Warning, spoilers: The following paragraphs contain potential spoilers for the third episode of House of the Dragon Season 2, The burning mill. If you haven't seen the episode yet, you shouldn't read any further!

A few days ago we reported that House of the Dragon made a clear reference to later events from its parent series Game of Thrones in its third episode. There is now new information on this from official sources.

Short recap: Since Rhaenyra's (Emma D'Arcy) youngest son was killed at the end of the first season and she herself almost fell victim to an insidious assassination attempt, the queen decides to take precautions for the survival of her house.

So she gives her cousin Rhaena Targaryen (Phoebe Campbell) a box of dragon eggs and sends them to Pentos with her youngest sons. Fans thought they recognized the eggs in the scene that Daenerys Targaryen received as a wedding present 200 years later.

Episode director Greeta Patel also had this suspicion in an interview stoked.

Objection from the producer

Now, however, showrunner Ryan Condal has spoken out with a completely different message. Opposite EntertainmentWeekly The producer said that the eggs shown not clear are the ones that Daenerys gets later.

I think the beauty of this story is that there is room for interpretation. I look [das Gelangen der Dracheneier zu Daenerys] as a possible future, but not the predetermined one.

Ryan Condal

The story of the dragon eggs is not as clear as director Patel made it seem. In addition, this would fundamentally contradict the books of GoT author George RR Martin. Because this one has its own version of the journey of the eggs.

What do the books say?

In Fire & Blood The author writes that Daenerys' eggs arrived in Essos long before the Dance of Dragons, during the reign of King Jaehaerys I. A sailor stole the eggs from Dragonstone and brought them to Braavos, where she sold them to the Sea Lord of Braavos.

Martin, however, leaves it open where Rhaenyra’s four dragon eggs will go. Their trace is lost in the darkness of history on the neighboring continent of Essos.
