It’s finally here! The long-awaited teaser of the House Of The Dragon (next chapter of Game Of Thrones ), is out on YouTube.
More like a spin-off, The series deals with events that followed before the nine noble families fought for every inch of control and every drop of power. The trailer doesn’t reveal much about what to expect from the show. The plot, however, is set around the House Targaryen during a civil war set 200 years before Game Of Thrones premieres.
Full of new Gods, kings, fire, and blood, take a look at our shot to shot breakdown of the teaser:
1. The first visuals are of Daemon Targaryen who’s played by Matt Smith. We see him walking down some kind of dark tunnel/cavern. Daemon is King Viserys’s brother.
2. We see what appears to be Daemon standing on the Dragonstone beach with his niece Rhaenyra, Viserys’ daughter by his first wife and the current heir to the throne.
3. There’s a short visual of what appears to be a spooky dragon skull or statue lit up by a bunch of candles.
4. We also get a close-up shot of the ‘Hand of the King’s pin’ that Otto Hightower owns. He’s the father of Alicent, the second wife of King Viserys I.
5. The teaser is later followed by visuals of King Viserys himself, resting on the Iron Throne and clutching a sword.
6. We then see the younger version of Rhaenyra played by Milly Alcock.
7. We then get visuals of the current/older versions of Emma D’Arcy’s Rhaenyra standing next to Daemon on that beach.
8. There’s even a fight going on at a tourney that involves at least one of the Targaryens.
9. The teaser also has Corlys Velaryon played by Steve Toussaint who is better known as the Sea Snake.
According to the records, The Valryons are an ancient Valyrian house similar to the Targaryens and are considered richer than the Lannisters.
10. The teaser is followed with Velaryons entering the throne room, including Corlys and his wife Rhaenys who happens to be a cousin of Viserys. They’re joined with their son Laenor and their daughter Laena.
11. The woman shown is Mysaria played Sonoya Mizuno, a dancer from Lys who later becomes a friend of Daemon.
12. We then get a glimpse of Alicent Hightower played by Olivia Cooke with a dagger in her hand that looks quite familiar.
13. We also get short visuals of a tourney at what seems to be Horn Hill, the seat of House Tarly.
14. There’s a glimpse of two people fighting out of which one looks like Laenor Velaryon.
15. The final shot of the teaser is of a woman who is possibly Rhaenyra, She’s walking towards the Iron Throne which appears slightly different from the throne that we know from Game of Thrones. It is more accurate to the description that we have in the books.
