Despite Viserys’ moving plea for unity in episode eight, the royal family is now more divided than ever. That excellent, tense Targaryen supper scene exposed the many cracks undermining the House of the Dragon’s foundations – one tremor and it could all come tumbling down. One tremor such as Queen Alicent misinterprets King Viserys’ last words on the succession of the Iron Throne. Download House of the Dragon S01E09 The Green Council 1080p 720p today.
Alicent thought the King had chosen son Aegon in his dying breath, while Viserys not only wanted Rhaenyra to inherit the Iron Throne but also believed his daughter had been prophesied by Aegon the Conqueror to unite the Seven Kingdoms against the coming darkness.
Otto is seen talking to an anonymous guy, to whom he explains that no one could know who he was and what task he was entrusted with. Maybe he was sending him to catch hold of Aegon’s bastard, or it might be possible that he had entrusted him with the responsibility of finding Aegon himself and keeping him safe until the dust settled down. We are not sure who this man was exactly, but the importance of the mission makes us speculate that he held an important position.
First, we see the empty Iron Throne following the death of King Viserys I in episode eight. It’s a mournful and menacing sight as there’s nothing more deadly in game of thrones than a power vacuum, because of those who seek to fill it.
Ser Otto Hightower, Queen Alicent, and Ser Criston Cole opened the Small Council session that was set down in Westerosi history books as The Green Council. Otto declares “The King is dead” while (what looks like) Ser Criston cleans the blade of his sword. A grieving Alicent tells the council “He told me he wished for Aegon to be king,” while later in the trailer, Otto issues an instruction that the door remains shut until their business is finished their business being the fulfillment of Otto’s decades-long wish that his grandson Aegon inherits the Iron Throne.

Previously on S01E08 The Lord of the Tides
Six years on, Corlys Velaryon, Lord of the Driftmark, is severely wounded fighting in the Stepstones. His brother, Ser Vaemond, petitions King’s Landing to name him as Corlys’ heir, proclaiming Rhaenyra’s son, Lucerys illegitimate. Rhaenyra and Daemon return to the capital to defend Lucerys’ claim. They find King Viserys is bedridden, disfigured, and mentally muddled. Queen Alicent and Ser Otto Hightower now oversee all royal business.
Alicent covers up Prince Aegon raping a handmaiden. Rhaenyra proposes two marriage arrangements to gain Princess Rhaenys’ support. She also implores Viserys to defend her succession, quoting Aegon the Conqueror’s dream about the Prince That Was Promised. As Ser Vaemond’s petition is presented at court, Viserys, barely ambulatory, enters the throne room and declares Lucerys the Driftmark heir.
When an enraged Vaemond denounces Rhaenyra as a whore and her children bastards, Daemon beheads him. During a feast, the family appears to mend their differences. After Viserys leaves, Aemond makes a veiled insult against Rhaenyra’s three eldest sons, inciting a fight. Viserys, near death, mutters parts of Aegon the Conqueror’s dream, which Alicent believes refers to their son, Aegon. Alicent’s lady-in-waiting, Tayla, is secretly providing Daemon’s former mistress, Mysaria, with information.
