‘House of the Dragon’ Previews Episode 3; Releases Season Intro

HBO has released the House of the Dragon Episode 3 preview offering a look at the next episode and revealed the new Season intro.

Tonight’s second episode was another good one which happened to feature the show’s new opening intro featuring a familiar song.

The intro features the same music that opened all eight seasons of the main Game of Thrones series but with new animation to reflect House of the Dragon.

The intro shows blood flowing through the streets of some sort of maze where the blood seems to be going to and/or unlocking house to house or crown to crown where all the blood leads to and ends up at the House of Targaryen. It’s probably safe to say we are in for a blood-soaked first season.

Watch the Episode 3 preview and the intro below.
