View this video on YouTube HBO / Via youtube.com It opens with a funeral for Laena. HBO We see Laenor, Rhaenyra, and her children, and Viserys and Alicent, and their children, gathered to mourn at what appears to be Driftmark. HBO Laena finally got to go home. 😢 We hear Corlys saying, "What is this brief mortal life, if not the pursuit of legacy?" HBO Then we hear Otto say, "We play an ugly game." HBO We see Rhaenys dropping a ring onto a table. HBO It's hard to tell, but it looks like a ring she was wearing on her index finger earlier in the season. Ollie Upton / HBO Presumably, it has some significance and relates to her feelings about her daughter's death in some way. We then see Rhaenys' face, and she understandably looks deeply unhappy. HBO We get a shot of our big baby girl Vhagar. HBO 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." HBO There's a shot of a very serious-looking Rhaenyra. HBO We see fire coming from what looks like Vhagar's throat as we hear Rhaenyra saying, "Fire is such strange power. Everything that House Targaryen possesses is owed to it." HBO There's a shot of THAT dagger near a fire, which we know can reveal its secrets. HBO Daemon, Rhaenyra, and Corlys huddle around a blood-spattered Luke. HBO Who has hurt the poor baby! There's a close-up of a dragon's eye. HBO Then we see Daemon and Laena's twins watching as someone moves near Vhagar in the darkness outside. HBO They wake what appears to be Jace, and tell him, "Someone stole Vhagar". HBO There's a shot of Vhagar's huge foot. HBO And a blonde (one of the Targaryens?) putting somoone in a chokehold in the Hall of Nine at High Tide. HBO HMMM Laenor looks very angry and fights someone with brown hair. HBO Someone wearing a hood (Daemon? He loves hoods!) looks at the docks. HBO We hear an upset Alicent say, "There is a debt to be paid." HBO What looks like Corlys and Rhaenys rush into a crowded Hall of Nine — we can see Baela and Rhaena in the center of the room. HBO Someone hits Jace. HBO HOW DARE THEY. Then Jace falls to the ground next to someone — probably Luke. HBO A bloodied Rhaena and Baela stand together looking scared. HBO Whoever is hurting these babies needs to be fed to a dragon. In another sequence, we can see Daemon skulking somewhere. HBO Rhaenyra says, "This is the highest of treasons," as she stands protectively in front of a bloodied Jace, with Corlys in the background. HBO Someone is going to PAY. Cut to: this fucking guy is back. HBO And THIS FUCKING GUY is still around. Larys exchanges a glance with Alicent as Otto watches. HBO We see Vhagar flying in the night, presumably with whoever has stolen her on her back. HBO Alicent grabs Viserys' dagger. HBO THE dagger. She spins and, as we know from later in this trailer and in the original show trailer, she charges towards Rhaenyra and her sons with it. HBO We see Otto, in darkness, confronting what appears to be one of his grandsons — it looks like Aegon, but it is possibly Aemond. HBO We get another shot of a very serious-looking Rhaenyra. HBO And another shot of the blonde attacking this brunette guy in the Hall of NIne. HBO Is that Laenor's lover Qarl Correy getting attacked? Then we hear Otto say, "I promise you, in time, you and I together will prevail", accompanied by a close-up of the Hand pin Otto is wearing again. HBO Then there's this shot of Alicent. HBO We see Rhaenyra's hand bleeding — possibly from being cut by Alicent wielding Viserys' dagger. HBO Finally, an emotional Rhaenyra holds back Alicent with the dagger and says, "Now they see you as you are." HBO It's all happening! What are you most excited to see next episode?
