A new House of the Dragon trailer arrived and many fans claimed that Arya’s dagger appears in the video. Next, we will confirm if it is the same white weapon.
Less and less is missing for the world premiere of House of the Dragonthe prequel to game of Thrones which will be available from the next August 21 on the screen of HBO and the streaming service hbo max. In the last hours the new full trailer for the first season arrived, but with the previous advances a doubt had already arisen in the fans: Is it Arya Stark’s dagger that appears?
The next show in the franchise will be based on the novel Fire&Blood by George RR Martin, which revolves around the targaryen family 300 years before the events developed in the original show. In its cast you will see familiar faces such as Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Milly Alcock, Bethany Antonia, Phoebe Campbell, Emily Carey, Harry Collett, Ryan Corr, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jefferson Hall, David Horovitch, and Graham McTavishamong others.
+Does Arya’s dagger appear in House of the Dragon?
One of the first advances House of the Dragon revealed a scene in which Alicent Hightowerthe second wife of King Viserys I Targaryen, played by Olivia Cooke, wields a Valyrian azeal dagger exactly like Arya’s. The fandom will remember that this bladed weapon has been used on more than one occasion, such as in the death of Petyr Baelish or in the destruction of the Night King. It’s the same?
Ryan Countyco-creator and co-showrunner of the series, was interviewed by Entertainment Weekly and consulted on this question that aroused great curiosity in the fans. On this, he mentioned: “I think it’s important to have connections to show people that it’s the same world and that the story is reflected in the objects and the cast of people and the sigils as we go through time without it becoming too self-referential.”.
In his explanation, he continued: “It’s a technology that no longer exists. Its blades are no longer made. So all Valyrian steel has a fixed number in the world. Even when the Targaryens are in power, they can’t make Valyrian steel. So they’re going to take care of it.” It’s believable that something existed in the original series would have existed here, perhaps in a slightly different wrapper.”. With these words, he neither confirmed nor denied the rumors, but surely we will have answers in House of the Dragon from August 21 on HBO and HBO Max.
