Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is one of the most anticipated series of 2022. The upcoming series has created a lot of hype with several posters, pictures, and two teasers. The teasers have revealed several interesting details about the show, including the majestic dragons and a particular dagger that caught the eye of some eagle-eyed fans. The most common theory is that this is the same catspaw dagger from Game of Thrones, the weapon that Arya Stark used to kill the Night King. House of The Dragon’s showrunner Ryan Condal recently revealed that definitely is the case.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Condal talked about the teaser, and praised the fans for identifying the dagger. He said, “There’s a ton of shared history here. There’s gonna be a lot of linkage in terms of places you go and buildings you see. That’s 200 years before the original show. So there’s gonna be a ton of shared imagery.”

“It’s a line to walk in terms of things that you bring back from the original show and pass in a different way,” he says. “I think that it’s important to have connective tissue there to show people that it is the same world and history reflects on objects and cast of people and sigils as we move on down through time without it becoming too self-referential.”

“It’s a technology that doesn’t exist anymore. Their blades are not made anew,” he explains. “So all the Valyrian steel is a fixed number of assets in the world. Even in a time when Targaryens are in power, they themselves as Targaryens are not able to make Valyrian steel. So they’re going to take care of it. So it’s believable that something that did exist in the original show would’ve existed here, perhaps in a slightly different packaging.”
