WARNING: This article contains spoilers dragon house Episodes 1-3.
There’s a lot of ground to cover when it comes to dragon house, The events described in the show’s first few episodes take place over the course of years, causing showrunners Ryan Kondal and Miguel Sapochnik to jump several times to advance the story. That means a lot happens in between episodes that we don’t see onscreen. Some newly revealed scenes that were filmed but didn’t make the final cut offer fans a look at the bigger picture.
At the end of episode 2, King Viserys Targaryen (Paddy Considine) announces that he will marry Alicent Hightower (Emily Carey), daughter of the King of the Hand and the most important of Viserys’ own child, Princess Rainera (Millie Alcock). is a good friend. Rainera was already on edge in fear of his father going back on his decision to name him the sole heir to his kingdom. We see that it is her main confidante who is now becoming the wife of Viserys.

Episode 3, however, comes years after Alicent is already married to Viserys and has given birth to a son, Aegon, while she is pregnant with another. Director Greg Yates, who directed episodes 2 and 3, shared some images and information about the deleted scenes, showing the heated results from that engagement, which also included Alicent’s wedding.
“Two scenes that unfortunately didn’t make it into the final cut, the fight between @millyalcock and @theemilycarey – both were quite powerful,” Yaitanes wrote on her Instagram Story. He also shared pictures of Alcock and Carey doing that intense fight.
