Was Bran Too Blunt With Sansa?


Finally reunited with sister Sansa after years in the wilderness, Bran's return to Winterfell was anti-climatic thanks to his stone-face and controversial way of revealing his powers of omnipresence. The trailer for season 7, episode 4 "The Spoils of War" hints at the possibility, as Arya is the last sibling to make it home.

Well, now we know a little more about what Bran was thinking and why he behaved that way, thanks to the actor who plays him.

Each week when we get a new Game of Thrones preview, I take some time to run through it a few times slowly (sometimes frame by frame) to see if I can find clues in the darkness.

"But Bran is now this tree-raven-magic thing". There has been speculation that Sansa is set to betray Jon Snow, running back to events at the end of the sixth season of #GameofThrones, when the conniving Littlefinger declared his love for Sansa, as well informing her of his dream to share the Iron Throne with her.

"I am the Three-Eyed Raven". Somebody put in front of him a massive encyclopedia of all of time and he's only opened page one. Luckily, because Bran had to learn to become the Three-Eyed Raven very quickly, there's no danger of that happening. However, Bran's response could be a sign she is going to betray Jon, because if she is, he will have seen it with his own eyes.
