house of the dragon It may be a series about kings and queens, medieval violence and flying dragons, but George RR Martin’s epic fantasy has also become synonymous with its controversial sex scenes. Like the royal families of old, incest made up for some of the most important relationships in Game of Thrones-a tradition that the prequel series, dragon House, He seems determined to continue.
In episode four, young princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Milly Alcock) and her uncle Prince Daemon (Matt Smith) get hot and heavy in a brothel. Fans back home were shocked by the event (of course), but not everyone found the scene so uncomfortable to watch as we wrapped up on a Sunday night. “Curiously, [Matt Smith and I] they were just kind of mates. So he was quite comfortable,” Milly Alcock told the New York Post. “We had an intimacy coordinator and we worked with her through the rehearsal process and we locked it out months in advance.”
“Clare Kilner, our director, made sure we hadn’t seen any of the brothels until we were shooting,” Alcock continued. “So, that was the first time we walked through the brothel, and he’s leading her through the room with all these other bodies. So, that was pretty shocking. You’re like, ‘This is kind of weird and silly.’ There were extras that we just met doing 69s for 12 hours. It’s pretty kinky. We felt overdressed because everyone else was naked.”
Some fans joined Alcock in downplaying the torrid situation. As viewers almost choke on the sex scenes of Game of thrones between siblings Cersei and Jaime Lannister, or aunt and nephew Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow, many are supporting the taboo affair of Rhaenyra and Daemon. “We were all judging the Lannisters for 8 seasons but now we’re rooting for Rhaenyra and Daemon for 4 episodes,” one Twitter user said. wrote. But where are all my #TeamSerCristonCole chargers? Does anyone expect to see a love at first sight romantic relationship with someone they are not related to on this show?
After her incestuous make-out session with her uncle, Rhaenyra returns home and directs all that pent-up sexual energy to Ser Criston Cole, a knight tasked with standing guard outside her bedrooms. Though hesitant, he finally concedes and takes the young princess’s virginity. However, anyone fighting for the two to break tradition and stay together may have a hard time. Otto Hightower informs the King of Daemon and Rhaenyra’s “docking,” as he nervously calls it, and the prince is banished from the kingdom for the second time in just four episodes. How will things turn out if the court finds out that he actually slept with Criston Cole? Well, for fans of the books who are aware of a certain unnamed spoiler, Rhaenyra’s story ends up going in quite a different direction.

“I fought with [her feelings for Criston] all the time, on the show,” said Milly Alcock The charge. “I think she wants to be seen and ultimately Daemon and Criston Cole are the only two people who really see her. They both see her for different reasons. Daemon has the advantage and Rhaenyra has the advantage with Cole, and that turns her on. a little. I think she really likes him. But I don’t think she would choose him over Daemon, ultimately… I think Daemon is good for her… but whether or not it’s right for her, time will tell. .. I think she understands that there is a feeling here [with Daemon]but she’s not quite sure where it lands, and how to behave with it and navigate it.”
Clearly, fans aren’t sure. how to behave with it and navigate it either. “Daemon did nothing wrong. They should rule together!” another twitter commenter boldly declared. Buckle up boys and girls because this was only episode four of Dragon House. This profane train has just left the station.
