The drama in Westeros is at an all-time high all of the time, and that was no different in the season 2 premiere of House of the Dragon. The beloved HBO series returned last week to kick off its long-awaited second season, and it very quickly proved to be worth the wait, as the drama in House Targaryen was so unbelievable that it is once again proof that the Game of Thrones prequel series is one of the best soaps on television.

If you watched the first season of the show, you'll know that the tension between Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and her former-best-friend-turned-mother-in-law Lady Alicent Hightower continued to build throughout the ten episodes until it eventually boiled over (multiple times, in fact). That tension - and tension in general - continues to be a major factor in House of the Dragon, with season 2 producing one of the most shocking episodes yet.

If you'd like to see how the saga continues in this week's episode, here's what you need to know about when you can tune into the second installment of the season.

The second season of House of the Dragon has eight episodes, which means that it will be two episodes shorter than its predecessor. While the final season of Game of Thrones ultimately let fans down with its shortened episode count, it's unlikely that the same fate will befall its spinoff series as this was a creative choice made to benefit the story. And with a third season on the way, we know season 2 won't be the final one, which definitely allows for more creativity.

The show continues to be a global phenomenon, with fans all over the world already in awe of the twists and turns that the season 2 premiere took, so you can rest assured that they will all be tuning in for episode 2 as well to see more of Rhaenyra, Daemon, Aegon, Alicent and more.

Will you be joining them in doing so, and if so, where will you be watching the show's next episode from?
