Well, well, well...another week on House of the Dragon, and another week where Daemon Targaryen proved to be the most unhinged (and most loved) character on the show.
For a brief refresher, this week's episode, "The Lord of the Tides," brought a lot of emotion and bloodshed (ALWAYS, right?!) to King's Landing.
With Corlys Velaryon MIA for six years, the Driftwood Throne succession has come into question. Corlys's younger brother, Vaemond, feels it's his right to take over as ruler of Driftmark instead of Laenor's heir, Lucerys. His main reason? He believes Lucerys is not Laenor's legitimate son. (I meannnn, he's not WRONG, but what fun is there in the truth on this show, right?!)
Obviously, Vaemond's petition doesn't sit well with Rhaenyra. So, she and Daemon travel with their children to King's Landing to ask her dying father, Viserys, to back her (and her son's) claim.
After Viserys makes a dramatic (and emotional) entrance into the throne room, he attempts to shut down Vaemond's petition. However, Vaemond refuses to go down quietly and causes QUITE the scene by calling Lucerys a "bastard" and Rhaenyra a "whore."
This treasonous accusation is enough to make the near-death Viserys stand and reach for his dagger to "have" Vaemond's tongue, but that's when Daemon does THE MOST Daemon thing possible and suddenly beheads Vaemond. Right there. In front of EVERYONE.
Suffice to say this HOLY SHIT moment left fans screaming and even more OBSESSED with Daemon:
TBH, besides this violent moment, fans were living for basically EVERY Daemon moment this entire episode:
And they were most definitely HERE for Matt Smith's continued A+++ performance on the show:
