What Happened In House Of The Dragon Episode 8?
The eighth episode of House of the Dragon was titled ‘Lord Of The Tides’. The title refers to the lord of Driftmark castle. In the beginning, we learn that the Sea Snake has been severely injured during the battle at the StepStone. There are chances that he may not survive. As a result, his brother, Vaemond Velaryon, makes his claim for the Driftmark as he believes that Rhaenyra’s sons are illegitimate.
Vaemond makes the plea for his claim on the Driftmark before the crown. After learning that her son’s claim to Drfitmark has been challenged, Daemon and Rhaenyra head to the Capital. In King’s Landing, fans see King Viserys’ health has gone worse. He is unable to conduct the court. Thus, Otto Hightower is making decisions on his behalf. Vaemond proposed his allegiance to the Greens in exchange for him getting Driftmark, and Otto seemed pretty convinced about the trade.
However, to the surprise of everyone, an ailing King Viserys, makes his way to the court to settle the matter for himself. Meanwhile, Corlys Velaryon’s wife, Rhaenys, sides with the Rhaenyra, and Driftmark castle is given to Lucerys Velaryon. As a result, Vaemond loses his temper and calls Princess’ sons bastards resulting in Daemon beheading him.
Later On, Viserys organize a supper for his entire family as a last attempt to mend their differences. At the feast, things seemed to be going well until Aemon made a snarky comment about the ‘Strong’ boys breaking out a fight among the kin.
