House of the Dragon director clears up *this* conversation at the end of episode 8

Warning: House of the Dragon Episode 8 spoilers ahead. Turn back now if you haven’t seen the episode!

House of the Dragon episode 8 took a tragic turn. The final scenes of the episode saw a bedridden King Viserys (Paddy Considine) finally succumb to his illness and die, but not before whispering a few final words to his wife, Alicent (Olivia Cooke). Slurring his words a bit, due to his dose of the opiate milk of the Westerosi poppy, Viserys tells her about the prophecy known as “The Song of Ice and Fire.” While it’s unclear exactly what state of mind he’s in, he seems pretty delusional and it’s possible he thinks he’s talking to his daughter Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy).
