House of the Dragon Season 2 will feature several significant events, like the Red Keep plot, Rhaenys Targaryen’s remounting of Meleys, and the hunt for additional Dragonriders.

In addition, season 2 could include a pivotal passage from George R.R. Martin’s 2018 book Fire & Blood, titled “The Blood and Cheese.

“Since Viserys’ remarks on his deathbed, Alicent, and Rhaenyra have worked to steer a calm course amid the ensuing tumult.

That will change with Lucerys’ passing, though, as Rhaenyra is expected to demand swift compensation for her son’s brutal murder.

Aemond is unlikely to think Lucerys’ death was an accident in light of her prior behavior. Rhaenyra might want a son for a son and attempt to take the kingdom and Aemond’s life if Aemond demanded an eye for an eye.

When they were beginning to rebuild their weak link, this would further strain the relationship between Alicent and Rhaenyra is not permanent.

We may see more of the Houses that Game of Thrones viewers are familiar with now that the war campaign is progressing as planned.
