Romance between Daenerys’ aide Missandei and army commander Grey Worm has been brewing for quite a while now in Game of Thrones, ever since he spotted her bathing in a river.
Born into the the Unsullied, which Dany “liberated” from the Masters of Astapor, Grey Worm was castrated like all the other soldiers in the army in order to make them more efficient soldiers, undistracted by love or sex.
Be that as it may, he clearly desires Missandei and it seems the feeling is mutual.
According to Watchers on the Wall, their relationship “will go much further than in previous seasons” in season 7, with a “sex scene in the works”.
Their sub-plot really had to come to a climax (literally) sooner or later, with there being only 14 episodes of the show left.
Grey Worm is expected to lead the Unsullied in a siege on the Lannister stronghold of Casterly Rock in the next seven - Daenerys’ forces taking on those of Jaime and Bronn.
The battle isn’t expected to be on the scale of the Battle of the Basrards, but did take a month to film and involve 500 extras and 100 horses.
Game of Thrones returns on HBO in the US and Sky Atlantic in the UK in summer 2017.
