At the midway point of season 1, The House Of The Dragon seems to be losing some of its steam with a number of subplots and events that don't seem to be properly set up and actually confusing to the audience if they haven't read the books. In this episode, King Viserys goes to Seastone to make nice with House Velaryon and to wed Rhaenyra to Laenor Velaryon. Ser Criston Cole gets SIMPy for Rhaenyra, Daemon ends his marriage and starts eyeing Laena Velaryon, Lyonel Strong is the new Hand of the King and his son Larys starts acting like Littlefinger, and Alicent embraces her role as Queen and starts making some shrewd moves now that her father has left the Red Keep.
