House of the Dragon Season 2 to feature ‘Battle of the Burning Mill’, the first true battle in the civil war



The second season of House of the Dragon will have a lot more blood than the first. The upcoming combat scenes are being compared by fans to the infamous Battle of the Bastards from Game of Thrones, with even more horrific sequences. Fans are hoping that many of the fight scenes from the book will appear on film because the new season only consists of eight episodes. One of the most anticipated ones is the Battle of the Burning Mill.

The Battle of the Burning Mill might arrive in Episode 2

As the release of the highly awaited second installment of House of the Dragon inches closer, a lot more details have been leaked. According to the X account Wake The Dragon, Battle of the Burning Mill, filmed by director Clare Kilner, will be a part of Episode 2 of House of the Dragon, given it is the first real battle of the Dance of the Dragons. Amos Bracken’s appearance in the trailer further solidifies the theory.

The importance of the Battle of the Burning Mill

The battle marks the site of the first Targaryen civil war’s slaughter and losses. It all started when House Bracken, commanded by Ser Amos Bracken, allied with King Aegon II Targaryen, while House Blackwood, under Lord Samwell Blackwood, announced support for Queen Rhaenyra. The already decades-long rivalry between the two Houses added fuel to the fire.
