House Of The Dragon Release Schedule: When Does Episode 5 Release?

House Of The Dragon Release Schedule: When Does Episode 5 Release? Warning! SPOILERS for House of the Dragon season 1, episode 4 ahead. Here’s the House of the Dragon release date and time for every season 1 episode. The much-anticipated prequel show follows in Game of Thrones’ footsteps in its approach to episode structure. House of the Dragon is the first official Game of Thrones spinoff, serving as a prequel series beginning 179 years before the original show’s timeline. There isn’t a significant focus on House Stark or any of the original characters, but a surprise twist includes the threat of the White Walkers in House of the Dragon’s story. However, the most exciting part of House of the Dragon season 1 is that it depicts the height of House Targaryen’s dynasty and dragon power in Westeros.

House of the Dragon season 1, episode 4 Summary

House of the Dragon season 1, episode 4 begins after a one-year time jump, revealing Daemon was named King of the Narrow Sea and Rhaenyra failed to choose a husband. Upon his return, Daemon takes Rhaenyra to a pleasure house, where he seduces her, and the two are caught. While Daemon and Rhaenyra didn’t actually sleep together, she loses her virginity that night to Ser Criston Cole. Word of her tryst with Daemon quickly reaches Otto Hightower, who informs King Viserys before the scandal brews. Viserys first confronts Daemon, who is exiled after suggesting he marry Rhaenyra. In House of the Dragon episode 4’s ending, Viserys orders Rhaenyra to marry Laenor Velaryon before agreeing to fire Otto as Hand of the King, whose goal was to ruin Rhaenyra and make Aegon the heir instead.

Starring Milly Alcock, Emily Carey, Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, and Rhys Ifans, House of the Dragon season 1 is quickly approaching its major time jump before the climactic Dance of the Dragons.
