‘House of the Dragon’ Just Introduced a Villain Worse Than Joffrey

The ‘Game of Thrones’ spinoff ‘House of the Dragon’ just introduced a villain worse than Joffrey or Ramsay Bolton – and he’s a cute little toddler.

[Warning: Spoilers ahead for Episode 3 of “House of the Dragon,” and for George R.R. Martin’s book “Fire & Blood.”]

The third episode of “House of the Dragon” features the baby boy of King Viserys (Paddy Considine) and his new wife Alicent Hightower (Emily Carey): a toddler named Aegon. Although the second episode just announced their wedding, this episode jumped in time until they were already celebrating the boy’s second “name day” or birthday. Aegon is the younger half-brother of Princess Rhaenyra (Milly Alcock) and although he is only a little boy now, he will grow up to be a horrible man.

[Once again, major spoilers ahead.]

King Viserys (Paddy Considine) and his new wife Alicent Hightower (Emily Carey) have a baby boy named Aegon.

These episodes are all a slow build-up of events that will lead to a brutal civil war between Rhaenyra and Aegon over who will succeed their father Viserys to the Iron Throne. Although the king named Rhaenyra as his heir, traditionally the eldest son is the heir. Everyone is already making noise about it in this episode, as the kid celebrates his second birthday.

As the show goes on, all eyes will be on Daemon (Matt Smith), the brash joker who is a fearsome warrior.

The obnoxious Jason Lannister (Jefferson Hall) tells the king that if Rhaenyra married him, she would be well compensated for her “loss in office” of no longer being the king’s heiress, since everyone now assumes that title will go. now in Aegon. Alicent and her father, Otto Hightower (Rhys Ifans) also have a conversation about it. “Do you want me to raise my son to steal his own sister’s birthright?” she asks, while Otto proclaims that if the king’s firstborn son, Aegon, not would become king, who “would attack the laws of gods and men”.

So Aegon will grow up surrounded by this rhetoric, feeling as if the throne should belong to him instead of her older half-sister, Rhaenyra. And he has many supporters who are in favor of him taking his sister’s birthright.

Paddy Considine and Emily Carey
King Viserys and Alice Hightower’s son and sister Rhaenyra will engage in a brutal civil war over who will succeed their father Viserys to the Iron Throne in future episodes.

There will be more time jumps in this show, so this toddler will eventually age and be played by Tom Glynn-Carney, a 27-year-old British actor best known for “Dunkirk.” If you want Rhaenyra to take the throne after being named heiress in the series premiere, bad news: he’s going to stand against her. And there’s going to be a lot of carnage along the way. (The carnage part is pretty obvious, considering the amount of blood in the series’ opening title sequence.)

Some fans who are in the know already hate this kid.

Luckily for Rhaenyra, she has some formidable allies in this fight. But so is Aegon. As the show goes on, all eyes will be on Daemon (Matt Smith), the brash joker who is a fearsome warrior, and Corlys Velaryon (Steve Toussaint), to see which side of the conflict they will land on.

The show has already been renewed for a season 2. No matter how many seasons this story goes on, it all leads to a slew of violence, death and tragedy – and it’s all Aegon’s fault for not not having accepted the right of his half-sister Rhaenyra. to succeed his father on the Iron Throne.

In Episode 3, a mean villain called the “Crabfeeder” nails sailors to poles and feeds them crabs.

So this little toddler may seem like an ordinary cute kid in this episode… but soon enough, he’s going to be a villain to rival even the obnoxious Joffrey or Ramsay Bolton from “GoT,” and he’s going to tear Westeros apart.

“House of the Dragon” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
