House Of The Dragon Episode 5 Keeps This Unfortunate Game Of Thrones Tradition Alive

As fans of “Game of Thrones” will know, whenever there’s a wedding in Westeros, tragedy and bloodshed will almost certainly follow. Naturally, the latest wedding in “House of the Dragon” was no exception. As Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Milly Alcock) was set to wed Ser Laenor Velaryon (Theo Nate), tragedy comes to pass.

First, and most notably, Ser Criston Cole (Fabien Frankel) snaps on Ser Joffrey Lonmouth (Solly McLeod) — the lover of Ser Laenor ~ after Lonmouth lewdly suggests a truce that Cole takes as slander against his honor. As Cole’s rage and shame finally erupt, he violently beats Lonmouth to death, smashing his head to a pulp in the process. Of course, this emerges as a reminder that it’s not a good idea to be named Joffrey when there’s a wedding afoot, as a certain brat king of the Lannisters once learned the hard way. Furthermore, King Viserys (Paddy Considine) collapsed during the ceremony, suggesting his death is looming.  

While the most infamous wedding bloodshed took place at The Red Wedding in “Game of Thrones,” an event that saw key characters like Robb (Richard Madden) and Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley) violently murdered, the wedding of Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) to Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer), and the marriage of Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) to Ramsey Bolton (Iwan Rheon) also came with their fair share of awfulness. Truly, marriage is not the cause of celebration in Westeros that it often is in our own world but instead comes with a sense of awful foreboding at what might occur, as the latest episode of “House of the Dragon” plainly shows.
