    Here's The "House Of The Dragon" Characters At Each Age And Stage

    Some characters have barely aged a day while others have gone from babies to grown ass adults. And then there's Viserys...

    House of the Dragon has featured a lot of time jumps, with more than 20 years passing in the narrative since the show started. Are you ready for the Dance of the Dragons to jump-start after last night's episode?
