Bran Stark's Purpose was Revealed back in Game of Thrones Season 1 and Book 1

0 ratings | 636235 views
Supposedly, George RR Martin has said that clues to the ending can be found in book 1. I’ve never seen or heard this, but even so, we already know that book 1 DOES foreshadow some HUGE events later in the series. Such as the "hold the door" reveal. "The only tricky part was doors. Sometimes hodor forgot that he had bran on his back, and that could be painful when he went through a door.” So let’s analyze EVERYTHING we learned about Bran Sark in book 1, "A Game of Thrones," to predict his true purpose in the Game of Thrones Season 8 Ending.

bridge4 stoked that I'll be able to learn more about it! Again, I love your channel, and all the thought and evidence goes into every video you do! Thanks for the reply, and I truly can't wait to hear what you have on the topic!

I'll be mentioning it in a video soon :) Thank you BTW!

bridge4 Hey man, I absolutely love your videos! I noticed something while watching one of your videos a few days ago, and then again, when watching the seen with Sam and Gilly reading in the Citadel. What I saw was in the book that Gilly was reading, there was a drawing of Littlefinger's dagger. I'm not very good with plot research and the like, but I wondered if you had noticed as well? Or if you think there could be any importance as to why the dagger used in the attempted murder of a Stark (and future three eyed raven) would be recorded in a book that has other plot importance? Keep up your amazing work! I can't get enough of your channel!

Anyone else think the story will end with the white walkers winning? I think they will wipe out most, if not all, life in Westeros.

I have been wondering about the sword ICE. It has been broken into two separate swords, what if one of them is used to kill Dany in a fire and she fuses with the sword giving us light bringer 🤔 maybe cerci kills her with Jamie’s sword and a dragon toasts both of them because Dany can’t be hurt by fire but it’s too late and then they re forge oath keeper with danny’s death sword by the Baratheon bastard

And tragic!

I lean towards it being a metaohor. Rhaegar was azor ahai,Jon is light bringer But if the prophecy turns out to be literallx that will be exciting :)

Nope. Here's my wild theory. The Last Hero, IS the Night King. The wights where created by the Children of the Forest to destroy the Kingdoms of men. But decided not to do it. Because, oppsie they're all murder-y and stuff. The LIE is the story about how the first men and the children fought a "war" together. The truth is the Last Hero was turned into the Night King to control the Wights and basically stop Armageddon. That' the deal they made. That's why when the children help Bran, the Night Kings pissed. Bran, is not the good guy. Bran is the Villain in this story, the embodiment of the old gods and their desire to destroy men. He wants to stop the Night King. Not because the Night King will destroy all things. But without the Night King the wights will rampant & unchecked across the world. Finishing what the Children of the Forest tried to do long ago. The hinge pin is Sam, that's right, Little Sam. That baby was supposed to carry on the essence of the Night King, continue with the pact and curtail the spread of the Wrights. But dim wit fat Sam and his Autistic girlfriend LITERALLY took the heir to the throne of the Night King south. Now, the Night King is slowly losing control of the wights and as his power fades he is desperately trying to retrieve the baby from South of the wall at all costs. He's not gathering an Army. He's calling the Wights closer to him in order to maintain control. He didn't attack the Wildlings camp because he's an ass-hole. It's because he NEEDED those ships to try and bypass the wall. The plucky heroes haven't been fighting against all odds to stop the big bad Night King. They've been naïve pawns in a cosmic game between gods, slowly arranging their own extinction. Blah Blah blah, the story ends when. The Prince who was promised, AKA Little Sam is returned to the Night King. But instead someone. Likely Jon "I cry myself to sleep" Snow, or Deaderys "That weird kind of hot" Targaryen assumes the Night Kings mantle, forever upholding the pact and saving the world, while the other one assumes the Iron Throne in Kings Landing. Now that Cersei is to old and gross to fuck her way out of what ever cockamamie, numb skull plan she comes up. Her and Jamie finally kick off in some double suicide, one last weird sex+wildfire glory death. That's sure to leave even the most hardened pervert visibly shaken. The Mountain gets killed by Arya "this shit's only possible in movies and T.V" Stark, Sansa Stark and The Hound have their creepy dad vibe pedo/little bird SanSan moment. The series likely ends with The not-the-king-of-all-undead king/queen character stands all weepy and cliché one the wall looking out over the snowy north contemplating the sweet, sweet memory of incestual boat sex. While the other one rocks an Arthas ice throne vibe. Giggity-giigty fuckin' goo.

