House of the Dragon Episode 6 Release Date, Time and Plot Preview


**Warning – Spoilers ahead for House of the Dragon**

In true Game of Thrones fashion, Episode 5 ended with a blood bath for one character, which manages to overshadow the entire royal wedding. Ahead of next week’s entry, we preview Episode 6 of House of the Dragon.

Episode 5 saw Viserys propose marriage between House Targaryen and Velaryon and Ser Criston also confessed his love for Rhaenyra. Alicent said a tearful goodbye to her father and her trust in the Princess soon grew cold by the end of the episode.

Created by George R. R. Martin and Ryan J. Condal for HBO, House of the Dragon will serve as a prequel to Game of Thrones starring Paddy Considine, Emma D’Arcy, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, and more, following the beginning of the end for House Targaryen including the family’s war known as the Dance of Dragons.

Episode 6 Preview – The Princess and the Queen

The biggest aspect to expect from Episode 6 is the show’s 10-year time jump, putting many years between the events of Episode 5 and next week’s entry, where Rhaenyra and Alicent actors, Milly Alcock, and Emily Carey, will be replaced with Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke.

We will also get a taste of what married life is like between Rhaenyra and Laenor, after the former’s paramour killed the latter’s, and the outcome of the Princess and Alicent’s weathered trust will also be explored.

With the King’s health deteriorating rapidly in Episode 5, it is highly possible that Viserys will take a back seat with his illness, since Paddy Considine is credited to be in all ten episodes of the series.
