House of the Dragon Episode 2 Finally Gives Us an Opening Scene

What would Game of Thrones be without its theme song? Composed by Ramin Djawadi, the song has become so indelible that you can play it on almost anything and the vibe is still there. Djawadi was told to avoid flutes, pianos and violins (because they’re so common in fantasy themes), and instead he made an absolute blast of cellos playing minor keys, making an animated map feel totally epic and surprisingly versatile.

So it makes sense that House of the Dragon wouldn’t reinvent the wheel there with their own title sequence. While co-creators Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik said: they wanted to avoid a title sequence in the pilot, episode 2 marks the official’s debut House of the Dragon opening order.

The title sequence brings back Game of Thrones’ original theme, but changes the visuals to match the series’ focus on House Targaryen. Meanwhile, the footage from the new title sequence takes viewers into a flying image of the show’s characters, represented by various trinkets and symbols, using the same gears and gears that turned the Westeros map for the original show’s opening sequence. Meanwhile, as the camera pans over all these symbols, a bright red stream of blood runs down the walls of a castle, eventually covering all the symbols.

Djawadi is working on the cellos again, something like that he told Entertainment Weekly he saw as the “big sound of” Game of Thrones.” Furthermore, Djawadi says he focused on pulling the themes he thought were most helpful from the original show in developing a new sound for House of the Dragon.

“This is all about the Targaryens, so the most important thing was to keep their sound and their themes,” Djawadi told EW. “The sound that Daenerys had is definitely connected to the Targaryens. The sound is the same. However, I think it’s important to point out that Daenerys actually has a different theme from the Dragon theme. So they are the two separate themes, but sound similar to each other.”
