What Will Happen to Yara Greyjoy?
Out of Euron’s three captives, none seemed to be in for anything but a horrible death when Sunday’s episode started. As "The Queen’s Justice" progressed, we were mostly proven right as Tyene was poisoned, and Ellaria suffered a fate much worse than death.
But we can find comfort in the fact that even if she appeared to have been mistreated, Yara Greyjoy was still alive when she was made to leave the Throne Room with her psycho uncle.
Here are some theories about what may happen to the Ironborn heiress:
She Manages to Escape
For the Greyjoys, even desperate situations can turn out not to be as hopeless as they seem. If Theon could escape from Ramsay after having been mentally and physically broken, then a strong-willed person like Yara being able to do the same isn’t out of the realm of possibility.
It seems unlikely though that she would be able to do this without help, but one can sometimes find allies in unexpected manners.
Let’s remember that a good part of Euron’s crew are men who have been forced to serve him.Their tongues have been cut off, and considering that torture isn’t an effective way to inspire respect, we can imagine that one of Euron’s pirates could free Yara and escape with her at the same time. Not that being betrayed a second time would teach Euron humility, but it would still be nice to see that.
She is Forced to Serve Euron
When she was made to walk to the Red Keep along with her Dornish allies, Yara didn’t say a word. As we know, she is able to deliver relevant and burning one-liners, but she remained silent and it may not be a choice on her part.
As unpleasant as it is to imagine, it’s very possible that she already had her tongue cut off. A fate shared by many of the men who served under her orders (remember Theon’s triggering right before he jumped). Euron wants only silent slaves and he may want to use her as one.
She is Killed
This is the most pessimistic option but it’s Game of Thrones, and death is to be expected even for the best.
Yara’s destiny is unfortunately in the hands of a horrible man and and if she is indeed meant to die, we can only hope that Euron doesn’t have a sense of imagination as twisted as Cersei’s when when it comes to vengeance.
