    The dynamic here between Laenor and Rhaenyra is everything and communicates so much about them in just a few lines - their loyalty to one another, their affection - the look Rhaenyra shoots him when he asks if it was painful giving birth! 😆 And Laenor’s mounting rage that Alicent would put Rhaenyra in this position - straight up ride or die for his cousin-wife-friend right there!

      @ldrockmusic Yes, that’s what they agreed to, and therein lies loyalty. The very definition of loyalty is a strong feeling of support or allegiance. If a couple enters into a relationship with a mutual understanding of what the relationship looks like and they adhere to that while supporting each other (as it appears is happening in this scene) that is loyalty, my friend.

    When Laenor said “what could she possibly want, I thought we were past this”- I think this is a hint that Laenor accepts Rhaenyra’s kids as his own. Hes always recognized those boys as his own regardless of what people says. That makes me LOVE Laenor so much 😢

    I admire the relationship between Laenor and Rhaenyra. They married out of duty and aren’t in love with each other but still respect and care for each other. Laenor even tries to be a caring husband and loving father.

      @Janez Kette no Rhaenys is the one who didn’t have silver hair due to her mother being Jocelyn Baratheon. She had black hair with some silver streaks. So in the book, when both Laenor and Rhaenyra have silver hair but Jace, Luke and Joffrey have black hair, they justify it by claiming that it was due to Rhaenys having black hair, which is reasonable. But in the show, they change the Velaryons skin color to black, keep Harwin and the children white, and change Rhaenys’ hair to completely silver, it kinda made it too obvious

      @6alcantara Acting is about presenting as someone who is not yourself. Of course cis-people can play trans people and the other way around. Besides that, "they" is not only used by trans-people.
      Its really not difficult at all. Some people just want it to be difficult so that they can complain about it.

    • 6alcantara
      6alcantara 3 days ago

      @Naina exactly, I thought that the special pronouns were only for transgenders, is Emma trans? is Rhaenyra trans? I thought only trans could be played trans, and hetero "cis" could only be played by hetero "cis"... all this is so complicated and nonsensical.

    • Esteicy
      Esteicy 4 days ago +1

      @Naina There has been cis men playing women and cis women playing men, acting is about playing someone that isn't exactly like yourself.
      Also women can still use they/them, it doesn't mean a rejection of "womanhood".
      You are just weird.

      She went on her own, only the baby was summoned. She could have sent her husband and her guards but she fears for the child's life. And she should given the nonsense she is perpetrating.

  • Debodipta Paul
    Debodipta Paul 7 days ago +144

    To everyone asking why Rhaenyra is even allowing Alicent to push her around like this. The way I interpret is that
    1. If Rhaenyra doesn't do it, they'll just say that she's trying to hide the baby. There's already that rumour in court that the kids aren't Laenor's.
    2. To portray Rhaenyra as weak because of chilbirth/babies and therefore unfit to rule. The already misogynistic lords of Westeros will definitely jump on that bandwagon.
    3. Alicent knows how painful childbirth is and what happened to Rhaenyra's mother, so this is another powerplay by her.

    • Debodipta Paul
      Debodipta Paul Day ago

      @Master Plo Koon and that exactly is a reason why they'd argue women should remain in the private sphere.

    • Les Mortimers
      Les Mortimers 4 days ago +2

      Great interpretation! I feel the same way. And though people here are very judgemental of Alicent, I still feel sympathy towards her as of episode 5. We must not forget that, although Alicent shouldn’t have kept her courtship with the king a secret from her friend, she was put up to it by her controlling father and she wasn’t even 18 yet. After the marriage, Alicent has gone out of her way to defend Rhaenyra, even against her own father. She only turned on her when she realized that Rhaenyra not only lied and got her father dismissed from court, but that she doesn’t know her former friend anymore. Alicent honestly believed in Rhaenyra, but seeing her lie, even on her mother’s memory, showed that she and her kids could be in danger after all and that her father had been right to caution her. I think this is a super interesting arc and while I understand Rhaenyra‘s frustration at the whole succession thing, Alicent didn’t do anything to her. Even after she’d become queen, she always upheld Rhyaenyra‘s right to the throne. I love the dragon princess, but she’s not supposed to be the hero, neither in the book, nor the show.

