House of the Dragon Season 1 Episode 5 Book Club Recap, ‘We Light the Way’

Game of Thrones is back with the prequel, “House of the Dragon.” Every week, Post Show Recaps provides immediate reactions, deep dive analysis, and absurd antics surrounding the return of the biggest franchise on HBO.

“House of the Dragon” centers on the Targaryan dynasty roughly 200 years before the events of “Game of Thrones.” It’s based on portions of George R.R. Martin’s 2018 novel “Fire & Blood.” Expect the show to live up to its predecessor and its very own name — with fire, blood, and dragons aplenty.

In this podcast, DM Filly (@DMFilly), Taran Armstrong (@ArmstrongTaran), and Mari Forth (@MariTalks2Much) discuss Season 1 Episode 5 of “House of the Dragon” from the perspective of those who have read “Fire & Blood.” They begin with a discussion of the episode that’s friendly for everyone to listen in on, before shifting into major book spoilers.
