    [twow Spoilers] Arianne II, Part 2

    Are there any theories which says Arianne is not really Doran and Mellario's daughter? The more I re-read Dorne, the more I wonder if Doran truly cares about Arianne. I know such a theory exists about Quentyn because he was the one whom Doran sent on a dangerous mission with insufficient escort. However, if Doran wanted Arianne to be queen or had great ambitions for her, why did he never teach her to be smarter and more adept at game of thrones? This was Dorne - where they gave more respect, power and responsibilities to women. But Arianne seems less trained in politics than Cersei or Catelyn. Tywin and Hoster were also ambitious fathers, too. Doran only actively starts to prepare Arianne for ruling after the Queenmaker plot.

    Do you think much of Aeron's tragedy could have been averted if he told his father about Euron's nightly visits?

    [Spoilers] EP608

    @Bluesnow Jaime still being in love with Cersei is irritating, I keep hoping for something to happen and he finally snaps. But Jaime might have exaggerated his love towards Cersei while talking to Edmure, because Jaime's aim was to break Edmure in any way possible - better to threaten to kill him and his family than actually kill the Tullys and breaking his oath to Catelyn. Jaime tried his best not to take arms with Blackfish (he looks disappointed knowing that Blackfish died fighting). I think Brienne's presence in the castle was also a strong motivation for him avoid the bloodshed - in the books we can know what is going on through his mind, but it is not possible to show it on TV - so they used Jaime's feelings for Brienne. After Edmure lowers his head, we see Jaime looking satisfied - he know he has Edmure, which means he can win Riverrun without taking up arms. tl;dr Show!Jaime still loves Cersei, but he also cared about Brienne and his oath to Catelyn.

    There were a lot of oranges for sale in Braavos - was it a dig at Lemongate?

    No, I made that comment before the details of chapter came out. The three brothers Euron killed are Harlan, Urri and Balon. Aeron's chances of survival are very thin, but his death is not confirmed. But I think he will die, because he fits Dany's vision 'a corpse on the prow of a ship, grey lips smiling sadly'

    Thanks you, Ser. I found this passage interesting: Azor Ahai? Jon foreshadowing? Another person who got drowned and set to make a strong comeback is Tyrion.

    Irrespective of to whom the throne belongs, this is a great observation!

    Probably. There is so much going on KL without Euron's help, anyway. But where is Euron currently sailing?

    So, Euron took Shield Islands, and may soon raid Oldtown too, and he gave it to his vassals. The Redwyne fleet which is the major sea-power of the Crown, is sailing West to capture Euron's minions. Doesn't that mean King's Landing will soon be undefended from an attack by the sea? Looks like Aegon will win the throne first, only to be defeated by Euron.

    Thanks for clarifying, and more thanks for your notes!

    She loves Daario for his looks. Euron is handsome, and fiery. My impression is that Euron knows how to charm people, how to "play" them to get them do what he wants them to do. She will eventually realize what a horror he truly is, but I do not think it is too far-fetched that Dany will marry Euron. She needs ships (Vic may soon die. Vic is the only person anywhere near Dany who could tell what Euron is like. But Vic is a 'kraken' traveling with 'dark/black flame', and Dany will not trust them per Quaithe's warning, failing to see the real kraken she should fear is Euron).

    Well, they do not have priests. He probably thought that the Old Gods are powerless. If many of our theories are wrong (about Euron being a greenseer and Blodoraven's runaway disciple), he would have no idea about the power of Old Gods. His knowledge comes from his travels. Unless he went North of the Wall, or he met the Ghost of the High Heart, he would not know about greenseers. But can't believe him not taking a trip to God's Eye for the curiosity if for nothing else. Or he is working for the Old Gods. But having no Northern Swords in the Iron Throne, and no Old Gods in Euron's throne, maybe a good thing.

    Is Euron after immortality? (He is an evil version of Jack Sparrow, after all)

    I was thinking the same, after reading about the Aeron chapter. We could have discussed magic and dragons and gods and all, instead we had Elia Sand's amorous activities and the flora of Stormlands (not that the latter is not interesting - the cave part was great)

    Burning questions after this chapter - Who should be king, according to what the gods told Aeron? The only remaining king-worthy candidates are Rodrik Harlaw (who did not try his luck in Kingsmoot) and Theon (who was not present). Because Aeron does not say the king's name, even in his own head, makes me think it is Theon. Because Aeron believes Theon to be dead, and to think the Gods suggested Theon's name would make either the Gods to be wrong, or himself to be mad. Being devout and already driven crazy by Euron, Aeron keeps that thought away. Another reason that the 'drowned god' would mutter Theon's name - the Drowned God is one of the First Men gods, before they accepted the faith of Old Gods. It could be actually Bloodraven or Bran (who are both of First Men blood and working with the Old Gods and the Children) who was speaking to Aeron, only Aeron thought it was the Drowned God. We know they are already shouting Theon,Theon to Theon and Asha by the agency of ravens. What are the horn's real powers? It was called Dragonbinder, but the visions suggest that it will call Dragons, Krakens and Sphinxes. I will believe the Kraken bit, because there were Kraken sightings reported by Varys/Qyburn/others. Is there is a connection between Alleras the Sphinx, Euron, and Marwin the maege? Who is the woman with tall shadow? First thoughts - Dany. second thought - Night's Queen. (Who is to say Euron went mad(der) after a chance encounter with an Other, similar to the one Night's King had? What if Euron is the Night's King reborn? Maybe the Others have prophecies too.) Who are the dwarves in the throne room? Kings and queens, it would seem. Cersei, Margaery, Victarion, Aegon, Stannis, maybe Dany too if she is not the woman next to Euron. In Dany's vision, small men raping the woman was the five kings tearing the realm apart, so the copulating betweens male and female dwarves in this vision would imply fights between different kings and queens. Why is Euron collecting Priests? He seems to have no respect for any religion. His association with FM might suggest he is cooperating with them, but this cannot be certain, because the FM claim that all religions fall under Him of Many Faces, because all men must die. You know who does not die naturally? the Others. Maybe HoBaW is taking over all religions via Euron, or maybe they are against him. Maybe the Alchemist is in Citadel because he learned about Euron's plans and needed to take action. Why is the Valyrian Steel armor important? Maybe he is just showing off, maybe it has magical powers, maybe Valyrian steel armor will protect him from dragonfire should the need arise.
