll take her as she is, and wed her in the tradition of our house," Daemon told Viserys. "Give me Rhaenyra to take to wife and we will return the House of the Dragon to its proper glory."
You [BLEEP] David in a pleasure house.
- This is a vile accusation.
- Is it? You talk Aryans do have queer customs.
KYLIE MAR: Rhaenyra and Daemon chose the Targaryen way on a new episode of "House of the Dragon" Sunday when they visited a pleasure house and got even more comfortable with each other. This "Game of Thrones" spin off is all about the Targaryens.
So Rhaenyra and her uncle hooking up really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. But just in case you are a little weirded out, spoiler alert, they didn't actually go all the way. Rhaenyra did, however, still get some action from Sir Criston. But that stayed a secret. Whereas her brief tryst with Daemon did not.
- She's just a girl, your niece. Rhaenyra's a woman grown. A bet her past experience to be with me than some of all.
- You [BLEEP] You have ruined her. What lord will wed her now in this condition?
KYLIE MAR: Fans were all for Rhaenyra and Daemon and Rhaenyra and Criston and took to Twitter Sunday night to praise her for getting two of the hottest men on the show. But it was King Viserys sending the Westeros version of a morning after pill that really got the conversation going.
- I'm sorry. What is that?
- A tea, princess, from the king. It will rid you of any unwanted consequences.
KYLIE MAR: One viewer tweeted, I cannot believe Viserys is more supportive of women's reproductive rights than half the United States Congress. While another shared, me realizing Westeros has better abortion access than some states in the US. So no baby Criston on the horizon. But her relationship with Daemon is about to get even messier.
- Give me Rhaenyra to take to wife, and we will return the House of the Dragon to its proper glory.
- Of course, it's not my daughter you lust for, is it? It's my throne.
