    He’s so attracted to war. Destruction. He’s the embodiment of a pure Targaryen.

    Love the interaction with Christin Cole, where Cole reminds Daemon of being unhorsed by him. Daemon just takes it in stride with a laugh. He can take it and also dish it out.

      @Jimmy Wiggle your right, the person blowing the Horn dies instantly, so any Dragon hearing it would only obey the person holding it as of that moment, but ALL dragons, including those with riders, can fall victim to the Horn and its master. The ancient Horn that Victarion has in his possession once belonged to a Dragon in Valyria MUCH bigger than Balerion.

    Daemon is the definition of chaotic neutral. Cunning and brave but also impulsive and narcissistic. They did a really good job making a character so unpredictable yet believable.

      @Far-Moderate Extremist murder is not a neutral act. Even if it benefits you, especially if it benefits you, it's widely considered evil. And yes, he does take sadistic glee in his murder, as evidenced by the first kill he makes in executing the criminal... And others arguably
      Neutral indicates an aversion for evil and good acts. He's neutral to chaotic EVIL

      @Gold & Silver VS Crisis & Collapse stop conflating your morality with what chaotic neutral actual means in the context in which it was created. Daemon acts out of selfish desire, not out of a love of cruelty, sadistic glee, or a desire to dominate and remove the freedoms of others. Daemon is a neutral character that occasionally does evil things because they're a means to an end, not because he sees evil as an end unto itself.

And ironically the people who look up to him, you'd be nailed to feed crabs, lose part your heads and strangled and bashed by him given the slightest inconvenience to him. Just because he's charismatic and likes his bro doesn't make him a good person, role model or husband 🤣

      Seriously should have been. He was a warrior and took charge. How are we supposed to follow Rhaenyra’s arc through the Dance, since she hasn’t the slightest idea as to how to wage a war or command troops (the scene at Dragonstone, Daemon was the one who took charge and made defense strategies that Rhaenyra wouldn’t have even thought of) stuff just sort of happens to her and she had a dragon.. that’s about it.

      @ollie Well, that's wrong, because according to logic, you want to think about it, if Damon has three dragons and everything you say he has, he's still going to have to deal with three dragons against Vigar and Sunfire and thousands of anti-dragon bows and arrows, in your opinion, Damon's dragon can dodge a few arrows.

    I think my personal favorite scene of Daemon's is definitely when he starts laughing to take the attention away from the Velaryon throwing shade at Rhaenyra AT A FUNERAL. Close second is the scene where he helps a dying Viserys onto the Iron Throne, even though he's a terrible person it still shows that he loves his brother Viserys very much

    • bracoop2
      bracoop2 2 months ago +1

      I don’t think he’s a terrible person. I think he was handed so many losing hands. Second son to viserys , his wife hated him, he defeated the treyarchy almost single-handedly with improvisational transcendence as he doesn’t have one word of dialogue during the stepstone battle where he kills the crab feeding asshole.

    • Jacob Sinton
      Jacob Sinton 2 months ago +1

      Oooh that's why he laughed... I only just now got that. Vaemond was all talking about his family's Velaryon blood, saying, "ours runs thick, ours runs true... and ours will never thin," or something to that effect. I guess that's a veiled reference to the bastardy of Rhaenyra's and Harwin's children and perhaps even a challenge to her... he's essentially saying that the only person that will possibly inherit the lordship of Driftmark is one whose pure Valyrian blood remains unbesmirched. Which plays to his favor eventually, after his nephew Laenor's faked demise and his brother Corlys's own brush with death. But I guess he could not have really anticipated either of those events happening.

    • Lloyd Christmas
      Lloyd Christmas 2 months ago +7

      That scene where he helps Viserys to the throne wasn't suppose to happen. Viserys accidentally dropped the crown, and what we saw was improv. The showrunners thought it was so good, they left it in the show.

      For me it was when he said "I will speak of my brother as I wish, you will not". Shows that although they got their problems and he doesn't just blindly accept everything he says and does, he's still his brother and has his back, he won't let someone else badmouth him like that.

    Daemons biggest enemy is boredom. He would rather fight the Nigh King and Viseryon freezing far above the Wall, than having cozy, predictable, safe, rich life. I think his unpredictable nature is his way of making his life more fun. He knows he's a gray character and he likes it. Being just mainly good or bad would bore him. From House of Dragon era, Daemon is "the most Targaryen" of all Targaryens. (Aemond being close but still a bit behind in my opinion). He just loves dragons, drama, competitions and adventures.

    • White Rose
      White Rose Month ago +1

      This. He's a complex character but he is never dull. The most Targaryen of all Targaryens, especially the idgaf attitude. Bet he finds being king rather boring than appealing at best, he longs for adventure and the thrill of it.

