House Of The Dragon Season 2 Episode 4 Easter Eggs You Missed

House of the Dragon season 2, episode 4, is the most dramatic hour of the fantasy series we’ve seen this year. No one is safe as the dragons descend on Westeros in a brutal episode that isn’t without its casualties.

Here are some of the easter eggs you might have missed out on:

  • Opening credits: Keep an eye on these in the latest episode, as once again, they give a bit more context on the season so far. The new Blood and Cheese reference seems to be an added nod to the Burning Mill from the last episode. 
  • Alicent Hightower and Criston Cole: The relationship between Alicent and Criston is one of the big changes from the book, where they are merely courtly rivals. In the latest episode, we see Alicent seemingly terminating a pregnancy from her relationship with the Hand of the King. 
  • Alys Rivers: We finally meet Alys Rivers in this episode, who will be a pivotal character as this story continues. Interestingly, Daemon calls her a witch, and in the books, she is often referred to as such despite it remaining ambiguous whether she has powers. It seems the show is doing away with subtlety on this one.

  • Ser Willem Blackwood: At the council table in Harrenhal, we see a much older version of Ser Willem Blackwood. We first met him as a child in season 1, when he was one of the suitors vying for Rhaenyra’s hand, something he refers to here.
  • Cameos: After Milly Alcock first returned last week, she’s back again in the latest episode of House of the Dragon, along with another dead woman from Daemon’s past. His previous wife, Laena Velaryon, appears to him at the council table serving drinks. 
  • Battle at Rook’s Rest: In the book, the battle plays out very similarly, with one key difference: Aegon is included in Criston’s plan in George R.R. Martin’s version and works with Aemond to take Rhaenys down.
