Daemon dived in a horrific hallucination in the sequel toHouse of the Dragon?

Season 2 of House of the Dragon, which will resume just after the first one in the timeline, will plunge the Greens and Blacks into an unspeakable bloodbath. Indeed, the struggle for power between Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D'Arcy) and Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke), one to install herself on the throne, the other to install her son there, < strong>will take a barbaric turn in the rest of the series. And not only that, since according to the confidences of the screenwriter and executive producer Sarah Hess  Entertainment Weekly, the narrative arc of Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith) will even be comparable to that of'a psychological horror film: Shining by Stanley Kubrick!

There is a haunted house! We were really thinking about it. the Overlook Hotel. It's very funny because it's atmospheric… He can't sleep. Weird things are happening.He doesn't know if it's realor if it's in his head. We just wanted to have things unexplained and use that as a conduit to open it up a little more than it would be in normal life.

Within Harrenhal, The largest castle in Westeros which will be destroyed by Aegon the Conqueror and his dragons, will Daemon more or less go mad, or even attack? Rhaenyra? This is what the producer implies by referring to the famous 1980 film, in which a writer (Jack Nicholson) attacks his wife (Shelley Duvall) while his health deteriorated. mental health is deteriorating.

And you, what do you think of this parallel? Does it make you want to see the rest of the HBO series even more?
