Although we’re a good nine hours into House of the Dragon, the drama has arguably only just begun. With Viserys now out of the picture, his second wife and eldest daughter can really get into it, finally sparking the Targaryen civil war. In one corner, there’s Rhaenyra and Daemon, and in the other, Alicent and Viserys’ remaining (and memorably creepy) children. Given the scale and budget of this franchise, there’s likely going to be a lot of bloodshed and complication as the war (known as ‘The Dance of the Dragons’) unravels. The season finale is likely to capture the moments before the all-out war, as Rhaenyra and her clan decide how to respond to the coup at King’s Landing. Here’s everything to look out for in the upcoming episode, ‘The Black Queen’.
While we know the general direction of the story (Game of Thrones takes place a couple of centuries ahead of the show) and it would be entirely possible to find out what happens by reading the source material (or even glancing at a family tree), this is a spoiler-free approach.
