A new power couple could be on the cards in Game of Thrones

Love is in the air of Westeros. Well that, and the usual forecast of fire, blood and war.

If you're yet to watch the rollicking adventures of episode nine, Battle of the Bastards, we urge you to exercise some patience and desist from reading the following flirt-heavy story.

Signs of love began to blossom amidst the flames of Mereen, where Theon and Yara Greyjoy managed to execute some amazing pirating skills to sneak their entire fleet of boats into harbour while Daenerys set about burning down an entirely different set of ships.

Upon gaining an audience with Dany, Theon and Yara begin discussing the intentions of their elder brother, Euron Greyjoy:

Theon: "The Iron fleet isn't all [Euron's] bringing, he also wants to give you..."

Yara: "His' big cock', I think he said. Euron's offer is also an offer of marriage, see, you won't get one without the other."

Is it hot in here, or did someone let a dragon in?

The exchange, bolstered by some spark-filled glances and pulse raising handshakes, could be the beginnings of an alternative partnership between Targaryen and Greyjoy: Daenerys could obtain the fleet she so desperately needs without having to tie herself to a man with less than wholesome intentions, preferring Yara - a woman with whom she has a great deal more in common with.

However, as with most relationships in the world of Ice and Fire, we're not pinning any long-term hopes on this romance. If this show has taught us anything, it's that George R R Martin loves to stick a sword in anything we're looking forward to.
