Home of the Dragon: Will Laenor Be in Season 2? Concept

Whereas “Home of the Dragon” hasn’t shied away from a variety of main deaths in its first season alone, one character truly has managed to get a much less brutal ending than his e-book counterpart. We’re speaking, after all, about Laenor Velaryon, Rhaenyra Targaryen’s first husband who meets a tragic finish on the web page however will get a cheerful(ish) send-off on display. With a second season already within the works, we’re beginning to marvel if Laenor might make one other look down the road.

Is Laenor within the Dance of the Dragons within the E-book?

The e-book “Fireplace & Blood” appears fairly clear on this: Laenor has no position to play within the civil battle. Based on the e-book’s historians, he dies a number of years earlier than King Viserys I dies and the battle begins. Reportedly, he quarrels with one in every of his “favorites” (aka lovers), Ser Qarl Correy, in a market someday. The ensuing combat results in Ser Qarl killing Laenor in broad daylight after which vanishing, with rumors abounding that he had been paid off by Daemon Targaryen in order that Daemon might marry Rhaenyra.

Whereas Laenor is lengthy useless by the point of the battle within the books, his household do play a big position. His (authorized, although most likely not organic) sons with Rhaenyra — Jacaerys, Lucerys, and Joffrey — all take part within the battle. Lucerys’s demise by the hands of Aemond Targaryen is likely one of the tipping factors of the early battle, whereas Joffrey is just too younger for a lot of the battle and Jace helps lead his mom’s trigger. Laenor’s mother and father, Rhaenys and Corlys Velaryon, additionally show to be vital allies within the combat for the throne.

Will Laenor Be in “Home of the Dragon” Season 2?

“Home of the Dragon” provides a special perspective on Laenor’s final destiny. He, Qarl, and Daemon work collectively on a plot to stage Laenor’s homicide throughout a sudden brawl with Qarl, witnessed by a servant at a crucial second. In actuality, they’ve faked the entire thing, and Laenor and Qarl escape to sail east for a brand new life throughout the ocean. The TV model implies that that is what “actually” occurred, and the historians who wrote the histories in “Fireplace & Blood” merely purchased into the ruse, identical to everybody else did.

Since Laenor continues to be very a lot alive within the TV model, it is definitely doable that he might make a shock return. He leaves on good phrases with Rhaenyra and cares about her and “their” sons very a lot. It would not be unreasonable to suppose that he might return, along with his identification hid, to assist help her and their household.

The door is unquestionably open for him to return, so it is only a matter of whether or not the present’s writers resolve that his reappearance would go well with their storytelling.
