Is Bran Headed To Winterfell On 'Game Of Thrones'? Bring On The Reunions
The world is still in mourning since Sunday night's Game of Thrones after the death of Hodor, a true innocent who was taken from us too soon. Hodor was killed by White Walkers as he tried to "hold the door" while Meera dragged Bran to safety. But is he actually headed to safety? There are only a few possible places he might go to, so I would like to believe that Bran is headed to Winterfell on Game of Thrones.
Perhaps it's just wishful thinking on my part, because I still cherish the idea that one day all of the Stark children (remaining Stark children) will reunite at Winterfell. I don't even need to see them on the Iron Throne, the Lannisters can keep it. I just want them to have nice holidays together. Is that too much to ask, TV producers? Can't the Starks just enjoy a nice fire and roast turkey, maybe while singing Westeros-Christmas carols? And can we please stop killing direwolves? Of course, this is Game of Thrones, a show which showed us exactly what "flaying" was in graphic detail. So probably not.
The major evidence that Bran is headed to Winterfell is mostly just that I have no idea where else he might go. He's currently far north of The Wall, and most wildlings do not take kindly to strangers, so it's unlikely he'd stop to hang out with them. At least not for very long. Bran's logical progression would be to immediately head south, cross the wall, and make a pit stop at Castle Black, where he can be reasonably sure that the Brothers of the Night's Watch will look out for him.
He knows his brother Jon Snow is there, even if he doesn't know all the pertinent details, like Jon becoming Lord Commander and then getting assassinated, and then coming back to life, and then heading out to raise an army with Sansa. Because it looks like Jon's BFF number two, Dolorous Edd, is Castle Black's reluctant new Lord Commander, I can only assume that he will first, offer the poor kiddos protection, and second, tell them where Jon and Sansa are headed.
We've had a lot of sibling reunions so far this season, and since it is the only ray of sunshine keeping me going on Game of Thrones at the present, I am going to continue to fervently hope that we see all the Starks together again soon.
