Large dogs are sent out on a hunt by Aegon II, likely for Blood and Cheese. Blood and Cheese were captured and tortured in the books to reveal who hired them. A scene later shows Aegon beating someone, who could be either Blood or Cheese.

Sea Snake ship

A brief shot shows the Sea Snake ship, hinting at House Velaryon and its fleet’s involvement in the upcoming war.

Lannister Forces at the Golden Tooth

As Tyland mentions in the council, Jason Lannister is shown amassing the Lannister army at the Golden Tooth. The scene shows the Lannisters preparing for war.

Bracken and Blackwood conflict

Credits: Max

The trailer includes a scene depicting a minor conflict between the Brackens and the Blackwoods, possibly leading up to the Battle of the Burning Mill. Ryan Kopel’s character is seen confronting some Blackwood boys. These two houses have a long-standing feud that will culminate in this battle.

Dragon Eggs

Credits: Max

Four unidentified dragon eggs are shown, with fans guessing that they are the eggs that Daenerys receives in Game of Thrones. However, it is more likely that Syrax lays these eggs, out of which two will possibly be given to Rhaenyra’s sons Viserys and Aegon.

Elinda Massey

Credits: Max

Elinda Massey, an attendant to Rhaenyra, appears in King’s Landing. She is a noblewoman of House Massey, and her appearance in the Greens territory may indicate that she is an informant for King Aegon.

Sharako Lohar Fight

Credits: Max

A mud-wrestling scene between two unknown people likely features Sharako Lahar, an admiral of the Triarchy. In Fire and Blood, a Tyroshi pirate named Racallio Ryndoon fought Alyn of Hull in a mud pit, which may be a reference to that scene.

Dead Darklyn soldiers
