House of the Dragon Episode 3 trailer is out. HBO has released a preview video teasing the first epic battle sequence for the Game of Thrones prequel. Another time leap is expected, as it digs into the heart of the story, introducing new relationships and an enemy, The Crabfeeder, played by Daniel Scott-Smith. The Prince Admiral is notorious for hitting his enemies with spikes, which serve as bait for the carbs. House of the Dragon Episode 3 will release on September 5th at 6:30am IST/9pm ET on Disney+ Hotstar and HBO Max.
While House of the Dragon Episode 2 was picked up nearly six months after the events of the first, this new teaser from HBO suggests a big time skip. The HotD Episode 3 preview begins with the birth of Aegon, the son of newlywed King Viserys (Paddy Considine) and Alicent Hightower (Emily Carey). Obviously, this enrages Princess Rainera (Millie Alcock), who not only challenges her heir to the Iron Throne, but also has to watch her best friend marry her father. “Aegon will be king. He is the firstborn son of the king,” says a voiceover.

Tensions rise between father and daughter, with Rainya going to hell for not marrying and having children. “Even I do not exist above tradition and duty, Rainera!” King Viserys screams, causing her to flee the kingdom in search of peace. The Crabfeeder steps into the Land of Bloodstone, hunting down men and sabotaging Lord Corliss Valerian’s (Steve Tuissant) fleet. Often addressed as a sea snake, the sailor prepares for battle against the crabfeeder and his army. Under the command of Damon Targaryen (Matt Smith), the house goes to war, even summoning a dragon when the situation demands it.
Last week, five days after the start of Episode 1, House of the Dragon was renewed for a second season. The development came after the Game of Thrones prequel garnered more than 10 million viewers overnight, setting the HBO record for a series opener. “Our phenomenal cast and crew took on a great challenge and exceeded all expectations. Thank you very much [to co-creator and executive producer George R.R. Martin and co-creator and showrunners Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik] To lead us on this journey,” said Francesca Orsi, Executive VP, HBO Programming.
Other Game of Thrones spin-off series are also in development, including a Jon Snow sequel series.
House of the Dragon streams in India every Monday at 6:30 a.m. ET on Disney+ Hotstar, and Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on HBO Max wherever available. Season one consists of 10 episodes.
