After nine weeks of epic drama and extraordinary action, Season 1 of HBO's fantasy drama series 'House of the Dragon' is finally coming to an end. The show premiered its first episode on Sunday, August 21, and earned rave reviews. It also went on to break viewership records and fans were really curious to know how the network would take the story forward. As the show progressed, everyone got to know that the makers, writers and the network took a lesson from people's reaction to Season 8 of 'Game of Thrones' and tried to keep things closer to the source material. 

The season just kept on getting better with each passing episode and even though the time jumps got too annoying sometimes, the writers and makers handled the situation so amazingly well that the show never looked chaotic. That brings us to the penultimate episode of Season 1. Queen Alicent (Olivia Cooke) is mourning the death of her husband, King Viserys I (Paddy Considine). Alicent misunderstood a comment from Viserys and told everyone that he wanted Aegon to be the new king. However, others were convinced that Viserys didn't say anything like that and an argument started happening. Meanwhile, Princess Rhaenys visits King's Landing and is unhappy with the way she is being treated. Alicent finally tells her that Viserys is dead and she needs Rhaenys' support so that her son, Aegon, can be named the new king of Westeros.

The episode ends with Ser Otto Hightower telling everyone that Viserys is dead and he wanted to see Aegon sitting on the throne. Meanwhile, Aegon makes a dramatic entry and is crowned as the new king. Alicent is really happy, but this sweet moment comes to an end when a dragon flies through the kingdom. It turns out it is Princess Rhaenys who has entered the castle with her dragon. However, nothing drastic happened. Rhaenys simply has her dragon roar and then flies away.

Fans are curious to know what will happen in the final episode of the season and can't wait for it to arrive on HBO. Here's when the last episode arrives.
