House of the Dragon viewers spot show’s first major editing fail

WARNING: This article contains spoilers for House of the Dragon

The new Game of Thrones spin off series House of the Dragon is only three episodes in and already, viewers have spotted an editing error.

Those who are caught up the storyline of the House of Targaryen will know that King Viserys is suffering from a flesh eating infection that is rapidly attacking his body.

In the latest episode, we have fast forwarded two years and Viserys' illness has gotten worse, so much worse that he has now lost two fingers on his hand.

However, viewers pinpointed a scene where Viserys' actor, Paddy Considine, can be seen still wearing a green glove, which has clearly been missed by the editing team.

Viewers who spotted the error were quick to joke about it, with one person writing: "Not the green screen glove on Viserys’s missing fingers."

Another added: "Someone’s gonna get in trouble. They forgot to cgi out Viserys fingers in episode 3. Hahaha

However, some fans hadn't even twigged that Viserys is ill and were convinced that they were seeing things when he was later missing fingers.

One viewer tweeted: "Also, did Viseyrs lose 2 fingers? Anyone catch that or I’m tripping?"

While another said: "He is loosing fingers fast".

This episode also saw Prince Daemon - played by Matt Smith - and Lord Corlys - Steve Toussaint - fighting a losing battle against Crabfeeder’s army, forcing King Viserys to step in by sending out reinforcements – much to his brother’s anger.

As Viserys reads out his letter in a voiceover, we see Daemon taking matters into his own hands and defiantly rowing himself across the water to surrender, waving a white flag and giving up his sword.

The plan works as a curious Crabfeeder emerges from his cave and his men approach.

However, it's all part of Daemon's master plan. In the chaotic battle, we see him slaughter soldiers before following a retreating Crabfeeder into his cave. Daemon emerges in glorious victory, dragging the torso of the Crabfeeder behind him, entrails and all.

Despite him saying nothing in the episode, viewers heaped on the praise for Smith's portrayal.

One fan tweeted: "Just realised that Daemon said not one word from the moment he came off the dragon till he walked out with you know what. Matt Smith is killing this role."

Another agreed, writing: "Whoever chose Matt Smith to play Daemon Targaryen deserves their flowers. I could watch those last scenes from last nights episode over and over again."

A third tipped him for an Emmy, tweeting: "Nah Daemon really stole the entire episode without saying a single word of dialogue......Matt Smith is coming for those Emmys man".

House of the Dragon airs on Sundays on HBO, and on Mondays on Sky Atlantic and NOW in the UK.
