“I’m really interested in picking up with all of those characters that we spent all of this time introducing, particularly Rhaenyra and Alicent’s families, and seeing what happens now that we’ve flipped the chessboard over and spilled the pieces on the ground,” he explained. “How do all those react? That’s the story that we tell in season two and beyond.”
During the Oct. 23 finale episode, Lucerys met his end after his uncle Aemond (Ewan Mitchell)’s dragon Vhagar went after Lucerys’ Arrax, killing the other dragon and Rhaenyra’s son in the process. Though Lucerys’ death was clearly an accident, it cemented his mother’s decision to fight for her crown, confirming the impending Dance of the Dragons.
