There’s no time jump in this episode, but it’s dramatic nonetheless. In fact, it’s my favourite so far. Here’s what went down in the second episode:

  • Rhaenyra and her uncle are revealed to be in a sexual relationship.
  • After Ser Otto tells Viserys about the relationship, Viserys removes Ser Otto as his hand.
  • Viserys tells Rhaenyra that she must now marry.
  • Rhaenyra and Alicent seem to start making amends for their broken friendship.
  • Daemon tells Viserys that he wants to marry Rhaenyra.

House of the Dragon season 1, episode 5 release date/time

The fifth episode, titled “We Light the Way”, is scheduled to premiere on HBO on Sunday, 18th September 2022, in America & Monday, 19th August 2022, in the United Kingdom. This will be the fifth of a total of ten episodes this season.

Where to watch online

You’ll be able to watch House of the Dragon exclusively on HBO, and you can get a monthly subscription for $14.99 a month. 


It’s quite hard to predict what will happen next. I would not have predicted Rhaenyra and Daemon’s relationship at all. So what could happen next? Here are just a few predictions on what could happen:

  • Rhaenyra will get married to please her father. Yet she’ll continue having a sexual relationship with her uncle.
  • The next episode will be the final episode before the big time jump.
  • Ser Otto will be livid at Viserys for turning his back on him. However strong his need for vengeance will be, will the fact that his daughter is the Queen prevent him from acting on it?
  • Whilst Rhaenyra and Alicent appear to have made up, will that soon come to an end if Alicent learns that Rhaenyra is partly to blame for her father’s downfall?
  • As always, Daemon will cause havoc in some way.

You can watch this series with a subscription to HBO Max.
