    33 Sexually Charged Reactions To Harwin Strong On "House Of The Dragon" That Will Make You Laugh

    "You know House of the Dragon’s screenwriting was effectively done when you have a huge crush on Ser Harwin Strong who has less than 2 mins of screen time."

    If you were one of the millions who tuned in for House of the Dragon Episode 5, "We Light the Way," then I probably don't need to explain to you how truly wild it was.

    For those of you who either haven't caught up (highly recommend you do) or blacked out after all the D-R-A-M-A, here's a little refresher...

    Note: Before we get going here, there are spoilers ahead, so if you haven't caught up with Episode 5 yet...get on that...STAT!

    So, this week's HoTD was a big one. Viserys and Rhaenyra traveled to Castle Driftmark, where a mostly agreeable union of Rhaenyra and Lord Corlys Velaryon's son Laenor (who, by the by, is also Rhaenyra's cousin) was made.

    As Viserys and Corlys worked out the details of their children's wedding arrangement, Rhaenyra and Laenor were busy making an agreement of their own — to be cool with each other hooking up with their respective paramours.

    Back at King's Landing, the scene was then set for Rhaenyra and Laenor's grand wedding.

    The Great Hall filled with guests, Rhaenyra and Viserys sitting at the head table greeting the Velaryons.

    But, given the Game of Thrones-verse's history with weddings, obviously, this was never going to go down well.

    A wedding in Westeros is never a good sign #HouseOfTheDragon


    Aside from the usual Targaryen family drama, Laenor's lover, Joffrey Lonmouth, figured out that Rhaenyra's side piece was Ser Criston Cole.

    Joffrey speaking to Laenor

    So in an attempt to blackmail/threaten Ser Criston Cole (to what end, I don't know), Joffrey basically told Criston that he knew about him and Rhaenyra. He then said they should kinda, like, watch out for each other.

    Joffrey telling Ser Criston "we are both deeply invested in this union"

    Criston Cole did NOT like this.

    And it didn't take long before he snapped, brutalized the heck out of Joffrey, and ultimately killed him. Suffice to say, this caused a ton of chaos in the Great Hall.

    The crowd going wild in the great hall

    Rhaenyra, caught in the middle of the madness, found herself also in danger.

    Rhaenyra stuck in the crowd

    While Rhaenyra's father, Viserys, literally stood there and did nothing, his Hand, Lord Lyonel Strong, quickly called his own son, Ser Harwin Strong, into action. (BTW, Ser Harwin's nickname is "Breakbones," if that tells you anything about him.)

    And like the hero he is, Harwin swooped into the crowd, tossed Rhaenyra over his shoulder, and saved her.

    Although it was a brief moment, fans REALLY fixated on Ser Harwin's moves and had some highly visceral reactions:
