Dear fans, the last episode of 'House of the Dragon' Season 1 has already aired. Since the beginning of the series, fans suspected that this ride would not be particularly easy. While some are feeling relatively okay, others mourn the death of the young Prince Lucerys. Prince Lucerys Velaryon, also known as Luke, (Elliot Grihault) was the second-born of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen from her first husband, Ser Laenor Velaryon. He was a dragon rider whose dragon was Arrax. Luke was a bit shy and stayed away from violent activities.

However, his death, shown in a well-thought-out manner, has left fans in pure shock. While some fans mourn the loss of young Prince Luke, others seem to be furious with Aemond. The rivalry between the cousins has been very evident since the beginning of time, whether it was being called illegitimate or Aemond stealing his cousin's dragon, Vhagar. Speaking of which, Vhagar is also hated plenty, and while most fans want to "slay" Aemond, some are wondering about Rhaenyra's next move, who looked very angry in the last scene.

Prince Lucerys, the younger son, was sent on a mission considered shorter and safer than that of his brother Jacaerys. He flew with Arrax as a messenger to Storm's End, where it was expected that Lord Borros Baratheon would give him a warm welcome. But Prince Aemond Targaryen had already arrived at the castle on Vhagar to win Borros' allegiance to his brother King Aegon II by agreeing to marry one of Borros' four daughters. After the disagreement, when Luke departed, Aemond wanted to pick a fight to "get vengeance" as he wanted to keep an eye on Luke. However, Borros told Aemond that he had no say in what he did until he was under Borros' roof, and allowed Luke to leave since he had only come as a messenger. Arrax struggled to stay aloft in the storm, while Aemond mounted Vhagar and pursued Luke. To save himself, Arrax defended himself and flew away from the old dragon Vhagar and his master Aemond, when suddenly Vhagar devoured the young prince and his dragon because of his favorable size.

According to the book, Arrax fell and was swallowed by the storm-lashed waters of the bay. His head and neck washed up on the cliffs below Storm's End three days later. Prince Lucerys' body, on the other hand, was never found.

Nevertheless, after viewers watched the finale episode's ending they could barely keep it together. A fan said, 'That little boy didn’t deserve to die like that I’m sad #HOTDFinale," while another commented, "For he will forever be Young Prince Lucerys. :( #HouseOfTheDragonHBO #HOTDFinale." A fan mentioned, "Like I knew Lucerys died but f**k man I’m still so sad #HouseoftheDragon #HOTDFinale." A fan wrote, "IM IN SHOOOOOCKKKKK #HOTDFinale." A fan tweeted, "Oh it’s on now! I’m ready to grab a sword and a dragon and kill Aemond my damn self. #HouseOfTheDragonHBO #HOTDFinale #HouseoftheDragon." A fan shared, "The way Aemond's dragon Vhagar ATE Lucerys Velaryon AND his dragon in one bite!! #HOTD #HOTDFinale," while another adds, "It was at the moment he knew he f**ked up #HouseOfTheDragon #HOTD #HouseTargaryen."
