Season 8 predictions: The fate of every major 'Game of Thrones' character
Will your favorite character die in the final season? Here are our odds and expert predictions.
The new Three-Eyed Raven, Bran Stark's abilities to see into the past and "warg" into the minds of animals makes him a powerful ally in the fight for the Iron Throne. Played with quiet determination by English actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Bran is poised to greatly hone his powers in season 8.
The biggest question, however, is his connection to the Night King. One of the wildest theories is that Bran actually is the blue-eyed monster, having become trapped in the original big bad while trying to prevent their rise thousands of years earlier. It's a reach, sure, but we love the twisty possibilities of it all.
As for Bran's chances, we give him decent odds of surviving to the end. Killing him off would seem wasted, especially with so much of his powers still left to explore.
