King Broken-Smile: Theon’s Path to the Seastone Chair – Part 2: Landlubbers

In this long, LONG essay, I’m going to break down how I think Theon will end up sitting on the Seastone Chair by the end of ASOIAF (even if he doesn’t stay there for long!) In part 1, we looked at the conspiracies and revolts brewing on the Iron Islands, particularly on Great Wyk. In part 2, we’ll swing over to the mainland to look at the various parties potentially invested in a King Broken-Smile. Originally, I planned on a potential part 3 on the thematic importance and relevance of these plots. Because I am both lazy and economical, I’ve rolled part 3 into the end of this hefty-sized essay, making part 2 THE FINAL PART.

Onward!

King Broken-Smile: Theon’s Path to the Seastone Chair – Part 1: The Anti-Euron Conspiracy

In this long, long essay, I’m going to break down how I think Theon will end up sitting the Seastone Chair by the end of ASOIAF. In Part 1, I’ll look at the state of affairs on the Iron Islands, and examine the potential conspiracy brewing on Great Wyk. In Part 2, we’ll swing over to the mainland and look at where Theon is now and who would want him on the Seastone Chair. If I somehow make it to part 3, I’ll outline specifically how I think the chapters in TWOW will play out, and how they’ll line up with other plotlines in terms of theme and pace.
