Emilia Clarke Wants Daenerys to Have a Lesbian Relationship on 'Game of Thrones'

"Bring on the ladies."

If you thought there were some sparks flying between Dany and Yara on the latest episode of (opens in new tab) Game of Thrones, you weren't the only one. Ever since the two met in Meereen—which is no longer under siege thanks to some rather useful dragons—fans have been debating whether or not Dany and Yara could become the show's next power couple.
