House Of The Dragon Episode 2 Just Hung A Tantalizing Chekhov’s Gun On The Mantel

During a rather unsettling scene in which Corlys Velaryon’s daughter, Leana Velaryon (Nova Fouellis-Mosé), attempts to charm the recently-widowed King Viserys, Leana questions Vierys about the legendary dragons Balerion and Vhagar, who first came to Westeros with Aegon the Conqueror. This brief conversation contains one of the most shocking twists of the entire episode, when it’s revealed that Vhagar is actually still alive — and nobody knows exactly where she is.

Fans on Reddit were incredibly excited by this bit of foreshadowing, with many theorizing that this legendary dragon will play a major role in the story’s future. “The revelation that there’s a massive dragon just out there SOMEWHERE is one of the single best Chekhov’s guns I’ve ever seen in television, and I can’t wait for it to go off,” wrote u/mwthecool. “I get giddy knowing there’s an OG dragon just flying around like it’s no biggie,” wrote u/SerDire. “One of the 3 that helped Aegon forge his kingdom.”

Book readers will know that, although the enormous Vhagar originally came to Westeros with Aegon, her most recent rider was actually King Viserys’ father, Baelon Targaryen. After Baelon’s death, she became riderless and disappeared, and now not even Viserys himself knows exactly where she is now. It seems very likely that this revelation is setting up something big for the series’ future, and it’s clear that fans are extremely intrigued by this lost legendary dragon — perhaps out there waiting for her next rider.
