What day and time will 'House of the Dragon' Episode 9 premiere on HBO and HBO Max?
Season 1 of 'House of the Dragon' is slowly inching toward its conclusion and fans can't wait to see how the Targaryens shred each other to pieces for the throne. In last week's episode, we finally saw Prince Daemon (Matt Smith) and Princess Rhaenyra getting married and starting a new life. Daemon and Rhaenyra always wanted to be with each other and as soon as they got a chance, they grabbed it without thinking twice.
In the latest episode, we get to know that Lord Corlys is severely injured in a battle and his chances of surviving are really slim. So, without any guesses, names are being considered for the next ruler of Driftmark. Laenor and Rhaenyra's second son, Lucerys, is in line to be on the throne, but Corlys' brother won't accept a "foreign blood" sitting on the throne. A lot of drama takes place when Rhaenyra gets to know about this and everyone reaches King's Landing to talk about it.
When Daemon and Rhaenyra meet Viserys, they are shocked to see how his condition has worsened. The entire family sits together for a nice dinner and it feels like everything is good once again. However, things are just getting started and fans know that something devastating is just around the corner. So, when will the next episode arrive? Let's take a look.
When will 'House of the Dragon' Episode 9 premiere on HBO?
HBO has been kind enough to not take any breaks during the first season and continues to air new episodes every week. Just like the previous ones, the penultimate episode will also follow the same schedule and premiere on HBO and HBO Max on Sunday.
This means, the ninth episode of 'HOTD' Season 1 will be premiering exclusively on October 16th, at 9 pm EST.
The last two episodes will surely feature a lot of dramatic and fight sequences as House Targaryen begins a new phase. Viserys might die soon and the real 'Game of Thrones' will begin after his death. Rhaenyra and Daemon, along with their kids, have left for Dragonstone and she won't be getting to know about her father's death for a long, long time. This is how the battle for the throne begins and the civil war takes place.
With Season 2 already announced, we can expect the ongoing season to end on a massive cliffhanger or giving viewers a glimpse that war has begun. We can't wait for the next week's episode because it's going to be EPIC in every way possible.
