Now here’s a spoiler for the Game of Thrones fans. Ever since season 7 aired, it has been full of gut-wrenching twists and turns.
In the first episode of Game of Thrones season 7, ‘Dragonstone’, we saw Euron Greyjoy making it to the King’s Landing with the intention of marrying Queen Cersei. But as she politely turned down his offer, the pirate king promised he would bring back a gift. Wonder what could it be?
While some theories suggested Euron would gift a dragon catcher to defeat Daenerys even before she attacks Westeros. But the story seems a little different as Yara Greyjoy (Gemma Whelan) and Ellaria Sands (who are trustworthy allies of the Daenerys Targaryen) get attacked by Greyjoy’s murderous uncle Euron (Pilou Asbæk).
The action-packed sea battle is so intense that “it was just extraordinary to film,” exclaimed Gemma Whelan. The battle concludes with Theon Greyjoy’s inner ‘Reek’ comes out when Yara gets seized by their blood-thirsty uncle. Instead of helping his sister, Theon jumps off the ship. Now Yara Greyjoy and Ellaria Sands are held by Euron Greyjoy. So if the pirate king hands them over to Cersei, it will be easy for her to track down the master plan of Daenerys. Cersei can’t ask for a better gift.
She continued, “We think Yara has managed to get Theon back, they had all these scenes of solidarity and comradery in season 6. It seems like he’s back, then there’s that wavering faltering moment that Aflie plays so beautifully. Yara’s just willing him, ‘no, no, stay with me.’ It’s just so heartbreaking!”
The episode 3 titled as ‘The Queen’s Justice’ is set to air on July 30.
