We are two weeks away from the highly anticipated premiere of season 2 of House of the Dragonthe prequel series Game of Thrones the HBO.

The most recent news shared by the premium cable company confirms that the first episode of the second season, titled “A Son for a Son” will last more than an hour. To be exact, one hour and four minutes (64 minutes), according to HBO programming.


To recap, at the end of the first season, war was about to break out between Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy) and his half-brother Aegon II Targaryen (Tom Glynn-Carney) for the Iron Throne. The decision was made by Rhaenyra after Aegon II's brother, Aemond (Ewan Mitchell) murdered Lucerys Velarion (Elliot Grihault), Rhaenyra's son.

This event gives rise to the Targaryen civil war, widely known as the Dance of the Dragonsdivided by the black side (Rhaenyra) and the green side (Aegon II).

HOTD sets its plot in Westeros, 200 years prior to the events portrayed in GoT, prior to the fall of the Throne, exploring the beginning and end of House Targaryen after the unification of the Seven Kingdoms. The first season dramatized the backstory of the key characters of King Viserys's reign and the civil war that resulted, both from Lucerys's assassination, and from his disrespected succession plans.

The title of the premiere of the second season, “A Son for a Son”, It is taken directly from George RR Martin's book, Fire & Bloodreferring to a specific plot, which we will not spoil here, that leads to Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith) to plan revenge for Luke's death (blood and cheese!).

It is very likely that this plot will take place within the first or first episodes. Pay attention now.
