House of the Dragon Confirms Easter Egg Connected to Daenerys Targaryen

Fans love connecting the dots when it comes to shows and spinoffs, and though we know that the Targaryens are all directly connected to Daenerys, the episode The Burning Mills has an Easter (or rather Dragon) Egg that Game of Thrones fans would love.

In an interview with Mashable, director Geeta Vasant Paterl confirmed that the dragon eggs that Rhaenyra sends to the Vale with Rhaena are the same eggs that will be gifted to Daenerys Targaryen a hundred years later. Patel says, “Those are Daenerys’ eggs… All of us who work on this show are big Game of Thrones fans, so it was very exciting to shoot that scene.”

While this sounds like a harmless easter egg, there are those fans online that are already crying foul that the show isn’t keeping to the established lore. While it wasn’t explicitly pointed out, it was theorized that Daenerys’ eggs come from Dreamfyre, Helaena’s dragon.

Since the series itself has been taking liberties with the source material, it’s easy to deduce that they’re just making a new origin for the eggs. After all, it doesn’t have any huge consequences to the overall story. It’s just an interesting piece of lore that gives backstory to the dragon eggs that will eventually hatch into the only dragons that appear on Game of Thrones.

We should expect more connections to A Song of Ice and Fire down the line, but for now I think some fans should accept that the show is going to take liberties with the established lore of the books (and that’s okay).