    • Khal Stroso
      Khal Stroso 2 months ago +2

      @Ariane B Not to me, but people somehow love him. I think hes young Daemon. Hes 20, Daemon is actually +-43 in the show+books in Dance of Dragons, so hes mainly behind cause of 22year gap. But for sure, to me personally Daemon is 8,5/10 while Aemond 6/10.

    • Ariane B
      Ariane B 2 months ago +5

      Aemond is nowhere close nor even a bit behind lol. What has he done tbh? Aside from being vengeful for his eye? Like cmon now. He would have been in the same breathing level of Daemon if he purposefully killed Luke, and Vhagar listened to him. That would make him a more respected dragonrider. Daemon can spiritually connect to 2 dragons, and does not need to command Caraxes. Daemon contributed Goldcloaks and Stepstones legacies to the realm. People are overrating Aemond so hard, he's nowhere even a bit behind Daemon. He's just a one-eyed boy who claimed he was well read, but can't control a dragon and doesn't have any contributions to the realm.

    Although we've only had one season, he ranks at the very top of my favorite characters in either of the shows. Layers of complexity. And although everyone's main objective is to sit the Iron Throne, his motives aren't always clear. A true mixture of the ying and the yang.

  • Silspd90
    Silspd90 2 months ago +43

    This is by far the best written character of the shows. His motives still aren't clear. It felt like he wanted the iron throne but he never once questioned his brother's rule. Ofcourse he would disobey his command but the fact that he's helping Rhaenyra get the iron throne makes up for it. I would hate it of in coming seasons it turns out he's helping Rhaenyra only to get the iron throne, I'm gonna lose it.

    Daemon was never a true threat to his brother. He loved his brother deeply and only wishes to protect him… he saw Otto for what he was. And look.. also I’d I recall.. we never SAW daemon make that mocking toast only hearing Otto report that he did. At this point I’d wager he exaggerated if not lied. When daemon sees Viserys old and sick.. DYING he has a hard time. He STUTTERS and can’t look at him. His brother reduced to this and had suspected the greens poisoning him. Which I agree on. Daemon was a scape goat the black sheep… when we should have been focusing on the Green…

    Daemon was a true Dragon and should have been king, with Rhaenyra as his queen.. some shit probably would have still gone down but the Targaryens would have never lost their Dragons and thus probably wouldn't have lost Robert's rebellion years later.

      @Bruce Wayne We all know that. But when you have a literal dragonriding gene and all the other dragonrider families are dead... it's kind of a necessity. There are Valyrians left, but none of them carry the gene. Only the Velarions, because of Rhaenys. But even the old Valyrian Dragonrider families practised it. They didn't even want to mix with other dragonriders. It must be tied to blood magic secrets. Or it was just the ultimate step for a bunch of eugenics obsessed aristocrats with nukes idk

    I think when Daemon was talking to his wife, he wasn't going to hurt her. She fell with the horse and he steps on her arm to see if she would cry out, but she doesn't, she just looks away. I think he may have been giving her mercy in his way because she would only linger and die if paralyzed. She seems like a woman he could love in some weird way. Just a thought.

    • Depressoexpresso7

      No, he meant to kill her. He made sure the horse smelt Caraxes on him, she baited him with jokes about how he was impotent because she knew she was paralyzed from the neck down. Daemon fully intended on killing her because his brother wouldn't allow him a divorce and he couldn't have multiple wives as his brother forbade it.

    20:30 "Dreams didn't make us kings. Dragons did."
    That is an incredibly important line.
    So many Targaryens became victim of their own dreams.
    Remember Aemon Targaryen? Who famously told Aegon VI "Jon Snow" Targaryen to "kill the boy". He said the following to Sam:
    I see them in my dreams, Sam. I see a red star bleeding in the sky. I still remember red. I see their shadows on the snow, hear the crack of leathern wings, feel their hot breath.
    *_*My brothers dreamed of dragons too, and their dreams killed them, every one.*_*
    Egg, the good king.. most likely committed a terrible crime at summerhall trying to hatch dragons killing almost his entire family. (possibly Rhaegar was supposed to be sacrificed but lived/survived thanks to Duncan and his foot).
    And it is the same here.. Aegons dream.. keeping secrets (stupidly) kills people.
    The last people to ever know about this prophecy were Ned Starks father and brother who got killed by Aerys.
    Because they kept it secret everything backfired so incredibly terribly.. Dreams and Prophecies are dangerous.. dont assume to konw or predict the future.

