As we inch closer and closer to House of the Dragon Season 2, there are some deaths we’re expecting more than others. War brings death, and Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin is packed with it. Some of those deaths will wait until a later season, though.

There are some deaths that come off the back of Lucerys’s death at the end of the first season. Redanian Intelligence has spotted some filming that suggests that three of these deaths are going to happen this season. Let’s break them down.

Yes, we are treading into spoilers from the book. Keep in mind, the book is more of a retelling of individual stories, which allows a lot of interpretation in the series.

Aegon and Helaena’s son is sure to be murdered

There are photos of Alicent and Helaena in a funeral procession. That procession is clearly for a child, and we know who that child is based on the books. It’s a heartbreaking moment, as well, and it does lead to another death which may or may not take place in House of the Dragon Season 2.

Let’s keep the focus on the child, though. Following the events of Lucerys, Daemon Targaryen makes it clear that the Greens need to pay for this. He arranges for two men, Blood & Cheese, to sneak into the castle at King’s Landing and attack Helaena’s children. Aegon and Helaena’s son, Jaehaerys, is murdered in front of Helaena. There is nothing she can do.

In the books, one of the assailants runs off with Jaehaerys’s head. We can see the head of the child in the funeral procession, so they either get it back or this part of the story is kept out of it. Either way, this boy is sure to die.

Rhaenys and Meleys die in events after this

Redanian Intelligence also spotted scenes that suggest Team Black will lose some pivotal players. It’s all about Rhaenys and her dragon Meleys. At the end of the first season, Rhaenys managed to break her dragon out of the dragonpit and fly away. However, it will lead to their deaths.

The two are led into a trap at the Battle of Rook’s Rest. Aegon and Aemond on their dragons, Sunfyre and Vhagar, attack. Meleys doesn’t back down from the fight against these two large dragons. In fact, she puts up a damn good fight, ripping of part of Sunfyre’s wing and permanently injuring him. Sunfyre isn’t able to fly ever again after that.

However, she doesn’t win in a fight against two dragons. Neither does Rhaenys. Rhaenys falls to her death, and Meleys is eventually overpowered by the two dragons and killed. Her head is taken and dragged through the streets to make a show for Team Green supporters.

This death plays a huge part in Corlys’s storyline after this. In fact, all the deaths play huge parts for other characters, which we could see play out in House of the Dragon Season 2, but we may need to wait until Season 3.
