Game of Thrones finale aired on May 19, 2019. An epic show has come to an end and it has mixed reviews. A few liked it, a few were shocked and many did not like it. The writers of the show did a pretty good job for the first 7 seasons, but the last reason, it wasn’t that good, to be honest. The episodes of last season even had very low Rotten Tomato ratings. None the less, fans go on to speculate for theories and answers to understand the ending and also to guess the ending of Geroge R.R. Martin’s ending for the books. Did Bran Stark see it all? – Game of Thrones theory.
I have a theory to share that you might or might not have thought of or come across the internet. But honestly, this is my own theory. Here it goes:
Brandon Stark is no more Brandon Stark that we know of, he went on to become the Three-Eyed Raven. If I am not wrong, Bran is the only Three-Eyed Raven left, unless there’s someone else hiding in the bushes. The Three-Eyed Raven has the power of warging and greensight. He sees events from the past and can influence the present too, like the Hodor event and it is even said, he can see the future too. What more does a king need? He can see everything that is happening in the kingdom and can even know of any betrayals or mischief.
There is, or should I say was another character who shared almost the same powers as Bran, who is none other than The Night King. He was able to Wrag too and also raise the dead to join his army for the long night. The Night King was created by The Children of the Forest for protection, but the Night King did not turn out to help The Children of the Forest, he had his own plans.
The Lord of the Light vs The God of Death
Did you ever think of these two gods or lords fighting each other? Well, I thought of that. The Lord of the Light had his own plans, he brought Beric Dondarrion back to life many times to save Arya Stark in the Great War, The Lord gave powers to Melisandre to be young, that same Lord gave Jon Snow his life back to join forces that helped in defeating The Night king and fight the White Walkers, let me explain it you how. All that Lord of the Light had to do was show figures and images in the flames. But that’s it? Did the Lord of Light do something else? I’ll tell you soon about what else he did…
Coming to The God of Death, he was mentioned very less when compared to the Lord of The Light, God of Death wants death(of course), but how did the God implement his plans? My answer is The Night King, all that the Night King wanted was death, he wanted to erase the world and its memory- A perfect definition of death. Which means The God of Death’s executioner is The Night King, he is given the power to raise the dead for an army and warg around the world.
Now, who is the executioner of The Lord of the Light, it is definitely The Three-Eyed Raven, who is now Bran. When The Night King has the power to raise dead, even Bran might have the power to raise someone from dead and that’s what happened to Beric and Jon. Well, they did not become White Walkers but were given their life back, which might be the power of The Lord of the Light, unlike The God of Death.
If this theory is true,
It has been the fight been the Light and Death all along from the beginning. The God of Death wants everyone dead, but the Lord of the Light is preventing that to happen. Now you might come across this question, then why didn’t Bran bring everyone back to life before The Night King raised them to join his army. Just remember how old is the Night King, probably thousands of years old and Bran is hitting his teenage, he needs time to practice his ultimate powers.
It was Bran that gave Jon his life back, that gave Beric his life, many times kept Melisandre young and also gave the dagger to Arya Stark under the same tree, where Arya, later on, killed the Night King. Bran is smart, sorry the Three-Eyed Raven is smart. Though all of this explanation is not shown on the screen, it might be explained in the coming books of Geroge R.R. Martin.
Bran the Broken
Game of Thrones, series starts off its first episode with Bran being pushed off the window by Jaime Lannister, he then killed the Mad King and in no time, he was about to kill another going-to-be a king, I think Jaime has the king slayer blood running through his veins, but the point is, in episode 1 of season 1, before Ned Stark went on to swing his sword to kill that guy who ran away from the Night’s Watch, he passes sentence and beheads him. While passing the sentence he says, ‘First of his name, King of the Angels’, the camera shifts to Bran. I don’t know if its a coincidence, but this actually happens.
Greensight is another power that the Three-Eyed Raven possesses, he might have seen the defeat of The Night King, Jon killing Daenerys Targaryen and also he himself become that king. When Tyrion asks, ‘Will you wear the crown?’ Bran replies saying, ‘Why do you think I came all this way?’. I mean, he is the mastermind of all the events that happened on the show, the story is his manipulation and execution. The Lord of the Light has won and now has power over the whole of Westeros.
This is it, I am not sure about what’s going to happen in the book, but I am sure it is going to be better than the show and I completely believe in George R. R. Martin, he is the right one to give this epic saga an end. That’s all about Did Bran Stark see it all? – Game of Thrones theory. Follow Update Freak on social media for more cool updates.
