Bye, bye, crab feeder: In the first two episodes “House Of The Dragon” Cragha’s drahar aka Crabfeeder (Daniel Scott-Smith) was built up into a major threat, but in the finale of episode 3 that’s already done again – or something at least it seems so. So is the Prince-Admiral of the Triarchy really dead?
Yes, and there can really be no doubt about that. Allowing Craghas Drahar to die so early, after building him up as an almost mythical threat that has tormented the Targaryens and all of Westeros for years, is dramaturgically a questionable decision. And admittedly, we don’t see him die.
Yet You can hardly show the death of a character much more clearly than in episode 3. Something might be lost between the carnage and the dragon fire that the shrimp feeder retreats from the battlefield and Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith) rushes after him, but the following scene leaves little room for interpretation: Daemon emerges from the cave where Craghas fled and dragging his severed torso behind him.
Showrunners Ryan J. Condal and Miguel Sapochnik and director Greg Yaitanes also confirm in the behind-the-scenes video for Episode 3that this is the torso of the crab feeder.
Warning, there will be spoilers for “House Of The Dragon” episodes 1-6!
And if that’s not enough for you: We have already seen episodes 1 to 6 and can assure you that there is no miraculous return of the Prince Admiral – and also no zombie resurrection à la Gregor “Der Berg” Clegane (he was “only” poisoned and not beaten in two).
In fact, the triarchy remains a thorn in the side of the lords and rulers of Westeros. Because even though their Prince Admiral has been defeated and the Stepping Stones have been conquered, this is not the last time the triarchy has played a role in “House Of The Dragon”.
