Game of Thrones is on a definite roll right now, with two back-to-back excellent episodes in the form of last week’s “Book of the Stranger” and this week’s “The Door.” The show is barelling along deeper into uncharted territory as it pulls further away from George R.R. Martin’s source material and as such, every week is pretty much a massive surprise. While this week’s biggest (and best) surprise was the shocking revelation about why Hodor is Hodor, there were also a bunch of other interesting developments that are sure to spark a lot of discussion. Here are the 10 most pressing questions we have after watching “The Door.”
10. Why Did Euron Wait Until After The Kingsmoot To Try And Kill Theon And Yara?
Euron Greyjoy soundly defeated his niece Yara in the bid for becoming the new ruler of the Iron Islands (to be fair, it’s pretty hard to compete with a ruthless pirate who cut out the tongues of his entire crew) and his first act as ruler was … less than inspiring. For whatever reason, Euron decides to wait until after the Kingsmoot ceremony to order the deaths of Yara and Theon, which gives them plenty of time to not only escape, but take most of the Ironborn fleet with them. Euron doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who would let decorum get in the way of killing his rivals off, so it made little sense for him to wait until the precise moment he’s declared king to order their deaths.
