House of the Dragon Season 2 Writer Promises Brutal Blood and Cheese Scene

There is little doubt that people are expecting a lot in House of the Dragon Season 2. After all, the first season concluded with the event that would kickstart the Dance of the Dragons. Not surprisingly, fans are dreading the idea of the book's most ruthless revenge scheme playing out in the second season but as series writer Sarah Hess has confirmed, Blood and Cheese are coming next year.


In Fire and Blood, Daemon Targaryen decides to take revenge on the Greens for the murder of Lucerys Velaryon. He somehow enlists the duo simply known as Blood and Cheese who are self-proclaimed "debt collectors." The two sneak into the Red Keep and hold Queen Helaena Targaryen hostage along with her mother Alicent Hightower and her three young children. The men then force the young queen to make a terrible decision.

Although there are numerous brutal acts throughout the Dance of the Dragons, fans agree that what Blood and Cheese have done was truly terrifying because of its innocent victims. And because of that, House of the Dragon Season 2 is ready to adapt the terrifying crime.

“We are currently writing the finale of Season 2,” Sara Hess told Variety. She then confirmed that the writers’ room had already begun work on the on-screen version of the infamous Blood and Cheese storyline.

“I don’t think you will be disappointed,” she teased.

We're not sure if we should be happy or sad about the confirmation but it's certainly going to be something to look forward to next year.

House of the Dragon Season 2 has already been given the greenlight. However, it has not yet been revealed when the new season will start filming. Likewise, the second season has not been given an official release date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
