***Warning: Spoilers for Sport of Thrones***

Game of Thrones prequel collection House of the Dragon continues to be weeks away from its premiere, however the present’s creator has already shut down one fan concept… form of. It’s sophisticated. Let’s examine.

Home of the Dragon takes place over a century earlier than the occasions of Sport of Thrones and follows the occasions of The Dance of Dragons – a devastating civil warfare between Targaryen claimants to the Iron Throne.

A teaser trailer for the present dropped again in October final yr. Through the teaser, new character Allicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke) was noticed wielding a dagger presumed to be the Valyrian metal one Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) used to slay the Evening King.

However in a just lately revealed interview with Entertainment Weekly, Home of the Dragon creator Ryan Condal has each cooled and fuelled that individual concept with an advanced rationalization.

‘[It’s] 200 years earlier than the unique present. So there’s gonna be a ton of shared imagery’, he mentioned. ‘It’s a line to stroll when it comes to issues that you just carry again from the unique present and move differently’.

He continued: ‘[Valyrian steel] is a know-how that doesn’t exist anymore. Their blades will not be made anew. Valyrian metal [has] a hard and fast variety of property on the planet.’

‘Even [though the] Targaryens are in energy, they don’t seem to be capable of make Valyrian metal. So that they’re going to handle it’.

Condal’s quotes counsel that Allicent’s dagger is the identical because the one gifted by Brandon Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) to his sister Arya. Nevertheless, reporters from Leisure Weekly have instructed that it solely bears visible a likeness.

It’s tough to think about what number of arms a Valyrian metal dagger as soon as owned by the Targaryens will need to have handed by way of to succeed in the murderer, however the debate will certainly roll on regardless.

Condal’s quotes have emerged on the identical day that collection creator and A Tune of Ice and Fireplace creator George R. R. Martin confirmed that he can be attending this yr’s San Diego Comedian Con – the place followers consider a full trailer can be launched.
