It has already been assured that the second season of The House of the Dragon will avoid one of the biggest problems of the first: the confusing time jumps.
They were narratively necessary to illustrate the twists and turns of various schemes and family dynamics. But they were also alienating for audiences, often making it difficult to keep up with both the constant reworking of characters, how exactly they interact with one another after the span of a few years, and how their motivations and personalities may have changed.
That said, House of the Dragon’s time jumps and reworks, while confusing, still haven’t derailed the Game of Thrones spin-off as much – as evidenced by its Golden Globe win for best television drama, alongside Emma D’Arcy as well. winning best television actress for her role as Rhaenyra Targaryen after the time jump.
In many ways, the confusion caused by the time jumps was a necessary sacrifice to do justice to the book on which the series is based, George RR Martin’s Fire and Blood, a quasi-historical novel that details over a hundred years of House Targaryen’s reign. .
Still, many will no doubt be relieved to learn that House of the Dragon season 2 has a much more linear timeline planned.
