Bran Stark made a big revelation about the Three-Eyed Raven in the latest Game Of Thrones episode

Ever since Bran Stark became the Three-Eyed Raven in season 6, there has been a big mystery surrounding the role played by his character and how he fits into the sequence of events that have been unfolding over the last few seasons. We know that he can look back into the past and also visit places in the present without having to move an inch and we got a glimpse of his amazing but creepy powers during the previous seasons when he told Sansa about her wedding night with Ramsay and also told Arya that he had seen her at the Inn at the Crossroads.

However, that did not explain how he was going to fight against the Night King. Back in season 6, Benjen Stark told Bran that the Night King would find his way into the world of men and when that happens, Bran would be there waiting for him. So, all this time the show had been setting up Bran Stark against the Night King, while keeping his role a big mystery, untill now!

In the latest Game Of Thrones episode, Bran Stark finally revealed who the Three-Eyed Raven is and the role he is playing in the entire story. We also found out that the Night King was on his way to Winterfell just to kill Bran Stark.

In the episode, all the important characters had come together to plan the defence of Winterfell, and Jon Snow mentioned that the only way to defeat the Army of the Dead was to kill the Night King, who controlled a huge portion of the Wight army. Bran then suggested that he would wait alone in the Godswood to draw out the Night King towards him and that’s when they had the best chance to defeat the Night King. He further added that the Night King had tried to kill a number of Three-Eyed Ravens in the past.

A curious Samwell asked Bran why would the Night King want to do that and that’s when Bran revealed that the Night King wanted an “endless night,” and that he wanted to erase the world and the Three-Eyed Raven served as its memory.

Sam quickly realized what Bran was talking about and he further added, “That’s what death is, isn’t it? Forgetting. Being forgotten. If we forget where we’ve been and what we’ve done, we’re not men anymore. Just animals. Your memories don’t come from the books. Your stories aren’t just stories. If I wanted to erase the world of men, I’d start with you.

This beautifully explained who the Three-Eyed Raven is and what the Night King really wants to do and this is a big piece of information that the show has revealed. We now know that the Three-Eyed Raven is the living history of the world and it’s his job to keep all the information safe and pass it on so that the world doesn’t completely forget about its past and that’s what the Night King wants to destroy.

Bran further added that the Night King’s mark on his hand ensures that the Night King always knows about his location and that it was important to use this to lure the Night King into a trap and destroy him, otherwise it would be impossible to defeat his army.

So, in the next episode, we will see Bran waiting for the Night King to come towards him and we don’t know if the Night King manages to kill Bran or if Jon and others are successful in killing the Night King. It might also be possible that something goes wrong and the plan fails and the Night King escapes.

We just have to wait for the third episode to find out what happens. You can watch the preview of the next episode below:

What are your thoughts about his huge revelation that was made by Bran Stark in the latest episode and what do you think might happen? Let us know in the comments.

Game of Thrones Finale sees Arya Stark finally embracing her old dream

arya stark game of thrones season 8 finale

Game of Thrones series Finale gave each character their dues, some satisfactory and some not so much. But the Stark kids seem to be doing pretty well! Just as Sansa got her childhood wish, Arya Stark too took her first steps in a direction she always wanted to go.

This post contains spoilers, so stop reading if you haven’t seen the finale yet (but seriously, what are you doing? Hurry up!).

game of thrones sansa finale satisfying end

“What’s West of Westeros?” Arya Stark had asked out back in Season 6. She was talking to Lady Crane, an actress who helped her with a stab wound and let Arya stay at her place. That’s what she really wants, to go off exploring beyond where the maps stop.

She couldn’t then. Arya came back home, avenged her family’s death, saved humanity from the undead invasion and survived the carnage at King’s Landing. All her duties done, and Winter already receding, Arya now goes back to her old dream of becoming an explorer. In the last scenes of Game of Thrones Season 8 Finale, we see Arya sailing on a ship, journeying to the “west of Westeros”.

Arya had always been an anomaly in the rigid society of Westeros. She was expected to marry a lord and bear his children. But Arya never saw herself in that role. That’s why she rejected Gendry’s proposal in episode 4, even though she clearly had affection for him. She knew that marriage, even to someone she loves, will bind her in society’s expectations. Arya rejected that with all her heart.

Game of Thrones may not be as kind to everyone, but I’m glad at least Arya got her happy ending!

In Game of Thrones Series Finale, a new era dawns on the Small Council

small-council-game-of-thrones-finale

By the end of the Game of Thrones Series Finale, Westeros is not as it was before. Some changes are big and are immediately visible, like the fate of the Starks and the Targaryens. But some changes are subtle, yet far more impactful in the long run. One such detail is the all-new Small Council of King’s Landing that is formed after the Last War.

This post contains massive spoilers, so be warned!

In an unexpected twist, Brandon Stark was chosen as the King of the Six Kingdoms (North chose to remain out). And as tradition demands, a small council was formed to aid him in the ruling. As Bran’s chosen Hand, Tyrion Lannister presides over the existent Small Council, whose main work is filling up the vacant posts right now. But the people who get precedence in joining the Small Council is quite interesting.

Here are all of them: Ser Davos Seaworth as Master of Ships, Ser Bronn of Blackwater as Master of Coin, Samwell Tarly as Grand Maester, and Brienne of Tarth as Lord Commander of the Kingsguard. Now let’s have a closer look.

Davos and Bronn are lowborn – one was a smuggler and another a mercenary. Sam is a Black Brother whose rights to hold power positions were forfeited. The Kingsguards are all knights and women cannot be knights in Westeros. Brienne would have been barred out of this position by her gender alone – and yet here she is.

In the deeply feudal society of Westeros, the four principle advisers to the King are people who have no birthright to be there, yet all of them have gone through enough experience to earn their place (Although Bronn’s position seems to be a trade-off regarding his ‘service’ of the Lannister brothers). That’s a quiet revolution going on right there.

With the Iron Throne gone and the hereditary kingship system broken (Bran cannot father children and his successor will have to be chosen), the Small Council’s power and prominence grow tenfold. Democracy or not,  interesting times ahead for Westeros!

Drogon broke the wheel in the Game Of Thrones series finale

Why did Drogon do THAT in the series finale

The last episode to the Game of Thrones series dropped today and things went up in flames courtesy Drogon. Tons of spoilers coming up ahead so watch out.

With a little cajoling from Tyrion and yeah, also the fact that Daenerys barbecued thousands of innocent civilians in King’s Landing, Jon FINALLY came to the conclusion that Dany probably wasn’t the best option for Westeros. After a final bout of reasoning where he tried to make her see the light and she refused, Jon finally decided he had had enough and stabbed her in the gut.

Why did Drogon do THAT in the series finale

Drogon then arrived on the scene and upon realising his mom was dead, went on a fiery rampage that didn’t char grill Jon Snow as you would have expected. Instead, he turned on the Iron Throne and melted it to the ground. If you think about it, this was kind of poetic. Daenerys has been talking about breaking the wheel for as long as anyone can remember. The Iron Throne through the often questionable people who sat on it has been the site of injustice and atrocity, and in melting it down, Drogon paid a final tribute to his mother by breaking the final wheel. In addition to this, it was her ancestor who built the Iron Throne using Dragon fire and now Dragon fire was used to destroy it.

The series really did come full circle because the object that everyone’s been fighting over since the very beginning, is now no more.

What did you think of the finale?
