    19 Questions "House Of The Dragons" Needs To Answer After Episode 2

    Ah shit, here I go again getting sucked into the Game Of Thrones hype.

    Spoilers ahead for "House Of The Dragon" Episode 2 — you've been warned!

    Hello, hello! If you're anything like me, you've become completely invested in House Of The Dragon — even though you were so sure that you weren't going to get sucked into the Game Of Thrones hype again.

    After watching the premiere last week, I was left with a lot of burning questions — and Episode 2 was no different. So, here are just some of the things I'll be thinking about until the next episode.

    1. First of all, since when do crabs feast on human flesh?

    Crabs feeding on a human leg

    2. On that note, who exactly is the Crabfeeder and what's his connection to the Targaryen storyline?

    The Crabfeeder

    3. Who are the dragon riders that Rhaenyra refers to during the small council meeting?

    4. Why is Rhaenys, aka the "Queen Who Never Was", keeping such a close eye on Rhaenyra?

    Princess Rhaenys saying "Men would sooner put the realm to the torch than see a woman ascend the Iron Throne...and your father is no fool"

    5. Doesn't it make sense to choose Ser Criston Cole, who is the only one with combat experience? And if so, why is everyone else so against it?

    6. How long does it take to light all of those candles in the Sept?

    The Sept lit up with hundreds of candles that have been arranged in circles

    7. How does Alicent feel about the situation she's been placed into with the king?

    Alicent Hightower

    8. Especially since during the scenes in the Sept, I was definitely still getting more-than-friends vibes between Rhaenyra and Alicent.

    9. As we see later in the episode though, Viserys announces his decision to marry Alicent. With that in mind, I wonder what Rhaenyra and Alicent's relationship will transform into during the time skip — friendly or domineering?

    10. Is the king's rotting body another sign of the Iron Throne rejecting him as his rule grows weaker?

    Viserys' hand - you can see that one of his fingers is black and rotting

    11. Is Laena Velaryon asking about Vhagar foreshadowing her becoming the dragon's rider?

    12. How far away is Dragonstone from King's Landing?

    Otto and the kingsguard at Dragonstone

    13. Like, did they take some dragons there or what?

    Daemon's armies and the king's armies looking at each other on the bridge to Dragonstone

    14. Also did they really charge all the way to Dragonstone to meet with Daemon, who has a dragon that could kill them in a second, without any of their own backup?

    15. Did anyone else's mind flashback to Bridgerton and the whole "You are the bane of my existence and the object of all my desires" when Rhaenyra said "I'm right here, uncle..,the object of your ire" to Daemon?

    16. What's the deal with this portable oven contraption?

    A contraption used to transport dragon eggs - it is steaming and boiling hot

    17. Also, how long do dragon eggs take to hatch?

    18. It looks like Daemon and Lord Corlys are going to team up, but who's going to be their first target? Will it be the Crabfeeder and then the king?

    19. And lastly, just who exactly will the main villain be in House Of The Dragon?
