After the coup at Hightower and the orchestrated ascension of Aegon II to the throne, terms were issued to Rhaenyra at Dragonstone that would allow for a peaceful transition without bloodshed. However, Aemond’s murder of Lucerys not only took peace off the table as a viable option, but enraged Rhaenyra in such a way that the Greens would feel the full force of her power. Although her family’s betrayal has hurt Rhaenyra deeply, it is her son’s death that will force her to take action and begin the Dance of the Dragons.
With no turning back, Rhaenyra and her council will stage their assault on the Greens, strategically attacking their allies as a frontal assault will not win public support and their numbers of dragon riders are low. As war looms, there is nothing but death and grief in the near future for Rhaenyra and Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke).
