The first season of House of the Dragon did an outstanding job of rounding up everything we’ve grown to appreciate about the Game of Thrones franchise. Dragons, without a doubt, shined brightly, but the show’s most significant components were emotions such as love, passion, desire, sadness, and dread, as well as violence and betrayal. And there will be loads of everything we’ve mentioned so far in Season 2.

Emma D’Arcy teases turmoil in Daemon-Rhaenyra’s relationship

As Westeros gets embroiled under the shadows of war, Daemon and Rhaenyra’s relationship takes a hit. D’Arcy’s Rhaenyra is grieving after the death of her father and son. In a recent interview with AV Club, D’Arcy explained, “I don’t know if they can find solace in each other in the losses. I don’t feel like Daemon can share his experience of losing his brother, so there is a dislocation taking place.”

Daemon feels “unaccepted” by Rhaenyra

The loss of Viserys has also deeply impacted Daemon. Matt Smith explained how Daemon processes grief differently, which leads to violent outbursts. Talking about Rhaenyra and Daemon’s relationship, he said, “I think they can’t unburden themselves from this shadow. The way Viserys died was so horrendous, and they were next to him seeing him decompose. It’s uncomfortable for them both.
