HOUSE of the Dragon viewers have been left ‘grossed out’ da scene scioccanti di spose bambine.
Il Game of Thrones prequel series began last week, with episodes dropping on a Sunday in the US and on Monday in the UK.
The first episode saw King Viserys Targaryen lose his wife Queen Aemma in a horrifying child birth scene.
Episode two is set six months later, and the King is advised to remarry and he wants to pick Alicent Hightower (Emily Carey).
tuttavia, the King is urged to consider tying the knot with Laena, the 12-year-old daughter of Lord Corlys.
As if her young age wasn’t inappropriate enough, she also happens to be his niece.
One scene saw the pair discussing their potential marriage while out on a walk, with the 12-year-old telling him: “I would give you many children.”
tuttavia, the scenes creeped out some Casa del Drago viewers watching at home in the US.
Uno ha scritto su Twitter: “Not only are the pimping out a child, they are pimping her child to her uncle.”
Un altro twittato: “I’m watching #HouseoftheDragon and they’re talking child brides… related child brides. Gross.”

per fortuna, the King decided to choose Alicent, but it’s a decision that leaves his daughter Princess Rhaenyra (Milly Alcock) furioso.
Before the second episode had even aired in the US, the series was renewed for a second season by HBO.
