The deaths of major characters and Matin’s Books are inextricably linked. Anyone who has seen the previous big-budget drama, Game Of Thrones, knows that no character is safe in the show. When it comes to this sort of thing, House of Dragon is no exception. While critics were concerned about this prequel following the final season of Game of Thrones, it appears to be going well for the series. This also means that fans have been anticipating season 2 with bated breath.
Season 2 may bring a lot of death, including the deaths of two major characters from the show. Not only that, but these scenes hint at what events from the book will be featured in the series’ second season. However, George R.R. Martin has previously stated that the show will not adhere as closely to the source material as possible, so there may be some changes that book readers are not expecting.
It was an imaginary history book that has a few scenes where I zero in, and I give you a half page of a scene. But, mostly, it’s history. It’s an outline, and you can’t present an outline on television, so it has to be filled in.Martin
Season 2 may include key scenes from the novel Fire & Blood.
The first death was revealed to audiences through behind-the-scenes footage, and it was a funeral at King’s Landing that revealed the faces of Queen Alicent and Helaena following Prince Daemon’s revenge plan. This is the infamous ‘Blood and Cheese’ scene, in which two assassins are hired to kill one of Halaena and Aegon’s three children. “An eye for an eye, a son for a son,” he says.
The second death could be the fan-favorite dragon as shown in a scene where the head of a dragon is paraded through the streets. Of course, we’re referring to “Battle at Rook’s Rest,” in which Princess Rhaenys and her dragon Meleys face off against her brothers Aegon II and Aemond in an aerial battle with their dragons Sunfyre and Vhagar. However, it is unknown whether they will include Rhaenys’ death after the battle that was included in the books.
Overall, these questions will be answered in due time, and fans won’t have to wait long because the writer’s strike has surprisingly had no effect on the production of Hosue of Dragon.
Every episode has gone through four or five drafts and numerous rounds of revisions, to address HBO notes, my notes, budget concerns, etc. There will be no further revisions. The writers have done their jobs; the rest is in the hands of the directors, cast and crew.Martin
Season 2 of House of the Dragon is set to premiere in 2024.
