Daemon Targaryen meets Alys Rivers in House of the Dragon Season 2 Episode 3

In House of the Dragon Season 2 Episode 2, we see Daemon going off on his own after his argument with Rhaenyra. In the third episode, we see that Daemon took his dragon, Caraxes, with him to infiltrate and capture the castle of Harrenhal all by himself, and is successful in doing so. There he meets the enigmatic Alys Rivers, a bastard who has been rumored to possess magical powers and foresight.

She is first present when Simon Strong surrenders the castle to Daemon. After Daemon has his eerie dream sequence, Alys tells him that he will die at Harrenhal, hinting at the rumored curse.

Why is Alys Rivers important?

Alys Rivers, a sorceress, becomes intimately involved with Aemond Targaryen, King Viserys I Targaryen’s second son in Fire & Blood. She plays a pivotal role in the Dance of the Dragons, with her magical prowess and ties to Aemond positioning her as a significant force in the ensuing power struggles and conflicts of the Civil War.
