Who is Otto Hightower’s messenger in House Of The Dragon Ep. 4?

House of the Dragon episode 4 has quite a few outrageous moments. It contains terrible revelations that have serious consequences for members of the Targaryen family. The episode also witnessed the downfall of Otto Hightower. He was relieved of his duties as Hand of the King by Viserys himself. Another character was only seen for a few seconds. We’re talking about the messenger boy who reveals Daemon and Rhaenyra’s mating at the Silk Street brothel in Otto Hightower. So who exactly is this boy and how is he related to the white grub?

Otto Hightower’s Young Messenger

In the recent episode of House of the Dragon, we saw Daemon take Rhaenyra to the Silk Streets where they shared an intimate moment. The show finally portrayed the incest that we all knew was going to happen, but it didn’t go all the way. In fact, Daemon abandoned Rhaenyra after kissing her and especially undressing her. After leaving, Rhaenyra was recognized by a young boy who rushed to the Red Keep and reported his findings to the Hand of the King, Otto Hightower. As Otto was summoned to the front gates, the guards informed him that the messenger had brought information from the White Worm. We then see this boy approach Mysaria as she talks to an exhausted, hungover demon. He hands her some coins.

Who is the white worm referenced in the episode

Fans of the books will already know that the White Worm isn’t actually a new character. In fact, it’s just another name for Lady Mysaria herself. She was called the White Worm because her skin was pale as milk. She is the mistress of whisperers. It was to her that the young boy reported and we can assume that it was Mysaria herself who put him up to it.

As we can see, Daemon and Mysaria are no longer together. This is mostly after the events of Episode 2 where he lied about their marriage and their unborn child. Also, there seems to be some animosity between them. As we can see, during their conversation, Daemon even refers to her as an ordinary whore. This could very well mean that she orchestrated the rumor to somehow hurt Daemon and get him banished from King’s Landing once again. As for the coins, Otto Hightower most likely paid the young boy for his homework and valuable information and gave him payment for the blank worm. The boy then went to convey the same to Mysaria.

It looks like Mysaria will become a major player in House of the Dragon much sooner than expected. She is no longer a prostitute and has now taken up a new profession of espionage. In fact, she seems to have developed quite an extensive network of child spies across King’s Landing. She offers offers of spying services in exchange for money. It would also mean that King Viserys’ accusation that Otto followed Princess Rhaenyra is true. Obviously the show is picking up speed and Mysaria will be another character to watch.
