Can this be coincidence? At the beginning of “House Of The Dragon” Episode 7, Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith) collects three dragon eggs from the clutch of dragon mother Syrax (the dragon of Rhaenyra). Three eggs, as he then emphasizes again very clearly – why Of course, “Game Of Thrones” fans inevitably have to think of Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and her three dragon eggs, which then hatch into the dragons Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion at the end of Season 1. Yet are these really the same eggs?
The likely answer is no, it’s just a coincidence or possibly a tongue-in-cheek reprimand from those responsible for the series. Because in the book “Fire and Blood” by George RR Martin we learn that the dragon babies from Syrax probably go to the comrades-in-arms of Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy), i.e. to the blacks.

It’s not entirely clear, but at least in one case it’s pretty clear: Morning, Rhaena Targaryen’s (Phoebe Campbell) dragon, hatches from one of Syrax’s eggs. It’s even accurate three Eggs that Rhaena takes to the Vale during the course of the civil war between the rival Targaryen factions, one of which then hatches Morgen.
So probably this moment will be prepared in “House Of The Dragon” Episode 7especially since we also learn in “Fire and Blood” that Syrax collapsed just before the civil war broke out last has laid a clutch of eggs and the conflict between Rhaenyra and Alicent (Olivia Cooke) and their respective followers in episode 9 is finally threatening to break out.
So the three eggs in episode 7 are very likely not the same eggs that Daenerys got as a wedding gift many years later. However, as House Of The Dragon progresses, we might actually see where these dragon eggs came from and how they get to Essos, east of Westeros!
It is quite possible that the female dragon Dreamfyre is the mother of Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion. Dreamfire was briefly seen in House Of The Dragon as a mount for Helaena Targarayen (Evie Allen/Phia Saban).
In Fire and Blood we learn that Dreamfire was owned many years earlier by another (!) Rhaena Targaryen (the Targaryens aren’t particularly imaginative with their names, I’m afraid) who in turn had a friend and lover named Elissa Weitmann. And this Elissa one day stole three dragon eggs and sold them in the Free City of Braavos in Essos.
In order to show that, you would have to deviate a bit from the book template with “House Of The Dragon”. and just let Dreamfire lay the eggs later. Or those responsible for the series build in a flashback (there was already one or the other of these in “Game Of Thrones”), or tell other epochs from the history of the Targaryens that go beyond the civil war called “Dance of the Dragons”. .
The idea of turning House Of The Dragon into an anthology series of sorts after four seasons has actually been circulating for a long time and has only just received new nourishment from a statement by George RR Martin:
