Fans can remember that during the wedding scene of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Ser Laenor Velaryon, Ser Criston Cole had a controversial fit of rage and mauled the king consort’s lover. This sent everyone watching the entire gruesome fight into a frizzy, while the princess was still in the middle of the scene. Soon after, Ser Harwin Strong effortlessly walked through the sea of swarming people and found the princess, carrying her off his back and away from the maddening crowd.

Who Is Ser Harwin Strong?

For those who don’t recognize Ser Harwin Strong until the previous episode, he is part of the royal hunt that took place in Kingswood and the only person who was impressed to see Rhaenyra return to camp covered in blood and gunk. He is also a member of the City Watch who bumped into the princess during the night she snuck out with Daemon.

With his proven loyalty to the princess, combined with his manly looks and incredible strength, there is no doubt that fans would “thirst” hard for the gallant knight. Other fans also expressed their regret over Ser Criston Cole’s actions and that they are now moving on to Ser Harwin Strong.

For those who have read the novel Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin, they would know that Ser Harwin Strong will have a more significant role in Rhaenyra’s life aside from being her protector. After the horrid events at the wedding feast, the princess will seek comfort in a friend that has always been there and would not persuade her to abandon the crown and the throne to live like a commoner.

The next episode of House of the Dragon will finally reveal the 10-year time jump where fans will now meet Emma D’Arcy as Rhaenyra Targaryen and Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower.
