Bran Stark is going to witness an interesting vision in episode 5: The Door

Published

on

Bran Stark returned to Game of Thrones after a long gap in season 6 and it was worth the wait. Since the start of this season we have witnessed some interesting visions, be it watching young Ned, Benjen and Lyanna Stark along with young Hodor at Winterfell or the exciting scene at the Tower of Joy where we witnessed the fight between Ned Stark, Howland Reed and their men, and the amazing Ser Arthur Dayne.

We also came to know that Bran can affect the past in his visions as Bran called Ned Stark and Ned immediately turned to see who called him. It might be possible that he might have heard some other sound but that seems unlikely. We might get to see more about his abilities in the upcoming Game of Thrones episode, The Door. If you haven’t yet watched it, take a look at the preview of The Door.

In the preview we see Bran surrounded by Wights and when he turns around, he sees the Night’s King is standing behind him. Now it is interesting to take a look at the place where Bran is standing in the vision.

If you look carefully, you will see lot of stones placed around the tree. It might not seem significant at first but when you take a look at the picture which HBO Go released yesterday, it becomes more interesting.

The Children of the Forest are sitting in front of the same stones where Bran is standing in his vision and the entire area is covered in grass. So does this mean that the area to the North of the Wall wasn’t always covered in snow and are we going to see a vision in which Bran sees the origins of the Children of the Forest? For those who don’t know, before the First Men and the Andals came to Westeros, the Children of the Forest used to live freely throughout Westeros but after the arrival of the Andals, they had to move far North to survive from the Andals.

It might be possible that in the next episode, Bran’s vision takes him to the past where he learns about the initial days of the Children of the Forest and then he witnesses “The Long Night“. Here’s a description of the Long Night by Old Nan.

Thousands of years ago, there came a night that lasted a generation. Kings froze to death in their castles, same as the shepherds in their huts; and women smothered their babies rather than see them starve, and wept, and felt the tears freeze on their cheeks… In that darkness the White Walkers came for the first time. They swept through cities and kingdoms, riding their dead horses, hunting with their packs of pale spiders big as hounds.

Bran might go to the past in his vision and then he decides to stay there for more time and he sees the rise of the White Walkers. However, we know that staying in the vision too long isn’t safe as the Three-Eyed Raven cautioned Bran in the previous episode while saying, “It is beautiful beneath the sea, but if you stay too long, you’ll drown.

In the preview for the next episode we see that Bran is surrounded by the Wights and Meera is desperately trying to wake Bran up but he can’t come out of the vision. Is this what the Three-Eyed Raven meant when he said you will drown?

Also Bran turns around and see’s the Night’s King behind him and if you have watched the Game of Thrones season 6 March Madness trailer, you will realise that in the same scene, the Night’s King also holds Bran’s hand in the vision. Now we don’t know how that is possible but does it mean that even the Night’s King is a Greenseer who joined the side of the Great Other?!

We can only wait for Sunday to arrive, so that we come to know what really happens.

“You will shut many eyes forever – brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes.” So said Melisandre of Asshai when she met Arya Stark for the first time. This prophecy has played out since then, with both ‘brown eyes’ (Walder Frey) and ‘blue eyes’ (Night King) succumbing to Arya’s blade. Fans have long predicted the green eyes to signify Queen Cersei. But the equation changed with Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 ‘The Bells’ when another pair of green eyes became very important – Queen Daenerys Targaryen.

In an unfathomably shocking act of madness, Daenerys Targaryen torched thousands of innocent King’s Landing civilians in Game of Thrones’ penultimate episode, and as such established herself as the most devastating villain of the series ever.

Before Dany’s Mad Queen twist, Cersei was being regarded as the ‘Mad Queen’, mainly for blowing the Sept of Baelor with Wildfire in Season 6, but also for her general ruthlessness and murderous ways. The Lannister Lioness’ green eyes are quite famous and have been referenced multiple times in the books and the show.

Now, Cersei has been on Arya’s kill list since Season 2 and she even came to King’s Landing with the purpose of killing her. Melisandre’s prophecy in Season 3 also included green eyes, so many fans thought Arya will fulfil this target next. That expectation was strengthened when Arya left Winterfell on ‘unfinished business’ in episode 4.

But Sandor Clegane turned Arya back from that path and she went on to survive the burning of the city by just an inch. With Cersei now dead and Arya witnessing Daenerys’ carnage first-hand, it is all too possible that the significance of ‘green eyes’ has changed for Arya.

