When it comes to fantasy, very few come close to the amazing world-building ability of George R. R. Martin. And just as we are a fan of Martin’s work, Martin is a fan of perfection, one of the reasons why his next book in the ASOIAF series ‘Winds of Winter’ is taking so long. So when he got the chance to work with his “superfan” Ryan Condal in the upcoming prequel House of The Dragon, he made sure to include a few particular details in the new HBO Max adaptation. However, even then some details had to be left out, for example, the time jumps in season 1.

MeanwhileHere’s why Alicent’s third son Daeron Targaryen wasn’t in House of the Dragon Episode 6

Martin wrote on his blog, Not A Blog:

“I wanted to address the “time jumps” in the HOUSE OF THE DRAGON too. Not with any kind of official “statement,” but with some musings on the subject. There’s a lot to be said. I do not have the time to say it now, though. Maybe in my next blog, or the one after that… or maybe never, since work keeps piling up.

Very briefly, however, I think Ryan has handled the “jumps” very well, and I love love love both the younger Alicent and Rhaenyra and the adult versions, and the actresses who play them. (Truth be told, we have an incredible cast, and I love all of them).

Do I wish we’d had more time to explore the relationship between Rhaenyra and Ser Harwin, the marriage of Daemon and Laena and their time in Pentos, the birth of various and sundry children (and YES, Alicent gave Viserys four children, three sons and a daughter, their youngest son Daeron is down in Oldtown, we just did not have the time to work him in this season), and everything else we had to skip? Sure.”

Do you think the time jumps were justified in season 1? Join the discussion on our Discord server.
