"The way Rhaenyra Targaryen is about to become my whole personality."
Listen to this article
And just like that, the GOTCU (Game of Thrones Cinematic Universe) has got us by the throats, yet again. The first episodes of House of the Dragon? Yeah, we're already obsessed.
The Targaryen centric series takes place 172 years before our beloved Daenerys and the events of Game of Thrones, and follows as the heirs and family members fight, double-cross, scheme, plot and murder their way to the Iron Throne. (It's pretty much been described as "Succession with dragons".)
The brand new series is just as gruesome, just as shock-worthy, just as visually stunning and, yes, the memes are just as iconic.
