House of the Dragon Episode 4

There are some distinct differences between this week's episode and last week's, but it is decidedly Horny in that old-school Game of Thrones way

For one thing, the sex actually contributes to the story, rather than serving as titillating window dressing for all the boring talk of negotiations and power struggles.

Its players have something to say about each roll in the hay we see this episode - some taboo, some hardly consensual. There are ripple effects throughout the realm caused by the sex in the scene.
