House of the Dragon fans complain Episode 7 was just too dark




In House of the Dragon Episode 7, “Driftmark,” the dimmed lighting of a scene was an intentional creative decision. However, fans were not happy with the way it was presented and they took to social media to express their disappointment. They complained that they had to strain their eyes and focus a lot to see what was going on in each scene because they were not able to follow what was happening in some parts. A similar thing had happened with the Game of Thrones Season 8 episode, The Long Night.

The makers revealed that in House of the Dragon Episode 7, a significant part of the Driftmark scenes were shot day for night. That being said, day-for-night is a technique used by filmmakers to create images that appear as though they were shot at night when they actually weren’t. It involves using different film stocks or filters and adjusting lighting during filming so that it looks like it would if it were nighttime instead of daytime.


With that being said, HBO’s House of the Dragon has been a show that thrived on unpredictability. And this time around, while filming Laena‘s funeral scene in Cornwall, the weather didn’t cooperate either.

It’s so awful I gave up and am watching with my eyes closed. Understand what’s going on better by listening. Pathetic
