Everything That Happened

House of the Dragon | Official Teaser Trailer | HBO Max/Video courtesy of HBO Max


SPOILER ALERT: This story contains details from the premiere of HBO’s House of the Dragon.

It’s a prequel to Game of Thrones, but it could also double as a medieval spinoff of Succession.

The phrase much-anticipated is a well-worn phrase in Hollywood, but there really isn’t any other way to describe the latest dispatch from Westeros, based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood. The 700-page saga chronicles the history of House Targaryen — or as the TV series goes on to explain, 172 years before the death of the Mad King and the birth of Daenerys Targaryen (played in GOT by Emilia Clarke). The episode begins with the question of succession, who is most deserving of the title, and how no woman will ever sit on the Iron Throne.
