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

So far, so gory — it wouldn't be in the "Game of Thrones" universe if copious amounts of claret weren't shed. And the second run of "House of the Dragon" has already seen the infamous 'Blood and Cheese' slaughter, gaggles of executed ratcatchers and, last time around, a bloody battlefield pocked with dead soldiers. The brutal civil war has arrived in Westeros.

And now there be dragons. The episode 4 trailer (you can watch that at the bottom of this page) shows that both sides are going to bring the fire breathing beasts to the party. It looks like we're set for the Battle at Rook's Rest, which — at the halfway stage of the season — is likely to be a significant turning point for many of the major players in this game of... well, thrones.
