    Are the starks finished?

    None of that has anything to do with the books. It isn't even remotely like that. This is a pure D&D creation.

    All of the textual evidence points to that.

    They killed Jojen and fed him to Bran for him to gain power in that weirwood tree.

    Do you consider cannibalism as good?

    You know how symbolism works, right? This is Bran starting to savor the taste of blood just as Aemon described how he feared ravens savored the taste. It's to distinguish the two types of ravens. Those that eat the flesh and those that eat grain. Eating the flesh gives them strength, but there are those that resist it. Bran's three-eyed crow and the children of the forest there are evil.

    I added the Jojen paste scene. “It had a bitter taste, though not so bitter as acorn paste. The first spoonful was the hardest to get down. He almost retched it right back up. The second tasted better. The third was almost sweet. The rest he spooned up eagerly. Why had he thought that it was bitter?”

    "Most ravens will eat grain, but they prefer flesh. It makes them strong, and I fear they relish the taste of blood. In that they are like men ... and like men, not all ravens are alike. Doves and pigeons can also be trained to carry messages, though the raven is a stronger flyer, larger, bolder, far more clever, better able to defend itself against hawks ... yet ravens are black, and they eat the dead, so some godly men abhor them." -Aemon Targaryen Jojen paste “It had a bitter taste, though not so bitter as acorn paste. The first spoonful was the hardest to get down. He almost retched it right back up. The second tasted better. The third was almost sweet. The rest he spooned up eagerly.

    If you were writing an evil people that lied, would you call it the False Tongue? Crows and ravens are cousins. The Three-eyed crow is Brynden Rivers, also known as Bloodraven. He is simply known as three-eyed raven in the show.

    Leaf called it the True Tongue. A language ravens also speak. "All crows are liars." -Old Nan

    Wait, your argument is that because they themselves call their own language the True Tongue, they speak truth and we should believe them?

    People keep wondering why he can't seem to finish his story. Maybe this is why. He has an end he wants to get to, but he can't get there logically. So he keeps throwing in these secondary characters to try to get the characters get there. However, the cost is that he lost his way in the multitude of characters. Bran was no longer the central point he had planned when he was going to be a deposed king because he couldn't logically get him there in the first book. Even his outline sorta magically placed him there without an explanation as to how. So here we are, five books in and more focus on Jon, very little focus on Bran. With this is him showing his skill at leading and now he will rise to power from Lord Commander to king in the North to what? His story progression gets cut off? For Bran whom readers barely have any attachment to? GRRM may be good at weaving words, but he has demonstrated a completely inability to write a proper character arc progression and his ending will demonstrate this. At this point it makes it seems as he's just deceiving us about his characters, Bran is as much a conspiracy against the readers as he is against the realm. He should probably go back and revise his ending to fit what he's created, but he won't. I think he's too stubborn. One thing is for sure, he is going to hear the backlash of Bran being king after the next episode.

    D&D didn't know by their own admission the ending of the story until between season 3 and season 4.

    We are five books in with the story so derailed at this point, Bran as king is a joke. Those paragraphs you say are foreshadowing is also shallow to non-existent. In his original manuscript he was to be deposed by the end of book 1. That's long gone.

    Watch the reaction of watchers to Bran being king at the end of AGOT. That would pale in comparison to the reaction of book readers.