    as if I couldn't hate Alicent more.... Outright cruel of her to summon her literally moments after birth. And wow, I'm gonna miss Milly but I'm so excited to see Emma as Rhaenyra!! Incredible already in this short clip. And I'm loving Rhae and Laenor's friendship in the show. So supportive of her and seems like he'd be a great dad to "his" kids. Team Black 🖤

      We all know that no mother after given birth would let her child be brought somewhere without her and remember that this is a time were there is tension between them so it makes that she's going

      @Keenan Sweeeney is alicent a princess or a woman? It doesn’t matter what house she is apart of. She is a she. She married into a kingdom, at her fathers persuasion, a kingdom that turned her against her father and ultimately banished him. When she realized the truth, she became “evil” but valid. She has the greatest character arc of the show at the moment, if you disagree you are not paying attention.

  • Atrajit Roy

    Laenor almost seems like a caring 'normal' brother in this scene. He was the closest thing to a brother Rhaenyra had while growing up, and despite having different orientations, he genuinely seems to love her platonically, like any non-Targaryen brother would.

    • Atrajit Roy

      @Bei Bei Laenor also knows that his 'sons' not having a drop of his own blood won't cause any bloodline problems in the future. Jacaerys is still a Targaryen. Lucerys, the heir to Driftmark, isn't a Velaryon, but they solved that problem by betrothing him to Rhaena, who definitely is a Velaryon. So Luke's descendants would be true Velaryons.

    this was cruel.. by laenor velaryon and rhaenyra's reaction this is not the first time alicent has done this to them, imagine having to go through this every time you give birth to a child, and alicent knows that rhaenyra's mother, aemma arryn, died in childbirth, she does this to humiliate her stepdaughter as well as checking the babies' appearance to see if they are legitimate. I loved the complicity and friendship of rhaenyra and laenor it seems like they are making the best of their situation

      @Julian Left nobody cares. Emma was cast first and Milly afterwards. They both did well, and you could tell Emma is exceptional at being Rhanaeyra. Stop being such a baby and watch the show if you want. If you don't like it, don't watch or become a director and make your own show.

      @sweetstjens You do realize people have traits that they maintain regardless of age right? That's what he said. Why are you not making any sense? They could've gone for an actress that has similar traits OR age Mily digitally. The latter would've cost more money (which they have) and the first would've required more casting. Regardless of all this, nobody is wrong for pointing out that the 2 actresses playing Rhaenyra have nothing in common, looks wise, and that that breaks immersion a bit.

      ​@Dustin Although rare, It's not impossible for dark hair to show in the offspring of two blondes (genetic mutations). It's happened in real life, even with darker skin and eyes skipping generations and showing up later. Genetics are very complex even with the rules of dominant/recessive traits.
      If we apply the rules to GOT, Alicent and Rhaenys (book version) should've had some children with dark hair and didn't. So I think it's safe to say GOT genetics don't follow the rules. Since trait inheritance is inconsistent and there appears to be no rules about dominant/recessive traits, if all of Alicent's children can be blonde, then perhaps Laenor and Rhaenyra do carry the dark hair gene, even if we all strongly suspect that's not the case lol.

      @Iside It appears that you have seen the latest episode? My comment was written before the new episode and we didn't have the context of Alicent merely asking for the baby, not for Rhaneyra to present the baby for her. I didn't use the word "stubborn" as a negative term in this case.
      I now perceive this scene differently as I have seen the context of the birth and discussions around it. I feel like what she did was a form of malicious compliance (regardless of the consequences to herself) AKA: "As you wish... I will allow you to see the baby, but you're going to have to see me too."

