HBO has released the House of the Dragon Episode 5 preview which marks the halfway point for the first Season.
Following the premiere episode, HBO quickly announced Season 2.
While tonight’s episode wasn’t as action-packed as the last episode, it featured a lot of political maneuverings which appear to be all by the hand of Matt Smith’s Prince Daemon Targaryen who managed to remove the King’s Hand and wed Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen to his ally, as well as possibly making himself one step closer to taking the crown.
Daemon also managed to create a big rift between the king and his daughter.
Based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood, the series House of the Dragon takes place 172 years before the events of Game of Thrones and tells the story of House Targaryen.
House of the Dragon airs weekly on Sundays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and HBO Max leading up to the big finale on October 23.
