'House of the Dragon' Episode 7: Princess Rhaenyra, Prince Daemon FINALLY get married, elated fans feel 'Daemyra nation' won
If you have been a fan of George RR Martin’s ‘Fire and Blood’, then you know how things turn out to be between Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Prince Daemon Targaryen. However, curious fans wanted to see how they are going to adapt that aspect of the source material in ‘House of the Dragon’. From the very first episode, viewers knew that Rhaenyra had a soft corner for Daemon and the Prince also felt strongly about the heir to the throne.
As the story progressed, we saw Daemon (Matt Smith) and Rhaenyra (Milly Alcock) kissing each other as they wandered the streets of the kingdom. However, nothing more happened at the time. When Viserys found out that Daemon took Rhaenyra to the “dirty” part of the city, Daemon asked for Rhaenyra’s hand and told Viserys that he wants to marry her niece. King Viserys was really angry and ordered him to go away from King’s Landing. Since then, we have seen them meeting each other on a few occasions and even though they were married, they never stopped loving each other.
After 7 long episodes, the moment finally arrived and viewers got a chance to see Rhaenyra and Daemon confessing their love for each other. They ended up having sex with each other on the beach and got married by the end of the episode. As soon as the marriage scene surfaced online, social media went berserk and fans started to share their excitement by giving the sequence massive thumbs up.
One of the fans wrote, “DAEMYRA NATION WE WON.” Another fan said, “Daemon and Rhaenyra together finally. The way it should be.” Another fan noted, “Daemon and Rhaenyra together finally. The way it should be.” Another social media user tweeted, “When Rhaenyra and Daemon come together it is when the show peaks, two outstanding characters on their own but when they are together … it’s a fire no one is capable to put out.”

The ending of Episode 7 saw Rhaenyra and Daemon getting married in the tradition of their house. Their children were also present during the small ceremony and it will be interesting to see how they are going to adapt to new relationships and new situations. However, we do know that it’s the beginning of the end for House Targaryen and the real ‘Game of Thrones’ is about to begin.
