What happened in the previous episode of House of the Dragon?
In the previous episode, Viserys learned about Rhaenyra sneaking out of the palace with Daemon to some not-so-respectable places. Furious with his daughter’s little stunt, he asked her to marry Laenor Velaryaon. And the surprising thing was that Rhaenyra agreed to marry Laenor in order to create diplomatic ties. But her request to her father was for the removal of Otto Hightower from the council.
According to Rhaenyra, in order to make Alicent’s son sit on the iron throne, Otto will do anything, including using his position to manipulate the King. Though Otto was removed from his position by Viserys, it’s safe to assume that things will get even worse for the House of Targaryen with this decision. Every single decision of Viserys’s will result in the civil war during Targaryen rule, also called the Dance of the Dragons.
