Following the shocking events that took place in Episode 5 of Dragon House, fans now find comfort (and admiration) in Ser Harwin Strong, heir to Harrenhal and the strongest man in all the Seven Kingdoms. If that doesn’t make anyone swoon, then we put the matter to rest.
Although that’s not happening anytime soon, as fans across all social networks, especially Twitter, have been posting thirsty tweets and comments about that scene where Ser Harwin Strong stalked his way through the crowd amidst the chaos and carried Rhaenyra to safety.

Move over, Ser Criston Cole – Fans are now thirsty for Ser Harwin Strong
Fans may recall that during the wedding scene of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Ser Laenor Velaryon, Ser Criston Cole had a controversial fit of rage and mutilated the king consort’s lover. This sent everyone watching the whole gruesome fight in a frizzle, with the princess still in the middle of the stage. Shortly after, Ser Harwin Strong effortlessly crossed the teeming sea of people and found the princess, carrying her on his back and away from the maddening crowd.
This act of service sent fans into a zeal of bliss, as evidenced by the tweets posted. Check out some of the reactions from viewers:

Who is Ser Harwin Strong?
For those who don’t recognize Ser Harwin Strong from before the previous episode, he is part of the Royal Hunt that took place in Kingswood and the only person who was impressed to see Rhaenyra return to camp covered in blood and grime. He is also a member of the City Watch who crossed paths with the Princess during the night she snuck off with Daemon.
With his proven loyalty to the princess, combined with his manly looks and incredible strength, there’s no doubt fans would be “thirsty” for the valiant knight. Other fans have also expressed regret for Ser Criston Cole’s actions and that they are now moving on to Ser Harwin Strong.
For those who have read the novel Fire & Blood by George RR Martin, they would know that Ser Harwin Strong will have a greater role in Rhaenyra’s life besides being her protector. After the horrific events of the wedding feast, the princess will seek solace from a friend who has always been there and would not persuade her to give up the crown and the throne to live as a commoner.
The next episode of Dragon House will finally reveal the 10-year time jump where fans will now meet Emma D’Arcy as Rhaenyra Targaryen and Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower.
