NightStark Posted May 6, 2014 Share Posted May 6, 2014 (edited) Well if we're going to ask insulting questions that insinuate the other person is an idiot: You do understand that there is a difference between a book and a television show, right? And that show!Jojen refers to show!Jojen while book!Jojen refers to book!Jojen? And that things which occurred in the books but not the show are things which occurred in the books but not the show? You could have simply answered "Yes." As in, "I think it's plausible that Jojen, a complete stranger, was able to instantly convince Bran to risk his life on this absurd quest; yet Jon, with the baseline of already knowing and trusting Bran, would be unable to be convinced to merely step aside." I'm trying to show you that Bran etc. fearing that Jon will stop them is not a show construct. Jojen gains Bran's trust in the show by mentioning the three eyed raven even before Bran does. Even in the books they don't want him or anyone to know. CH doesn't tell Sam 'You can tell his brother but nobody else..he'll be fine with it.' He says 'no seekers'. None. Do you honestly think that Jon, knowing what is beyond the Wall is going to let Bran wander around there just because he tells him; 'I saw a three eyed raven in a vision'? Honestly? Would that would convince you in that situation? Jon might trust Bran completely but there's a point where everyone says; 'No I'm not going to let that happen'. Show Bran impresses upon Sam that he has to go beyond the Wall and presumably Sam relayed this to Jon but Jon still said he would have stopped them if he hadn't been injured.
