House Of The Dragon: 6 Clues About How Big The First Major Time Jump Will Be
House of the Dragon is jumping ahead in time, and there are some clues about how much time will pass off-screen.
House of the Dragon Reaction 1×6 The Princess and the Queen
Badd Medicine here and its House of the Dragon reaction time. And big chance taking this big of a time jump.
Rhaenyra Targaryen was getting married to Ser Laenor Velaryon, last we saw her. In this episode, the first thing we see is Rhaenyra giving birth. It’s a boy! Except it’s not the Rhaenyra we know. Now 10 years older, the princess is played by Emma D’Arcy instead of Milly Alcock.
The second thing we see, literally as the child is delivered, is a messenger coming in saying the queen wants to see the child. What impeccable timing. King Viserys is counseled by Lyonel, the queen gets advice from a Strong of her own — “Clubfoot” Larys Strong, who in episode 5 comforted Alicent in the Godswood. We see Laena Targaryen giving birth to her third child with Daemon. But it’s not going well, and a doctor gives Daemon the same choice Viserys got in episode 1: You can save the baby, but you’ll have to sacrifice the mother. Daemon, allegedly the bad Targaryen, refuses.

House Of The Dragon: 6 Clues About How Big The First Major Time Jump Will Be
House of the Dragon is jumping ahead in time, and there are some clues about how much time will pass off-screen….

Considering that many time jumps are likely ahead, it’s worth getting into the habit of looking for clues and making some guesses. So, let’s start with the most obvious clue!
The biggest clue about how far ahead the timeline will jump in Episode 3 is simply that Milly Alcock and Emily Carey are still playing Rhaenyra Targaryen and Alicent Hightower, respectively. The characters will be played by Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke by the time that the show moves them into full adulthood. With Alcock and Carey appearing in the promo material, we should expect some passage of time after the end of Episode 2, but not quite a decade into the future when we might expect the older actresses to step into the roles. Given that both D’Arcy and Cooke are heavily featured in trailer footage, they definitely will have key parts to play in the first season… eventually.
The story will pick up far enough down the line that Viserys has what appears to be a healthy young son who’s well out of infancy. I’m no expert at guessing children’s ages based off of mere moments of trailer footage or a still photo, but I’d say that the child – who Otto Hightower reveals in the promo is named Aegon – looks to be about 2- or 3-years-old. Enough time has passed that Viserys and Alicent got married, had a son, and that son is old enough and healthy enough that Otto is already scheming to put him on the throne instead of Rhaenyra as the king’s heir.
Alicent is also pregnant in the sneak peek at what’s ahead. While I’m no more an expert at guessing how far along in pregnancy a character is based on a few moments of trailer footage and/or a photo than I am at knowing ages, she looks like she’s just about ready to give birth. Viserys’ family with his new queen is growing, with enough time for one son to be born and another child seemingly set to arrive sooner rather than later.
Rhaenyra was 15 in Episode 2, which we know is not “of age” in the Seven Kingdoms based on what Daemon said to his niece on Dragonstone. There was no discussion of arranging a marriage for Rhaenyra in the first two episodes, but Viserys is talking about her having her own child “soon enough” and angrily dismissing her protest that she doesn’t want to get married in the promo for Episode 3. It seems that Rhaenyra either has or will soon come of age.
If you’re wondering who Laenor Velaryon is, that’s a fair point, as he barely qualifies as a
Well, the trailer and preview photos don’t give away any hard answers about how much time has passed, but we can make some estimates. Laenor growing from the boy at the tourney to the young man in battle makes me think
Milly Alcock and Emily Carey still playing Rhaenyra and Alicent with older actresses waiting in the wings makes me think that no more than five years at most have passed, especially with Rhaenyra still unmarried. Other than Laenor growing up, it’s hard to guess much based on the Stepstones fighting, given that Matt Smith and Steve Toussaint will continue playing Daemon and Corlys across every time jump.