      @DaisyDen how can a mother who has just given birth being asked immediately to see her child and her obviously wanting to go with it because she has tension with the queen is called being stubborn?
      Please no mother after literally given birth would let their child alone nor with their stepmother's who used to be your best friend who now hates you

    Emma is a great casting choice as the main protagonist for the rest of the series. The acting is top notch! If the trailer was anything to go by, the performance will be very strong! Since Rhaenyra is a mother of at least 3 children, it makes sense to not use a young girl and "age" with the show like some of you have said below. It makes no sense to drag a story out for that long when the "Targaryen civil war" starts when Viserys dies.

      As for here, I saw in a HOTD trailer where Rhaenys asks Alicent, "Have you never imagined yourself on the iron throne?" So basically, for now she's doing justified stuff "for" her children, but her actions start the civil war that ruins the entire dynasty. So yeah motherly love can be fatal and Cersei and Alicent are both burning proofs of that. There you go. Alicent is Cersei 2.0. Proved.

      I think she's still a tough cookie. But she's older now and she knows the ways of politics. Until she becomes Queen, she can't outwardly challenge Alicent who has many supporters, as she had birthed the king many sons who can challenge Rhaenyra's claim to the throne. Add to that, the fact that Rhaenyra has produced sons (I believe this is her third son in succession) of questionable lineage is putting her in a precarious position to lose her crown before she has even gotten the chance to wear it.

    Alicent obviously wants to humiliate her. But she is the heir to the throne and just gave birth. This could be life-threatening for her and the child being away from the safe internment of the nursery, why does she go with it?
    Pride is pride, but telling that she is not feeling well would have shown more power for her dismissing the Queen and at the same time having a valid excuse to not look like she is dismissing her. If I was her I wouldn't have moved a finger and if she insisted I would have proclaimed that she tries to put my life in danger, and harm my child. Not sure how Viserys was at that moment but his wife died/''prematurely murdered'' in childbirth so his queen putting in danger his daughter after childbirth wouldn't sit well with him I am sure. Then again maybe it's the period when he was ill and Alicent ruled hor him.
    Anyway seems bizarre that Raenhyra and her husband who despite everything seems to care for her as a friend lets this to happen. Can't wait to see the episode and the entire context of this situation.

    Laenor says "I thought we were past this". That means Alicent has made Rhaenyra do something like this the last two times as well.

    I love how Rhaenyra and Laenor is a great friend. We can definitely see it, by how they treat each other.

    "I took a lance to the shoulder once" lol Laenor trying his best to say to Rhaenyra that child birth isnt so bad.

    I genuinely look forward each week to sitting down and watching this each Sunday night. That is rare these days with all the garbage that is put out and how streaming changed the game. This has become appointment television again. Props to HBO and the writers and everyone involved. Please keep this up.

      Yes! This is the first time in a long long time where I've actually felt excited to watch a new episode of a show every week. I genuinely can't remember the last time I've been this invested in a tv show.

      @Boulbi Boulga we are supporting him, by watching the show. Not everyone has the time or care to read the books.

    You can definitely tell rhaynera’s children are going to be more loved after them alicents because they don’t turn into monsters. Rhaynera looks at them like a mother should not a cold uncaring way like alicent treats her kids. Considering rhaynera’s children are accepted by rhaynera, laenor, visery’s and laenors family as well as daemon in the future says a lot.

    They are actually cute together - all things considered ^^'
    It's sad we will no longer see the same Rhaenyra, but her older version seems totally on-point

    Everything from this scene looks and feels perfect, I wasn’t to happy with the ending last episode but I’m excited to see how they can build off the set ups and of course the time jump

    Wow I'm actually impressed at how the actress that plays the older version has mannerisms that remind of the younger version! Great job from the cast and crew!

    Haha I love how he's supporting her as a more a friend/cousin even if they're forced to wed despite his orientation n her want, they even name "their last child" after his deceased lover. House Valyron is so interesting and my favorite part of the show so far

    She's still going through the contractions of afterbirth, insane that alicent summoned her like that. I bet viserys is completely useless by now and alicent is the boss around everyone, especially with two boys for the future. Poor Rhaenyra, so sweet Laenor 💕

      Three, at this point in time Alicent has three sons though we've not seen the youngest in the trailers. She has Aegon, Aemond and Daeron.
