'House of the Dragon' episode 9 review: Show lets Queen Alicent shine

This week begins with the end of King Viserys Targaryen.

The old chap has seemingly been on death's door for years, even back in the day when Milly Alcock was playing Rhaenyra.

Queen Alicent is notified of his passing in the opening moments of the episode.

The queen and the Hand call together a Small Council meeting, where Otto reveals King Viserys' apparent last words.

That's a gift for them all, as it makes their succession plan easier.