Wait, the story about Rhaegar being alive ... maybe he didn't go to Dragonstone (or only briefly)... but I still stand behind that he may have become Jaquen H'gar ... and the faceless men may be the ancient heroes mentioned (who knows how long their order has existed/if they can adapt the personalities of long-lost heroes) Though I doubt they would form an army under anyone. Leave alone that he may have decided to not try to reclaim the throne and only returned to Westeros as news of Lyanna's family being in immediate danger reached him... or even earlier as Syrio?

I really liked your choices for the background music, like Winter in King's Landing and My Watch is Ended. Easily some of my favorite soundtracks from the show. Good video, not sure why likes are disabled.

Robert’s Rebellion was not built in a lie, it was built on Rhaegar, a married man with children, kidnapping a fourteen years old girl, who was betrothed to one of the most powerful lords in the realm, and daughter of another powerful lord. Then Aerys wanted pissed off yet another powerful lord. And that was just the straw, people were pissed off by Aerys alreadyz In the show those things makes no sense, but in the books a betrothal is sacred and wars have been fought for less.

how you ever wondered that night king actually do not want bran to die? because if he wanted to back then he could definetly killed him, it's just doesnt right to me that bran could escape from night king at other side of the walls. maybe night king wants to come to arrangement like in the past between white walkers and humans. since bran is the only one that can get back to pass so that he can figure out what was the original agreement and what broke the contract between man and whitewalkers, maybe thats all what the knight king wanted

My prediction is Jon will have to plunge his sword thru Danny's heart to get the power to kill the NK or vice versa. I think Jon more likey to live with the sacrifice, save the world and live the rest of his days in lonely agonizing sorrow.

Since they are magical, I'd like to think that they are beyond warging. Then again,it could be argued that some dragon riders have effectively warged the dragons. So who knows, maybe :)

I mean, I see you number off the "last heroes" In that scene 1-12, and then you number off the 12 WW's but don't count the NK, but in that last hero scene of S7, jon is counted in that, so it's actually 12 > 13

One thing im sure of is that tyrion is going to be king, because there was this line in the first book that described him standing tall like a king?
bridge4 (1 month ago)
“Remember this, boy. All dwarfs may be bastards, yet not all bastards need be dwarfs.” And with that he turned and sauntered back into the feast, whistling a tune. When he opened the door, the light from within threw his shadow clear across the yard, and for just a moment Tyrion Lannister stood tall as a king."

I hope in season 8 there will be an episode focused to give us some truth about the night king!

Unless one of the reasons could be 'it's been done, it happened, therefore it needs to happen' type time travel wizardry lol :) like the whole Hodor thing, he was already Hodor before brands fall, yet the reason he was is due to bran in the future causing the past accident. Time travel is a sticky subject to go into, especially when we know so little of martins take on it, for now at least, I hope lol, c'mon TWOW already :)
bridge4 (1 month ago)
I don't buy those theories at all For example, the wall has already come down. Theres no reason fot bran time travel back and have it built at this point I think bran the builder was a demi-god. Kept alive through blood sacrifices. Garth, bran, durran, lann, and others may have been white walkers

I've been working on it finally th last two days, but I've been sick all week and today is the worst. So after 10 hours (which is a short day for me lol) I stopped and I'm watching "lost in space." I'm trying to finish the second and final "bran's purpose" video by saturday. But the problem is, it's not the best to release it on a weekend. I was hoping to have it up by 3pm tomorrow :( So unless I end up getting even sicker, I'll probably post it around noon Monday Apologies for the delay. I got side tracked on some other stuff offline (Jaime videos that I've been putting off since mid December lol) but I promise that the next game of thrones video I publish will be the bran one :)

I took most my season videos off public since the were so Oldschool. It'll all make sense in the final episode.

