What happens in House of the Dragon Season 2, Episode 4?

The Battle at Rook’s Rest serves as the climax of House of the Dragon season 2, episode 4, driving the narrative closer to conflict. Previously, Criston Cole took control of several castles for the Greens, including Rosby, Stokeworth, and Duskendale. Meanwhile, Aegon’s behavior grows increasingly erratic. Criston essentially goes rogue and plots to capture Rook’s Rest, a seemingly insignificant castle in the Crownlands, without Aemond’s knowledge.  

Rhaenys volunteers as Rhaenyra prepares to send one of her dragons to battle upon her return to Dragonstone. Upon arrival, Criston signals Aemond from nearby on Vhagar, revealing their covert strategy: the attack on Rook’s Rest is a ploy to lure a dragon and tip the odds in their favor. However, Aegon unexpectedly joins the fray on a dragonback, intoxicated, escalating the chaos. During the battle, Aemond attacks his own brothers Aegon and Sunfyre, causing them to crash into the forest.

What can we expect in House of the Dragon Season 2, Episode 5?

In the aftermath depicted in the episode 5 teaser, Aegon’s survival is assured despite sustaining serious injuries during the battle. Despite the loss of a key council member and an experienced dragon in Rhaenys, Rhaenyra displays unwavering determination. She continues her campaign to conquer the Riverlands, leveraging Daemon’s fiery threats to ensure compliance from resistant factions.

Mysaria, who played a role in planning the treacherous events of Blood and Cheese, ominously remarks in the trailer’s closing moments, “There is more than one way to fight a war.” This suggests that the Blacks may be plotting a retaliatory move in response to Rhaenys’s tragic demise.
