The House of the Dragon, the major hit for HBO and HBO Max, has reached its halfway point with five more episodes to go. The project is taking a new direction as two of its main cast will be replaced to showcase the time that has passed since the events of its fifth episode. Outside of a promo teasing what’s to come, we will have to see what the future has in store for Visery, Daemon, Rhaenyra, and more.
With five more episodes to go, it seems that the Twitter page @HOTDsource may have gotten their hands on the runtimes for the final five episodes with the titles offering some interesting hints at where the story is heading, especially with the final episode’s title being “The Black Queen.”
The episode lengths are pretty normal for an HBO Max production, which normally moves around the full hour mark. We’ve seen a lot of shows vary in their runtime with 40 minutes to over an hour becoming the norm. Though Netflix has been very experimental with Stranger Things even having a full two-hour episode to wrap up its latest season.
As a second season is already renewed for House of the Dragon, they might be keeping an extended episode for when the time is right in a future season. With the season being among the biggest that HBO has ever seen, it’s very likely that we’ll get quite a bit more from the Game of Thrones franchise in the future.
