House of the Dragon Episode 4’s Most Memorable Dragon Moment is Not at Rook’s Rest

The latest episode of House of the Dragon, titled ‘The Red Dragon and the Gold’, featured an epic aerial battle, but the highlight dragon scene actually occurred earlier.

The three-way match between Aegon, Aemond, and Rhaenys, along with their dragons, marked the end of the Battle at Rook’s Rest. This was a thrilling moment for House of the Dragon fans who enjoy the presence of these majestic creatures, but it was not the most remarkable dragon-related scene in the episode.

The event actually takes place earlier in Season 2 Episode 4, as Aegon and Rhaenys are getting ready for battle. Aegon, in his drunken state, decides to join the fight and goes to saddle Sunfyre. During this time, he shares a touching moment with his dragon, as Sunfyre affectionately nudges his head against Aegon’s chest.

Although brief, this moment is powerful enough to capture the hearts of viewers who have been eagerly awaiting the appearance of Sunfyre. It has even elicited a sense of empathy for the Targaryen king, who had been advised by Alicent to do nothing at all.

According to a Reddit user, this episode featured one of the most impressive instances of Targaryen-Dragon interactions in the entire GoT and HotD franchise. The brief exchange between Aegon and Sunfyre before the battle, as well as Rhaenys’ connection with Meleys, demonstrated the strong bond between each dragon rider and their dragon.

The bond between these two individuals is strikingly dissimilar to that of Aemond and Luke’s connection with their dragons. Rather than being based on fear and the risk of losing control, the bond between Aegon and his dragon appears to be one of intimacy and companionship.

Additionally, there were others who shared this sentiment, expressing similar thoughts such as, “Aegon’s smile speaks volumes about his happiness in reuniting with his dear friend. It highlights the significance of Sunfyre in his life, especially after receiving discouragement from his own mother, who deemed him unimportant and ineffectual.”

Another person remarked, “That was a truly special moment. Despite everyone using Aegon for their own motives, he finally found someone he could truly bond with.”They also added, “Furthermore, Aegon appeared more resilient and formidable after this encounter with the dragon.”

One user noted, “Out of everyone, Sunfyre is the only living being who loves Aegon unconditionally. While others may have expectations and demands, Sunfyre is always content just being by his side.”

Despite Aegon’s tragic fate following the events at Rook’s Rest, where he will spend the remainder of his days in excruciating agony from his injuries, fans can find solace in the one brief moment of tenderness shared between him and Sunfyre. Even though it was brought on by his consumption of alcohol.
