'Game of Thrones': The 10 Best Dragon Moments

·Senior Writer, Yahoo Entertainment

Our long wait is (almost) over. A year after the Season 5 finale that launched a thousand fan theories, Game of Thrones is preparing to enter new territory in its sixth season, which debuts Sunday, April 24 on HBO. For the first time in its history, the series will venture completely off book, as the writers have lapped the release of author George R.R. Martin’s final two novels. So now, both readers and newbies will be on the same proverbial page when we return to Westeros, Dorne, and points beyond.

As viewers count down the days to Game of Thrones’ return, we here at Yahoo TV are launching our official countdown: #GoTIsComing. Check back here every day over the next month as we explore all of our favorite (and a few of our least favorite) people, places, and things about television’s most addictive show. From Direwolves and Dragons to the shows most hideous deaths and imperiled characters, we’re going to indulge or GoT obsession with the same fervor that Cersei imbibes alcohol. So raise a glass and toast the impending arrival of a long, cruel, and bloody Westerosi winter.


When Game of Thrones returns on April 24, we’re looking forward to catching up on what’s going on with Jon Snow, Cersei Lannister, and all the other human residents of Westeros. But to borrow a famous line from Daenerys Targaryen, our main question going into Season 6 is: “Where are the dragons?” Those scaly, fire-breathing beasts are the secret sauce in Game of Thrones’ exotic stew, always adding an extra dash of heat to the proceedings.

One can only hope that a mother and dragon reunion is only a few episodes away. In the meantime, here’s a look back through the best moments in the Targaryen family album so far. Dragon kids… they grow up so fast.  

Game of Thrones Season 6 premieres Sunday, April 24 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
