There’s a new romance that Game of Thrones fans are really excited about. Yes, during the Battle of the Bastards episode, we had a few scenes in Meereen as the Iron Fleet reached the great city with Yara and Theon Greyjoy looking to strike a deal with the Mother of Dragons.
During the sequence, Daenerys found it difficult to take her eyes off Yara after the pair found humour in the fact that they both have murderous, terrible fathers (The Mad King and Balon Greyjoy).
However, the flirtations were not just the stuff of fanboy fantasy as Emilia Clarke revealed she was aware of the chemistry when they were filming the scene.
“There’s mild flirtation, which is exciting to say the least,” she remarked in a behind-the-scenes video. “I mean, get rid of Daario bring on the ladies.”
Game of Thrones has never shied away from depicting gay and lesbian sex but they have never been a central part of a storyline. However, we’re not so sure it’ll happen because, as Clarke said herself, it was more to do with establishing Yara as another “badass chick in the place!”
Even if the Yara-Daenerys romance doesn’t happen, we’re excited to see a Mother of Dragons/Iron Fleet axis of power in Meereen. Watch the behind-the-scenes video below:
