Why Bran Stark will be King

  • Published on Apr 29, 2019
  • Today I'm hitting you all with one of my most controversial (and probably unlikely) predictions. At the end of Game of Thrones, the Starks will be the new royal family, and the official ruler of Westeros will be the Three Eyed Raven himself. King Brandon Stark.
    Not the King we expect, but the one we deserve.
    EDIT: Please check the upload date before commenting. Or, watch my season 8 predictions video. I'd rather not keep responding to false/unsubstantiated accusations.

    *In response to accusations claiming that I saw plot leaks and then made this video.*
    I didn't, and I can prove it. Here is the freefolk thread documenting accurate plot leaks: www.reddit.com/r/FreeFolkNews/comments/bmfdv7/compilation_of_leakers_who_gave_previous_accurate/
    If you read through this thread, you will find that it compiles several plot leaks from over 3 different leakers. Now, the plot leak which actually mentioned that Bran would be King, was not posted until April 28th. But of course, if you know how leaks work, you'd know this one did not gain any attention until much later, because it didn't come from a reputable leaker, and it didn't actually predict anything correct until May 4th when it was confirmed by episode 4. In fact, non of these plot leaks, from the ones posted last December, to the afraidpart leaks posted last Summer, had received any attention by the community until episode 3 aired (on account of them having predicted Arya killing the NK and Lyanna Mormont's death). That was literally the night before I released this video. Before that, the afraidpart leaks (which again, did not mention Bran) were just one in a thousand self proclaimed leaks of which 99.9% turned out false.
    Now, if ya'll are honestly suspicious enough that you think I watched episode 3, went and found the April 28th leak before anyone else and before it had been confirmed in any way, and then immediately wrote this script and put together this video over night, then you're clearly a very paranoid individual and you don't have any idea know how much time these videos take. But, just to throw those suspicious folks a bone, *here is me predicting King Bran back on March 31st:* thexvid.com/video/yTskuAes73o/video.html
    So hopefully ya'll can stop making these same tired accusations and give me some peace lol.

      @YezenIRL the fact that the show mostly ended like this and you got a few things (extreme minor details) wrong let me know that you are active in the fandom and made a great prediction! That being said. Its a stupid ending. One im only willing to believe only of bran is the night king. But good intuition bud i liked the structure of your vid. And first short story or book you post i would like to read.

    I really hope you had not read or heard any leaked script or anything because I loved your reasoning in this. I didn't particularly love the idea of Bran being king when I watched the finale and was only ok with it because he is a Stark and I wanted a good end for them but your video has made me see so much more in this end. I thought Jon and Dany both losing the throne was quite poetic seeing how both ice and fire didn't get the throne and I think Bran also fits well in the poetic end.
    Still I'm a Danaerys fan forever 🖤

    The three-eyed raven is a true God. Omnipresent but not omnipotent. The religions in GOT ASOIF are toxic dividers, but a fairy tale ending; a benevolent God on the throne.

    “Bran should have the iron throne because he’s good at sitting” may as well have been the reasoning behind why they chose him. It would’ve made as much sense as the rest of the season which is none.

  • nividi kevichusa
    nividi kevichusa 27 days ago +1

    I said this to all my friends.. almost all the Starks n likely rulers have blood on their hands and are very bad at forgiving their enemies.The concept of reconciliation and forgiveness is almost absent in the series. Cept for Bran forgiving Jamie, and affirming Theon.It makes him Worthy to be a good King. Not power hungry, ambitious, fighter.

    • Nutty dishwasher
      Nutty dishwasher 22 days ago

      True, almost all cruel and wrathful characters (Cercei, Tywin, Daenerys, The Baratheon brothers, etc..) in this series died, while the forgiving ones (Bran, Sansa, Tyrion, Arya, Jon, Sam, Davos ) survived.

  • jeebus2121
    jeebus2121 27 days ago

    You were correct, but I fear your explanation for why--which is sophisticated, steeped in the show's lore, and equals parts poetic/logical--is vastly more well thought out than the actual writers' process, where they probably just went "let's subvert expectations".

  • beanie0112
    beanie0112 27 days ago

    My thing is that since the 3ER has taken over his mind and body Bran’s consciousness either 1) no longer exists, 2) has been pushed down into a “sunken place” where all he can do is helplessly witness the 3ER control him, or 3) is allowed to co-pilot his mind and body with the 3ER.
    If either 1) or 2) is the case could the now six (🤦‍♂️) kingdoms really trust such an entity to be king if it’s willing to do either of those things to Bran’s consciousness? 🤷‍♂️

    Your breakdown/analysis of the qualities it takes to rule/be powerful was pure genius! I had an epiphany while watching your video. Bran becoming the 3 eyed ravin can be compared to becoming enlightened. Losing one’s ego identity which is why him becoming the King and leading the people in goodness makes the most sense.

    I'm one of the few people who actually enjoyed the ending. It was a bit rushed, I'll give it that. And I think the whole Night-King storyarch's ending was a bit anticlimactic. And the death of Cercei too. But all in all, happy with the outcome.

  • s0bad

  • Chris

    Congrats on the prediction. I enjoyed your video even though I didn't like your argument for the overarching interpretation of whole of GOT. I hated it even more in execution. So I'll revisit my oft repeated claim: maybe this ending could have worked with an entire season to flesh it out. But the complete disregard for the nature of the threat from the white walkers I think undermines the entire story. The final season just turned them (and so the NK) into a zombie apocalypse, which they never were, and certainly never were thematically, ever in the series. Such a shame. Such a damn shame.

  • Brian Williams
    Brian Williams 29 days ago

    Wow, an incredible prediction. I have been pushing back against the toxicity towards king Bran. I was pleasantly surprised by that reveal (although I did not like Columbus Arya and Democracy Sam). You pointed out that Bran fits the wounded healer archetype, but also consider that Danerys arc was to break the wheel, then who sits upon the wheel? Bran the broken in a wheel chair. Also most toxic people are just whining, still half mad about star wars, they include no real reasoning... I instantly realized that Bran although unexpected, fit the Arthurian archetype by having been trained by a wizard mentor, the previous three eyed raven. Jon Snow had no such wizard mentor and instead has a christ like martyr thing going on. Bran the broken also calls to mind the Greek idea of a philosopher king being the most perfect form of govt. How nice would it be if the president of the USA actually knew what to do to help the most people the best way... I say this in 2019 :(

    As for Columbus Arya and Democracy Sam. The show borrowed from medievel history and that made it come alive, but to lean that hard into our history seriously compromised the lore. I'm eagerly awaiting game of parliament, the wig party edition /s. Then Maester Franklin ties a key to a kite and well, you know the rest. BOO! Giving the sailing west hook to Greyworm as a tentative plan after Naath would've been fine. Arya should be master of whispers, she wouldn't be done protecting Bran.

    2:20 now that he says that well. It sort of makes sense. The ring was forged on the fires of Mount Doom, and it is later destroyed in the same fires that made it. In Westeros, Balerion the black dread made the iron throne with the swords of Aegon's fallen enemies, and Drogon destroys it in the end, making the stories sort of parallel. The fires that made these two objects are the fires that unmake them in the end

      I can't recall perfectly but I remember They asked Sean to do a certain accent and he basically said "Cant." And so trained the family to match his accent instead and made THAT the North westeros accent. But the younger kids couldn't really pull it off and to prevent endless takes they just told them to speak normally.
