The Game of Thrones finale is finally upon us, and while we have just mere hours to go until it airs fans can't, and won't, stop presenting new theories. The latest? Bran Stark is evil.
First, generally speaking, Bran Stark is suspicious. He's never provided an explanation about what he's up to, and why he is the three-eyed raven. On top of that, Bran didn’t bother informing anyone that Euron was planning to ambush Dany as she approached King’s Landing. For someone who “sees everything,” holding this back felt more than unhelpful. It felt intentional.
Second, Bran’s behaviour around the Night King’s death was just plain weird. We never found out what he was doing when he warged into those ravens, and I think he was actually trying to lure the Night King right to him so they could have a moment alone to be evil and sinister together. It's just not adding up, if you ask me.
Adding fuel to the "Bran is evil" fire, Vladimir Furdik, who plays the Night King, said that once the two "touched" Bran was changed.
A Game of Thrones fan is out here with more to add, and it all has to do with the behaviour of Dany's remaining dragon, Drogo, as he burned down King's Landing. In a nutshell, the theory speculates that Bran warged into Drogon and was actually the person responsible for murdering everyone. And there’s compelling proof!
The theory states that after hearing the bells, Dany actually intended to burn down just the Red Keep and kill Cersei. As the theorist points out, “Dany’s eyes are LOCKED onto the Red Keep when she takes off and she’s beelining for it for quite a while.”
Until, that is, the camera shows us Drogon’s shadow, an almost identical shot to Bran’s vision from an earlier season. “It’s only after we see the identical scene of Bran’s vision from an earlier season of Drogon’s shadow flying over King’s Landing that Drogon changes directions and starts lighting everyone up.”
