House of the Dragon
House of the Dragon Ep 3 Cast: Paddy Considine, Milly Alcock, Matt Smith
House of the Dragon Ep 3 Director: Greg Yaitanes
Streaming Platform: Disney+ Hotstar
House of the Dragon appears to be settling in nicely, and as we enter the third episode of the show, with another three-year time leap, there is a lot to unpack. After the second episode concentrated on the main characters and their alleged motivations, the new one serves as a constant reminder that we are in the universe of Game of Thrones, and it’s not just the title theme that shares parallels. If there’s one thing the creators have nailed so far, it’s helping us feel the connection between the original series and its prequel in less obvious ways. My favorite takeaway from the third episode, which has a lot going on. Paddy Considine’s King Viscerys I’s most basic delivery on Jason Lannister (Jefferson Hall) is “That man’s pride has pride,” as he says. What better way to characterize a Lannister?
In terms of the episode as a whole, it takes us through a number of monumental components that will impact what comes next in the first season. One such example is Queen Alicent Hightower’s (Emily Carey) grip on King Viscerys I. (Considine). After the huge reveal in the second episode that the King would take a new bride, Lady Alicent, the third episode jumps ahead nearly three years, with Alicent now being a mother to the King’s son Aegon Targaryen and pregnant with another on the way. When it comes to being in service to the queen, Alicent appears to have taken notes from Queen Aemma Arryn, as the late Queen tells Rhaenyra in the first episode, “The Childbed is our battlefield, We must learn to confront it with a stern lip.”
The third episode of House of the Dragon begins with a shot of Prince Daemon’s (Matt Smith) dragon Caraxes spitting fire on hordes of warriors battling off the Crabfeeder’s men at the Stepstones. The opening shot shows a soldier celebrating the arrival of Prince Daemon and his dragon as his savior, but the next moment we see him brutally crushed under Caraxes’ giant foot, a reminder of how Daemon is not sound when it comes to planning a strategic attack, but the idea of showing off the power he holds while sitting atop the dragon is much more ingrained in him. Of course, by the end of the hour-long episode, you’ll have a new perspective on things, as Dameon’s character arc prepares for a major shift.
In Kingswood, Princess Rhaenyra (Milly Alcock) forcefully accompanies the King and Queen (Hightower) for a hunt organized in celebration of her step-sibling, Aegon’s second birthday, which is not dissimilar to the incident at the Stepstones with Caraxes spitting fire. The King’s son’s arrival has put Rhaenyra under strain over her status in the Targaryen household and her promised claim to the throne. In the midst of it all, the Princess is forced to consider marriage, with Jason Lannister mentioned as one of the potential suitors. Rhaenyra, unlike Alicent, isn’t concerned with securing her place. She has the heart of Arya Stark, in my opinion, who prefers to defy all expectations of her and is constantly striving to prove that she is more than what others perceive her to be. Rhaenyra’s boar-hunting excursion is one of the new episode’s high points. The Princess is making a powerful point as she returns to Kingswood, covered in blood.
Prince Daemon is another Targaryen drowning in blood and battle scars on the other side of Rhaenyra (Smith). In the midst of a nearly three-year-long war with the Crabfeeder and his troops, Daemon viciously beats up a messenger who delivers a word from King Viscerys about sending reinforcements to assist win the battle. Daemon (Smith) is offended by the offer that implies he is incapable of ending the strife in the Stepstones, so he takes it upon himself to defeat the Crabfeeder and his soldiers in an epic fight sequence that spans the second half of the episode. The episode depicts how each Targaryen, Viscerys, Rhaenyra, and Daemon have been battling it out in their own ways to find the worth of their own blood.
The third episode packs a lot of punch with its action scenes in the second half, but the opening shot with the dragon feels a little unsatisfying due to the special effects falling short of our expectations. The performances improve with each episode, and in the third, I was particularly struck with Paddy Considine, who brilliantly captures King Viscery’s mental instability. Matt Smith also excels at action situations, and his closing shot in the episode is just breathtaking. Emily Carey also does an excellent job of keeping Alicent’s inner workings hidden from us.
So far, House of the Dragon appears to be on the right track, and one of the aspects that I find most impressive is how well the show has handled the time jumps with each episode without making us feel as if we are losing the context of the problems unfolding and what may have occurred previously.

Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor are one of Bollywood’s most adored couples. After dating for over five years, the couple will tie the knot in an intimate ceremony at their Mumbai home on April 14, 2022, after being in a relationship for five years. The couple announced in June that they are expecting their first child together. Ranbir and Alia have a massive social media following, and fans go crazy whenever they post photos together.
Recently, the Gangubai Kathiawadi actress took to Instagram and shared a new photo with her husband Ranbir. Alia captioned the photo “home,” along with an infinity sign and a heart emoji. They were most recently seen in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra, alongside Mouni Roy, Nagarjuna Akkineni, and Amitabh Bachchan. This was Ranbir and Alia’s first on-screen collaboration.

How to Watch Thursday NFL Games on OTT: Los Angeles Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Thursday Night Football kicks off with the Kansas City Chiefs’ home debut against the Los Angeles Chargers, which will be streamed live on Amazon Prime Video.
For the first time, an entire NFL season will be broadcast exclusively via a streaming service. On Thursday nights, Amazon Prime Video will broadcast 15 games.
Why is this important to Tennessee Titans fans?
The Titans are the only team with two games on Amazon Prime Video on Thursday Night Football. It has been announced that there will be no linear television broadcasting for fans located outside of the Nashville market for Tennessee’s Week 10 game against the Green Bay Packers and its Week 17 game against the Dallas Cowboys, which will both be available on Amazon Prime Video.
This season, you can watch Thursday Night Football games by signing up for Amazon Prime, which costs $14.99 per month, or Amazon Prime Video, which costs $8.99 per month. You should take advantage of the 30-day free trial that is available to everyone.
It happened as a result of an agreement between DirecTV and Amazon. As a result, Thursday Night Football games would be broadcast to thousands of restaurants. It could be the best option for you.
Thus, if you already watch Titans games on NewsChannel 5 (a CBS affiliate) or Fox-17, you can watch them on TNF on a local affiliate (a Fox affiliate). ESPN, for example, will broadcast Tennessee’s Week 2 Monday Night Football game. Fox-17 will broadcast it both locally and nationally.
