    Did Bran know all the time he is the future king?

    Isaac says it's Bran just with extra memories smashed into his head.
  2. Sansa isn't going crazy. She's normal and will be the Queen of Winter. Arya will eventually be brought back from the brink as will Tyrion. But I don't think Daenerys is going crazy. She'll have the Stannis story where she has to pick between what she wants and innocent lives. She'll make the wrong choice.
  3. Jon's not the most morally upright character in the books. There are several POVs like Barristan, Davos and Brienne that beat him in that regard. That said, the Meereense Blot already told us what the purpose of their ruling chapters are for which GRRM agreed with. They're to explore their values not to train them. At the end of the day, Jon and Dany are just teens and Bran's got thousands of years of wisdom behind him.
  4. Because Jon is going to be condemned for murdering Daenerys and Bran will have no choice but judge his brother. He'll look into Jon's eyes and realize that he can't execute him so he doesn't deserve to die and sends him to the Night's Watch. Jon= Bloodraven/Maester Aemon Daenerys= Aenys Blackfyre Bran = Egg I suppose it'll be Bran because he has magic powers and the right connections. Remember that when GRRM came up with these endings, Bran was supposed to end the story as an adult

    Nah. It's really obvious that the Last Hero is Brandon the Builder. Brandon pre-dates the Long Night while the Night's King comes into the story after the Wall goes up. He is at most a descendant of Brandon the Builder (potentially even his grandson). That's if the Night's King even existed at all. The one from the books. We're even getting a prequel Spinoff with Brandon the Builder as the protagonist.

    That’s just a theory not confirmed truth.

    I mean Benjen used to visit Winterfell. He was there at the beginning of the story.

    Jon's a red herring. It's Bran. He's first character that GRRM created, he's the beginning POV, he's on the path to transcending humanity and he's king of Westeros at the end. Also, he's the last son of Ned Stark. The show would put Jon on the throne if it was GRRM's plan. I understand the pushback. Fans don't like Bran but they like Jon because he's the typical escapist hero. Handsome, brooding, good swordsman, gets the girl and the hidden son of the rightful king. But Jon and Daenerys are purposefully there so you don't look at Bran. Also Bran wouldn't have a short lifespan. 1) Bloodraven is 125 years old despite being a greenseer. 2) The Three Eyed Raven on the show is over 1,000 years old and had to be killed. 3) And Bran can begin a second life as another human being considering his considerable power. All he needs to do is find a greenseer potential and snatch his body when he dies. 4) Bran doesn't need an heir. He'll just eternally be king until he decides to not be. 5) Bran's heirs can be the descendants of Sansa if he can't have kids.

    Stannis touched the Painted Table. "Look at it, onion knight. My realm, by rights. My Westeros." He swept a hand across it. "This talk of Seven Kingdoms is a folly. Aegon saw that three hundred years ago when he stood where we are standing. They painted this table at his command. Rivers and bays they painted, hills and mountains, castles and cities and market towns, lakes and swamps and forests . . . but no borders. It is all one. One realm, for one king to rule alone." "One king," agreed Davos. "One king means peace." "Dragons and darker things," said Leo. "The grey sheep have closed their eyes, but the mastiff sees the truth. Old powers waken. Shadows stir. An age of wonder and terror will soon be upon us, an age for gods and heroes.-AFFC "One realm, one god, one king!" cried Lady Melisandre. The queen's men took up the cry, beating the butts of their spears against their shields. "One realm, one god, one king! ...ONE REALM, ONE GOD, ONE KING!"- ADWD "The bleeding star bespoke the end," he said to Aeron. "These are the last days, when the world shall be broken and remade. A new god shall be born from the graves and charnel pits."-TWOW ” Then Euron lifted a great horn to his lips and blew, and dragons and krakens and sphinxes came at his command and bowed before him. “Kneel, brother,” the Crow’s Eye commanded. “I am your king, I am your god. Worship me, and I will raise you up to be my priest.” “Never. No godless man may sit the Seastone Chair!” “Why would I want that hard black rock? Brother, look again and see where I am seated.” Aeron Damphair looked. The mound of skulls was gone. Now it was metal underneath the Crow’s Eye: a great, tall, twisted seat of razor sharp iron, barbs and blades and broken swords, all dripping blood. Impaled upon the longer spikes were the bodies of the gods. The Maiden was there and the Father and the Mother, the Warrior and Crone and Smith … even the Stranger. They hung side by side with all manner of queer foreign gods: the Great Shepherd and the Black Goat, three-headed Trios and the Pale Child Bakkalon, the Lord of Light and the butterfly god of Naath. And there, swollen and green, half-devoured by crabs, the Drowned God festered with the rest, seawater still dripping from his hair.- TWOW GRRM also writes backwards and there are things in TWOIAF and Fire and Blood Volume 1 that foreshadow the ending of the series: In the beginning, the priestly scribes of Yin declare, all the land between the Bones and the freezing desert called the Grey Waste, from the Shivering Sea to the Jade Sea (including even the great and holy isle of Leng), formed a single realm ruled by the God-on-Earth, the only begotten son of the Lion of Night and MaidenMade-of-Light, who traveled about his domains in a palanquin carved from a single pearl and carried by a hundred queens, his wives. For ten thousand years the Great Empire of the Dawn flourished in peace and plenty under the God-on-Earth, until at last he ascended to the stars to join his forebears.-TWOIAF And then there's 11 year old Aegon called the Broken ascending the throne with a disfigured Lannister as Hand at the end of the Dance with Dragons. Both Aegon and Tyland were on opposite sides too.

    Yeah, I'd say this too. Benioff and Weiss don't care about Bran. They wouldn't put him on the throne unless they felt compelled to by GRRM's ending.

    The books also foreshadow a God-King taking the throne at the end. Read Tuf Voyaging to the end.

    The show also implies it. Bran: I remember what it felt like to be Bran Stark but I remember so much else now. It's not really about who is driving the bus. It's one being. It's still Bran but because Bran's memories make up a small portion of the current Bran, it's not really Bran at the same time. GRRM explores this in his other stories but there's a question of whether you are still you if your memories are missing or if you have other people's memories? That's why GRRM says Lady Stoneheart is not Cat and Resurrected! Beric is not Beric because they're missing pieces of themselves despite being one continuous conscience.

    He'll be king of Westeros. There's a reason that GRRM starts us with Bran's POV and not Jon's POV. And Bran doesn't need a claim because it's an election. All he needs is the right connections, being seen as Jon's heir and to wow people with his superpowers. Jon is Maester Aemon taking the black and invalidating his claim while Bran is Egg. If Jon was going to be king at the end of the books then the show would've had that happen.

    Before they worked on the show, yes.

    They knew the fate of the main characters or at least who would be king which is different from asking George to tell everything he knew about his story which is what they asked for..
