Of the many characters that make Game of Thrones what it is, there is one that is held to be the key to the whole thing by many a fans, and that is because the character has an air of mystery to it. We are of course speaking of Bran Stark, who is now the Three-Eyed Raven, and all deep. We have seen the character undergo transformation like no other on the show, and the character is at a point right now where he could be holding the key to defeating the Army of the Dead. In a recent interview, Issac Hempstead Wright, who plays the role of Bran Stark, revealed his thoughts on how the Bran Stark character arc could come full circle. Read on!
Issac recently spoke to TIME, and it seems he has a new theory, and it’s not that same old theory which says that Bran Stark is actually the Night King, although we won’t be giving up on it just yet. Issac explained his alternate theory :
“I like the idea that it’s actually a full circle and Bran becomes the Three-Eyed Raven that was in his dreams when he was younger. I like the idea that it’s a deterministic, destiny driven thing where the old wise man went back in time as the Three-Eyed Raven to tell the young Bran to go north to the cave and it’s a paradox.”
Now, this isn’t really that far fetched, definitely lesser than the Night King theory. There have been things said that can be taken as clues. For example, this famous dialogue : “The past is already written. The ink is dry.” This is an indicator that Bran can’t really change anything, but can just become what he is supposed to become. There is a good chance he actually goes back to help himself become the Three-Eyed Raven. The Three-Eyed Raven even says to him as a farewell : “The time has come…for you to become me.” Could be yet another clue.
Issac also expressed his love for fan theories :
“My favorite fan interactions are always when someone has something to say about the show or some kind of theory, because I’m a big fan of the show as well. I think I speak for the whole cast when I say that we all love this television series as much as everyone else does. So when someone comes up to me and gives me a theory or asks me my opinion on something, I love being able to talk about that.
What do you think? Could Issac’s theory actually be true? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
