  1. The dragonbinder seems real to me. Dany noted that in old Valyria dragons were controlled by "binding spells and sorcerous horns" while she controlled Drogon through words and a whip. GRRM let us believe that Euron probably got this horn from Qarth warlocks and became master of the horn using his blood. Once the horn is sound, dragons will come to the master not the blower. Euron may monitor Victarion's actions by warging into the dusty woman. If dragons are critical for Euron, then this plan is fairly risky as Victarion is stupid and has a festered wound, he may never get a chance to reach the dragons. Anyway, Moqorro interfered. Unlike Melisandre, this red priest had very accurate predictions. He powered Victarion and his ironmen through the long voyage, beat the Volantene fleet to reach Meereen first, and joined the battle at the right time. However, there is really no need for Moqorro to continue serving Victarion faithfully after this. Moqorro was a man of monstrous size, he looked "burned" and "charred" already. Actually there is no better man than himself to sound the horn. In the Victarion chapter from TWOW, Victarion gathered three thrall in queue to blow the horn. He did not trust Moqorro and would not let him take the horn. When Moqorro offered to bleed him, Victarion says the dusky woman will do it. Now, this is getting really interesting. What will happen after this? The Yunkai army is smashed and Battle of Meereen looks like over. Volantis has sent a large fleet, Dany's men need to take them over. Victarion's purpose (sending iron fleet and dragonbinder to Dany) is probably fulfilled, and he is likely to die. Moqorro and Euron will have a fight over the horn and dragons. Tyrion is hinted to ride the white dragon, he is around and Moqorro knows him. How will GRRM link all these events together? Any ideas? What will happen when the dragon horn is sound?

    What will happen when the dragon horn is sound?

    Personally I believe Euron will win a dragon (Rhaegal) in the end. To have another dance of dragons, GRRM needs to have the three dragons separated. Are you sure the horn blower at kingsmoot is Euron's son? There is no mentioning of it. I agree the blood smearing is ridiculous. The notion is raised by Moqorro, who could betray Victarion at any time. Moqorro does not want the horn to be sound at all, Dany is not around, nothing good can happen. The blood smearing is an opportunity for Moqorro to kill Victarion. Victarion may sense the danger and let dusky woman blood him, and the opportunity is passed to dusky woman.

    The battle of blood

    From the forsaken chapter, it looks like Euron will smash Redwyne and Hightower fleets. Euron's captains are fully aware that Hightower fleet will try to "catch them in the rear". GRRM has raised Euron to be on of the archvillian in the series, he would at least sack Oldtown to demonstrate his power.

    Manderly Wrote the Pink Letter

    If you are a great northern conspiracy believer, then you need to rule out Ramsay and Stannis as the pink letter author. Boltons are doomed in Winterfell, all other northern lords are plotted against them, it's just a matter of when. By insulting Freys openly, Wyman Manderly sent out a clear signal that they are ready, at least his part in GNC is done and he is not afraid of death. Roose sensed this and he was scared. He sent Manderly away along with Freys and Ramsay. He hoped Manderly is the only schemer but he was wrong. I am not worried about Mance's capture at all. He is a great fighter, very intelligent and charming. He knows Winterfell well, he may have plotted with Manderly and/or Umber together. Even if the worst happens, he can glamor himself or hid in crypts. It's very unlikely that Ramsay captured him and tortured all the information out of him. Some details in the pink letter are totally unrelated to Theon and Jeyne's escape, such as Val and Mance's son. Mance and Mel may have some other agenda in Winterfell. They may have known each other long time ago, maybe Mel is the wood witch that helped Mance before. It's a high treason to cheat Stannis, who Mel still believed in. Why did Mel spend so much effort saving someone just to send him on a mission to win Jon's trust? Something else was going on.
