The quest for the Iron Throne has historically been marked by bloodshed and fiery conflicts. This was evident when Daenerys Stormborn reached for it in Game of Thrones (GoT), and similarly during the Dance of the Dragons two centuries prior. The upcoming GoT prequel, House of the Dragon (HoD) Season two, set to premiere on OSN+ in the UAE on June 17, revisits this tumultuous era. The series, inspired by George R.R. Martin’s 'Fire and Blood,' delves into the history of Westeros, chronicling the Targaryen reign through the eyes of an Archmaester. Season Two resumes with Rhaenyra’s turmoil upon learning of her son Lucerys’s death at the hands of Prince Aemond Targaryen and his dragon, Vhagar, signaling an impending war. The seeds of conflict were sown early in the first season when King Viserys I Targaryen’s decision to marry Alicent Hightower strained his relationship with his daughter Rhaenyra, leading to further discord. Despite initial mixed reviews, fans like Julian Perico are hopeful for a stronger second season, while others like Jericho Dizon appreciate the series’ intricate storytelling and character development. The anticipation for the unfolding Dance of the Dragons and the introduction of new dragons adds to the excitement, promising a narrative rich in political intrigue and dragon lore.
