The first three episodes of ‘House of the Dragon’ have been phenomenal and even though the show is taking time jumps in every episode, the story is so beautifully stitched that it doesn’t feel too rushed. In the latest episode, we saw the series taking a three-year time jump and seeing King Viserys (Paddy Considine) marrying Alicent Hightower (Emily Carey). They have already welcomed a son and the second baby is on its way as well.

On the other hand, Prince Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith) wreaked havoc on Stepstones after he was betrayed by his own brother. He took on the army of the Crab Feeder and killed most of the fighters. A few moments later he was joined by Caraxes, Lord Corlys, and other fighters. In the episode also Daemon killed the Crab Feeder and won the battle.

Meanwhile, Princess Rhaenyra (Milly Alcock) is feeling the heat as well because she feels that she is being overlooked after the birth of Aegon. She believes that her father only wants her to marry so that she would go away even though she is the heir to the throne. But it seems things are getting even more problematic for her because someone has accused her of doing something that might bring shame to her name. Let’s take a look at what will happen in Episode 4.

‘House of the Dragon’ Episode 4 Spoilers: What is Princess Rhaenyra being accused of?

In the latest promo released for ‘House of the Dragon’ Episode 4, we see Ser Otto Hightower meeting Viserys and telling him that he has some “discomforting news”. In the next scene, we see Princess Rhaenyra telling someone that “this is a vile accusation." But what is she being accused of? So, in the book ‘Fire & Blood’, there was a scandalous moment that changed everything. A septon by the name of Eustace claimed that Daemon seduced Rhaenyra “and claimed her maidenhood.”

The book also states that a member of the Kingsguard found them together and took them to Viserys, where Rhaenyra declared that she was in love with Daemon and wanted to marry him. Meanwhile, Runciter said that Rhaenyra wanted to seduce Ser Criston Cole and met with Prince Daemon to take some lessons.

It is yet to be seen what is Princess Rhaenyra being accused of, but we believe that it would probably be the former one and that’s how things will turn even bitter among members of House Targaryen. However, it is a vile accusation because we haven’t seen anything between Rhaenyra and her uncle Daemon. It would be really interesting to see how these characters come together to fight this.

We all know how it ends, but a twist in the tale might make things even better.
