5 facts from “House of the Dragonseason “‘s one finale that you might have missed

A fantastic narrative parallel between Rhaenyra’s birth in the finale and Daenerys Targaryen’s journey in “Game of Thrones” Season One.

In the concluding episode of “House of the Dragon,” Ryan Condal and the writing staff compared Rhaenyra’s miscarriage to Daenerys Targaryen’s experience with a stillborn child, as we had predicted they may in our episode 10 predictions.

In addition to being born during a storm on Dragonstone, where Rhaenyra suffered with her early labor, Dany also gave birth to a stillborn child in the first season of “Game of Thrones.”

Dany originally becomes pregnant with Khal Drogo in the first season of “Game of Thrones” (as well as in Martin’s “A Game of Thrones” novel), but she ultimately loses the child in a rite carried out by Mirri Maz Duur. Dany doesn’t recall giving delivery, but she was informed the baby had passed away.

‘Monstrous. Twisted. Dany is told by Mirri Maz Duur, “I personally pulled him forth.” He had small leather wings that resembled bat wings, was blind, and had scales on his body similar to those of a lizard.

In the “Fire and Blood” novel, Rhaenyra’s child is referred to as a “monster,” just like Rhaego.

In the book, it is written that when the baby finally gave birth, she “proved definitely a monster: a stillborn girl, twisted and misshapen, with a hole in her chest where her heart should have been, and a stubby, scaly tail.”

Instead of adding any mystical overtones to Rhaenyra’s child, the show took a much more melancholy, sorrowful route. Unlike Dany’s scenes in “Game of Thrones,” the Targaryen monarch was captured in the frame for the duration of her terrible stillbirth.
