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 Hmm, interesting. My first thought reading these notes was that Aeron thought he should be King himself 2 hours ago, ServantOnIce said: So the one thing that gives me hope for Captain Vic Greyjoy is that Euron in all his wisdom doesn't know about Moqorro and how Moqorro has deciphered the Dragon Horn. Euron already had worked a spell so that Vic would blow it and die, while Euron controlled the dragons. Not anymore . ... Vic is going to change the game. It now makes a lot more sense IMO that the Red Priests would help Victarion, and perhaps are not just using him as a means to an end. He is targeting religion, including theirs, so he must be stopped. I definitely think he is connected strongly with the Others 1 hour ago, sifth said: This is a great chapter. I wish it was in ADWD's though. It seems perfectly set up as well, from the ending of the Tyrion chapter in which Moqorro tells Tyrion, Dany's greatest enemy is " A tall and twisted thing with one black eye and ten long arms, sailing on a sea of blood". I hope this puts to rest at last the argument that this tall and twisted thing... Was not Euron. For some reason there was a belief among some that this meant Victarion which really doesn't fit.
