    I like this take of Alicent. She is the more emotional, anxiety-fused and mentally vulnerable one out of her and Rhaenyra. To be honest, this is relatable. This also makes her villainous antagonistic motivation more reasonable. Must be really sad tho to be in Alicent’s position, always living in fear, melancholy and anxiety. She is as much of a villain as she is a victim.

    Sad how Alicent and Rhaenyra's friendship broke because they both have their own duties. Very realistic and emotional. I'm really excited for this show and what comes next.

    • Thess Fangirl

      @lartisteautravail Because Rhaenyra looked up him as example, and he influenced her to do stupid crap thinking it won't have consequences exactly how he always gets away with everything. That's how she landed in trouble in the first place.

      its funny how Alicent lied, but when it comes to Rhaenyra, she just ommited. Alicent also ommited till she was forced to lied. The difference is the real motive. Alicent ommited because her goal was to seduce the king. Rhaenyra ommited to protect herself! but in the end, both did lie to each other! And both resent each other for that! This is also associated with other issues, that each girl, saw by her own prespective.
      -In the eyes of Rhaenyra, she is the true queen, and she doesnt need to explain herself. She do as she pleases, because she is the future queen. Her nature is to confront her fathers wishes and showing she is not submissive, because she have character and will change this world! She sees Alicent as some mother replacer, that she could choose not to accept the wedding if she was stronger and said No!
      -In Alicent eyes, she worked to become queen and is fullfiling her dutie as a wife and a woman. She is alone, the king dismiss her opinions, and always takes Rhaenyra side. No matter how wrong she is. Rhaenyra was the reason that otto was exiled even when he told the truth (the truth that the princess was no more virgin) and the king took her defense, despite sending moon tea to his daughter! Alicent sees Rhaenyra as spoilled girl, that do as she pleases, without thinking about the consequences. People still turn eyes away when Laenor is not the true father! But her´s are sons of Viserys and still they are not choose to be king. Her kids are a threat to Rhaenyra legacy....
      Theres no right or wrong, instead two different prespectives of the same coin.

      Vicerys should just proclaim loud and strong that Rhaenyra is the heir come what may and that he would allow nothing to come in the way of her getting the throne. Only this can definitely cut Alicent's wings for good.

    For anyone unfamiliar with Olivia Cooke’s work, she’s been consistently brilliant in a bunch of films like Thoroughbreds, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, and Sound of Metal. And this clip alone really showcases why Olivia was picked for this role. And given where Alicent is now, her strength and confidence is beautifully conveyed by Olivia. Can’t wait for more.

    • margareth michelina
      margareth michelina 2 days ago

      @Tøøbà Khalid I agree. For some reason, I see adult Rhaenyra looks older than adult Alicent and Olivia Cooke is still 28 years old in real life. Even though Alicent is supposed to be 1-2 years older than Rhaneyra. At least the younger counterparts looked like they are on the same age.

      I love Olivia and her acting but it’s kinda weird watching her play adult version of Alicent who’s supposed to be older than Rhaenyra but somehow she looks as young as the younger Alicent.

    I can see where Alicent is coming from. She didn't want the destiny her father planned, but she obeyed it anyway.
    She supported Rhaenyra at first but became disillusioned seeing Rhaenyra carelessness and getting away with doing what she likes but at everyone's expense. Similar to Ned's feelings towards Joffrey, Alicent believes Rhaenyra doesn't stand for honor and decency; not an example for the Queen. Alicent wants her kids legitimized not because she wants power, but because she did everything right and knowing Rhaenyra is not one to follow the rules and can kill them. Alicent has a touch of Ned and Cersei.

  • LaMario

    I think the near manic frustration over being the only one who realizes the heir apparent has three bastards secretly in line of succession is what drives her to try and knife Rhaenyra

    • MochaMa

      @The Lost Unicorn but everyone does not follow the rules. And she’s a better leader than alicent who knows nothing political other than spreading rumors.

