A (Seemingly Quite) Large Mystery Left Unexplained in Game of Thrones; or, What is up with Grey Worm’s Crotch?

The finale of Game of Thrones left many unanswered questions, but the one that has been occupying my thoughts is the obvious and distracting bulge in Grey Worm actor Jacob Anderson’s pants. Quite impressive for a eunuch.

Although it was never revealed if the unsullied were fully “emasculated” (by removal of both penis and testes), that is exactly what happened to Lord Varys, as revealed during a scene when he describes his castration to Tyrion: “With a hooked blade, he sliced me, root and stem…”. There is no reason to believe the slavers who created the Unsullied would have been more gentle.

Perhaps actor Jacob Anderson just has a lot to work with. And perhaps the producers of Game of Thrones should have hired Trinity the Tuck to make sure the cast was properly tucked. Actually, a Game of Thrones/RuPaul’s Drag Race crossover event sounds awesome.

This is, of course, a tongue-in-cheek post, but my slightly prurient affection for Grey Worm is widely shared. After the airing of episode 2 of season 7, in which Missandei and Grey Worm finally hook up, Merriam-Webster announced that the number one search on their website was for the word “eunuch.” Of course, a penis is not required for physical intimacy (ask any lesbian), but it’s fun to imagine all the fans trying to piece together exactly what went down between Grey Worm and Missandei.

I’ll leave you with this unexpected delight from Jacob Anderson’s Instagram (he’s also a singer/songwriter who performs as Raleigh Ritchie), featuring a cameo by Missandei actor Nathalie Emmanuel:
