When “Game of thrones” came to an end in 2019, the world was paralyzed before the horrendous outcome that its creators delivered. Thus, with the premiere of “House of the dragon”, a prequel to the powerful history of the Targaryen house, HBO and the writers Ryan Condal, George R.R. Martin, and Miguel Sapochnik They give us hope again in a first chapter that revives the visceral essence of the original television series.
In this note we review WITH SPOILERS the impressions that this episode entitled “The heir of the dragon” left us.
In the most faithful style of “Game of thrones”
This first chapter has all the essence of “Game of thrones”: battles, blood, viscera, power, sex, excellent dialogues and betrayals. This, without a doubt, makes any “GOT” fan feel excited and gives the feeling of having returned home.
The script is excellent and allows the different actors and actresses to shine in their characters. The story is not as complicated as in “Game of Thrones”, where practically knowing all the lineages and names of the houses was an essential requirement to understand the story.
Although there is a lot of dismemberment, the hardest scene is the moment of childbirth, in which Viserys has to choose between saving the life of his wife or his son, something that reminds us that in this universe cruelty is experienced from birth .
a new game
If “Game of Thrones” was an exhibitionist power struggle around all of Westeros, “The House of the Dragon” is a slightly more intimate fight that confronts the same family: the Targaryens, surname of the house that is in charge of everything West.
Thus, while the first seeds of a future civil war are planted, we have Visery Targaryen in the difficult decision of choosing an heir to the crown. Daemon, Rhaenys and Rhaenyra are the main candidates and each one has a past that determines at the end of this episode if they will be worthy successors.
Time to fix the bugs
The secret prophecy that Viserys tells Rhaenyra is one of the most exciting turns, since it not only links it to “Game of thrones”, but it would also be giving an indication of what we would see in the future Jon Snow series, which HBO also is already preparing.
Could it be that the creators will be able to correct the errors of the terrible ending of the original series? We will have to continue watching “House of the dragon” to find out.
“The House of the Dragon” premieres a new episode every Sunday on HBO and HBO Max.
How many chapters will “House of the Dragon” have?
“House of the Dragon” will have a total of 10 chapters during its first season. New episodes will arrive every Sunday on HBO and HBO Max.
