Only Book-Readers Would've Caught This "Game Of Thrones" Detail

About those pirates...

You see, Euron's ship is named "Silence," and there's a very literal reason for it: Euron spares some captives from his raids and offers them a role on his crew, but cuts out their tongues so they can't speak.


But that's not all! Readers were also treated to a little easter egg in the form of Euron's axe, which may have been a nod to his older brother, Victarion.


Victarion hasn't made any appearances in the show, but in the book he's known for wielding a huge axe in battle. So either Euron picked up Victarion's axe, or the show is giving Euron some of Victarion's traits to combine the characters a little.
