Daemon begins to prepare for war

Game of Thrones fans have showered the prequel House of the Dragon with a lot of love and just like its predecessor, dishing out characters, storylines, and everything else that makes it so engaging. The civil war Dance of the Dragons has not officially begun yet, and fans have been taking sides from the beginning of the show. Even the show’s director Clare Kilner and writer Sara Hess know about this growing thirst for grey characters, especially for Daemon Targaryen, and they were quite astounded by it.
