Since the last season of game of thrones ruined the hopes of millions of fans around the world, they have been hesitant in their approach to Dragon House. Even after the prequel’s successful debut, many were waiting to see a sign of stumbling, but with last night’s fourth episode, all those worries were put to rest. Accommodation is here to stay, and maybe even kill.

There’s a lot to unpack from the latest explosive outing, so let’s get to it without wasting any more time.

Dragon House tells the story of the Targaryens as depicted in George RR Martin’s Fire & Blood. This means the story includes many time jumps, and one of them in the current first season will see two of the actresses, Milly Alcock and Emily Carey, replaced by older counterparts in the form of Emma. D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke. While it’s unclear when this will happen, it looks like we’re approaching the narrative first half. So, could next week’s fifth episode be the last we see of these versions of Rhaenyra and Alicent? That certainly seems to be the case, going by this new preview clip, but take that with a pinch of salt for now.

Speaking of time jumps, how much time passed between episodes 3 and 4?

When we last saw Daemon, his blond hair was flowing down to his shoulders, covered in blood. In Episode 4, Daemon had his hair cut, wielding a crown that made him King of the Stepstones. As for Rhaenyra, the princess is at Storm’s End for one second, at King’s Landing for another. So, how much time passes between all these developments? The show never explicitly answers this question, but we may have found something that will help you streamline the timeline, at least as far as these final two episodes are concerned.

Fans Can’t Believe ‘Game of Thrones’ Gave Them a Tasteful Sex Scene

You can’t associate sex and Westeros without subconsciously thinking of an aggressive sack fling where the man takes advantage of a woman or, at the very least, doesn’t reciprocate the act. This assumption changed everything with Dragon House this week. Rhaenyra Targaryen’s intimate scene with Ser Criston Cole basically sounds like something out of a fairy tale. Well, maybe not exactly that, but compared to the standards previously set by the Seven Kingdoms, this intimate little scene left everyone in awe. And may it continue, regardless of what you think of realistic sex in medieval times.

Viserys and Daemon barely have room for themselves, but in the two or three scenes they have, their chemistry has been off the charts. Viserys takes care of his brother, although he knows he is as irresponsible as he is unpredictable. Daemon has big ambitions, but his love for his family still gets in the way. The relationship these two have in this time of upheaval and crisis is certainly one of the highlights of this new show, and Matt Smith, the British actor who plays Daemon, recently broke it down in all its complexity. nuanced. It’s unclear where the two brothers end up at this point, but let’s hope for a reconciliation after the events of this final episode.

And that’s all there is to note for now. Tune in tomorrow as we go over another roundup of everything interesting happening in Westeros.
