House Of The Dragon Episode 3 Trailer Breakdown

The trailer itself teased the name of Aegon Targaryen, to be the heir to the Iron Throne. Hand of the King, Otto Hightower is somehow planning something big, and the trailer has an expression of his selfish thoughts in mind.

House Of The Dragon Episode 3 Trailer Breakdown

Queen Alicent Hightower

The House of the Dragon Episode 3 trailer opened with Rhaenyra walking away from King Viserys. And there was a voiceover from Otto Hightower that said, “The road ahead is uncertain, but the end is clear. Aegon will be king. He was telling this to his daughter, Alicent Hightower, who seemed no longer a friend of Rhaenyra, but wanted the throne for her son.

And that’s how the story will slowly pick up the pace and destroy all the emotions and smiles that people exchange in Westeros.

Cut to the next scene, Otto Hightower says that Aegon is the firstborn son of King Viserys, and then we see the king playing with baby Aegon. King Viserys tells Rhaenyra that sooner or later she will be with her own children.

Cut to Rhaenyra screaming, “I don’t want to get married!” “. And for the first time we saw Viserys shout harshly at Rhaenyra, and said, “Even I do not exist above tradition and duty, Rhaenyra.”. The conflict for the throne may have already started in this time frame, which led to such furious disputes.

In the next scene, Alicent Hightower is seen speaking with pride and arrogance. She says, “None of this needs to be so, in truth.”

She probably says this to Rhaenyra, because in the next scene we see her walking away with a voiceover from her, “No one is there for me!”

We then see Rhaenyra riding away on horseback to possibly get away from all that hassle. In the immediate next scene, we saw her get off the horse and were scared of something unclear in the trailer.

Scene cuts to the crab feeders! Daemon was convinced by Lord Corlys to fight off the Crab Eaters and save his fleets. Corlys says:The question of running boards is unfortunately urgent. We then see Viserys with a spear, killing a creature or a human.

With a likely guess, this is the scene where King might go into the forest to find Rhaenyra. And whatever she was scared of earlier in the trailer, Viserys killed it with the spear.

Let’s go back to the war scene where the Daemon army is probably fighting with the crab feeders. Corlys says, “We are losing!”. And then, we feasted our eyes hearing the flapping of the dragon’s wings and its roar. We then see the dragon burning everything to transform defeat into victory.

The House of the Dragon logo flashes and the trailer ends with a dragon roar!

What does the trailer say about the show’s positioning for Episode 3?

Rhaenyra Targaryen

After watching the trailer, it looks like House of the Dragon Episode 3 will be a time jump. We saw older Viserys, Alicent Hightower as an adult avatar, and Aegon as well.

The writers probably want to skip a few parts to make sure the creators have enough time to show the real stuff that adds more interest to the storyline. This will be a good jump because too much character building without setting up the main plot will kill the series.

Writers and creators cannot afford this to happen. With many important lessons learned from the final season of Game of Thrones, the creators are aware of how disastrous the series can be, if they rush things without proper strategy and placement.
