Get ready, “Game of Thrones” fans. A great battle is about to begin.
[WARNING: STOP READING UNLESS YOU WATCHED THE “GAME OF THRONES” SEASON 6 FINALE.]
Big moves were made in the Season 6 finale of the hit HBO series. Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) took her position on the Iron Throne after Tommen’s (Dean-Charles Chapman) suicide, while in Winterfell Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was named the King of the North. As new power players were crowned, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) took her army out on the open water to head for Westeros. But the Queen of Dragons doesn’t just have the Unsullied and Dothraki with her. She partnered with Yara Greyjoy (Gemma Whelan) and her fleet from the Iron Islands, along with Ellaria Sand’s (Indira Varma) Dorne army and Olenna Tyrell’s (Diana Rigg) army from House Tyrell. A battle for the Iron Throne is brewing, but another character who did not appear in the “Game of Thrones” Season 6 finale may be the one to watch. A couple of interesting scenes from this past season, along with George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels, tease that newcomer Euron Greyjoy ( Pilou Asbæk) may be a huge character to follow in Season 7.
Euron told his loyal ironborn subjects all about his plan to marry Daenerys and reclaim power. In the book, Euron has a horn called the Dragonbinder, which can be used to become the master of dragons. Viewers have yet to see Euron with the horn, but one fan points out that it may have been introduced in an earlier season. The Poor Quentyn Tumblr speculates that Sam could have the horn.

If Sam is still in possession of the horn then he may be in trouble. In the books Euron attacks Oldtown, which is where Sam currently is studying to become a maester.
Euron thinks that he’ll be able to woo Daenerys, but Yara already filled the Queen of Dragons in on her evil uncle’s plan. In episode 9 she explained that Euron would be willing to offer her ships in exchange for her hand in marriage. His desire is to join forces to rule the Seven Kingdoms.
“You won’t get one without the other,” Yara told Daenerys.
The two shook hands on their agreement to work together, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that Daenerys is closed off to the idea of marriage. She did break things off with Daario (Michael Huisman) in the finale in order to pursue a marriage that could help secure her the throne.
Will the two get married? Who knows. But they certainly must cross paths at some point.
“The true enemy won’t wait out the storm,” Jon Snow says in the finale. “He brings the storm.”
We all know that the White Walkers are coming, but Huffington Post points out that the former Lord Commander may actually be referring to Euron. Although the two men have not met, Euron had a curious quote about “the storm” when he was first introduced earlier this season.
“I am the storm, brother,” he told his brother Balon (Patrick Malahide) before pushing him to his death. “The first storm and the last.”
Could this just be a simple coincidence? Maybe. But it’s pretty suspicious.
“Game of Thrones” Season 7 will premiere in 2017.
