In an attempt to intimidate his nephew, Aemond threatened to take out Lucerys’ eye and later went after the young prince on dragon’s back. The situation escalated to a bad one when Lucerys’ dragon Arrax blew fire on Aemond’s dragon Vhagar. This action prompted Vhagar to pursue Arrax with all her might, killing the dragon and Rhaenyra’s son in the process.
Aemond clearly didn’t want that outcome as he yelled at the beast, “Vhagar, no. No!”
Although fans of George RR Martin‘s novel Fire & Blood, which inspired the Game of Thrones prequel series, anticipated that ending, Lucerys’ death was still devastating to watch. The death of Lucerys not only cemented his mother’s decision to fight for her crown and confirmed the bloody Targaryen Civil War (known as the Dance of the Dragons), but also hinted that every member of the Targaryen family could be in danger .
We’re also such fans of the sweet young prince that we’re just sad to see him go.