    • moppis
      moppis 3 days ago

      Exactly, also the only claim Targs have to the throne really is that they’re Targs. They haven’t been ruling for very long at this point. What happens when one of Rhaenyra’s sons, who are obviously bastards, take the throne and feel threatened by the competition - aka Visery’s male heirs who are very obviously his. I understand why people don’t like Alicent, but you can hear her frustration and concern.

    • Thess Fangirl

      @free bird Is it jealousy or is it because Rhae can't actually fulfill her duty and would be a terrible ruler too? A ruler who thinks no laws apply to her is just a tyrant. How can she trust her?

      I don't blame her. Everyone has to follow the rules but rhaenyra is hellbent on doing what she wants and that is not a good quality for a potential leader. Not to mention her bastards are ahead of Aegon. It's like the cersei situation and it's sickening

  • Ryan M

    You honestly kinda feel for Alicent, seeing what she's been turned into. Brought to court, not as a person, but as an asset of political leverage for her house. Just seeing her life at King's Landing from a teenage girl into a grown woman, makes me think back to the original series and how bitter Cersei was for living a similar life.

    She's obviously using the excuse of "exposing" the children not being Leanor's (they're obviously not his, but nobody gives a damn and she's pissed at that lol) as an excuse to further the claims of her children to the throne. 'Cause what if they're not Leanor's, Rhaenyra is the heir to the throne, not Leanor. And if it's a question of "honor", Leanor seems very supportive of Rhaenyra and recognizes the children as his and he and Rhaenyra even named one after his dead lover, Joffrey.

    • MochaMa

      @귀한 no one was "taking her baby". Granted it's a bit douchey to separate the baby from the mother. But in medieval times in royal circles, it's not uncommon for the baby to be given to wet nurses pretty soon. What Alicent did was not so out there.

      @Promise Mabu We don't know if Otto actually ordered Mysaria to spy on Rhaenyra. For all we know, Mysaria could have fed him that info on Daemon's behalf, or that she was doing so independently. And even if it does turn out that Mysaria was doing the spying on Otto's orders, he may have just told her to watch Daemon, not necessarily Rhaenyra. I mean, I don't think that anyone would've expected Rhaenyra to sneak out into town at night. Definitely seems more up Daemon's alley.

    I hated Alicent in the books. She was really the source cause of the dance of dragons. She disobeyed King Visery’s order of naming Rhaenyra as his heir simply because she wanted her son Aegon to be king which is what started the war. It doesn’t matter if Rhaenyra was a woman, the king can name his daughter as his heir if he so wishes and it’s the duty of all lords and those in court to follow said kings will after his death. Alicent usurped the throne for her son Aegon from Rhaenyra and had no right to do so.

    There is a lot of people saying that the ones who like Alicent Hightower are horrible people, but I remembere that Cersei had a lot of fans and she was far more horrible and cruel than Alicent currently.

    Smart of HBO to release clips of the new Rhaenyra and Alicent. It sort of softens the blow before their introduction next episode. I still wonder why they didn't do the time jump at the end of 5, the whole cliffhanger with the King collapsing was immediately undermined by the promo showing a very much alive, if mad-looking, King Viserys.

    Yall need to remember that Olivia and Emma were casted first, yes Milly and Emily did great jobs and they will be missed but These characters arent their roles, the show is just now truely starting, the first 5 eps were like a prologue in some kind of way.

      Yeah especially when Alicent is supposed to be really gorgeous and high to the point that Rhaenyra feels insecure under her presence. But in the show it’s the opposite thing.

    Honestly, I am already adjusted with the new actors with these clips alone..They already are the characters they grew up to be
    ..I see no issue...In fact, had they continued with the same actresses with just make up..it wouldn't have been that believable..Milly and Emily look very much younger than their actual ages..

    The most notable difference between Emily and Olivia regarding looks is their very distinct hairline. That could've been (not so) easily fixed with a wig, though they probably didn't think it was worth the trouble. Fine by me as long as the acting is on point.
