Episode 6, ‘The Princess and the Queen’, shows Aegon Targaryen (Ty Tennant) 10 years after the events of the last episode bullying his younger brother Aemond (Leo Ashton).
His concerned mother Alicent Hightower (now played by Olivia Cooke) goes to his bedroom to confront him – and fans were shocked by what she found.
Find out why viewers slammed one scene below…
Aegon is shown m*****bating completely nude, out of a window – and his mother doesn’t bat an eyelid.
Fans were quick to share their disgust at the unexpected scene.
One wrote: “Nah that w**king out the window was wild.”
Another said: “THAT window scene in HOTD was so disgusting like what the f***.”
While a third joked: “Aegon the Window W**ker just doesn’t have the same ring as Aegon the Conqueror.”
“That window scene wasn’t needed,” added a fourth.
Someone else said: “Aegon was legit doing the unthinkable out of the window and [his mother] is trying to convince him that he will be king… Raggedy.”
“It’s the fact Alicent didn’t even care that Aegon was m*****bating out the window, he must do that nasty s*** all the time,” another added.
Another wrote: “OOOOO WHHHAT… Out the window? [Alicent’s] kids are f***in weirdoooosss.”
“Can’t believe I just saw David Tennant’s kid w*** in a window in House of the Dragon,” another said, referencing Ty Tennant’s actor father.
‘The Princess and the Queen’ continues to escalate – with a dramatic ending that lays the groundwork for the brutal battles to come in the next episode, ‘Dance of the Dragons’.
With it being set so long after Episode 5, much of the casting has changed, with Emma D’Arcy taking over from Milly Alcock as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Olivia Cooke replacing Emily Carey as Queen Alicent, with a feud between the two having grown over the last 10 years.
The episode began with Rhaenyra giving birth to her third son Joffrey, who – along with his older brothers Jacaerys (Leo Hart) and Lucerys Velaryon (Harvey Sadler) – doesn’t harbour the ‘Valyrian traits’ possessed by his father.
Those in King’s Landing, including Queen Alicent, are aware that Rhaenyra’s three sons are actually fathered by Ser Harwin Strong (Ryan Corr), but King Viserys (Paddy Considine) forbids that it be discussed and rejects the notion.

Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith) is shown to have moved his life, with wife Laena Velaryon (Nanna Blondell) and daughters Baela and Rhaena to Pentos, hoping to avoid the political strife that had plagued him.
Concluding the episode, Ser Harwin and his father, Lyonel Strong (Gavin Spokes), are killed in a fire at Harrenhal organised by Harwin’s brother, Larys (Matthew Needham).
Rhaenyra subsequently packs up her family to move to Dragonstone, realising that they are in grave danger, should they remain at King’s Landing.
In a further fiery twist, Laena Velaryon suffers devastating complications during childbirth, causing her to summon the dragon Vhagar to burn her alive.
