Author George R.R. Martin, the creator of the fascinating world of Westeros, has given the fans a reason to look forward to the upcoming season of ‘House of the Dragon‘. As the show is set for the release of its second season, Martin described the first two episodes of the show as “very dark“, hinting at an emotional rollercoaster for the fans.
Martin said that the ‘House of The Dragon’ co-creator Ryan Condal allowed him to take a sneak-peak into the first two episodes of the upcoming season. He carefully treaded while giving out comments on those episodes while avoiding any spoilers.

Martin, however, had a variety of other ways to describe what he felt about the show. “Of course, I am hardly objective when talking about anything based on my own work… but I have to say, I thought both episodes were just great. (And they are not even finished yet),” he said.
“Dark, mind you. Very dark. They may make you cry. (I did not cry myself, but one of my friends did). Powerful, emotional, gut-wrenching, heart-rending. Just the sort of thing I like,” the ‘Game of Thrones‘ series author warned.
