Who Will Fall In Episode 5 of ‘House of the Dragon’?

House of the Dragon

House of the Dragon Episode 5: Although the first battle of House of the Dragon Season 2 has come to an end, only one major character was definitively killed in the Battle of Rook’s Rest. Qhile Rhaenys Targaryen, the Queen Who Never Was, was a crucial member of Team Black, indicating that retribution is surely on its way.

Now, drawing from George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood and considering the events of the first four episodes of the season, let’s speculate on who might be the next to meet their end on House of the Dragon in the below given section:


Who will die in Season 2 Episode 5 of House of the Dragon? 

Aegon Targaryen

By the end of the Battle at Rook’s Rest, Aegon’s condition looked dire, but his fate remained uncertain and make us think if he had sustained severe injuries.

After the Aemond’s order for Vhagar to breathe fire during the clash with Rhaenys and Meleys, Aegon and his dragon, Sunfyre, plummeted from the skies..

This has not been give in the book where Aegon dies, so it’s highly unlikely that writers are expected take such a step and end his story now. Also, his future as King of the Seven Kingdoms looks uncertain, and he faces a daunting path to recovery at the very least.



Aemond Targaryen

Aemond, can easily deflect blame for Aegon’s fate by claiming he was trying to protect his brother, especially now that Rhaenys, the sole witness, has now been deceased.

On the other hand, Aemond’s actions in the air led to Aegon’s downfall. If Criston or others suspect Aemond of incapacitating Aegon, it could spell lethal consequences for Aemond upon their return to King’s Landing.

Now, on the Dragonstone side, Rhaenyra along with her supporters might be going angry after they suspect that Aemond has been taken down.



Criston Cole

It looks like there’s no concrete evidence that Ser Criston is in jeopardy, so it might be wishful thinking, but please, remove him from the council room. While he can claim a victory at Rook’s Rest, it wasn’t particularly impressive.

At the same time, the king that he’s looking forward to protect was nearly burned alive, many soldiers perished, and dragons did much of the fighting.
