House of the Dragon: Otto Hightower Returns as the Dragon Vhagar is Stolen

Just after a ten-year jump on last week’s episode of House of the Dragon, tensions continue to mount in Sunday night’s seventh episode.

After disappearing for several episodes after being removed as Hand of the King, Otto Hightower (Rhys Ifans) returns in the seventh of 10 House of the Dragon episodes, titled Driftmark.

The episode’s title is the island south of Dragonstone, home of House Velaryron, as tensions mount between Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) and Alicent (Olivia Cooke).

The episode opens with a grave being prepared, the body of Lady Laena, who had her killed by her dragon after she was unable to carry her child.

The Velaryon and Targaryen families are all present at the ceremony, when Prince Daemon (Matthew Smith) for some reason suddenly starts laughing.

Her stone tomb is dropped into the sea, resting on the bottom, as we see dragons flying above the ceremony.

Rhaenyra approaches her son Jace and asks where his father is. She tells him that their cousins ​​could use a kind word from him, but he doesn’t want to.

Criston tells Alicent that Larys has been staring at her since they arrived, as we see Jace approach his cousins ​​and offer a friendly word, as his mother suggested.

Corlys approaches Lucerys and says he doesn’t want to be the Lord of the Tides because that means everyone will be dead.

Viserys approaches Daemon with kind words and says that the gods can be cruel, as Daemon says, “It seems they have been particularly cruel to you.”

“You should come with us to King’s Landing. It’s time for you to come home,” Viserys says, but Daemon says Pentos is his home.

Viserys says there’s a place in his court for him if that’s anything he needs, but Daemon says he doesn’t need anything and walks away.

He sees Otto Hightower expressing his condolences, while Daemon tells him, “No matter how fat the leech gets, he always wants another meal.”

Otto goes to fetch Aegon and tells him to go to bed when night falls.

Last week’s episode – The Princess and the Queen – brought the story forward 10 full years, with Olivia Cooke taking over the role of Queen Alicent from Emily Carey and Emma D’Arcy replacing Milly Alcock as the older, adult Princess Rhaenyra.

The episode ended with Rhaenyra, tired of living in King’s Landing, returning to her family’s ancestral home, Dragonstone.

It had been established in previous episodes that Rhaenyra would secretly let her husband Laenor (John Macmillan) live his gay lifestyle as long as they remained married as part of their duties to the crown.

Although Rhaenyra and Laenor are a mixed race, all three of their children are white, as Harwin Strong (Ryan Corr) has had a secret affair with Rhaenyra and fathered their children.

Despite the kids’ obvious looks, making it clear that Laenor is clearly not their father, King Viserys (Paddy Considine) doesn’t want to hear any gossip about it, even subtly threatening his wife if she brings it up again.

The King is clearly content with living a lie, though a fight with Ser Criston Cole (Fabien Frankel) leads Hand of the King Lyonel Strong (Gavin Spokes) to send his son back to his home in Harrenhaal.

Last week’s episode ended with quite a shock, with Larys Strong (Matthew Needham) betraying his own family to form an alliance with Queen Alicent.

Larys hired some thugs (before sticking out their tongues) to follow Lyonel and Harwin to Harrenhaal, setting their room on fire and killing them both.

Queen Alicent was clearly terrified by the revelation of his actions, as Larys hears Alicent tell in the trailer that she must be “feared” to be an effective queen.
