House of the Dragon: Following the death of a major character in Episode 8, Paddy Considine teases’mayhem’ ahead.



Paddy Considine, who plays King Viserys Targaryen on House of the Dragon, discusses what’s next for the show following the explosive episode 8.

House of the Dragon recently released its eighth episode, and the first season is only two episodes away from completion. The Game of Thrones prequel managed to outperform fans’ expectations when it was first announced, and the new show has been received with the same zeal as its predecessor.

Spoiler Alert With the big finale approaching, some major plot twists were expected, and the eighth episode was all about delivering them. King Viserys I (Paddy Considine), one of the show’s most important characters, died as his ailing condition deteriorated. Viserys was portrayed throughout as the King who desired nothing more than for House Targaryen to remain united in the face of any threat and for a suitable Targaryen to sit on the Iron Throne.

Viserys found House Targaryen more divided than ever at the end of his reign, with Queen Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke) and Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy) competing to ensure their children inherited the Iron throne. However, in the most recent episode, Viserys had the opportunity to say his final words to his family, urging them to remain united. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, actor Paddy Considine discussed his character’s heartbreaking final goodbye and teased what lies ahead for House Targaryen.

Considine admitted that Viserys dies in a “noble and dignified” manner after being afflicted for so long. Speaking of how assuming the role of King begins his decline, he stated, “The physical demands of being a king take their toll on the body. So it was interesting to watch him deteriorate. He’s just trying to do the right thing. He gets to say a few words before leaving, which I appreciated.”

The actor went on to say that his biggest mistake was not handing over the throne to his sister Rhaenys. Given that a war will erupt soon after the King’s death, the fight for the Iron Throne and its legitimate successor will begin. According to THR, Considine teased what fans can expect, saying, “It’s absolute destruction, mayhem, and madness.”
