‘House of the Dragon’ Director Confirms Major Daenerys Connection in Episode 3

'House of the Dragon' Director Confirms Major Daenerys Connection in Episode 3

HBO’s House of the Dragon, a spin-off series related to Game of Thrones, was welcomed by both fans and critics, becoming yet another hit series for the streaming service. The first season aired in 2022 and consisted of 10 episodes, and the long-awaited second season finally premiered last Sunday, June 16, 2024, to great reviews.

But aside from expanding the story of its own narrative, House of the Dragon has also started to reveal some other relevant background information related to the general Game of Thrones lore, and the most recent one – from Episode 3 – confirms a major Game of Thrones character connection which fans will definitely find interesting.

Namely, Episode 3 of Season 2 of House of the Dragon shows us a group of colorful dragon eggs. Many fans noticed this moment and wondered whether these were the eggs that we’ve seen belonged to Daenerys in Game of Thrones, which gave life to Rhaegal, Drogon, and Viserion. Episode director Geeta Vasant Patel discussed this scene, and we now have the answer for you!

So, what actually happened in the episode in the first place? Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) sends her stepdaughter Rhaena (Phoebe Campbell) and her younger children to the Vale in the third episode of the series, as we have announced. She is to convey them to Lady Jeyne Arryn in the Vale first and then across the Narrow Sea to Pentos. As you may remember, Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) was in Pentos at the start of Game of Thrones when, on the eve of her marriage to Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa), Master Illyrio Mopatis (Roger Allam) gave her a pretty unique gift: three dragon eggs.

Rhaena is carrying four dragon eggs, which could all turn to stone once they are removed from Dragonstone, along with her kids and two young dragons, Tyraxes and Stormcloud. Three of these eggs—one green, one gold, and one dark reddish-black—have quite similar appearances. The light blue makes up the fourth, which is not that relevant at this point.

The three eggs we have stressed out look quite similar to Daenerys’ eggs that gave life to Rhaegal, Drogon, and Viserion in Game of Thrones. Are these the same eggs? Well, there have been numerous speculations about this, but as we’ve said, Geeta Vasant Patel, the episode’s director, reacted to these theories, and we can confirm that these are, indeed, the same Dragon eggs, which means that House of the Dragon has established a major Game of Thrones connection.

We shall see whether the eggs are just Easter eggs (pun intended) or something more, so be sure to keep following us for all the relevant updates!
