What happens in Episode 2

Fans were left shaken after the tragic death of Ser Arryk Cargyll (played by Luke Tittensor) in the last few minutes of the episode. He was ordered to murder Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D'Arcy) by posing as his brother, which was planned by Arryk's superior, Ser Criston Cole (Fabien Frankel). It ensues in a deadly battle of swords between two brothers, in which Erryk wins. But a few seconds later he kills himself, for bearing the guilt of killing his own brother.

Many fans were also left angry at Ser Criston Cole (Fabien Frankel)'s character, whose ridiculously fraught decision ended up in this tragedy. A fan commented, “Just finished the new House of the Dragon episode and let me just say…I HATE SER CRISTON COLE SOOO MUCH! I hate the way you walk, the way you talk. I hate the way you dress. I hate the way you sneak diss, if I catch a flight it’s gone be direct.” A second one wrote, “New episode and Ser gets more insufferable.”
