Behind the scenes[]

  • House of the Dragon: Season 2 was initially planned as a 10-episode arc, like the first season. Script rewrites resulting in a shorter episode count led to this episode serving as the season finale.[3]
  • When asked about his favorite day on set for Season 2, Ryan Condal responded:
"Well, I can't talk much about it, but there is a scene in... in the finale that I actually did not write, that was written by my wonderful writing partner, Sara Hess, that is, I think, one of the best scenes we've made on this show. And, uh, it's... it's between two people, and it's very long, and it's, uh... I mean, brought us to tears on set. I mean, it's just... it's brilliant."[9]

  1. In "A Son for a Son," Daemon Targaryen and Otto Hightower mention that days have passed since Viserys Targaryen and Lucerys Velaryon's deaths. Unlike the first season, no major time jumps are expected; therefore, House of the Dragon: Season 2 takes place in 132 AC.
