I believe that the theory compared the hypothetical alliance to more what the U.S. had with pet dictators in the Middle East.

Yes. He's also, perhaps, romantically connected to the series' Satan figure. It all fits.

If Euron has to be connected to Bloodraven, I like the idea that he would be a fallen protege, though I can't see Bran as a plan B situation because he's one of my favorites.

I'm personally hoping that if Euron is a greenseeer, then he's an enemy of Bloodraven and not someone he trained, but rather he's going to train Bran to counter Euron somehow. (Maybe warging into the inevitable dragon Euron will probably take control of) I could see Euron maybe having the sight, but not a very strong connection, and him doing anything in his power to make it stronger.

Well Euron alludes to having a backstory that's very similar to Bran's, in terms of the dreams and the crow symbolism as a child. As Bloodraven is the last Greenseer, I'm not really sure how else Euron would possible gain these dreams or who else has the visual motif of the crow/raven.

Bloodraven at this point is basically just a husk, a skeletal corpse that's barely kept alive by the Weirwood. Leaf describes him as having lived far too long, and I think she's right. I think the original plan was for his successor to be Euron about 40-45 years before AGoT, (which would have been right about the end of Bloodraven's natural lifespan) and when that failed Bloodraven had to wait until the next person with those abilities came about-Bran. I think its a Vader/Obi-Wan/Luke dynamic between them, with the Night's Queen/Great Other serving as the ones who corrupted Euron into the satanic creature he is now.

Im wondering if the show will ever have the dragons in the water again? In season three Drogon could dive for fish. I would ****ing love for Euron and his fleet to be on the sea facing down Dany's fleet and Dany's dragons come bursting out of the water from underneath three of Euron's ships and just crush them.

Doubtful. Dragons have historically fared poorly in battles where water comes into play; During Aegon's Conquest Meraxes was unable to be properly utilised in the taking of Storm's End because the rain was too heavy for it to fly or breathe fire. During the Dance of the Dragons the Tyroshi fleet managed to kill both Vermax and Stormcloud by taking advantage of the aquatic conditions and using whaling techniques to bring them down.

Dany would want to hope that it's a bright, sunny, warm day at open sea when she faces Euron's fleet. But given that it's Winter...

It's because Euron Phelps has defeated that drug-cheat Daario.

The water didn't bother Drogon when he was fishing. He went in the water and came back out and breathed fire like it was nothing. So I'm not sure water will be a weakness in the show.

Blonde is her natural hair color:



She confirmed it in an interview:
Quote:
Marie Claire: Do you color your hair for the show?

Sophie Turner: I do. I'm naturally blonde, so [right now] this is like fading auburn. I like the auburn.

What kind of person brags about their Hugo Losers Party then throws out a "sorry, invitation only" at the end?

The same kind that left me high and dry after that Damphair chapter.
