The problem will be fixed, and a new version will be available on streaming platforms.
HBO will correct the visual effects error discovered by eagle-eyed fans in the third episode of House of the Dragon and update the streaming platforms.
Following last Sunday’s House of the Dragon episode, titled “Second of His Name,” viewers spotted the VFX blunder during a scene starring King Viserys, as played by Paddy Considine, in which he hands a rolled-up letter over to a soldier. HBO is “planning to update the error on its streaming platforms,” according to Variety.
Two of the king’s fingers are totally green, as they were most likely wrapped in green fabric for post-production editing. The fingers might have been removed entirely to depict the evolution of Viserys’ strange ailment, assuming that the maggot treatment he had in Episode 2 was ineffective in slowing “the advance of the rot.”

Some fans compared this VFX blunder to the notorious Game of Thrones moment from the fourth episode of the last season, in which viewers noticed a stray throwaway coffee cup left on a table in one of the scenes.
After the error went viral on social media, HBO issued an appropriately amusing response and digitally removed the cup from the scene.
The green-fingered problem in House of the Dragon is likely to be fixed before the fourth episode airs on September 11.
The debut episode of House of the Dragon, which is now available on YouTube, drew nearly 10 million people across HBO and HBO Max, making it the most watched new show in HBO history. HBO committed to delivering more stories from the great saga of House Targaryen by renewing the Game of Thrones prequel for a second season less than a week after its premiere.
Is House of the Dragon going to be released?
House of the Dragon premiered in the United States on August 21, 2022. Due to the time difference, it was not available to UK viewers until the early hours of Monday, August 22. HBO first stated that there would be a prequel to Game of Thrones back in 2019.
House of Dragon is a sequel or a prequel?
House Targaryen’s reign begins: Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon, is now available. Based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” the series tells the story of House Targaryen 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
What is the total number of dragons in the House of the Dragon?
The prequel series will depict House Targaryen as their most powerful when they possessed 17 dragons prior to the civil conflict known as the Dance of the Dragons. But how will you keep track of all the dragons in the House of the Dragon? The good news is that you are not required to.
What is the relationship between House of the Dragon and Game of Thrones?
The Targaryens were a prominent family in “Game of Thrones,” with Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen serving as the principal challenge to the throne. She and her brother were in exile at the time, but “House of the Dragon” takes place when their ancestor Viserys I is king.