Everyone missing the fact that Bran will be a crow, I believe in the end (books). He perch’s for hours. Brings corn for the crows and sleeps in a tree (here he is called a squirrel). Basically saying he can be anything. But more about birds and crows. Which goes much deeper with all the crow stuff in books.

IDK if you explained this in another video, but how could the thirteenth commander of the Night's Watch be the Night King if the Children created the White Walkers before the Long Night then fought with humans to push them back afterward? That's why the Night's Watch was there at the wall (which the Children possibly helped them build). Why would the Children make the thirteenth Lord Commander into ANOTHER White Walker so soon after defeating them? In the books the Night's King falls in love with a female White Walker, and maybe that's how he'd become a Walker, but we watched the Night King being made by Leaf and the other Children, which would have to be before the Long Night. I'm on board with the Night King being a Stark, but it'd have to be a Stark from before the Long Night and therefore the Night's Watch to make sense.
Koda Jolly (1 month ago)
mmm, I still don't think that adds up :/ I don't think the Children would help the First men defeat the first wave of White Walkers, build a magic wall to keep them out, and then make more white walkers on this side of the wall (which if that were the case, how are they now back over on the other side?) and then for there to be no records from the Andals about any of said Walkers. For the record what I was saying about the Night's King is that I don't think he is the Night King canonically speaking anyway. More likely the show makers cannibalized the name cuz they thought it sounded cool. But the Night King we watch being created by the Children has to be the current Night King as the actor having the shard of obsidian stabbed into his chest is the Night King actor. Like I said, I think it'd be interesting and maybe even probable that the Night King is an ancient Stark (the casters tend to cast people based on conceivable familial likenesses, and it's been pointed out before that the Night King looks Stark-ish), just not the same Stark as the Night's King, the thirteenth Lord Commander.
bridge4 (1 month ago)
i tend to think that the cave painting night king (with the beard) was the first night king. and the 13th lord commander is the new one (occuring after the long night. maybe around the time the andals arrived and started burning down weirwoods) as far as the night's king and night's queen, im not sure i believe any of that. it might be a lie. i tend to think that she was a normal girl, danny flint. that the starks broke guest right. killed her. the night's king fled north. and the children converted him it's tinfoil. but i find it hard to believe that the songs that were sung thousands of years before written history started are truthful

Maybe there were never supposed to be White Walkers, rather the Children brought the Long Night - they did break the neck after-all - it's not too far-fetched they could've used more powerful magic to try destroy men but then the magic became its own thing. That's happened a bit, Faceless Men for example are a cult based on the prayers of slaves of Old Valyria and have chosen to be dispensers of death. Maybe the Children plotted to create the Long Night to destroy the planet whilst they hanged out in the Weirwoods to later resurrect themselves via warging. But perhaps, their spell backfired and the Long Night caused the dead to animate so they were forced to create an alliance with men, BUT men found out, betrayed the Children and forged an alliance with the dead via a marriage pact and thus created the first White Walker and ever since they've been harvesting Crasters' and the North's bastards to continue their existence. Perhaps the Sparrow movement in King's landing made the White Walkers nervous and the re-emergence of dragons gave them the impression the Children were trying once more to end the world of men by turning Men against White-Walkers.

*Says good wildlings...shows Ygritte, who murdered a boy's father in front of him in cold blood* Hate to tell you this dude, but Ygritte is evil, straight up. The only two Wildlings I'd go so far as to say are "good" objectively speaking are undoubtedly Mance Rayder and, MAYBE, Tormund Giantsbane, and even then, Tormund slaughtered a helpless village.

Just to point this out.... but the story of the last hero... doesn't that depend on perspective? What I mean is this..... think about the original reason that the Night King was created. For the Children, the Night King was originally salvation from the First Men... so the Story Bran heard may be incomplete stories from an unexpected perspective.

GRRM has always warned readers not to take the prophesies & legends in ASOIF at face value. As our own history proves, these things are distortions, exaggerations, misinterpretations of oral histories combined with the imaginations of everyone who told these tales even after the Citadel tried to record & collect the histories of this world. Many wise Maesters even thought dragons were more myth than fact(as our own science believes today). A huge part of The mystery of ASOIF is for readers to try to figure out how much & what parts of these prophesies & legends are actual facts. The Last Hero story maybe no more accurate than what Ned Stark told his children time & time again about what he did (and found) at The Tower of Joy. Ned knew after talking to Lyanna in the Tower (if not b4) that she loved Rheagar & had gone willing with him. He knew the murder of Arthur Dayne was a shameful act. So even the "honorable" Eddard Stark tried to distort history & hide the truth so posterity would believe Robert Baratheon, Howland Reed & he were noble heroes of a justified civil war. Ned didn't keep the truth from Jon simple to protect him from Robt, but to protect all the lies of Robert's Rebellion. So just how many lies is the tale of The Last Hero protecting(or all of the now favorite legends of Westeros) ? How many dishonorable acts done by the Starks, the oldest, most powerful family in the North? GRRM likes to creates complex characters who are both good & bad depending on their circumstance & goals(just like everyone in real life). No reader can predict what these characters will do or their fate, because GRRM is still creating them & their stories. Even after HBO has wrapped up their version of GOT, it won't satisfy readers of ASOIF, because the creator, a book's author ', has the final gospel version

George didn't write the Hodor door scene. D&D did. George couldn't have been referring to that.

D&d said in a interview g.r.r.martin told them the sad story about how his or got his name,he thought it should be in the show
gematria79 (2 months ago)
kadomox good point! For so many Fans of ASOIF its been years since we read the first 4 books & it's easy to confuse what GRRM has actually revealed to this point from what D&D has put only in their version. Speculating on where GRRM will take his characters 5 or more yrs from now is impossible, so everyone's predictions are really about how HBO will decide to end it's version in 2019-20. I don't think having alternative endings is a bad thing. After all, GRRM told D&D the version they'll use. He'll just likely come up with a lot more ideas for his characters over the next decade while he's finishing his book series.

Someone asked him about the show’s Hodor name reveal. He said that his name reveal in the books will differ in the context and how it happens. So while the name will still mean the same thing (Hold the Door), it will be very different from the show’s reveal. http://screencrush.com/game-of-thrones-hodor-hold-the-door-george-rr-martin-books/ Youre welcome

My main concern, is that the whites 'started' their march, in episode 1. What they did was an act of war, making more armies ect. all while Custer was at truths with them, giving them his sons. They could have been at war since past ep1 and needed those sons to keep coming, hes been doing that for every boy so I feel like they were losing some here and there as other wildlings and giants manage to kill a few maybe? but now that baby sam is past the wall, the whites are like "NO OUR PRINCE THAT WAS PROMISED!!!"
gematria79 (2 months ago)
James Eddleman Craster has always left his newborn sons to die in the woods. The White Walkers hv been hibernating 1000 yrs(since the last long winter that lasted more than a decade), so Craster never had any kind of bargain with The Others(White Walkers). The White Walker Jon saw simply heard a baby crying & adopted it(adapting it to survive as they do). Most of the superstitious people of Westeros believe "only life can pay for life". Sacrificing someone/something living to gods to insure good hunting, good crops, good weather or anything else that helps you survive is just a common practice in most areas of Westeros & Essos.

friese14 yeah but we know dragonglass kills the wights. Do we know if it’s on contact? If it is, then maybe only he can touch it, otherwise they die. Besides, I don’t think the dead knew they had dragonglass in that hut. If they did, how could they have communicated it? We know they scream to grab attention, but do we know if that’s all their screams can communicate?

