House of the Dragon episode 6 brings change for the series. When does it premiere in your neck of the woods?
It’s time for what may just be the most pivotal episode of House of the Dragon yet. The HBO and HBO Max series has been dominating streaming charts, television screens and the pop culture conversation for the five weeks since its premiere episode aired, and it’s all an indicator of the fact that the Game of Thrones universe is alive and well.
This week’s episode, however, could spark even more conversations because it’s something of a turning point for the show – a turning point that fans have been waiting for, but one that many have been dreading. With another time jump at hand (the biggest the show has seen yet), it will see much of the younger cast replaced with older actors.
Unfortunately, that means breakout stars Milly Alcock and Emily Carey will no longer be playing their respective roles of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Lady/Queen Alicent Hightower, with Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke stepping into the roles. Other regular actors like Matt Smith will, of course, be remaining on in their respective roles but it’s clear that a change is on the horizon for the critically-acclaimed show.
With a lot of discussion around the recasts already, episode 6 “The Princess and the Queen” is undoubtedly going to be a major one. Before it debuts, however, you will likely want to know when you can watch it. On that note, when does it premiere in your neck of the woods?
