The huge Game of Thrones callback you might have missed in House of the Dragon

Game of Thrones spin-off series House of the Dragon featured a nod to a huge Daenerys twist.

The statement in question appeared in a scene where King Viserys and the expecting Queen Aemma are conversing while the latter is taking a bath.

"After this horrible pregnancy, I wouldn't be astonished if I hatch a real dragon," she says to her husband.

After the season one finale, in which she emerges from a fire surrounded by her young dragons, Daenerys also came to be known as "the Mother of Dragons."

The introduction of the episode informs the viewer that what they are about to watch is set 172 years before the birth of Daenerys,

therefore this scene would have occurred roughly 188 years after the statement was spoken in House of the Dragon.

 By the time Game of Thrones finishes, she will be around 16 years old.
