Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • A woman is seen completely nude after a fire burns off her clothes, full frontal nudity (Season 1) However, it is shown from far away and her genitals are covered by a baby dragon, so nothing too graphic is visible.

Violence & Gore

  • At the end of the eighth episode of the fourth season in the series, a man is tumbled to the ground and has all his teeth punched out, with some blood visibly spurting out on the floor. The man then has his eyes gouged out, with a lot of blood coming out as he screams in extreme agony and subsquently, due to the extreme force, his head is crushed into a gory mess, with brain matter scattered everywhere and blood pooling on the ground. This is somewhat comparable to 'Spectre', released one year later after this episode, but this is MUCH gorier. This scene is extremely graphic and is considered the most graphic and gory scene in the whole series. In fact there have been reports of some people getting sick from seeing this

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Towards the end of season three in an episode (commonly referred to as "The Red Wedding"); in what starts as a happy wedding with all parties seemingly fully at peace three major almost universally well liked characters (by other characters and audience alike) are unexpectedly murdered during the after wedding banquet.