In the books, stannis mentioned how the caves at dragonstone have some green, red, and purple tho. So the green glass at hardholm may have just been a subtle hint that we will see more of it :)

George rr Martin is a master manipulator and excelled in the art of misdirection (in terms of writing). It’s funny how in this series, where everything exist in a fantasy world where one would expect magic would be a key concept of the story. Although yes, magic does in a way plays an important part so far but I’m amazed that the way he wrote the book somehow ‘magic’ does not overpower everything else. Don’t you think something is not right? It’s as if he does not want people to catch on easily that yes indeed magic is the answer. Think about it, in the series who has magic/supernatural power? Night king, bran, 3eyeraven, redpriest, the brotherhood. so, I believe the answer is clear he is hiding the truth in plain sight. Misdirection. Everything points away from Bran. Bran = night king is fan theory not factual evidence based on the books.
bridge4 (2 months ago)
Thanks :))
mojone87 (2 months ago)
Hehe honestly, at first I actually thought that might be a possibility, but GRRM is the most unpredictable writer I’ve ever known. So I believe theres more to this story than that. So yeah, being on the edge of my seat every time I read the book or watch the show is why I clicked your video. Great job btw really enjoyed it.

Bridge4 can you look at this theory regarding if Jon and Dany will both survive in the end of the show and the possible love square in season 8. Could contain possible spoilers. Please don’t read if you don’t want potential spoilers. We know that rhaegar and lyanna both fell in love and both died. Rhaegar died in war and Lyanna died in childbirth. What if this is exactly what is going to happen to Jon and Dany in season 8. Jon will die in the Great War and Dany will die in childbirth. The twist might be the Kiss of Life will play a part in saving both Jon and Dany next season. I am pretty sure being kissed by fire was mentioned in season 7. What if both Mel and beric have the ability to perform the kiss of life. What if Mel kisses Jon to bring him back to life and what if Beric kisses Dany to bring her back to life. It could go the other way around where beric kisses Jon and Mel kisses Dany. What if the show foreshadowed the kiss of life because we already know about the kiss of death lol. Since we know that the kiss of death happened two times maybe the kiss of life will also happen two times. I think the show foreshadowed that Jon could die again because he told Mel to not resurrect him again if he died at the battle of the bastards. Also in George’s original outline he had a Jon, Arya, and Tyrion love triangle. It could be possible that he changed this to be Jon, Dany, Tyrion, and Daario because I remembered how Daario gave her three flowers instead of two lol. I always thought about the possibility that Tyrion was also in love with Dany. The blue flower= Jon, the red flower= Daario, the white flower = Tyrion. Since Daario showed her those flowers in a unique sequence. We know who is going to win. Wait I think I got the order mixed up its actually. 1. Jon 2. Tyrion 3. Daario

Bridge4 can you please look at this theory regarding who will sit on the Iron throne at the end of the show. Could contain possible spoilers for Season 8. Please don't read if you don't want to see potential spoilers. In my previous comment on a different video I said that Maester Aemon told Jon that he gave the Iron throne to his younger brother. I also previously thought that Jon and Gendry could be half brothers if Jon was actually Robert's son instead of Rhaegar. Jon being Rhaegar's son makes more sense for the story. I now believe that Gendry and Arya could get married in Season 8. Maybe Jon will give the Iron Throne to his younger sister/cousin (Arya). This would be sweet because we know Jon gave Arya Needle in Season 1 before he left for the Night's Watch. Jon giving the Irone Throne to Arya would be a way for George to give Jon a huge gift to Arya for them being away from each other for so long.

