HBO has defended the latest episode of “House of the Dragon” after viewer complaints that it was too dark… literally.

The 7th episode features scenes set during at dusk and at night, however some viewers said the lighting left them unable to properly see what was going on.

In response, HBO Max said: “The dimmed lighting of this scene was an intentional creative decision.”

This of course brings back memories of the Game of Thrones episode titled “The Long Night” which aired back in 2019.

It featured a major battle at night, and there were the exact same complaints… that it was too dark to see much of what was going on.
