featured image

As you are probably aware by now, Dragon House a precursor. this game of Thrones spinoff based on George RR Martin Fire and Bloodtakes place nearly 200 years before the events of the original HBO series. Unlike the original series, which ran out of material for adaptation at the end of its fifth season, key details from the Targaryen dynasty have already appeared in Martin’s fictional history. If you want to know how the story ends, you can easily Google it or, you know, read a book.

But since some Bells staff has not read yet none Drawing on Martin’s novels, we’ve decided to create this weekly foreword for those of you who are happily unaware of what’s going to happen next. This is a dialogue for the treating audience. Dragon House like an old mystery box that twists and turns week after week. Without further ado, let’s move on to this week’s question:

The burning question for Chapter 10: What is a prediction you have for the future? Dragon House final?

Jonathan Bartlett: What a journey! to enter Dragon HouseI was hopeful but skeptical. can we really get another one thrones demonstrate that it meets the expectations set by its predecessor? The answer is yes. It had its challenges but overall Season 1 was exciting and I was very sad to see it end. However, we still need to go out with a bang. I’ve read the hints and looked closely at the chessboard, so my only guess for the final is … death. But who? Queen Alicent herself? No, maybe Otto? Agh, maybe Aegon, could his reign be short-lived? The truth is I can’t read the clues and have no idea, but I’m hopeful of a sudden, breathless death that sets in motion a serious abyss when we get back. hotD I need all the off-season speculations I can find for Season 2. Or maybe I’ll go and read the book.

Arjuna Ramgopal: We’re going to watch dragon fight dragon! It should. This whole season sets the stage for a major war/battle/conflict between Rhaenyra and her people and Alicent and her people. Obviously, Season 2 will be all-out war, but Dragon House it will give us a little teaser, a little taste of the future. The conflict between all the kids is bubbling a ton in the back half of the season. This season it should be a payoff. I want to see Aegon or Aemond duke it out with Jacaerys or Lucerys over their dragons. I want to see Criston and Daemon face off on the battlefield. I want to see Rhaenyra look into Alicent’s eyes as she sets all the greenery on fire. It would be crazy to have all this in one finale, but give me a dragonfight! Dragon is is for the sake of it after all. HBO and Dragon House We’ve been making fun of the impending war all season—we need to see a little bit to really get us excited for Season 2. We have to do!

Katie Baker: Someone unexpected has to stab someone else in the back, right? The question is who will break his trust and I think it will be Alicent. We saw how Larys looked at him from the other side of the party once. Now that Alicent is a little more single, it’s not hard to imagine Larys lurking in a blatant crime like Criston Cole and turning on his heel toward “no, if I can’t have him.” will make a “stand”… at a price, of course. (Great, now I’m imagining the condition of Rhaenyra’s teeth, and what I’m imagining is not good; she sounds like a woman who has nothing to do with fabric softeners.) Maybe Larys will provide the Black Team with an important piece of information. . Maybe a dragon will light a distracting fire to provide protection to an escape plan or something. Or maybe he’ll just keep crawling, enjoying some trail riding and having Alicent’s socks off every night. I’m not sure which outcome is worse.

Megan Schuster: Someone important will die.

Yeah yeah, that’s pretty general stuff, but I also think have It will happen for the sake of the first season. Let’s face it: After Rhaenys escaped burning Alicent and Co. for their betrayal last week, Laenor was granted permission to travel east (despite what the Velaryons thought), and Daemon decided not to pursue his claim to the throne at Rhaenyra’s expense. , this show was pretty open to murder (I apologize to the strong family) and real consequences. Or at least the consequences for people in power. They wander from room to room, from castle to claustrophobic castle, talking a lot of shit but not getting much action.

Now, however, things change as Aegon steals the crown, Otto Hightower openly declares war on Rhaenyra, and Viserys is no longer around for peace negotiations. Something have changing. And it must contain an important character.

That or Larys will design a raven system that will function as a Westeros wikiFeet.

Aric Jenkins: Simple: Aegon will die. And who will be responsible? Certainly none other than his one-eyed brother, Aemond. I’m a little afraid to make this prediction because the show made it very clear, but if the finale continues this season’s (mostly) good writing trend, then the teasing will pay off. somehow. Finally, Dragon House He almost yells at us to wait for this outcome: Aemond radiates pure evil even without a harsh eye patch. Trained in elite swordfighting and possessing the world’s largest dragon, he also speaks out loud that he’ll be a better king than Aegon, adding to Ser Criston Cole: “I’m next for the throne. If they come looking for me, I intend to be found.”

Meanwhile, Aegon does not display the distinctive qualities of a ruler, except that he frequently exploits the lower class. I know who to choose between these two in a fight. And since Aegon’s shortcomings were evident to all but his mother and grandfather, Aemond might even gain support if he deposed the new king. If Aemond were successful this would have resulted in a much more attractive confrontation against Rhaenyra and Daemon, I would rather spend my Sunday evenings watching next season. Here is hope Dragon House writers come.

Khal Davenport: my guess for Dragon House The Season 1 finale reflects my expectation for the entirety of Season 1: dragons and death. Considering that Season 2 is in the middle of a war, it would make sense for the Season 1 finale to include a key death or dragon-infused moment that would change the course of what happened over the previous nine episodes. I’d love to see the bubbling family war turn into a fiery field of dragon destruction. Ultimately, I would expect an important character to find its end – or maybe a few? Dragon House a game of Thrones pre-existing; All bets can be closed when it’s time for the season finale.

something i don’t do that request? Dark. If HBO (and HBO Max hosts) can promise one thing, I hope it’s that Sunday night broadcast won’t die, and I’ll be able to really make it happen. to see everything is happening.
