Just a few days before the finale, House of the Dragon’s last episode has leaked online. The news shocked many fans, who have taken to Twitter to help warn their fellow Westerosi lovers to avoid social media in order to avoid treacherous spoilers.
In last week’s episode, titled “The Green Council,” the families have finally split into two opposing sides, as blood has officially been spilled, and the war is about to begin. King Viserys Targaryen’s widow, Alicent Hightower, along with her children Aegon, Aemond, and Helaena, comprise the “greens.”
Meanwhile, Viserys’ daughter Rhaenyra, her husband/uncle Daemon, and their allies form the “blacks.” The finale’s title, “The Black Queen,” suggests a Rhaenyra-centric episode. Everything is gearing up for a thrilling finale.
Despite the hype surrounding House of the Dragon and “The Black Queen,” HBO has yet to comment on the leaks. This has been an ongoing problem for the company; in 2017, the entire seventh season of Game of Thrones found its way online months before its premiere, though this is the first time one has come this close to the episode’s premier.
