The first episode of ‘House of the Dragon’ exceeded all the expectations and washed away all the doubts people had about the series. The ‘Game of Thrones’ prequel series is set 172 years before the Mad King and the birth of Danaerys Targaryen, which means that viewers will finally get to know why and how a strong Targaryen dynasty was brought down to its knees.

With episode 1 earning rave reviews from the critics as well as viewers, the wait for the second chapter becomes that much harder. The second episode, titled ‘The Rogue Prince’, will primarily focus on Prince Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith), who was told to leave Westeros for mocking the death of King Viserys’ son. Initially, Daemon was supposed to be the new heir to the throne, but Viserys decided that his daughter Princess Rhaenyra would be a better choice for the Iron Throne and made her the new heir. A man like Daemon, who has a vicious personality, won’t be sitting idle for too long and he will bounce back to become the reason for Targaryen’s monumental fall.

What can we expect from ‘The Rogue Prince’?

The title suggests that Prince Daemon will be in the spotlight and viewers will get to see what he does after leaving Westeros, along with his dragon and new mistress. On the other hand, Ser Otto Hightower might push her daughter to spend more time with King Viserys and seduce her so that he starts liking her. It’s still unclear as to what Ser Otto will do, but it might include him telling his daughter to be with King Viserys for as long as possible. He might tell his daughter to seduce Viserys and its ‘Game of Thrones’, so we know nothing is impossible.

On the other hand, Viserys’ health might get affected by all the injuries he’s enduring while sitting on the throne. He was getting checked for a wound that he suffered while sitting on the Iron Throne and maesters realized that it was not getting healed. But his problems got worse when he received a cut on his finger in the final moments of the episode. A new cut, along with the unhealed injury, might turn out to be pretty lethal for the king.
