Game of Thrones (major spoilers ahead) has featured a number of gay characters in the past, but these have been mainly male relationships with doomed romances.

However, the show recently re-introduced Yara Greyjoy (Gemma Whelan), who holds a claim to the throne of the Iron Islands.

Greyjoy was quick to establish her interest in women in a passionate scene earlier this month.

Since it’s my last night ashore for a long while, I’m gonna go f**k the tits off this one.”


However, fans are hopeful that a big romance could be on the cards for Greyjoy, after the character’s sizzling introduction to Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).

In the scene, the two prospective Queens flirt as they form an alliance, while discussing a rather vulgar marriage proposal from Greyjoy’s uncle.

Daenerys quips: “And I imagine your offer is free of any marriage demands?”

Yara shoots back: “I never demand… but I’m up for anything, really”.


A major romance between the pair seems unlikely given how Daenerys’ whole narrative has been about her being entirely independent, but the prospect of the romance is not too far-fetched given elements of the original novels.

In the books, Daenerys Targaryen is explicitly portrayed as bisexual, having intimate flings with her handmaidens as well as male romances.


Reacting to the latest episode, Whelan had this to say

There’s mild flirtation, which is exciting to say the least. I mean, get rid of Daario bring on the ladies.”
