The first Game of Thrones spoiler of the season is here. So stop reading now if you aren't in the mood for hot Westeros gossip.
Watchers on the Wall reports that the HBO drama filmed scenes this week that centered around Theon (Alfie Allen) and Yara (Gemma Whelan) in a sea battle. Seeing as the last season ended with the siblings sailing off with Daenerys' (Emilia Headey) fleet to wage war on Westeros, this isn't exactly breaking news. However, the website also claims that the Greyjoys' uncle Euron (Pilou Asbaek) will catch up to the duo and capture one of them.
This is far from the only big move Euron will allegedly make this season. As predicted, Euron and Cersei (Lena Headey) will be teaming up to take on their common foes. And since Euron had hoped to marry the Daenerys before she teamed up with Theon and Yara, don't be surprised if he tries to strike a similar deal with the newly crowned Queen of Westeros.
We can only imagine Cersei's reaction would look something like this:
In happier news, the website also reports that Euron will kill one of the Sand Snakes this year. Will it be Obara (Keisha Castle-Hughes), Nymeria (Jessica Henwick) or Tyene (Rosabell Laurenti Sellers)? At this point... Does it matter? Dorne has become such a disappointment in the Thrones world, we're just ready to be done with it and move on.
Granted, these are only rumors at this point. But over the years, Watchers on the Wall has established itself as a reliable source for Thrones spoilers, reporting many of last season's plot points long before they aired. So while "words are wind" and all of that, we wouldn't brush these off as a mummer's farce just yet.
Game of Thrones will return Summer 2017.
