It was quite a dramatic finish, with a lot of potential stories to unfold in the next episode. Could there be even more death? Will Viserys turn on Rhaenyra? Are certain characters going to betray others? Here are just a few predictions on what could happen:

  • Viserys will be distraught when he learns that Rhaenyra and Laenor have left.
  • Alicent will be too concerned with other issues to focus on Rhaenyra and Laenor’s departure. 
  • Visery’s death will be just around the corner, and that will start the Game of Thrones.
  • And finally, what will Daemon do now that his second wife is dead? Most likely cause absolute chaos.
