    Kind of like my wife picking a restaurant. She knows where she wants to eat but wants me to suggest it first!

    Oy, I was so young (compared to now . . . kind of . . . in my own head).

    man... you can make the argument that the biggest monster of everyone on the show was freaking Bran and thus, in a world that was filled with the most wretched of people, he was the MOST fitting person to sit on the highest throne.

    Think about it... he let Hodor die to protect him... he let the majority of the Dothraki and Unsullied armies die against the Night King, he probably only told Theo he was a good man so he would try and attack the Night King, giving Bran the extra few precious seconds needed for Arya to kill the Night King and then he KNEW that a Dani was going to unleash a freaking holocaust of biblical proportions over an entire city and said NOTHING just so that he could be King. And he did all of that with the most smug look of all time on his face the entire time.

    That dude is a straight up piece of human and raven garbage.

    Yep. LOL. I am sure though Bran didn’t reason the same way you or I do though. To Bran everything that has happened or will happened he sees at once. To him everything is a living history. So I don’t think regular morals apply.

    Having said that is he going to stare his subjects to death!?

    or maybe Bran's just full of crap about being able to change the future, saw the one with his on the throne and said screw y'all!

    I mean, it's not like he never lied before, right? Earlier in the season he said he didn't want anything... and wasn't even freaking Bran. Now he is?

    And can anyone explain to me why Bran needs a Master of Whisperers... if he knows everything?!

    Man... Season 8 was just a steaming pile of horse-manure.

    That would have been a fun twist but it is consistent with what the original three eyed raven was.

    Could you imagine had that been the story and they revealed Bran was evil and manipulating everyone from day one?

    I still enjoyed the last season but it was rushed and unnecessarily IMO.

    I never liked Bran as the raven anyway. I think it’s a convenient way to get yourself out of a writing jam to have a character like that. Supposedly all-knowing but never really taking full advantage of it. Add to that the total bore they made him and it was easily the most boring and confusing part of the whole story.

    If they wanted to have more magic, they should have just expanded Melisandre. At least we got to see her naked. :)

    I thought he could only go back, not forward. Can you all confirm he knew what would happen?