Interestingly, Daenerys’ eyes were not even supposed to be green. In the books, they are purple, and in keeping with the unusual physiological traits of Valyrian Dragonlords from whom Daenerys is descended. But Emilia Clarke, the actor who plays Daenerys in the show, has green eyes. Although she wore purple contacts in the unaired pilot of Game of Thrones, that idea was discarded in the main show and Clarke stuck to her natural eye colour.

If the show follows the books in terms of major plot points (and Daenerys’ death should be a major plot point) then the Arya-killing-Daenerys-because-of-prophecy scenario is unlikely, because book Daenerys does not even have green eyes. But the show has introduced many plot twists – so this is not totally implausible either.

What do you think of this theory? Will Arya fulfil the ‘green eyes’ prophecy by killing Daenerys or some completely different end awaits the ‘Queen of Ashes’? Tell us in the comments!

Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 5 “The Bells” had a lot going for it. So many happenings and so many deaths in just one episode, but it ended with a scene that baffled quite a lot of users. We saw Arya make her way through the destruction in King’s Landing, and find a white horse, whom she rides out of the city. Here’s what it could mean for the show, and the series finale.

White Horses have been used as a symbol in storytelling for a long time now, for both good and bad things. However, fans are speculating that this particular bit might be pointing towards a Bible verse that talks about the four horsemen of the apocalypse. The passage says:

“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.”

Arya and death have danced for a long time in the show, and it seems like the show is hinting that Arya will have a final battle with death in the series finale. We saw who brought death in “The Bells” — Daenerys Targaryen, and it feels like could be the second bit of foreshadowing that Arya could be responsible for Daenerys’ death, after the ‘green eyes’ clue.

It also connects to both Arya and Daenerys, as Ned Stark used to ride a white horse, and so did Daenerys, at the beginning of the show. Maybe it’s things coming together for Arya and Daenerys, both of whose fathers were murdered in King’s Landing.

Either that, our we will get our expectations subverted again. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Fans have been waiting for the Clegane brothers to clash for so many seasons now that it would be heartbreaking if they passed that up completely. But fret not fandom. There are several hints that Cleganebowl is well and truly coming, and might actually happen Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 5. Read on!

The last time we have seen Gregor ‘The Mountain’ Clegane and Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane come face to face was the Season 7 finale. Hound did not miss the opportunity to remind Mountain that the fight is still on. The Mountain didn’t respond except glowering menacingly but then he hasn’t been very talkative for some time, has he? But that scene was the first time the makers openly acknowledged and gave credence to what up till then have just been theories.

Hints galore in episode 4

The first three episodes of Season 8 had been preoccupied with the Dead. But Sandor Clegane is right back on track with episode 4. He says “there is only one thing that will make me happy” when Sansa talks to him, which is a clear indication to facing his brother. The next time we see the Hound he is striking out alone on a horse. Arya catches up with him and they share some good old warm and fuzzy insults.

Arya and Sandor leave together for King’s Landing

Sandor then again says, “I have unfinished business in King’s Landing.” He is not interested in the war; he would have left with Jon Snow’s army then. So why is he going to King’s Landing? Obviously, to face his no. 1 nemesis and elder brother Gregor.

It’s even by supported narrative logic. The Mountain protects Cersei, and it would be necessary to eliminate him before anyone gets to her. Now Arya is obviously going to King’s Landing, and both Cersei and Mountain are on her List. It makes sense for Arya and Hound to team up again to execute their revenge.

What is Cleganebowl theory?

The Cleganebowl theory goes back beyond the show, it started with the book series fans. Sandor and Gregor’s enmity begun back into their childhood, Gregor would bully his little brother endlessly and once pressed his face onto a hot brazier over a small fight about a toy.

Sandor and Gregor Clegane fight in Game of Thrones Season 1

The fire burned away one whole side of Sandor’s face, made him a complete cynic, and gave him a deep-seated fear of fire that made him defect from the Battle of Blackwater and would have done the same in Battle of Winterfell except for Arya and Beric. Hound has repeatedly said that he considers killing the Mountain to be his destiny. It was the one thing that kept him standing through all injuries and hardships. He is not the cold-hearted cynic he once was, but the hate still burns.

Right from Season 1, we are told that Sandor has vowed to kill his brother one day and by Season 7 it has almost become a destiny. Even the actors Rory McCann (Hound) and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (Mountain) have been hyping about it off-screen. As Game of Thrones completes its journey in just two more episodes, Cleganebowl seems imminent.
