HBO’s House of the Dragon is one of the most highly-anticipated series to arrive this month. The success of the Game of Thrones franchise is bringing yet another epic fantasy show that fans will surely love and appreciate despite the controversy surrounding the last season of the original series.
Fans are eager to see what this prequel has in store for them. Many have been expressing their expectations and theories on social media, and so we have compiled them. Aside from avoiding the past mistakes that Game of Thrones did, here are what fans would like to see in House of the Dragon:
Game Of Thrones Easter Eggs
There is no denying that Game of Thrones made a huge impact on every fan that got to witness it in its glory days. Many would like to see a connection between these two series; in fact, they are indeed linked in many ways.
A little foreshadowing here and some easter eggs there that point to a major event in the original series would be nice. House of the Dragon has all the opportunity to do this, and fans could not miss it for the world.
More Input From George R.R. Martin
Knowing that Martin was not totally involved in Game of Thrones, it is a relief that he finally joined the creative process team for House of the Dragon. His inputs are quite vital and significant in bringing the story to life.
Now, fans have higher hopes that the series will stay true to its source material, and no diversions will be made without the author’s approval. This will indeed make the story more faithful to the books.
More Dragons Featured
Game of Thrones gave fans three majestic dragons whom Daenerys Targaryen called her children. This time, fans will expect more dragons of all kinds since the story will focus on the origins of the House Targaryen and how they come from the “blood of the dragon.”
During this time, dragons will be at the height of their reign, and many have been wishing to see specific ones such as Vhagar and Meraxes, which were ridden by both sisters of Aegon The Conqueror.
More Battles And Politics
One of the many things that made Game of Thrones interesting are the politics and societal issues that center around Westeros. Everyone is vying for the Iron Throne, sons and daughters fight each other for a title, and men kill for glory.
Rhaenyra Targaryen’s ascension to the Iron Throne will cause all the chaos in King’s Landing as her reign will be challenged.
Strong Female Leads
In relation to the previous item, there will be many female characters that will rise in power in House of the Dragon. We had powerful queens such as Cersei Lannister and Daenerys in Game of Thrones and women leading an army such as Sansa Stark.
Sexism and violence will be tackled in the series, and this will show how women will rise above it along with their struggle to secure their rightful place in society.
