Cover of House of the Dragon in the dark, HBO responds to furious fans

It seems that it is becoming almost a habit of House of the Dragon to bring back to the series not only the tributes and references to The Throne of Swords, but also the errors themselves. In fact, in the third episode of the spin-off there had already been an oversight which had entertained the fans, because it remembered exactly the same scenario as when a glass of Starbucks appeared in Game of Thrones.

This time, however, there is very little to laugh about and HBO itself had to intervene, to calm the ire of the furious fans for what happened in the seventh episode of House of the Dragon. During some scenes set in the late night, the darkness was so dark that it was almost impossible to see what was happening on the screen. The same situation that occurred in the episode The Long Night of Game of Thrones during the battle against the White Walkers.

On the web, the same controversy has been triggered by the fandom as it had happened for Game of Thrones. One tweet in particular went viral because HBO responded to a fan demanding a written apology from them:

I demand that HBO write down an apology for a completely dark episode of House of the Dragon.

And apparently the user in question was satisfied:

Hi Stephen! We are glad you pointed out that the night scene shown in the seventh episode of House of the Dragon appears too dark. This is an intentional creative choice to give a soft lighting to the scene. Thank you! 

An answer that explained the reason for this choice but unfortunately does not solve the problem, because those who saw the episode certainly struggled to follow the events shown on the screen. Curiously, both dark episodes in question were shot by Miguel Sapochnik, who also gave about the same motivations for Game of Thrones that HBO released.
In fact, even in that case it was a deliberate choice, because it was necessary to create a certain atmosphere suitable for the type of scene. Too bad that in both cases, the spectators were able to grasp very little of that particular atmosphere that surely would have made a difference.

House of the Dragon is visible on Sky Atlantic with one episode per week, as per calendar of the Sky and NOW TV releases.

House of the Dragon, the summary of the first season

The first season of the TV series House of the Dragon concludes after ten episodes loaded with content, mainly inserted through gods time jumps between one episode and another of House of the Dragon. This of time jumps is a narrative device that allows you to briefly tell long events in the story, showing only the essentials on the screen.

During these time jumps that occurred in the episodes of the TV series House of the Dragon, there have been weddings and new births that are not always easy to locate. Furthermore some of the protagonists of House of the Dragon change actors more than once. An action necessary to justify the physical growth of the characters, which takes place precisely during the time jumps of House of the Dragon.
