Game of Thrones: Bran Stark’s fate sealed in devastating Robb Stark warning?
Game of Thrones saw its characters go through a number of rigorous journeys in its ten years on screen.
Perhaps the biggest journey of all was that of Bran Stark (played by Isaac Hempstead-Wright).
While the plucky young boy was forced into a wheelchair in the first episode of the series, the final saw him become king of Westeros.
On the way he was made into the new Three Eyed Raven by the previous, leaving him with all the power and knowledge of time and space.
This fate was teased in a small passage in the show’s first book, A Game of Thrones.
It details the young and able Bran diving over rooftops and exploring the topside of Winterfell with his cunning and pseudo-parkour.
The scenario left him looking over the courtyard and streets of the city, gazing at the people of Winterfell with a new perspective, unseen by all others.
The passage concludes: “‘It made him feel like he was lord of the castle, in a way even Robb would never know.’”
Fans of the show will know that Robb Stark (Richard Madden) was eventually brutally murdered at the Red Wedding.
And fans of the franchise have pointed out on the Game of Thrones Reddit that this passage directly corresponds with both of the characters’ fates.

One viewer pointed out: “This is really cool foreshadowing for his future abilities. It seems he was into voyeurism even before his fall.”
And while it certainly does give a nod towards his future abilities, it also sheds light on his supposed final resting place on the throne – in a way Robb never knew.
To add to this, Robb never even saw himself as a true king, or king of the north, as he was slaughtered at his wedding, giving the passage two meanings.
Recently viewers also pointed out some pieces of the first book which doomed Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) from the beginning.
One passage saw Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) telling his small council to kill Daenerys when she was just a teenager.
During the discussion, he declares: “‘A knife, perhaps. A good sharp one, and a bold man to wield it.’”
With another sentence reading: “‘Is it not wiser, even kinder, that Daenerys Targaryen should die now so that tens of thousands might live?’”
This obviously coincides with Daenerys’ final scenes, which saw her being stabbed by Jon Snow (Kit Harington) shortly after killing thousands of innocent people.
Fans still have two books to read when they eventually come out, so there still may be some secrets to find.
Game of Thrones is available on digital download now.
