After going lacking from a couple of, Mysaria — who seems in earlier episodes as Daemon’s lover (and almost-wife) — made a blink-and-you-miss-it comeback in . Now that we have seen the , there’s little doubt that she’s the face behind the title “The White Worm.” However her position on the present going ahead stays unclear.
Here is a information to who she is, the numerous scenes she’s been in and what we discovered about her in episode 9.
Mysaria is a pleasure house worker, however that is hardly all there may be to her. In episode 2, Daemon causes a stir when he steals a dragon’s egg and pronounces in a letter that he is marrying Mysaria. He additionally says she’s “with youngster” (she is not) and that he intends to put the egg within the cradle of the newborn. Younger Rhaenyra confronts him at Dragonstone to get it again. In that episode, Mysaria turns into pissed off with Daemon. His announcement put her in danger, when he had promised to maintain her protected.
Mysaria’s cryptic remark
A turning level for her character appears to return in episode 4. Mysaria wakes Daemon up after the night time he nearly seduced younger Rhaenyra. Throughout their brief, passionless chat, Daemon calls Mysaria a whore, and he or she reveals, “I’ve left that life behind.”
“I discovered that skin-trade may solely take me thus far on this life,” she says, including no extra particulars about what she’s dedicating herself to now.
However there does appear to be one other clue. Within the scene proper earlier than this one, a child brings Otto Hightower “phrase from the White Worm.” The child seems to be the supply that knowledgeable Otto about Rhaenyra and Daemon’s pleasure home go to. In the course of the scene with Daemon, Mysaria collects cash from a child that appears lots just like the one who dished to Hightower — cash that appears to be cost from Otto for Mysaria’s secret-sharing.
That is the final we see of her… till episode 8.
What occurs in episode 8?
Mysaria seems on display screen briefly close to the tip of red-haired lady-in-waiting., after the comparatively peaceable banquet with Viserys, Rhaenyra and Alicent. She’s looking of a constructing as a cloaked determine under hurries towards her. We quickly see the hooded determine is Talya, Queen Alicent’s
“It has been fairly an evening on the citadel, it appears,” she tells Talya, who replies, “Sure, my girl.”
Talya appeared earlier within the episode, bringing Alicent the particular tea for Dyana, the traumatized serving woman who was sexually assaulted by her son, Aegon.
What about episode 9?
In, Mysaria meets face-to-face with Otto, who’s keen to trace down the lacking Prince Aegon. He asks if she’s the White Worm, and he or she feedback on the very current loss of life of the King. Otto is visibly startled — that is not one thing anybody’s alleged to know but. Mysaria needs one thing in return for handing over the prince — the tip of youngsters being “compelled to combat, and worse” in Flea Backside.
He provides her his phrase in alternate for the prince’s whereabouts. She tells him to recollect, “There isn’t a energy however what the folks can help you take.”
The White Worm, whereas not talked about by title, is the topic of a dialog between Alicent and Larys afterward within the episode. Sure, I am speaking about. Larys reveals how Otto discovered Aegon: “There’s a internet of spies at work within the Crimson Maintain.” It consists of servants like Talya and it is helped these, like Otto, keen to “feed the weaver,” he says. The queen provides Larys the OK to “take it out on the head.”
Following this, we see Mysaria’s constructing from episode Eight on fireplace, and a hooded individual strolling away from the scene.
What’s Mysaria’s deal?
So here is what we now know at this level. Mysaria goes by the title the White Worm. She’s the same determine to Varys in Sport of Thrones, aka the grasp of whispers in King’s Touchdown. On the very least, Talya and several other youngsters are retaining her knowledgeable on issues taking place within the Crimson Maintain and past.
She additionally appears to be a reasonably ethical individual. She pays the younger woman who units up the assembly between her and Otto. Her request to Otto was fairly selfless.
It is unclear how — and if — she’ll take a facet within the effervescent battle between Alicent and Rhaenyra. She’s exchanged info with Otto for cost, however she’s not allies with him. We’ve not seen her and Daemon work together in an extended, very long time, so it is unclear what their relationship is like proper now. A part of me wonders if she’ll even select a facet to assist… or if she’ll simply proceed supporting “the folks.” Possibly Sunday’s season finale will deliver some readability.