    Daemon tamed Vermithor. Vermithor has over a 200 foot wingspan and very experienced in killing and has seen an entire history of wars. Vermithor is almost as big as Vhagar. Daemon just hit the lottery and the fact he also holds Caraxes "The BloodWorm", another serious lethal killer as well makes him as defiant as he wants to be. In my opinion Drogon vs Caraxes would be the dream match to see in a dragon fantasy fight. Drogon has a 190 foot wingspan at only 8 years old while most dragons that age are 100-120. He is also the exact replica of Balerion in form and muscle tone and skull, a True Alpha Male Dragon. Caraxes is deformed but it made him over 200 feet long as well as a 190 foot wingspan. His deformity makes him extremly agile like a cobra snake and he fights as ferocious as any Dragon. Caraxes super long neck makes his fire breath shoot like a long range flame thrower with tons of force which gives him the advantage in a fire contest, Drogon is physically stronger but not by a lot. It would be a good one for sure.

      @Lee there was never any indication in the show as to there being blood magic on them. The only situation it was used around that time was to try save Drogo and it killed her baby, but never said anything about the eggs at all. It's honestly just headcanon explanations for it same as my random theory that it'd be cool if Balerion turned out to father those eggs since we have no idea when they were layed and one of them even kinda looks like him.

      @TraydersAnonymous In the book Daemon keeps Caraxes, and Caraxes rips Vhagars throat out while Vhagar bites Caraxes wing off.. they basically kill each other in mid air then Daemon jumps from his dragon onto Vhagar and stabs Aemond in his bad eye and kills him then they all fall to the sea from the sky. Daemon was never seen again after that.

      @Cole Campbell A ton of the dragons are descendants of Balerion, would not be surprised if Drogon is his son. Drogon had a 196 foot wing span at just 8 years old with a very muscular neck for his age...any dragon his age is smaller than him so Drogon is most definitely the future of Alpha Male Dragons.

    The scene where Deamon chokes Rhaenyra is one of his most impactful scenes. Showing his true self of a man who cannot stand shit he thinks is bullshit. He would've been a harsh King, but not necessarly a bad one.

    • Rahim Rahimi

      You're sure it's not a bad king to order and hir two murderers to take a multiyear child to get revenge, to be honest, Damon doesn't care less about Reneira's children and Renira himself, but on the pretext of murdering Reinira's son, he wanted to start the war, and unfortunately he succeeded, making almost the dragon generation extinct.

    I love that at this point of the Song of Ice and fire saga, the Targaryens are still very much dragonlords and they are masters of the art. Here we see Daemon waking the dragon, only true Valyrian dragonlords can do such a thing. By the time Daenerys' time came around, most of the art was lost.

    Their faces when when the blood wyrm made its entrance is the face you make when you realize that sometimes 20 good men just ain't enough and this is one of those times.
    Edit: it's also the face you make when you forget your enemy has a dragon and are reminded in the worst way possible.

      @Ariane B Are you awetistic bro when did I say he should be a Disney prince all I said was he never shows affection to his velaryon family which Is a fact so cry more you idiot. It has nothing to do with the type of character daemon is they purposefully show him being disinterested in them it's just weird

    • Ariane B
      Ariane B 2 months ago

      @Cairne Thunderhoof Bro? The fck you expect Daemon for?? To be a Disney Prince?? Gosh you're overreacting this sht. The fact that he stayed with them for 10 years is already something big for an unhinged character like Daemon. Laena is even disappointed that he always just reads in the library, when she knows he's more than that. Laena herself said she made peace that she might not be the first choice of a wife. Don't expect Daemon to be a fckn Disney Prince. He can even hurt Rhaenyra, he pissed off his brother. Demanding Daemon to be a perfect Disney Prince and be so lovey dovey is not fckn it. Get your sht together.

    • Cairne Thunderhoof

      @Ariane B Rewatched it and he literally turns his back on his kids after their mother dies basically never spends time with them, argues with their mother while they're in foreign lands she doesn't want to be in and then kills her brother and then her uncle AND bangs rhaenyra right after she dies basically. So yeah he pretty much 99% - 1% showed he cares about the velaryons.

    Daemon is ruthless and honorable. After all is trials and tribulations with the King his brother he loved him dearly. Daemon was meant to be the sword of the King. I am glad Daemon was able to make amends with his brother before he died. Losing his wife in such a manner hurt Daemon a great deal.

    So far this show has been so much better than GoT. I can't wait to see what they do with Dunc and Egg, Blackfyre rebellion, Aemon the dragonknight. So much possibilities. It's like a Marvel series with the rich lore of the Ice and Fire saga. The Blackfyre rebellion is so interesting because the "bastard" is a true Targaryen; a warrior, scholar, and leader of men. Even his father, the King, gave him BLACKFYRE, The Targaryen Valyrian Sword.

    The using of the dragon class to cut the lip may be foreshadowing of dameon becoming the night king. I thought it was a dumb theory. The more I think, it could have happened based on his disrespect of argon’s dream. Choking Rhenyra at the mention of it was perhaps a sign of deep trouble for him in the future as the night king. One who can ride a dragon and is immune to fire.
