HBO has released the first-look images of ‘House of the Dragon’ season 1, episode 2. The photos include key cast members such as Rhys Ifans, Paddy Considine, Gavin Spokes, David Horovitch, Milly Alcock, Bill Paterson, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, and Matt Smith.
In ‘House of the Dragon’ season 1, episode 2 will follow the events after King Viserys wife and first son die due to the implications of labor. Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen is now next in line to sit on the iron throne. Her Uncle Daemon Targaryen was banished for doing a toast about his nephew dying. In the new images, it looks like Daemon is up to no good.
For the games to begin, King Viserys must die, and he might die from an illness. The first episode showed cuts on the king’s back that are struggling to heal because of the lack of antibiotics in this era.
While “Game of Thrones” ended poorly. Fans seem to be back and excited for “House of the Dragon” after the show drew in 9.986 million viewers across linear and HBO Max platforms in the U.S. Sunday night, the largest audience for any new original series in the history of HBO.
New episodes of “House of the Dragon” will debut each week at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max, leading up to the finale on October 23rd.
