Why Does Euron Fight Jaime on the Beach? Who Has the Time, Sir?
Fans of George R.R. Martin's novels have repeatedly pointed out how different this character is between the page and the screen, going from a calculating villain to Jack Sparrow Lite. In the show, not a lot about Euron makes sense, which is cemented during his final moments in "The Bells." After surviving a disastrous attempt to shoot down Drogon, he swims ashore and comes upon Jaime trying to sneak into the Red Keep. Instead of . . . I don't know . . . joining Jaime to go protect Cersei (who he thinks is the mother of his child, FYI), Euron decides to swagger over and taunt Jaime about who's been sleeping with the queen. And then try to kill him for . . . clout? Because he's bored? Because he's a lunatic? Again: nothing about this character makes sense. This was merely a lazy way to "dramatically" kill him off and make Jaime's mission a little harder (I guess?), which in turn only made me wish Euron died in Drogon's fire, instead. Good riddance.
