In the books, what is Euron Greyjoy’s endgame? He won the kingsmoot, plots to marry Daenerys Targaryen and use his dragon horn to control her dragons, then he conquers the Shield Islands and gives them to his potential enemies. Euron said that he purposely gave the Shield Islands to his potential enemies so they would fail to hold them, destroying them in the process, which is pretty clever. However, now he is sailing his fleet up the Mander River and getting ready to face both the Redwyne and Hightower fleets. What is the Mad Kraken’s ultimate goal? He is surrounded by two enemy fleets with seemingly no hope of escape from the heart of enemy territory. However, he clearly has a plan for the warlocks and priests he captured including his brother Aeron. Does Euron plan to use the warlocks and priests in a human sacrifice in order to unleash some unholy magic upon the Redwynes and Hightowers? If that happens, what then? Aeron did have a vision of Euron on the Iron Throne with a mysterious woman by his side. Does Euron hope to use his ironborn as well as dark magic to pay the iron price and take the Iron Throne from the Lannisters? Also, who is the woman Aeron sees him with? Is it Cersei or Daenerys? I can’t wait to find out in the next book, The Winds of Winter.
