In this episode of A Cast of Kings, David Chen and Kim Renfro dive into House of the Dragon’s season 1 finale, “The Black Queen.” Rhaenyra learns of what went down at King’s Landing next week, prompting her and Daemon to take immediate action. But can Rhaenyra prevent tragedy from befalling the kingdom, as well as her family? 

Where is this show going with all the references to the ASOIAF prophecy? What’s up with the depiction of Daemon this episode? What are the major differences between the show and the books when it comes to this episode’s events? How will the Dance of the Dragons play out? Now that season 1 is over, will David stop complaining about the time jumps? Listen to hear our thoughts!

Programming note: Kim and I will record at least one additional bonus episode next week, and we plan to do other bonus episodes throughout the year as Game of Thrones/House of the Dragon news breaks. Keep it tuned in to A Cast of Kings for more!
