    The problem with Bran being king narrative wise

    Bran is the Fisher King. He protects Westeros from the threats and Tyrion along with his successor Hands are the ones doing the ruling. It’s more of technocracy lead by a benevolent god.

    What was the purpose of Jon Snow?

    Jon’s never coming back south of the Wall just like Frodo’s never coming back to Middle Earth. Bran didn’t get a happy ending. He even says that he doesn’t wish his fate on anyone. He lives in the past and is fused to an alien entity.

    Because they weren’t interested in Bran Stark. I’m sure they felt developing was useless if they were going to fuse him with the world’s memory so we’re kinda supposed to go off faith that he learned everything he needed to about ruling from there. It’s even why Tyrion says that Bran knowing the history of the world will make him a good ruler. It’s the smart, scholarly types that should rule like Bran, Tyrion and Sam not the macho-warriors like Jon Snow and Robert Baratheon.

    I think that’s actually the point. Bran’s Council is made up of outcasts. Sans Bron, it is the meek who inherit the earth.

    Not exactly true. Isaac has mentioned that Bran exists there and the Bran parts of his brain activate when he’s around friends and family. Its still Bran’s consciousness though. It’s like the difference between Cat and LS. LS is Cat but less. TER! Bran is Bran but more.

    Bran does receive ruling advice though. His first chapter is a lesson from Ned Stark on death, justice and mercy. And Book 2 Bran rules Winterfell with Maester Luwin advising him. I think King Bran the Broken would’ve been more obvious if the 5 year timeskip happened or the characters aged as fast as he wanted them too.

    Because of Jon’s ending and Daenerys’ murder.

    So Lord of the Rings with Jon as Frodo

    This is more like Benioff and Weiss’ context with GRRM’s endpoints for the MCs. For all intents and purposes, Bran is the God-Emperor of Man that’s probably using his powers to run a police state to keep the nobles in line just like his mentor, Bloodraven

    Return of the King. The rightful king returns to the throne and all is made right. Now if you’re talking about King Jon and Queen Dany but evil then that’s different.

    Not if you go with the plausible theory that the Lord of Light and Bran are the same being. I mean who said that the Lord of Light was talking in the present to his followers? He could be transmitting messages from the future. And it’s noted that Bloodraven can see Melisandre when she tries to look in her flames.

    Actually, you’re wrong here. Sansa would pass the Stark name off to her sons. It’s already happened in the past with previous Starks and it happened with the Lannisters too. Bael Bard had a bastard with the Last Stark’s daughter who he legitimized as a Stark to inherit for him. All the current Starks and Lannisters are descended from Brandon the Builder and Lann the Clever via the female line although I could always see Sansa marrying a Karstark thereby keeping her line pure wolf.
  13. Isaac confirmed that GRRM told Benioff and Weiss that Bran will be king so don’t waste your time if you think that a plot point could get you to quit the books. It was the intention from the beginning. It is Brandon Stark’s story.

    The only one of those that is actually unconventional is Jon turning dark but that’s essentially what happened with Dany instead.

    Who were the alternatives? Other white men? Daenerys? She’s a white woman. Not much change besides Bran is physically disable so there’s a bit of representation there for a group that isn’t normally represented. Actually if you look at who is ruling Westeros at the end, it’s all outcasts. A cripple, a dwarf, a fat coward, a lowborn smuggler, a mercenary rogue and a lady knight.
