‘Game of Thrones’ fans are loving the premiere of its ‘House of the Dragon’ spin-off

It was the night Game of Thrones fans had been waiting for on Sunday – the premiere of the highly anticipated spin-off House of the Dragon. The prequel, based on George RR Martin’s ‘Fire & Blood’, is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones and chronicles the beginning of the end for House Targaryen, including the events leading up to the War of Succession. Targaryen known as “Dance of the Dragons.” After the opening scene, a prologue explained that the events of this series take place “172 years before the death of the Mad King, Aerys, and the birth of his daughter, Princess Daenerys Targaryen”, the words ending in fade out to read only “172 years before Daenerys Targaryen.” Fans absolutely loved the subtle homage paid to the beloved character from the original series, like this person who tweeted: “The fact that the opening scene indicates that the events of the series are BEFORE Daenerys and not AFTER Aegon , that’s it. Daenerys is a legend!” As for the rest of the series premiere, House of the Dragon delivered all the violence GoT was notorious for and even killed off a lovable character two-thirds into the first episode. Again, typical GoT. However , some viewers didn’t like a few plot points like the fact that King Viserys Targaryen chose to let his wife, Queen Aemma Targaryen, die in labor in order to save her male heir as they thought it struck a chord. little too close to home when it comes to real politics. In another scene, Otto Hightower, the King’s Hand, sends his 14-year-old daughter Alicent to the chambers of King Viserys to comfort him by having sex with him. And while that the series is set in 112 AC, and is also, well, a fictional TV show, some just thought the idea was a bit too unacceptable But overall most people, and even those who are still bitter about the he Game of Thrones series finale, are happy to be back in Westeros.
