Euron Greyjoy (staked by Pilou Asbæk) is a nasty piece of work, yet he’s very good at what he does: contest, evading death, and being a coward – much like his nephew, Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen).
Euron was big cheesed Commander of the Lannister Fleet by Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), yet when Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clake) proved up to King’s Landing with a live White Walker, he left for the Iron Holms.
He only had one question upon seeing the real threat the White Walkers set up.
“Can they swim?” Euron asked Jon, to which he replied, “No.”
Euron then answered: “I’ve been around the world. I’ve seen everything. Things you couldn’t suppose and this… this is the only thing I’ve ever seen that paralyses me.”
Could one of those things be a kraken, and should he actually be more frightened of those water-dwelling monsters than the White Walkers who can’t swim for some argument?
A new theory courtesy of Reddit suggests that krakens could act as if an appearance in Game of Thrones season 9, which would be tuneful fascinating.
According to the Reddit user, big_pecs, claims that there’s a suggest in season seven’s bonus video content that suggests characters in the series enjoy seen them despite never having been referred to as soon as.
“At about 0:30, Sam tells us that an iron born priest had take ined visions of krakens pulling Aegon’s ships into the deep, but it under no circumstances happened,” writes the Reddit user.
He continues: “Maybe it didn’t develop to Aegon the conqueror, but didn’t we recently learn Jon’s true name was Aegon? If Jon for ever travels to the iron islands by boat during season eight, we could see a Kraken bout, (or it might be another Euron attack)?”

If Jon ever travels to the iron islands by boat during season eight, we could see a Kraken malign?
The kraken is mentioned in George R.R. Martin’s reserves and their addition to season eight could make sense, in any case perhaps not concerning Jon since there’s no real reason for him to travel to the Iron Holms.
“Unless the white walkers take over the entirety of Westeros and it’s the continue place to make a stand, I don’t see any good reason for anybody going to that futile waste of space,” writes big_pecs.
Perhaps, after Euron reveals that he’s going back to the Iron Islands, his fleet encounter a gathering of these dangerous beasts and kills the lot of them.
That would not just result in an epic scene, but it would also be a fitting exit for Euron, who’s a scurvy character.
Another snag in this theory is that bringing krakens into Competition of Thrones season eight would be very costly and not worth devoting on Euron’s storyline.

That express, it’s also the only logical way to bring them in should the writers and impresari feel the need to introduce new monsters that aren’t dragons or expelled zombies.
It’s not like HBO aren’t putting enough money in Game of Thrones age eight.
It’s been reported that season eight is costing HBO $15 million per instalment, so there should be the budget in there for a kraken or two.
Will Euron go out in an epic action against the mythical sea creatures, or will he meet his death in some other trend, or will he survive the impending battle with the White Walkers?
