Nucky Thompson Posted August 3, 2013 Share Posted August 3, 2013 It seems quite probable to me that those two characters were set up to meet from the onset of the series. It is likely that Aeron would be in awe of Patchface and take him for the Drowned God incarnate. Where does it go from there, remains unclear, but either Aeron would pledge the Ironborn (as far as he can control them) to Stannis' cause, or he would try and take Patchface with himself back to the Iron Islands to rule over the Ironborn and thus to oust the pesky Euron with the highest trump card available in their Drowned God deck. How would Euron react to it would be a guess at that point, since it is unclear if he would have finished his own personal quest by taking Oldtown, but it would probably involve something to do with his warlocks in an attempt to show an even bigger miracle.The more interesting part is to speculate as to how Aeron and Patchface meet. There is already a theory on these forums that Aeron has gone North to the Land of always winter in a last-ditch attempt of a spiritual journey or whatever due to his practical exile at the hands of the new regime on the Islands. Whether he is captured by someone and brought to Castle Black or the events there lead to the escape of the Queen's retinue along with Patchface who happen to go west for the Shadow Tower, or wherever else their paths may combine, an interaction between the Ironborn and Patchface seems a very likely scenario according to me. And there is also the option of Aeron going back South with the Others at his heel and then meeting with the Queen's entourage (Patchface included) which either reinforces his belief that the Others are an instrument of the Drowned God, or makes him rethink his view on them (assuming that at this point he has one on them).
