House Of The Dragon’s Epic Targaryen Civil War Battle Changes The Game For Rhaenyra

There are a lot of politics in House of the Dragon, but until Season 2, the two sides have been very clear. There’s Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy), Vicerys’ (Paddie Considine) eldest child and the named heir to the Iron Throne on one side, and then there’s Aegon (Tom Glynn-Carney), Vicerys’ eldest son who usurped the throne after Vicerys’ death in Season 1 on the other. Rhaenyra supporters are labeled as “Team Black” while the Aegon fans fall under “Team Green.”

Up until now, the narrative was a choice between the rightful heir and the political maneuvering of Team Green. Rhaenyra and Alicent have been struggling to prevent an all-out war, but everything changed in Episode 4. The first battles of the Targaryen civil war erupted, marking a pivotal moment that irrevocably altered Rhaenyra’s course for the Iron Throne. In colloquial terms, s–t just got real.
