Rhaenys arrives on dragonback to drop the bombshell about Viserys dying, and Daemon makes a comment about her being able to kill them all.

Erryk brings the crown and says he will pledge his allegiance to the Queen.

Rhaenyra loses her child the moment she learns about it and declares that she's ready to become Queen and fight back.

Daemon wants to make Dragonstone look strong from the outside, even though they don't have many people.

Corlys wakes up, and Rhaenys says what has happened. He doesn't want to save Rhaenyra at first and then realizes it's the best foot forward.

Then it comes to everyone picking how to shore up allies.

The boys go off on separate missions, with Lucerys going to Storm's End to ask Borros about working with the Black Queen.

He laughs because there is no offerings, and wants to know why.

Aemond wants to take one of his eyes, and chases him on dragon back. Aemond doesn't want to kill him, but Vhagar goes into autopilot and kills both the dragon and his rider.

Rhaenyra learns about it at the last minute and finds herself crumbling to the ground.

The merciful Queen is no longer here, and it's time for the Dance to truly begin.

House of the Dragon Season 1 Episode 10 Quotes

Rhaenys: Those boys will not be safe so long as Aegon is king.
Corlys: Rhaenyra was complicit in our son's death. That girl destroys everything she touches.
Rhaenys: That girl is holding the realm together at present. Every man standing around the Painted Table urges her to plunge the realm into war. Rhaenyra is the only one who's demonstrated restraint.

Rhaenyra: Princess Rhaenys, might we hope for news of Lord Corlys's recovery?
Rhaenys: Viserys is dead. I grieve this loss with you, Rhaenyra. My cousin. Your father. Possessed a kind heart. There is more. Aegon has been crowned as his successor.
Daemon: They crowned him. How did Viserys die?
Rhaenys: I could not say.
Daemon: How long ago? A day past, perhaps two. I was made a prisoner in my quarters while the Queen made her preparations.
Daemon: Viserys has been slain. Alicent demanded you declare for Aegon.
Rhaenys: She did. I refused her.
Daemon: And yet you are alive.
Rhaenys: The High Septon crowned Aegon in the Dragonpit. I witnessed it myself just before I fled on Maelys. They crowned him before the masses. So that the masses would see him as their rightful king.
Daemon: That whοre of a queen murdered my brother and stole his throne, and you could have burned more for it.
Rhaenys: A war is like to be fought over this treachery, to be sure. But that war is not mine to begin. I only rushed this warning to you out of loyalty to my husband and to my house. The greens are coming for you, Rhaenyra.
