Although Carey admitted that she is not privy to important information regarding Alcock’s or her return to House of the Dragon in season 2, she has revealed that there have been talks, likely from the showrunners, about how they can be used again in the years to come. As the series deals with nearly 30 years of the House Targaryen’s history, it is possible for Carey and Alcock to reprise their roles as Princess and Queen in flashbacks of future episodes. Although Cooke and D’Arcy will claim the roles of Rhaenyra and Alicent for the remainder of the show following the time-jump, the younger stars can fill in the gaps of the narrative if elaboration of backstory is required.
