The first season of House of the Dragon tells a complex and dysfunctional relationship between the members of the Targaryen family. Characters grew and evolved and the dynamics between family members changed drastically as one reached the finale.

The recently released teaser for the second season of the show indicates that this conflict has become an all-out war between house Velaryon and Targaryen. Rhaenys sums up the whole narrative of the season by claiming that it will be “a war between kin”. The teaser also saw the return of Vhagar, the dragon that devoured Lucerys (which is the cause of this war)
