Summary: Inspired by the work of Douglas and Foias in 2006 on the structure of the square of a $C_{0}(1)$-operator, we form a conjecture about a certain reducibility of any power $N$ of a $C_{0}(1)$-operator. We then prove this conjecture for $N=3$ by determining explicitly the relevant reducing subspaces.
