Numerous folks are keen to know when they may view Episode 9 of House of the Dragon. Fans are anticipating this episode with great anticipation after viewing every episode thus far.
Our desire to cater to the show’s legion of devoted followers led us to create this dedicated article. The release date for Episode 9 of House of the Dragon will be announced here.
In addition, we will discuss many other aspects of the show, such as where you can see it and when, as well as the show’s cast and a list of episodes.
When will we see the next episode of House of Dragon?
Episode 9 of House of the Dragon, titled “The Green Council,” will premiere on Sunday, October 16 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT/MT/CT. It will premiere on HBO and then be made available on HBO Max at the same time.
Episode 9 can be seen on Sky Atlantic in the UK on Sunday night/Monday morning, October 17, at 2:00 a.m. BST.
Depending on when Episode 8 takes place, the royal children may appear very different. The heirs of Targaryen and Velaryon, after another time jump of around six years, will presumably be young adults.
Elliot Grihault will portray Rhaenyra, Harry Collett will play her son Jacaerys (Casualty, Doolittle), and Harry Collett will also play Jacaerys’s brother, Lucy.
Phoebe Campbell (Midsomer Murders) has been cast as Rhaena Targaryen, and Bethany Antonia has been cast as Baela Targaryen (Stay Close). Prince Aegon (Tom Glynn-Carney; Dunkirk.
The Last Post) is played by Ewan Mitchell (Trigger Point; The Last Kingdom); Prince Aemond (Phia Saban; eyepatch; The Last Kingdom); and Prince Aemond’s sister Helaena (Phia Saban) (The Last Kingdom).
Since the often-ill King Viserys I isn’t in the trailer, the greens have gained political power in his absence. The Queen and the Hand are now the official spokespersons for the kingdom, but can they be trusted?
The Velaryon family has no legitimate successors, hence there is a gap in the succession of their noble titles. This necessitates the dispatch of Ser Vaemond Velaryon (Wil Johnson) to King’s Landing to plead the case of the injured Corlys.
A keen eye may have seen that he enters the city gates with bannermen from House Hightower, suggesting that an alliance is on the horizon between the two houses.
It’s not just him who’s headed back to the nation’s capital. Fearing the Hightowers’ potential destructiveness, Daemon and Rhaenyra is also planning to depart Dragonstone for King’s Landing.
Alicent is attempting to erase the memory of her vindictiveness toward the Hightowers by bringing up the subject. She wears a religious necklace with her ballgown, making her appear more devout than usual in the preview.
She may have turned to religion as a means of distancing herself from the Targaryens’ problematic marriage practices. Maria (Sonoya Mizuno) will also be making her triumphant return in the eighth episode.
Since Prince Daemon’s brothel-induced coma in Season 4, Episode 4, she has been MIA. Mysaria, also known as the “white worm,” is one of Daemon’s few close confidants, hence she will likely play a role in the royal intrigue.
The Dragon’s House: The Actors
Each member of the cast is more impressive than the last. The honourable King Viserys Targaryen will be portrayed by Paddy Considine. As the series opens, he is described as “a kind, gentle, and good man” who succeeds the Old King, Jaehaerys Targaryen.
Good men rarely make great monarchs, thus his chances of becoming one were slim. In addition to Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, and Emma D’Arcy, they head up an impressive cast. Daemon Targaryen, the younger brother of King Viserys, is portrayed by Smith.
Daemon is an excellent combatant and dragon rider “who has the authentic dragon’s blood in his veins. The gods are rumoured to toss a coin whenever a Targaryen is born.” Alicent Hightower, daughter of Otto Hightower, the King’s Hand, is played by Cooke.
Alicent, a Red Keep native, is said to have a keen political mind in addition to her beauty and royal bearing. And D’Arcy will play the king’s firstborn daughter, the dragon-riding Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen.
Also featured in the primary cast are Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, and Sonoya Mizuno.
According to Deadline, Ifans portrays Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King who serves his monarch and his kingdom, while Toussaint plays Lord Corlys Velaryon, who hails from a family with more wealth than the Lannisters and heritage as ancient as the Targaryens.
Princess Rhaenys Velaryon, the wife of Lord Velaryon and skilled dragon rider, will be played by Best. Maria, played by Mizuno, is a companion of Daemon, played by Smith.
Variety reports that Fabien Frankel, who starred in The Serpent, will play the Dornish commoner Ser Criston Cole. He is Lord Blackhaven’s steward and has no land or title of his own, but he is a fearsome swordsman.
Emily Carey and Milly Alcock will have recurrent roles in the first season. The trade publication Variety reports that Alcock will play a youthful version of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen.
Alicent Hightower, played by Olivia Cooke, is the politically astute daughter of Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King; Carey will play a younger version of this character.
The trailer’s biggest flaw is the noticeable lack of certain characters. In the trailer, we hear only that King Viserys I (Paddy Considine) and Corlys Velaryon (Steve Toussaint) are both very sick.
They are about to abdicate their thrones, so the rest of our main cast is gathering evidence in their favour.
