Game of Thrones villain promises to make Ramsay Bolton look like ‘a little kid’

Paul Moore

There’s more to fear that just White Walkers.

Game of Thrones is renowned for famous introductions, but in terms of Euron Greyjoy, his first step onto the ladder of chaos was instantly memorable.

Truth be told, you have to admire someone that’s ballsy enough to say “I don’t mock the drowned god, I am the drowned god.”

As we know, Euron’s next line was the last thing that his brother, Balon Greyjoy, heard before meeting his maker. “I am the storm brother, the first storm and the last…and you’re in my way.”

Well, it appears that the man who currently sits on the Salt Throne is about to pick up the villainous mantle of Joffrey Baratheon and Ramsay Bolton in Game of Thrones.

Empire magazine had a season preview of Game of Thrones and the actor who plays Euron, Pilou Asbæk, has been talking up his characters ruthlessness in Season 7.

“The psychos I’ve encountered have so many different sides to them. So each scene I’ve done with Euron, I pick a new thing I wanna show. ‘This scene I want to be charming.’ ‘This scene I wanna be a molester.’ ‘This scene I wanna kill someone.’ After this season, Ramsay’s gonna look like a little kid,” he said.

Given that Ramsay Bolton has tortured, mutilated and fed his victims to the dogs, that’s going to take some topping!

We can only imagine what the King of the Iron Islands has in store.

Now that we know that Euron’s ship, Silence, makes an appearance in the trailer, it’s very likely that he’s the reason why Theon Greyjoy looks so worried.

What is dead may never die.

There were also a few other mild spoiler details in the article. Consider this to be your spoiler alert warning.

Sophie Turner gave an update on Sansa’s status and her burgeoning position of power in Season 7. She said: “Sansa has this newfound power, but not as much as Jon. This season is all about her struggles with that.”

Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) stated that his character is in a “precarious situation.” Well, given that he knows about Jon’s birth at the Tower of Joy and how the White Walkers were created, this information “could change the entire story” if it’s revealed to the wrong person.

Elsewhere, those rumours about Jon Snow’s real name appear to have been confirmed.

You know nothing Jaehaerys Targaryen.

Nah, it just doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it?
