If you STILL haven't seen 'Battle of the Bastards' then I am seriously running out of patience with you if I'm perfectly honest. But because I'm a nice guy, I'll warn you anyway... this article contains mild spoilers for the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones season six.
Obviously, with the episode named after them, the focus of the episode was of course Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton. And we don't blame anyone for forgetting what we saw just before it all unfolded outside Winterfell.
Shockingly, I'm not talking about Daenarys absolutely owning the masters and riding her dragons into battle to show them just how powerful she actually is - which was a sensational scene, even though I was disappointed how posh Emilia Clarke delivered the line 'Drakarys', but that's my problem, not hers.
What we're actually talking about is the sexual tension between Daenarys Targaryen and Yara Greyjoy. Did anyone else catch it? It was definitely there, I'm not just making it up, I swear.
If you did miss it, watch the scene again, when Yara and Theon arrive at Meereen to plead with Daenarys for an allegiance. There's definitely a look and a glance that weren't about ships and Westeros at all.
And, incredibly, Clarke has poured fire on the same-sex relationship flames by saying on a behind-the-scenes HBO video:
"There's mild flirtation, which is exciting to say the least. I mean, get rid of Daario, bring on the ladies."
Wait, are Daenerys and Yara flirting?! #GoTAtlantichttps://t.co/BV3iBccjv8

It's not like we haven't seen gay sex on Game of Thrones before but this would be the first time the show has put central characters in that position.
It would also put the cat among the pigeons when it comes to Game of Thrones romances. Would you rather see Brienne and Tormund get it on or Daenarys and Yara?
You can watch Game of Thrones on HBO on Sunday at 9pm (US time).
