She said "It’s different, for sure. When my episodes aired, I was subject to an immediate visibility that I hadn’t experienced before when I was walking down the street. I’m so naïve, but I think I was purposely so because I didn’t want to confront this anxiety. "

What lies ahead for Olivia Cooke’s portrayal of Queen Alicent Hightower?

The two factions are the greens, headed by Queen Alicent in Cooke, and the blacks, popularly known as the party of the princess, headed by Rhaenyra Targaryen in Emma D’Darcy

The Dance of the Dragons, the Targaryen family’s civil war, which is hinted at in the House of the Dragon season 1 finale, may very well be its starting point.

According to the George R.R. Martin novel Fire and Blood, which served as the inspiration for House of the Dragon, the vengeful Rhaenyra did plan retribution for the blood spilled in season 1, episode 10, “The Black Queen,” thus viewers might expect an extension of familial devastation.

Future seasons of House of the Dragons viewers may also anticipate the complicated bond between Alicent and Rhaenyra, which dates back to their early years, to play a role as the drama builds to the dragons’ demise in Westeros. 

Arrow

Viewers should expect duels and conflicts that can have them pulling for both sides given how the program has so far portrayed Alicent, who is a young, multifaceted character affected by the malice of her father.

The dynamic will resemble that of “The Spoils of War,” episode 4 of season 7 of Game of Thrones.

With both sides having dragons fighting alongside them as they enter season 2, the remainder of House of the Dragon will undoubtedly inherit this intricacy and will actually have greater firepower.
