A blink and you miss it clip in a House of the Dragon behind the scenes promo has hinted that Prince Daemon Targaryen may be bisexual.
House of the Dragon episode 6 SPOILERS ahead.
House of the Dragon is a prequel to Game of Thrones and is based on parts of the novel Fire & Blood by George R. R. Martin. Though only six episodes of HOTD have aired, there has been no suggestion that Targaryen is bisexual in the series, nor in the book the show is based on.
In fact, in the most recent episode, Targaryen was shown brutally killing his wife Rhea Royce after approaching her while she was riding a horse.
However, during a recent House of the Dragon deleted clip as part of a behind-the-scenes promo, Targaryen can be seen cuddling another man in the background for a split second. The affectionate moment takes place at the 2:32 minute mark, you can watch the footage and view the screen grab below.

However, the cuddling between the two men never made it to air, and Targaryen is only shown looking affectionately at the other man, which can be seen below.
While the new season has received critical acclaim, there appear to be some problems behind the scenes with a second executive producer announcing their exit ahead of season two.
As reported by Deadline, HOTD EP Jocelyn Diaz won’t be returning for season two. According to sources, the EP had a one-year deal that came with an option for a second, which is not being picked up.
Interestingly, Diaz was said to be continuing as an executive producer for season two at the time of Sapochnik’s notable exit, although this now won’t be the case.
Diaz’s departure follows the seismic exit of Miguel Sapochnik, who stepped down after acting as co-showrunner for season one. House of the Dragon co-creator and executive producer Ryan Condal will now act as sole showrunner for season two, working closely with George R.R. Martin.
