House of the Dragon viewers are being warned over the ‘disturbing’ scenes in the latest episode, ‘King of the Narrow Sea’

People are taking to Twitter to discuss the Game of Thrones spinoff due to its inappropriate love scene between Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Milly Alcock) and her uncle Daemon (Matt Smith).

In the House of the Dragon episode, the young Targaryen secretly left the palace with a cloaked figure (her uncle). After listening to jesters and stealing food, the pair headed to one of Daemon’s favourite haunts and the tension between the two reached its peak.

To viewers’ shock, the two kissed and removed each other’s clothing. However, the pair did not go all the way, but this did not make it any better for viewers.

One tweeted: “That scene from HOTD last night was way more disturbing to me than anything Thrones ever had.”

Ummm that House of the Dragon episode last night made my head hurt,” one wrote. “Between the inc**t, and them basically having s** and marrying kids. They were unhinged.”

Another added: “House of the Dragon is some weird s***. Inc**t and Intrafamily relationships. I ain’t watching this s*** no more.”

“Okay you House of the Dragon ppl go waaaay too hard for incest,” one viewer tweeted. “This s*** is making me physically uncomfortable.”

Someone else wrote: “Big fan of Games of Thrones and House of the Dragon but extremely uncomfortable with the inc**t and p***dophilia elements.”

While one tweeted: “Another 10/10 episode..this one was kinda disturbing and weird though.”

Another said: “Todays Episode of HOTD was way too dark, way too cringe way too disturbing…But it was good at the same time…”

Many viewers sent a warning out to fellow fans not to watch the episode with their parents over the raunchy scenes.

Writing on Twitter, they said: “If you’re watching this episode of House of the Dragon with your parents then I’m so sorry.”

Another added: “Thoughts and prayers to everyone who’s watching this episode of House of the Dragon with their parents. I know y’all in hell right now.”

While one tweeted: “Made the mistake of watching House of the Dragon with my parents.”

One clued-up fan declared: “I’m not watching this new House of the Dragon episode with my parents. I am NOT watching THAT scene with them I would rather die.”

Others took to the platform and defended the plot, with one penning: “They are Targaryens. What did y’all expect? Of course there was going to be inc**t.”

However, it wasn’t the only raunchy scene that drew criticism in the latest episode.

King Viserys, played by 49-year-old Paddy Considine, and his wife Alicent Hightower, played by 19-year-old Emily Carey, are also seen getting intimate.

One person responded: “The Alicent and Viserys s** scene is the most disturbing thing I’ve seen thus far.”
