Get ready Game of Thrones fans: The Mother of Dragons is all for a lesbian hookup between Yara and Daenerys too.
According to The Huffington Post, actress Emilia Clarke touched on the moment in last Sunday’s episode with an awesome remark. “There’s like a little, ‘Oh, there’s another badass chick in the place! OK!'” She added, “There’s mild flirtation, which is exciting to say the least. I mean, get rid of Daario [Naharis], and bring on the ladies. Why not?”
And why not indeed!
As if you could forget the moment in the show, Yara (Gemma Whelan) arrived in Meereen in Episode 9 to offer Dany an alliance between the Ironborn if Dany could help Yara secure her rightful place as ruler of its people. But that wasn’t the best part of the moment. The best part was that Yara was bringing on the heavy-handed flirting with Daenerys, and Daenerys didn’t hate it. At all.
“And I imagine your offer is free of any marriage demands?” Daenerys asked Yara in the episode, when Yara told her that her uncle planned to marry Daenerys.
“I never demand,” Yara responded, “but I’m up for anything really.”
In fact, Daenerys was more than amused by Yara, making fans think that these two badass chicks might become good friends at least, but hopefully a little something more. The show could use a good lesbian relationship, in my opinion.

The Game of Thrones Season 9 finale airs this Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO.
