Game of Thrones fans have long thought that the book’s “song of ice and fire” would be about Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen – even if it’d mean Jon marrying the woman who is potentially his aunt.
But after last night’s Battle of The Bastards, all that has changed.
Y’see a possible new suitor for Dany has emerged, and she most definitely doesn’t carry the whole potential incest baggage.
Yara Greyjoy headed for Mereen with Theon and while she couldn’t offer Dany Euron’s, errr, big gift, sparks flew during her negotiations with the Mother of Dragons.
Dany joked that Yara’s offer wouldn’t come with a demand for marriage, and Yara replied in the most intriguing and sassy way.

It wasn’t long before Brienne and Tormund (this series’ other big will-they-won’t-they) became yesterday’s news.
I hope I’m not the only person hoping for a lesbian love affair between Dany and Yara. That was chemistry. #GameofThrones
