    Why Is The Crabfeeder Important In The Series?


    The Crabfeeder is now depicted as a strategically strong enemy for both Corlys and Daemon Targaryen. The formerly mentioned two Targaryens deduce that there is a greater chance of securing their place on the throne if they destroy the spooky antagonist of their story. The Daily Beasts’s Obsessed quotes, “The Crabfeeder is a force of monstrous annihilation, driven only by greed, cruelty and a fondness for turning his foes into crab chow.”

    They further note the scene where Craghas Drahar is introduced: “House of the Dragon’s latest hour opens with a close-up of decaying hands nailed to a broken ship beam via a giant spike, creepy crawly crabs gnawing at their flesh. A subsequent shot of a skull with small crustaceans picking at its temple and emerging from its mouth, with out-of-focus carnage spied in the background and wails of agony ringing through the air, make clear that nothing good has occurred in this watery place. When a leg being feasted on by some crabs twitches, and we subsequently see that the living are being consumed as voraciously as the dead, the depths of this nightmare becomes clearer. It culminates with an aerial panorama of the ravaged beach, littered with bodies and engulfed in smoke and the screams of the damned.”
