House of the Dragon Episode 5 Trailer Sets Up Another Bloody Game of Thrones Wedding

There’s another bloody wedding making its way into the world of Game of thrones. Dragon House isn’t going to have a devastating red wedding situation on their hands, but some characters are struggling to prepare as they try to celebrate an upcoming wedding. The trailer for the show’s fifth episode was released on Sunday, after episode four began, and it teases another marriage gone wrong.

At the end of the fourth episode of Dragon House, Rhaenyra learns that she will have to marry Laenor Velaryon in order to fortify both their houses. By marrying these two, the strongest houses in the kingdom will have another bond between them, and Rhaenyra’s claim to the throne will become even stronger.

The preview for episode five shows a glimpse of the festivities surrounding Rhaenyra and Laenor’s engagement, and things don’t seem to be going well for everyone involved. Tempers flare and fights break out, with some men being thrown onto tables full of food.

It is unclear what exactly triggers this conflict. We also don’t know if it happens at the wedding itself, or just one of the celebrations surrounding the wedding. What we do know, however, is that things will get violent ahead of the nuptials between Rhaenyra and Laenor.

One of the scenes in the trailer shows Ser Criston Cole fighting with another man, seemingly beating him up while he’s already on the ground. Although we don’t yet have a context for this altercation, Criston and Rhaenyra have an intimate connection. The couple slept together in the fourth episode, so Criston apparently became more than Rhaenyra’s bodyguard. This could easily become a reason for him to fight at his wedding, a wedding she has made it clear she would rather not have.

Anyway, all the violence in the trailer seems to come from a few fights between men. This is not a red wedding situation where an entire group is ambushed and slaughtered as part of a premeditated attack.
