    It opens with a funeral for Laena.

    A coffin is pushed towards water by two soldiers

    We see Laenor, Rhaenyra, and her children, and Viserys and Alicent, and their children, gathered to mourn at what appears to be Driftmark.

    Laenor, Rhaenyra, Luke, Jace, Aegon, Alicent, Viserys and Helaena stand in a row in front of a crowd of people, all looking sad

    We hear Corlys saying, "What is this brief mortal life, if not the pursuit of legacy?"

    A group of mourners stand on rocks by the sea as the coffin is dropped into the water

    Then we hear Otto say, "We play an ugly game."

    We see Rhaenys dropping a ring onto a table.

    It's hard to tell, but it looks like a ring she was wearing on her index finger earlier in the season.

    We then see Rhaenys' face, and she understandably looks deeply unhappy.

    Then we see Alicent on a ship with Larys lurking in the background — no doubt going to/from Driftmark. We hear someone (Larys?) say, "If you are to be a strong queen, your subjects must fear you."

    There's a shot of a very serious-looking Rhaenyra.
