As you prepare four House of the Dragon season 1 episode 4 this weekend on HBO, there could be more upheaval at King’s Landing.
What is the reason for that? Well, it’s tied very much to the simple fact that King Viserys will be doing his best to choose a new heir — and of course, there’s going to be a good bit more complicated than you’d first think.

On the surface, it’s easy to draw the assumption that he would keep his word to Rhaenyra, given his prior promise and how capable she’s shown herself to be so far. Yet, there are complications. For starters, Daemon’s popularity is likely to grow following the events of this past episode where he thwarted Crabfeeder at the Stepstones. Beyond just that, there’s also the status of Aegon now as the male heir. The King and Alicent Hightower giving birth to a boy completely alters the line of succession. Even though Aegon is only three years old as of this weekend, that may not change things when it comes to the bigger picture.
So if signs point towards Aegon eventually becoming the King, what is going to happen with Rhaenyra and Daemon? What are they going to do about it? The photo above does show the two of them in the midst of some sort of discussion, though there are questions aplenty as to if they could team up against Viserys if things don’t go their way.
The biggest challenge with Daemon to us is rather simple: He’s unpredictable! Would you really trust what he is about to do at any given moment?
