"House Of The Dragon" Made People Scream And Cry A LOT This Week — Here Are The Best Jokes

"Stop naming all your kids Aegon!"

Oof, you guys...if you tuned in for this week's House of the Dragon episode, "The Lord of the Tides," then you know what I'm saying when I say it was A LOT.

Rhaenyra

Emotions rode high as we watched King Viserys try to keep his family (and himself, literally) together. And I'm pretty sure we all collectively screamed at Daemon doing his usual...the most.

Anyway, fans had PLENTY to say again this week, so here's a look at the best and funniest reactions on Twitter:

It’s crazy how Alicent hated Rhaenyra for having consensual pre-marital sex while she’s routinely picking up after her rapist son and doling out plan-B teas. How she called the Targaryen customs “queer” yet forced her SON AND DAUGHTER TO MARRY EACH OTHER. #HouseOfthedragon
