The House of the Dragon episode 8 trailer has been released. HBO has released a preview for next week’s episode of the Game of Thrones prequel series, which foreshadows the fight for the throne of Driftmark, following the unspecified injury of Lord Corlys Velaryon. Titled “The Lord of the Tides”, episode 8 of House of the Dragon picks up a little after the brawl at the kingdom of the sailors, which delivered false deaths and the beginnings of conflict. House of the Dragon Episode 8 airs October 10 at 6:30 a.m. IST / October 9 at 9 p.m. ET on Disney+ Hotstar and HBO Max, respectively.
The House of the Dragon Episode 8 trailer kicks off with what seems like a small time jump, returning Otto Hightower (Rhys Ifans) to power as the Hand of the King. In light of the unexplained absence of King Viserys (Paddy Considine), he now assumes the role of acting ruler. “As a Hand, I speak with the king’s voice on this and all other matters,” he told the court. Princess Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) is clearly unsettled by the power shift, calling the Hightower family “vipers” who are preparing to strike their first blow, the very next day. “To King’s Landing then,” Prince Daemon (Matt Smith) tells Rhaenyra — the pair reunited in the final episode, consummating their relationship with a kiss.
The two seem to be planning some kind of attack, with the events of Episode 7 serving as the catalyst – Aemond (Ewan Mitchell), Alicent’s middle son, lost his eye in a fight at Driftmark. This made Rhaenyra and Queen Alicent (Olivia Cooke) bitter enemies, urging the latter to take a dagger from the young culprits and seek revenge. The House of the Dragon Episode 8 trailer then focuses on the Sailor Kingdom, where Lord Corlys Velaryon (Steve Toussaint), aka the Sea Serpent, has suffered a “grievous injury”, putting him out of action. fight. His brother Vaemond (Wilbert Charles Johnson), tempted by the opportunity, decides to ask for it.
“The crown cannot stay strong if the House of the Dragon remains divided,” Viserys says in voiceover, as the threat of war looms above. The final moments of the House of the Dragon episode 8 trailer see Daemon examine a dragon egg, while Aemond orders an attack on the children of Rhaenyra, who have been branded as bastards, due to their black hair color.
New episodes of House of the Dragon air every Monday at 6:30 a.m. IST on Disney+ Hotstar in India and Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on HBO Max wherever available. Season 1 consists of 10 episodes.
