‘I’ll never forgive House of the Dragon for making me watch…’: Game of Thrones fans feel scarred for life after watching Matt Smith’s brothel scene in House of the Dragon

HBO’s latest attempt, Dragon Housecreated by George R. R Martin and Ryan J. Condal and based on Fire & Blood, a novel by Martin, was finally created. Fans who were anxiously counting the days until the release of the first episode are now stunned beyond comprehension. To say that the show is wildly grotesque and up to the game of thrones the name is an understatement.

However, what adds an icing on the cake is the much-discussed and controversial scene featuring Prince Daemon in a brothel. There’s a reason fans can’t seem to stop talking about it.

In the first episode, fans witnessed a risque scene featuring Matt Smith as Daemon Targaryen. In the much-discussed salacious sequence, Prince Daemon was seen involved in Mysaria by Sonoya Mizuno. The game of thrones prequel dives very quickly into one of the franchise’s most notable hallmarks – sexual depravity. After the sequence, the audience witnessed another scene – namely the brothel scene – which involved a rather awkward disturbance; Daemon was seen ending the mouth-watering deal he had arranged for the men of King’s Watch, with a speech. Everyone stopped in the middle of the act, to listen awkwardly to the Prince.

Fans were stunned by such scenes. However, that shouldn’t be a surprise. The franchise is known for its unfiltered, shameless, and controversial themes. Apart from the sexual scenes, the first episode wasted no time in depicting mindless violence and gore. Another sequence that was the subject of controversy on the internet involved a bloody and sinister childbirth scene.

It’s obvious that the prequel doesn’t want to stray away from the aspects that the original series became famous for.

To say fans were stunned wouldn’t do justice to their overwhelming reaction on Twitter. Some considered the scene too embarrassing, while others, in a humorous tone, commented that it would not be a game of thrones prequel if it didn’t include detailed sex scenes. However, most seemed a little tired of the trope. Here’s what fans had to say about the “controversial” scenes:

As fans try to shake those graphic images out of their minds, the prequel’s release continues to make a lot of headlines. It is not a shock to see such a vast and overwhelming reception for Dragon House; after all, it was marketed as the biggest series of the year. The ensuing episodes will prove whether or not the spin-off was worth the effort.

The first episode of Dragon House is now streaming on HBO Max with the second episode set to premiere on August 28, 2022.
