The war for the throne has intensified on House of the Dragon season 2. Rhaenyra Targaryen is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne, but a rash decision by Lady Alicent Hightower has resulted in the wrong Targaryen taking the crown. And the bloodshed that has resulted from that has been catastrophic, with grave losses on both sides.

This is a Game of Thrones spinoff, so it's no surprise that the conflict and war has had so many causalities, but it makes the struggle that much more intense. Can Rhaenyra figure out a way to clear her name (after she was blamed for the horrid actions orchestrated by Daemon in the previous episode) and reclaim her throne before the season's end? And what of Daemon? He's clearly dealing with his own issues and it seems that the pressure is getting to him. Yes, the second episode packed a lot in there.

If you're ready to see where the story takes us next, here's when exactly you can return to King's Landing where you are.

With this week's third installment that brings us to episode 4 next week, which is the halfway point in the season. Yes, that means that there are only eight episodes in the season. It's a decision made purely for creative purposes, which is a very good thing, but it does mean two less episodes in season 2. The good news is that it will return for a third season, as the show has already been renewed.

With a show as larger-than-life as House of the Dragon you can rest assured that it will make each of those episodes count, which it already has done so far. The question isn't what it will be willing to do to ensure that, it's what won't it do!

Westeros has never been a calm place to live, but with each episode of House of the Dragon, audiences are understanding more and more why it's always such a battleground.
