House of the Dragon viewers are in disbelief at the “dirty” Alicent and Larys foot fetish scene in episode 9

house of the dragon Viewers were captivated by a scene starring Alicent and Larys in the latest episode of the hit HBO series.

The penultimate episode of season one, which aired Sunday (October 16), explored the aftermath of the death of King Viserys (Paddy Considine).

*Spoilers to follow – you have been warned*

Alicent (Olivia Cooke), who mistakenly believed Visery’s last wish was that her son Aegon succeed him as ruler, informs her father Otto (Rhys Ifans). He then jumps into action to prevent Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) from taking her rightful place on the Iron Throne.

Otto wants Rhaenyra killed to prevent a war, leading to a showdown with his daughter. Alicent deposes him as the Hand of the King and later learns from Larys (Matthew Needham) that her father knows about a network of spies working around Alicent at King’s Landing. Otto uses the spies to his advantage.

As Larys speaks, Alicent takes off her shoes and stockings – and the scene ends with him enjoying the sight of her bare feet. The wordless nature of the scene suggests that Alicent exchanged information for similar interactions over a number of years.

News of the scene leaked online earlier this week, with many fans believing the spoiler was fake. However, upon watching the episode, these fans are now reacting to the moment on social media, with many expressing disbelief at the reveal.

“Having Alicent using her feet as payment for Larys isn’t what I expected,” one fan wrote of the scene, which was described as “dirty” by the episode’s director, while another added, “Wasn’t up my bingo card”.

Another fan explained, “I’m still attached to Alicent, using her feet to get info and need to be there while Larys…er, collects the payment.”

“Don’t miss the holy rolling Alicent Hightower trading Larys her feet for information,” one wrote.

Many fans also called out Alicent, who was portrayed as somewhat prudish compared to other characters throughout the series, for what they perceived as hypocrisy.

See more reactions below:

Elsewhere, confused post-broadcast viewers question the episode’s “bizarre” ending. However, the show’s crew seemed to forestall the lukewarm reaction and have explained the motivations behind the divisive moment.

It was also pointed out that the series’ characters, Rhaenyra and Daemon, are the great-grandparents of a rather unexpected person game of Thrones Number.

House of the Dragon continues in the UK on Mondays at 2am on Sky Atlantic before repeating later in the day at 9pm. It can also be viewed NOW.
