    Two things come to mind that may imply he can see the future:

    1. "I'm waiting for an old friend." He knew Jaime was on his way to Winterfell.

    2. He gave Arya the Valyrian Steel dagger that she used to defeat the Night King.

    Number one could just be he was watching where Jaime was in the present and happened to notice him on the road leading to Winterfell.

    Number two could be random luck. Not really definitive either way.

    If he can see the past, he can effectively predict the future.

    There is a debate how clearly he can see the future. They say he can't see as clearly as the past and present. I thought I remembered an episode where Bran saw flashes earlier in the season that predicted the destruction of Baelor. I could be remembering it wrong but I remember that scene a few episodes before that one. I would have to go back and watch to be sure.

    I may be misremembering, but didn't he have flashes about Hodor's death before it happened? I know there were flashbacks and what have you to explain what "Hodor" meant, but that was an odd time traveling moment.

    Oh damn. I seem to remember that one too. Now I am questioning my memory now.

    didn't bran also have a vision of the dragon flying over king's landing?

    yeah... just looked it up. he did:

    https://winteriscoming.net/2018/02/17/speculation-what-does-cerseis-map-room-mean-for-kings-landing/

    Bran... good lord that was dumb.

    The writers trying to convince audience that he had the best story... when his story was so freaking dull and inconsequential that he wasn't even in the series for AN ENTIRE SEASON was ridiculous. Arya went from a little girl, to someone who could be anyone, and saved the entire world from the biggest threat humanity faced? Or Jon... you know... the rightful heir to the throne, who started life as a bastard, helped win the battle of the bastards, took back Winterfell, got killed and came back to life and then slayed the Mad Queen, the woman he loves all for the greater good? Or Sansa, who preserved through horror after horror to become stronger after each one and help win the battle of the bastards and take back Winterfell?

    No... it's Bran, who broke his back, could see the past and the future... did nothing with those powers and was so boring and inconsequential that he could completely disappear from entire seasons and it wouldn't make a difference. Maybe he's more interesting in the books and Martin will make him primal when/if he ever finishes, but the SHOW didn't write to that ending and it was beyond stupid for it to end the way it did.

    I actually enjoyed the character but thought he was underutilized. For me the worm did turn later on when he became the two eyed stare guy.

    Arya - she's not a lady, doesn't want to be a ruler - she is a wanderer
    Sansa - only interested in the North
    Jon - he is Ice, belongs to the Far North

    None of them would be good rulers of the 7, er 6 Kingdoms.

    Bran does break the wheel. No heirs, no lineage to pass the rule down. From that perspective, it is logical.

    But, in reality, Tyrion becomes the defacto ruler, probably the most qualified of the bunch.

    He knew they were going to crown him, so yes.

    Bran isn't even BRAN. So any logic goes right out the window at that point.

    Tyrion... the guy who thought Cersei would back his plan to fight walkers... then after she betrayed him, went back and thought she'd lay down her arms for her child's sake... then turned a dime on Varys because he trusted Dany and then Dany turned around and holocaust'd an entire city?! Tyron's got experience all right... AWFUL experience. They somehow made him the dumbest character of the bunch the last two seasons

    This isn’t conclusive and, as has been pointed out, being able to see ALL of the present makes it look like one sees the future because it’s easier to predict with that knowledge.

    Worse about Jaime and Cersei, all they had to do was more over about 10 feet and they would have been fine:

    Actually, pretty much if you remember his final scene.
