In total, Season 2 will include only eight episodes as opposed to Season 1, which consisted of 10 episodes.

What Will Happen in House of the Dragon Season 2, Episode 4?

Based on the teaser for Episode 4 that was revealed after the credits of Episode 3, fans are in for a wild ride.

According to the footage, there will be dragon action, lots of fighting, and potentially one of the biggest battles seen thus far in House of the Dragon.

Without revealing any book spoilers, fans can expect to see some high-stakes scenes including multiple main characters that will alter the course of not only the Dance of the Dragons but of Westeros as well.

After the events of Episode 3, many will wonder what is next for Daemon since he was given a prophecy from a brand new character, and how Rhaenyra and Alicent will move forward following their revelative conversation.

It is unclear whether Episode 4 will further explore these specific moments from Episode 3, but they will likely come back around at some point in the future.

House of the Dragon is available to stream on Max, and new episodes are released every Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on HBO and on Max.
