“House of the Dragon” Season 1 Episode 9 – Rhaenys and Dragon

If you need to get something done, ask a mother. And if you need to get something done and somehow break the rules of time and space, ask a mother with a kite at the ready.

Certainly, if Eve Best wants Rhaenys to be remembered for everything she’s done house of the dragon‘s Episode 9, she rides her dragon into the dragon pit of King’s Landing and publicly objects to Aegon’s ascension to the Iron Throne.

But if you remember The Queen That Never Was two Things from the penultimate hour of the season, I hope we all remember how insanely fast she made it from the ceremony to the Red Keep and back – with a costume change! – in time to mix things up royally.

If you recall, the point in the episode where Aegon started getting anointed is also the point where Rhaenys realized that all eyes are on the platinum brat at the front of the room… making it a cloaked wannabe- Citizen like her makes it easy to slip out a side door that went unnoticed by the assembled crowd.

Minutes later, Aegon’s kingship had barely begun when it was interrupted by a shrieking, heavy-footed, uninvited guest: Meleys, the scaly beast, piloted by an even worse-than-usual Rhaenys, who at the last moment spared the lives of Alicent, Ageon, Otto, and the rest of the assembled royals (although not the common folk who unfortunately stood in Meleys’ way at some point during the proceedings – read a full synopsis here).

That means me am clueless as to how she’d managed it: running all the way back to the Red Keep, making her way to her rooms, donning those admittedly awesome dragon riding attire, traversing the grounds until she got to the dragon pen, hopping on her mount back and so quickly flies back to the ascension event.

Then I remember it’s a show about kites and I relax and enjoy the heartbroken safe ride.

A few thoughts on episode 9 ahead of next week’s season 1 finale (check out the trailer!):

* I admit to being perplexed/not following: Who was this man walking away from the burning building at the 43 minute mark? One of Larys’ fireflies destroying the web he was referring to earlier? I’m open – educate me!

* Ugh Lary’s foot fetish scene. Alicent, you are a QUEEN. Don’t take it that nasty men NEAR YOU are nasty.

* RIP Lyman Beesbury! And considering how poorly he’s aged (if not physically – the character looks almost exactly like he did in the premiere), it’s so hard to believe I ever found Ser Criston Cole charming.

What thoughts/questions/predictions do she have after this week house of the dragon?
