After all that build up and anticipation, the official Game of Thrones Season 7 trailer is officially here. With so much action to see in the short clip, your mind might already be blown. But it's not all war and gloom and death, you guys. Did you catch that lip lock? Who are the women kissing in the Game of Thrones trailer? It appears to be Ellaria, played by Indira Varma, and Yara Greyjoy, played by Gemma Whelan. It's tough to get more than just a glimpse of the two kissing, but here's a little bit about what we already know.
Ellaria is the widowed wife to late Oberyn Martell and mother of four Sand Snakes. She's also referred to as worshiping a Lysene love goddess, and was also described by Oberyn as being sexually adventurous and bisexual, but both Oberyn and Ellaria took pleasure in bringing other people to their bedroom. Greyjoy on the other hand is a queer pirate warrior whose sexuality has been quite known throughout the seasons from the time we saw her selecting a prostitute to canoodle with. But what led to this kiss, and does Greyjoy know her kiss could mean death? Also, does this mean Yara no longer has eyes for Dany? With these questions left dangling until the premiere, it's a tough one to call.
As you probably guessed, this kissing scene has caused quite a ruckus on social media.

Is anyone low-key loving this, though?
With only seven episodes in the new season that returns on July 16, fans could see this romance trickle in much faster than they anticipate. But what this means for Yara is the question that we're all asking ourselves.
