spectators who find these funny easter eggs will be rewarded

The days are numbered until the first episode ofHouse of the Dragona spin-off from Game Of Thronesor unveiled in the catalog ofSCO next August 22. To help fans wait, Miguel Sapochnik, one of the show’s showrunners, is launching a challenge to the spectators : he promises them a prize if they manage to find those hidden objects within the first ten episodes of the fiction!

House of the Dragonwhat to expect

While the release of HBO Max (Warner) is delayed in France, OCS (Orange) will certainly fill up with new subscribers! And for good reason, from next August 22, the streaming service will air the first episode ofHouse of the Dragonspin-off of the event series Game Of Thrones. Composed of ten episodes, the show will tell the origins of the Targaryen family, revealing its meteoric rise but also all that led to its fall.

The story will take place approximately 200 years before the events in GOT and should begin with the dilemma that will surround King Viserys I Targaryen (Paddy Considine). Indeed, the lord of Westeros must designate his heir. If his brother, Prince Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith), who happens to be the closest man to the crown, has every chance of being chosen, Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy), eldest daughter of Viserys, intends to assert her rights. Until then, no woman has ever sat on the Iron Throne and the Princess intends to be the first.

Naturally, House of the Dragon will be distinguished from its parent series by many elements. The spin-off will contain fewer sex scenes, in particular the non-consensual ones, and will offer a more important place to female characters. You should also expect to find a whole horde of dragonswhen they still had all the freedom to spread their wings in a world shared with humans.

The creators of the show are amused by a mistake made in Game Of Thrones

At the time of its release, Game Of Thrones had drawn the wrath of Internet users for multiple reasons. Fans had notably accused the creators of glorifying rape because of some of the sex that was particularly difficult to watch, to have botched the eighth and final seasonbut also… for forgetting a Starbucks cup in a sequence!

This error had caused a stir and had given rise to numerous hijackings on social networks. David Benioff and DB Weiss, the showrunners, told the Japanese media StarChannel have laughed a lot at this oversight : “We were so focused on Daenerys and Jon Snow that we just didn’t see that coffee cup, right in the middle. At first I couldn’t even believe it, and then I got pretty ashamed, because how could we miss a cup of coffee in the middle of the shot? And then eventually, sooner or later, it just ended up being funny. It’s just a mistake, and we prefer to laugh about it.”

Three years after the controversy, the creators of House of the Dragon still having fun. The proof, they decided to hiding Starbucks cups in many scenes in Season 1which they then digitally removed. “We left Starbucks cups everywhere so we could hide them digitally”explained Miguel Sapochnik to the HollywoodReporter before specifying that the spectators who find these cups will win a symbolic prize: a cup of coffee. So, real wink or perfectly put together marketing stunt?