Saying Roberts rebellion was built on a lie is a little misleading. Being built on a lie would suggest that Robert knew of lyanna and rhaegars love for each other and decided to ignore it and then change the narrative after he won. And that simply wasn't the case. No lie was told. More like it was built on misinformation
Johnny Skinwalker (10 days ago)
There would have been a rebellion even if everybody knew Lyanne and Rhaegar loved each other. Robert would still be pissed off.
SE FullmetalJake (19 days ago)
George Bedrin I suppose one could say he's being presumptuous when stating that he kidnapped her. But it's littlefinger, and of course wanted to twist it to start a war. "Chaos is a ladder"
SE FullmetalJake (19 days ago)
George Bedrin Actually he would be lying if he was stating it for a fact, saying "Lyanna was kidnapped by Rhaegar" is outwardly lying, even if he didn't know, because he's saying it as a fact when he doesn't actually know..as you say. So it is a lie. Put more simply, he would be lying about something being factual.
SE FullmetalJake (19 days ago)
George Bedrin Well didn't he witness them running away with one another, her going with him hand in hand joyfully rather than being taken against her will?
George Bedrin (20 days ago)
SE FullmetalJake but little finger or anyone else that told him she was kidnapped had no idea she wasn't kidnapped.. he was lying, he was just wrong... Simple

Just had a thought What if Jon was about to kill the nightking as the ending but they find out hes a good guy. Or they discover they can fix him well convert him back to a human or more like benjan and that's the ending curing the nightking and along with him all the whites die or get resurrected. Idk just a thought
Kikker G (2 months ago)
Also to add on what I said earlier although its treu it was not a "rapenapping" the way they went about living their lives was not thought well. Lyanna must have kown how protective her family is of her( and starks being very protective of their bretheren like wolves) I mean she knew her family all her life so she must have thought about how her family might react. Even ignoring that it was a strain on the relations of the realm let to uts melting point. Makes you wonder why she would go into hiding right of the bat...
Kikker G (2 months ago)
bridge4 I suppose so. Also shows what a stranhe concept that is to me, arranged marriages. Makes you wonder if she had known at the end of it the price the realm paid for and if it was worth it.
bridge4 (2 months ago)
Love. She lived in a world where her life choices were not her own. They were arranging a marriage between her and Robert baratheon, a man whom she didn't love Tough situation for her
Kikker G (2 months ago)
Although Its true that the initial causes of the rebellion were build on a lie, it wasn't a single cause that led to Roberts Rebellion. In my eyes it was a combination of current event at that time as well as past grievances. Also a series of unfortunate events at the red keep directly led to more houses joining the rebellion

Samain (2 months ago)
I saw that interview of Martin's though I don't recall where. We notice that Brandon is the central character in the saga: Bran's chapter comes first, and he's seven years old when he first sees a Wilding gone mad from the White Walkers. His existence could be intrinsic with the timeline and the return of magic. Seven, in this case, (as an increment of time), can only be attributed to the Realms rather than the number of new gods since Bran follows the old.

Unfortunately not. I organized the mess that was my dry-erase board today into excel yesterday and created a new schedule. And I realized that I have many more partially completed videos than I had previoulsy thought. Plus ww s2 is starting. So I'm pretty jammed up. Will be a few weeks minimum before I get a chance to reread the next 14 bran chapters and make this video (it's probably a 4 day project) So unfortunately, it's going to be a little bit, primarily bc it's an important topic. Arguably the most important, so I don't want to half-ass it :-/ My apologies

I think Bran will control the Ice Dragon in a final battle scene to help defeat the Night King. This is how Bran will “fly”. I also feel like Jon won’t be aware of Bran controlling the Ice Dragon and will somehow kill the Ice Dragon killing Bran. Also remember when Bran was told that if he stays in the Wolf or Raven too long he will be stuck. So maybe Jon knows Bran is controlling the Ice Dragon but he’s unable to disconnect and ends up being killed.
bridge4 (2 months ago)
historically, if you kill a creature that someone is warging, it doesnt kill the warg. as an example, melisandre used magic to kill the eagle, and varamyr six-skins felt it enough to lose control of his other 6 creatures. but he was alive still in his own body
