Euron's Plan after Oldtown

Recommended Posts

Best speculation ive seen about his path after oldtown is to fly Rhaegal to the Gods Eye.  Where he eventually has his final showdown with daenerys..
And maybe burns down the forest of the isle of faces.

I really like that idea. I'd like to see the Gods Eye in some form or another eventually.

Maegor vs Prince Aegon, Aemond vs Daemon,
its kind of where the dragon duels take place... and that dream of Euron with a forest burning behind him in the foresaken chapter must mean something.

i have nothing to back it up, but if something brings on the Long Night, the burning of the mysterious Weirwood forest island could very well be it. 
its where allegedly the CotF brought down the Hammer of Waters, which has wording very similar to that of the horn of winter, "waking giants from the earth and all that"

euron thinks himself as a god of the apocalyse.... Gods Eye.. Crows eye.
i don´t know obviously this is probably 7th book material we will never get to read, but if feels right.

Yeah, me reading about those battles is what got me interested in seeing the Gods Eye in the main series.

I actually don't think Euron is going to get a dragon. If he does, it won't be the kind of dragon we're talking about and he won't get it in the way you think he will be.

No mention of the theory that the Chekhov’s horn is the horn of Joramun and Euron will find it, causing WallFall? Okay, I’ll be that guy.

We're talking after Oldtown.

He's likely to do that in Oldtown. One reason why is because that's where the horn is located. Another reason why is because he's going to be that guy and do it from the top of the Hightower.

I agree, I just didn’t see this mentioned as a potential consequence of Oldtown from anyone in the thread thus far.

Is he though? sounding the horn in Oldtown? This could put the event as early as half into TWOW. .

 Rather i think he will do so in the Gods Eye. The wording that describes the effects of the Horn of Winter are exactly the same as that of the Hammer of the waters. Waking the giants of the earth = Earthquakes.  Maybe thats exactly what the Children of the Forest did, back in the Dawn age:  Sound the Horn of Winter, to break the world.  

if they did, one of the theories the maesters have is that they did so in the Isle of faces. In a weirwood forest that seems as magical place as we will get in the entire planetos. Maybe it works as a magical amplifier of sorts. 

I think Euron leaves the ironborn behind after he gets Rhaegal and the horn of winter. Disappears from the narrative for a while. And Dany later hears about Rhaegal in the Gods Eye.

So, you're telling me that it's implausible for Euron to sound the horn in Oldtown because it'll mean that it will happen halfway into Winds but it's completely plausible that he will somehow steal Rhaegal (even though Rhaegal is on the other side of the world at the moment), abandon his army and settle in the Gods' Eye halfway into Winds.

If he takes them (it's a big if), Victarion is not going to give Euron the dragons. He's going to keep them for himself and Daenerys. So, how on Earth will Euron take Rhaegal for himself when he will have his hands full in Oldtown.

If Euron goes for the Gods' Eye, it can't happen until Dream. Because I think Winds will be the book where Euron gets the development and the power he needs to really become the menacing, powerful endgame villain in Dream. It is way too soon for him to abandon his army.

Not even Aegon and his sisters rode into battle with only dragons. They had armies to accompany them.

not implausible. Im just saying everyone assumes Euron will sound the horn in oldtown. Why would that bring down the wall on the other side of westeros?.

“Aye, and long before them came the Horned Lord and the brother kings Gendel and Gorne, and in ancient days Joramun, who blew the Horn of Winter and woke giants from the earth
(...)
And Joramun blew the Horn of Winter, and woke giants from the earth.

(...)
The first King-Beyond-the-Wall, according to legend, was Joramun, who claimed to have a horn that would bring down the Wall when it woke “the giants from the earth.” (That the Wall still stands says something of his claim, and perhaps even of his existence.)

 


Joramund already blew the horn once, and the wall is still standing.
So, given that the children already made a World-wide cataclysmic event that shattered the arm of dorne, and flooded the neck, (and perhaps even turned the iron islands into islands if some theories are correct) which also is described as waking the giants of the earth, maybe its because they actually did it in the Gods Eye, with blood sacrifice in a weirwood forest. 
its just a theory, im not claiming its true. It just feels right to me.

As for Rhaegal. Dragons only have one master. We know this. The hellhorn will only work on one. And Victarion.. he´ll fail if not during the battle of fire, shortly after. Poisoned gifts and all that. The dusky woman will betray him. he trusts her with handling the horn, and shell turn the mastery of it back to euron. 

the dragon will just fly back to his master. Its the other side of the world, but by late TWOW, he should be able to reach Euron.


Euron is only using the ironborn to get his dragon and his dragonbride. He couldn´t care less about his army and the ironborn once that happens. the same way he gave up the Shield islands, he could give up Oldtown once he is done.

Assuming that Euron wins his Oldtown battle in TWoW, what is his plan after that?

  1. Will he head to Kings Landing to try and take the Iron Throne?  
  2. Will he stay in Oldtown for now?
  3. Will he travel to meet Daenerys?
  4. Other.

Hopefully get drunk, fall off his ship and drown so we can be done with this awful cartoon evil Jack Sparrow and get back to what is important in the books, rather than this pointless repetitive filler.
