Game of Thrones season 8 spoilers just doesn’t seem to stop coming anytime soon. Now the latest GoT spoiler/theory states that Bran might be the key to defeat Night King once and for all.
We have heard from the former Three-Eyed Raven that “the ink is dry”. But Game of Thrones has given us several hints that this might actually turn out to be wrong. If Bran is more capable of than just watching the events unfold, he could be behind stopping the Night King.
The finale will come to an end in thirty-five days and you will have the answers to all your questions. Apart from the big questions racing in your mind, there are a lot of loose ends that the show has. They revolve around the places, characters, events, prophecies and will it all wrap to the audience satisfaction.
The Loose End
Bran Stark is the most tantalizing and mystifying character on Game of Thrones. He got amazing powers after becoming the Three-Eyed Raven. Bran got the power to view the past and an all new perception of things altogether.
But we still don’t know how far can Bran get with his powers. Is he also capable of changing the past and affect the future? In the previous Game of Thrones seasons, we have seen that Bran is capable of projecting himself into the past and he can also sway over the actions of other characters in the earlier eras. His limits will define if he is actually a magic bullet or just an effective fact-finder.
Why does the loose end matters?
If Bran is capable of changing the past with the help of complicated time travel, then he can simply journey back and prevent all the undesired events of GoT from happening. Else, he can just travel down the memory lanes and strengthen his facts, maybe help Jon to claim the Iron Throne.
We saw that Bran has some effect to the present state of affairs. As we can infer from Hodor’s situation. Hodor’s mind was damaged since he was introduced in the beginning of the show. But in the sixth season of Game of Thrones we got to know that the damage actually happened from a seizure when Bran warged into Hodor. It wouldn’t be surprising if we hear some other significant incident that would bring about a change in the past.
What could be GoT Season 8’s take on it?
Bran used to hate stories as a little kid. But ironically, he ended up having access to everyone’s stories when he became the Three-Eyed Raven. He used to tell his caretaker,
I don’t want any more stories. I hate your stupid stories. I don’t care whose stories they are. I hate them.
Bran spoiled in an interview that he didn’t get a chance to access all the stories of Game of Thrones. For doing that, you need to spend eons in a cave beyond the Wall. If Bran has the capability of affecting the characters in the past, we wouldn’t need a six-episode season for getting to the end. But it won’t be that simple.
