Warning, spoilers for the season premiere of “Westworld” follow.
Drogon, the largest of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons on “Game of Thrones,” survived the end of the show even when his mom didn’t. So it’s a shocker that he now meets his demise on a different HBO show: “Westworld.”
Again, spoilers below for the second episode of “Westworld” Season 3.
Sunday’s “Westworld” episode “The Winter Line” features a cameo from “Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, as well as Drogon the dragon.
Here’s what happens. Season 3 is set in 2058 and follows the robot Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) as she leaves the luxury theme park of Delos and infiltrates the human world. But some characters are still in the park. Around 39 minutes into the episode, Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) and Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth) — who are both robots — are wandering around the lab part of the park, searching for Maeve (Thandie Newton). Bernard is surprised to see activity in the lab, with human lab techs bustling around behind glass walls, along with some robot “hosts” and robot animals.
“I thought the parks were shut down?” Bernard asks. It’s a fair question, since Season 2 ended with massacre and bloodshed. That put a small damper on the parks as a vacation hot spot.
