After a pretty good premiere that made the world realize they’ll always be the hotties for more Westeros, the second episode doubles down on everything people liked about the original show. That means more Small Council meetings and political intrigue, showing the cost of playing the game of thrones and how it often means literally marrying kids. for political interests.
Then there’s the highlight of the episode: the birth of a Craghas Drahar, also known by the much more accurate and better name, Craghas Crabfeeder. We first hear about Crabfeeder during the “House of the Dragon” premiere, where Corlys Velaryon (Steve Toussaint) talks about a pirate from the Triarchy (Free Cities of Myr, Lys, and Tyrosh) attacking Step. Though the other lords don’t heed Corlys’ warnings, we’ll see the seriousness of his concerns in the second episode.
Now, a title like Crabfeeder can mean many things. After all, we’ve heard a lot of cool nicknames in “Game of Thrones” over the years, but none of them are quite as literal. Sandor Clegane may be called a Hound, but he is not a literal dog. Davos Seaworth’s name is Onion Knight, but he’s not made of onions and he’s not an elf (because they have layers, got it?), and Aemon Targaryen in “Dragonknight” isn’t an actual dragon in armor. So why does Crabfeeder have to be literal? However, we are all better off for it.
