***WARNING: "House of the Dragon" season 2 SPOILERS follow***

For those "GoT" fans who have read George R. R. Martin's prequel novel "Fire & Blood", the infamous 'Blood and Cheese' incident was always going to be something to... well, 'look forward to' is probably the wrong turn of phrase.

And the brutal, distressing murder of one of King Aegon II's twin children certainly got season 2 of "House of the Dragon" off to an impactful start. Vengeance was always going to be served up on he who wears the crown by Prince Daemon, and dishes don't come much colder than filicide. A son for a son, indeed.

It sets up a second season that will see the Dance of the Dragon descend into the depths of hell. A new "House of the Dragon" season 2 trailer has teased dragon chases, strategic manoeuvring and the storm clouds of war gathering at pace.

There's certainly going to be a lot to pack into the next seven instalments, which we suppose is why episode 2 will be "House of the Dragon's" longest yet.

With the "House of the Dragon" season 2 premier delivering Max's best ever streaming figures, the "Game of Thrones" prequel series is bona fide unmissable television. So read on to see how you can watch "House of the Dragon" season 2 online with episode 2 streaming details below.
