3. Sexy Trouble on the High Seas

The last we saw of Theon (Alfie Allen) and Yara (Gemma Whalen), they were joining up with Daenerys and spurning their uncle after losing an Iron Islands election. Although to be fair, it felt as if the election was rigged by the patriarchy. Or the Bravussians. Never mind. The only hint of them we see in this trailer are these gloomy sequences that suggest bad things are happening, most likely at the hands of their dearest uncle. That is, not before Yara gets intimate with Dornish usurper/badass Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma).

This bliss does not appear to last long, as Theon’s look of concern might suggest.

And then there’s this…

This might not end well for Balon Greyjoy’s remaining children. But at least they had good absolutely horrible, atrociously parented, salt water soaked, torture-filled lives. Though as we see below, someone falls into the water, the universal sign for surviving a fiery battle on the high seas.
