[Warning: Spoilers for HBO’s “House of the Dragon” Episode 9, “The Green Council,” ahead.]
Brothels get nothing on a foot fetish.
Fans were left sobbing during a moment in “House of the Dragon” on Sunday that the episode director even called it a “really dirty scene.”
While providing gossip that could aid Queen Aliscent’s end result – her son Aegon being placed on the Iron Throne in a hostile takeover of Westeros – Larese demands something in return while the couple meet in her bedroom.
But Queen Aliscent seems to have lent a helping hand by putting her feet up.
As Larys Strong, played by Matthew Needham, begins pouring tea, Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke) begins to take off her shoes and socks and places her bare feet on the coffee table. Then Larize tells her of a network of spies in the Red Cape—led by the “white worm” Mesaria and aided by one of her servants in an operation her father Otto Heator knows—gazing at her dogs.
But it doesn’t stop there. Larez offers to take out some spies, but expects money to be paid for his loyalty. That’s when the Queen raises her feet on a chair, where he begins to delight himself as he stares at her hooves.
The uncomfortable situation didn’t seem to be the first, either. Lares – nicknamed clubfoot because of his birth defect – proclaimed himself a longtime ally of Aliscent, and while he was often the one giving the Queen information, they seem to have gone through this pagan routine before as a reward for him. gossip. At least now, her husband, King Viserys I Targaryen (Paddy Considine), is dead.
Claire Kellner, who directed Episode 9, described it to Entertainment Weekly as “looking at her feet and then masturbating, basically.”
While intimacy coordinators were hired for many of the show’s other sex scenes, Kellner said the foot fetish scene
“That was an interesting scene actually,” she said. It’s funny how you get intimate coordinators [for] All that nudity, but they don’t even think about it for this.”
“It’s very intrusive and oppressive,” she added. “It’s a really dirty scene.”
Fans seemed to agree with a lot on Twitter describing it as “disgusting” and expressing shock and disgust at the “dirty” moment – a feat given the violence, blood, and incest that were repeated on the show.
“I can’t believe Larrys killed his family because of the pictures of their feet,” One fan wrote, Referring to Episode VI when Larrys is ordered to kill his father, Lionel Strong, and his brother, Harwin Strong.
“This is how Aliscent would actually take off her shoes and socks without Larryse having to say anything. Like she did before??!” Another meditation.
“Larys so disgusting what the hell am I watching?” Someone else added.
“Are you telling me that Aliscent was feeding Lord Larrys a foot fetish for his service????” A fan wrote. “And letting his J-K off in front of her??? I thought this show couldn’t get any worse.”
“I’m sorry I wasn’t ready for Larys’ Alicent’s Onlyfans live show,” added another.
“Alicent Hightower Selling Feet Photos for Information to Larys Strong Wasn’t On My Bingo Card for Tonight’s Episode,” Another said.
Previously, Millie Alcock, 22, spoke with The Post about filming “wicked” incest scenes with actor Matt Smith, 39.
“No, strange. [Matt Smith and I] They were just companions. “It was very comfortable,” Alcock said. “We had an intimate coordinator, and we worked with her during the training process and we turned her off months ago.”
Alcock said the brothel scene, though, was really “shocking.”
“You’re like, this is kind of weird and ridiculous,” Alcock said. “There were extra people we just met who were like them, 69 for 12 hours. It’s pretty off-putting. We felt overdressed because everyone was naked.”
