    The dynamic here between Laenor and Rhaenyra is everything and communicates so much about them in just a few lines - their loyalty to one another, their affection - the look Rhaenyra shoots him when he asks if it was painful giving birth! 😆 And Laenor’s mounting rage that Alicent would put Rhaenyra in this position - straight up ride or die for his cousin-wife-friend right there!

    When Laenor said “what could she possibly want, I thought we were past this”- I think this is a hint that Laenor accepts Rhaenyra’s kids as his own. Hes always recognized those boys as his own regardless of what people says. That makes me LOVE Laenor so much 😢

      Im not sure where you're getting that from, it seems much more likely to me that he's expressing his frustration that Alicent is being so petty in forcing Rhaenyra to attend her right after giving birth. He's saying that he thought the two women would be on more amicable terms by now.

    To everyone asking why Rhaenyra is even allowing Alicent to push her around like this. The way I interpret is that
    1. If Rhaenyra doesn't do it, they'll just say that she's trying to hide the baby. There's already that rumour in court that the kids aren't Laenor's.
    2. To portray Rhaenyra as weak because of chilbirth/babies and therefore unfit to rule. The already misogynistic lords of Westeros will definitely jump on that bandwagon.
    3. Alicent knows how painful childbirth is and what happened to Rhaenyra's mother, so this is another powerplay by her.

    • X Y

      @H K Alicent's character is flushed out in great details in the show, in the book she was just the "evil stepmother/evil queen" archetype, in the show we got to see where she came from, who she is, what she's like and why she does what she does - the seeds of conflict between her and Rhaenyra were sown when Viserys decided to marry her, she did not tell Rhae about this and such betrayal drove a wedge between them, then Rhaenyra betrayed her trust and indirectly got Otto fired, from then on there was no turning back - there is only one iron throne, the winner takes all, and the loser dies.
      A deeper layer of this is how Rhae and Alicent are perceiving feudalistic patriarchy in very different ways, thus taking drastically different courses of action, one defiant but compromising, the other obedient but doubtful. Ultimately they are both victims of feudalism, and since we already know how the Dance turns out, Rhae's struggle sadly fails.

      Great interpretation! I feel the same way. And though people here are very judgemental of Alicent, I still feel sympathy towards her as of episode 5. We must not forget that, although Alicent shouldn’t have kept her courtship with the king a secret from her friend, she was put up to it by her controlling father and she wasn’t even 18 yet. After the marriage, Alicent has gone out of her way to defend Rhaenyra, even against her own father. She only turned on her when she realized that Rhaenyra not only lied and got her father dismissed from court, but that she doesn’t know her former friend anymore. Alicent honestly believed in Rhaenyra, but seeing her lie, even on her mother’s memory, showed that she and her kids could be in danger after all and that her father had been right to caution her. I think this is a super interesting arc and while I understand Rhaenyra‘s frustration at the whole succession thing, Alicent didn’t do anything to her. Even after she’d become queen, she always upheld Rhyaenyra‘s right to the throne. I love the dragon princess, but she’s not supposed to be the hero, neither in the book, nor the show.

      @Bei Bei Laenor also knows that his 'sons' not having a drop of his own blood won't cause any bloodline problems in the future. Jacaerys is still a Targaryen. Lucerys, the heir to Driftmark, isn't a Velaryon, but they solved that problem by betrothing him to Rhaena, who definitely is a Velaryon. So Luke's descendants would be true Velaryons.

      I think she's still a tough cookie. But she's older now and she knows the ways of politics. Until she becomes Queen, she can't outwardly challenge Alicent who has many supporters, as she had birthed the king many sons who can challenge Rhaenyra's claim to the throne. Add to that, the fact that Rhaenyra has produced sons (I believe this is her third son in succession) of questionable lineage is putting her in a precarious position to lose her crown before she has even gotten the chance to wear it.

      @Black panther I'm not saying she isn't cruel, she obviously is. I'm fairly certain Rhaenyra could snitch to her father and make him reprimand Alicent, because he obviously loves and cares for Rhaenyras well-being and health. Rhaenyra didn't do that and instead chose to obey, to not give Alicent the satisfaction of Rhae appearing weak. Just my personal view on the scene, but none of us will really know until the full episode is out. :)

She did this to cause her physical pain and that's messed up.

    Emma is a great casting choice as the main protagonist for the rest of the series. The acting is top notch! If the trailer was anything to go by, the performance will be very strong! Since Rhaenyra is a mother of at least 3 children, it makes sense to not use a young girl and "age" with the show like some of you have said below. It makes no sense to drag a story out for that long when the "Targaryen civil war" starts when Viserys dies.

    I had hoped Laenor and Rhae would keep their friendship but this is truly lovely and more than I could ever ask,, he's so very supportive!! His smile at the start is so sweet, regardless of the children's paternity it's clear he cares for them which is more than most men there
    Emma's acting does shine in this scene, and this really states how bad Rhaenyra and Alicent's relationship is, imagine making a mother drag herself out of labor bed with her child

      I think Alicent wanted baby to be brought to her it is Rhaenyra who chose to go because she don't trust Alicent to be alone with her baby

      That was sole purpose of it, wasn't it? Alicent made her walk through the crowd holding the baby so they will see that baby does not resemble her husband. Aye, people have eyes.

    Lo más bonito de esa situación es que Laenor es un bueno. Sabe que no son su hijos pero esta feliz que el parto salió bien y ve un bebe saludable.
    No será "esposo" pero es amigo, compañero de Rhaenyra y debe querer mucho a sus hijos.

    Emma is so amazing as Rhaenyra already! There is also such a strong resemblance to the actress that played her mother Aemma. Can't wait for Emma to face off against Olivia.

    I am very happy to see Rhaenyra and Laenor have a neutral understanding relationship. (like marrying best friend (not in a romantic way though) I know they are cousins but respectful to each other)
    At least that instead of hating one another. I hope their relationship stays calm like this

    Alicent obviously wants to humiliate her. But she is the heir to the throne and just gave birth. This could be life-threatening for her and the child being away from the safe internment of the nursery, why does she go with it?
    Pride is pride, but telling that she is not feeling well would have shown more power for her dismissing the Queen and at the same time having a valid excuse to not look like she is dismissing her. If I was her I wouldn't have moved a finger and if she insisted I would have proclaimed that she tries to put my life in danger, and harm my child. Not sure how Viserys was at that moment but his wife died/''prematurely murdered'' in childbirth so his queen putting in danger his daughter after childbirth wouldn't sit well with him I am sure. Then again maybe it's the period when he was ill and Alicent ruled hor him.
    Anyway seems bizarre that Raenhyra and her husband who despite everything seems to care for her as a friend lets this to happen. Can't wait to see the episode and the entire context of this situation.

      As we saw in photos depicting late Viserys, I imagine he is far from even making proper decisions. We all saw how he looked with that mask, his hair gone, and disfigured face. He might not even be strong enough, physically, to even sit on the iron throne

      Alicent outranks Rhaenyra right now. She is the Queen. Rhaenyra may be heir but she is still a princess which makes her rank lower.

    When he asked, “Was it terribly painful?” Rhaenyra looked like she would have slapped him right there if she’d had the energy to raise her arm.
    It was a total, “Are you kidding?” look.
