House of the Dragon: This happens in Episode 6

House of the Dragon: Alicent and Ser Criston.

It’s been ten years in House of the Dragon since the last installment, and a lot has changed in Westeros in that time. Not only is the relationship between Rhaenyra Targaryen and Alicent Hightower irreparably damaged, both have also had several children. How bitterly the former friends hate each other quickly becomes apparent when Alicent calls Rhaenyra to see her youngest child shortly after the birth of her youngest child. Rhaenyra doesn’t even have time to properly digest the birth.

Alicent’s distrust is not only due to her hatred and envy of Rhaenyra. Viserys’ daughter is heir to the throne, after all, and yet she doesn’t really bother to hide her affair with Harwin Strong. How else to explain that her children do not have white hair, but rather dark hair? King Viserys is dead silent on this obvious detail – too bad Rhaenyra’s and Alicent’s sons are training with Ser Criston, who still hasn’t wounded Rhaenyra’s basket.

Bastards and fire deaths

Criston’s dislike of Rhaenyra’s sons is revealed when he pits Alicent’s eldest son, Aegon, against Rhaenyra’s eldest, Jace. Criston urges Aegon not to spare Jace until Harwin Strong finally puts an end to it all. Harwin and Criston start a fight that has multiple repercussions.

House of the Dragon: What is Larys Strong planning

Viserys’ new hand of the king, Harwin’s father Lyonel Strong, offers the king his resignation over the incident and Rhaenyra more or less orders her husband Laenor not to go to sea but to stay with her and be a real father to her sons . Larys Strong, in turn, makes a subliminal offer to Queen Alicent to make her father Otto the hand of the king again. Would Alicent have consented if she had known Larys was sacrificing most of his family to do so? At least she is far from happy when she finds out that Larys was behind the fire that broke out in Harrenhal and in which Lyonel and Harwin burned to death.
