In House of the Dragon Episode 4, “King of the Narrow Sea,” things get a little shippy. Let’s talk about it.
It’s been four years since Daemon was last in King’s Landing, and he’s welcomed back by all in the city. The good tidings don’t last long however as Rhaenyra tries to find freedom in a cage. We get more insight into how Alicent is feeling (not great), and Daemon and Rhaenyra grow closer.
