Warning! There will be SPOILERS for "Lord of the Tides," episode 8 of season 1 of House of the Dragon. Here are the dates and times for "The Green Council," the ninth episode of Season 1 of House of the Dragon. The eagerly awaited prequel series adopts Game of Thrones' approach to episode and season structure. The first authorised Game of Thrones spinoff, House of the Dragon, is a prequel series that takes place 179 years before the events of the main series. The threat posed by the White Walkers is a surprising twist in the narrative of House of the Dragon, but neither House Stark nor any of the original characters receive much attention. The fact that House of the Dragon season 1 captures the height of the Targaryen dynasty and the power of the dragons in Westeros, however, is what makes it so exciting. Viserys has passed away by the time episode 8 ends, and Rhaenyra and Daemon's position is in very real danger.
The major Targaryen children reach the end of their adolescence in "The Lord of the Tides," with their rivalries becoming even more intense than those of their parents. There are only two episodes left in the first season of House of the Dragon, and the trailer for episode 9 suggests that chaos will break out as the Greens plot to seize the Iron Throne from Rhaenyra. Given that season 1 of House of the Dragon is averaging over 29 million viewers per episode (according to Variety) and has received positive reviews, the prequel is already challenging Game of Thrones in terms of popularity. Here is the air date for House of the Dragon episode 9, as well as the HBO Max streaming times for every other episode in the first season, as the drama nears its climactic Targaryen civil war.
When will HBO air the ninth episode of House of the Dragon?
The Green Council, episode 9 of House of the Dragon, debuts on HBO and HBO Max on Sunday, October 16 at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. EST. The eight seasons of Game of Thrones that were broadcast on HBO during its initial run all debuted during primetime during this time period. The first season of House of the Dragon airs on Mondays at 2 a.m. in the UK on Sky Atlantic and NOW.
How Many House of the Dragon Episodes Are There?
The first season of House of the Dragon, like its predecessor, consists of a total of 10 episodes, with each episode lasting, on average, about an hour. With a running time of 67 minutes, episode 8 of House of the Dragon is one of the prequel's longest episodes yet. Each of the first six seasons of Game of Thrones had ten episodes, but season seven only had seven, and season eight had six episodes with longer durations. If Game of Thrones follows the pattern of its first few seasons, the next episode should feature a thrilling climax and plenty of surprises: The Green Council, episode 9 of season 1 of House of the Dragon.
Dates for the Release of House of the Dragon
The remaining episodes of Season 1 of House of the Dragon will air every week on HBO and HBO Max. The last significant time jump in the series occurred in episode 8 of season 1 of House of the Dragon, which advanced the plot by about six years. The actors who are now playing Rhaenyra and Alicent's children will continue to play those roles throughout the prequel, making House of the Dragon episode 8's major recasting the last of the entire series. Unfortunately, "The Lord of the Tides" marked Paddy Considine's final appearance as King Viserys I Targaryen because the character passed away in the episode's final scene.
