The greens might be hiding surprising secrets and techniques of their very own. Ever because the grownup variations of Aemond and Helaena Targaryen had been launched in Home of the Dragon, followers have been questioning if Aemond might be the daddy of Helaena’s children and never Aegon. It’s completely believable and can be extremely ironic since Alicent wished to reveal Rhaenyra’s three boys as bastards.
The primary trace that this idea might be true was again when Aegon, Helaena, and Aemond had been children. Aegon was aggravated that he needed to marry Helaena as a result of that they had nothing in widespread. “She’s our sister,” Aemond stated. Aegon replied, “You marry her then.”
Aemond stated, “I’d carry out my obligation if mom had solely betrothed us… It might strengthen our household. Preserve our Valryian blood pure.” When Aegon referred to as Helaena an “fool,” Aemond rapidly responded, “She’s your future queen.”
The HBO sequence jumped forward in episode 8 to when Helaena and Aegon are already married and have twins named Jaehaerys and Jaehaera. Their marriage is a political association, not one constructed out of affection or actual affection. In the course of the household dinner, a tipsy Helaena brazenly admits that Aegon largely ignores her. Aegon is out sleeping with and assaulting different ladies, and Alicent has needed to clear up his messes.
In episode 9, Alicent and Otto go on the hunt for Aegon after Viserys’ loss of life. They work to usurp the Iron Throne and crown Aegon king over Rhaenyra, Viserys’ chosen inheritor. TikTok person tonez_tv identified why he thinks Aemond is the daddy of Helaena’s children.
“I believe Helaena Targaryen’s children are literally Aemond’s. At first, I actually wasn’t satisfied however after listening to this I believe I’m. After Alicent says ‘father,’ take heed to what the little children say. Additionally, watch Alicent as she seems on the children as they depart the room,” he says in his TikTok video.
Once you watch the scene, there aren’t any subtitles to verify if the twins say “Aemond” after Alicent says “father.” Aemond and Aegon’s names do sound related, so the twins might simply be saying Aegon’s identify. There’s not likely something a lot to make out of Alicent trying on the children as they depart. She might simply be Jaehaerys, who can be the brand new inheritor to the Iron Throne after Aegon’s topped king.
As Alicent tries to consolation her daughter within the wake of her father’s loss of life, Helaena visibly flinches when Alicent tries to the touch her. Aemond walks into the room and Helaena immediately relaxes. A HOTD fan tweeted, “Nobody can take away from me how Helaena visibly softens with reduction when Aemond walks into her chambers.”

At Aegon’s coronation, Helaena instantly turns away when Aegon is topped the brand new King of the Seven Kingdoms. When Rhaenys bursts via the Dragonpit on Meleys, Helaena reaches for Aemond. TikTok person identified, “So are we or are we not gonna talk about how she reached for him…”
Twitter fan Bea Connie additionally famous, “Okay however why is nobody speaking about the truth that Helaena couldn’t even LOOK at Aegon throughout his coronation and was crying. And when Rhaenys and Meleys appeared she leaned into Aemond.”

Now, Helaena and Aemond might simply have a better bond than Aegon and Helaena. Helaena might very simply be devoted to her husband, regardless of his personal actions. Nevertheless, if Aemond is the true father of Helaena’s children, this might make the upcoming Blood and Cheese incident much more impactful.
For those who have learn George R.R. Martin’s Hearth & Blood, you understand that Blood and Cheese is the direct response to Luke Velaryon’s loss of life. Aemond is liable for Luke’s tragic loss of life at Storm’s Finish. Daemon and the blacks vow revenge: a “son for a son.” Daemon finally ends up hiring two assassins, Blood and Cheese, to assassinate one in all Aegon’s sons.
In the course of the horrific incident, Blood and Cheese maintain Alicent, Helaena, and Helaena’s children hostage. They make Helaena select which of her sons — Jaehaeyrs or Maelor — will die. Helaena finally chooses Maelor to die, however Blood kills Jaehaerys as a substitute. For those who take a look at this even deeper, might Helaena have chosen Maelor to die as a result of she knew he was Aegon’s youngster? That’s one heck of a attain, however stranger issues have occurred within the Recreation of Thrones universe.
The Blood and Cheese incident is without doubt one of the most horrific scenes of the Dance of the Dragons. If Aemond is the daddy of Helaena’s children, this might make the Blood and Cheese horror much more private to Aemond. In spite of everything, Aemond is the one who killed Luke and never Aegon. Daemon has his spies round King’s Touchdown and would probably have the ability to discover out such a secret. Nevertheless, since Aemond just isn’t married and has no youngsters, Helaena and Aegon’s children are the obvious victims of retaliation.
Home of the Dragon might by no means even deal with this idea. Helaena’s youngsters might very properly be (and almost certainly are) Aegon’s children. However there’s one essential factor to notice: the occasions of Hearth & Blood are informed via unreliable narrators. This enables for modifications within the present and for brand new truths to be revealed (i.e. Laenor nonetheless being alive). And Aemond being the daddy of Helaena’s children can be one hell of a twist.
The Home of the Dragon finale airs on October 23 at 9 p.m. on HBO. The present will return for season 2.
