MADRID, 12 Sep. (CultureLeisure) –

The fourth episode of The House of the Dragon has reignited the controversy with his bed sequences. The Game of Thrones prequel series has shown in its last installment a disturbing sex scene starring the young Rhaenyra Targaryen (Milly Alcock) that has generated multitude of reactions in social networks. And not all have been positive…


In 1×04 of The House of the Dragon, Rhaenyra secretly accompanies her uncle Daemon (Matt Smith) to a brothel in King’s Landing. There, they have a torrid and incestuous sexual encounter, but without reaching completion. However, back at Dragonstone, Rhaenyra ends up losing her virginity to the gentleman Criston Cole (Fabien Frankel), a member of the king’s personal guard, with whom had already flirted in previous episodes…and that, as a Royal Guard, must be celibate.

That is Rhaenyra first made out with her uncle in a brothel, and then had his first sexual relations with someone who had taken a vow of chastity. As if this were not enough, the chapter also showed another awkward sex scenein this case of King Viserys (Paddy Considine) with his young wife, Alicent Hightower (Emily Carey), who doesn’t enjoy sleeping with the monarch at all.

But beyond that also disturbing passage, and despite the fact that incest was a more or less common custom among the Targaryens to preserve his lineage pure and of the so-called dragon blood, the sexual encounter between aunt and nephew has set the networks on fire, with angry reactions among followers of the House of the Dragon.

The hottest scene in the universe“, assures a Twitter user. “In the brothel? Demon, in the brothel???”, another fan of the series publishes in disbelief. “Why would he take her there? That shit is weird.” asks a third.

And it is that, although it is with Criston Cole with whom he loses his virginity, most of the fandom has focused more on his meeting with his uncle Daemon, whose interpreter, Matt Smith, already anticipated that The House of the Dragon had too many sex scenes. “‘Your daughter was seen in a brothel, my king’. ‘So what’ … ‘With her uncle'”, an Internet user posted, reproducing the subsequent conversation in which they reported to Viserys.

“My God, he’s literally her uncle. I’m getting Cersei and Jamie’s PTSD“complained a tweeter, remembering another incestuous Game of Thrones relationship. “This episode of House of the Dragon blew my mind, Rhaenyra how always divine, gorgeous, getting her way, but Daemon? That man has everything more than planned …”, assures another forceful.

However, there were also those who focused more on the moment of their deflowering. “Rhae gets Criston Cole to finish Daemon’s job lol.” writes a Twitter user, referring to his subsequent encounter with the Royal Guard. “I would also put my mouth on Criston’s”, assures convinced a fan.

“Rhaenyra in the last chapter of The House of the Dragon I was like this”, publishes an Internet user, accompanying his tweet with a gif in which the character of Monica (Friends) gets into a fridge. “Daemon warmed up but Cole was the one who ate. It happens in life, it happens in The House of the Dragon”sentence another sarcastically.
