Game of Thrones Gossip #59 Bran Stark

Welcome to my Game of Thrones Gossip, where us fanatics get the chance to discuss everything we love about this amazing TV series. I decided to do a whole series of these discussion posts that let us say everything we want and enjoy every second of it! Please feel free to comment fully and without restriction!

I have to warn you that it is important that you have seen all six seasons before reading any of these posts because these posts and blogger comments will be exploding spoilers all over the place. If you haven't watched the series and plan to, be warned that it's a bad idea to be here right now! I take no responsibility if you read on and things are spoiled for you.

Now I'm looking at the main characters introduced in season three, what our season two characters were doing and looking at all the bests bits. Enjoy the season three posts! 

Bran, Rickon, Osha and Hodor along with their wolves, have started the journey north to find Jon Snow at Castle Black. Bran still has strange dreams about The Three Eyed Raven but now he is dreaming about a boy not much older than him as well, who seems to be communicating with him in the dreams as if they are sharing the same one.

The boy in the dream is Jojen Reed and he has psychic gifts given like Bran by the Three Eyed Raven. He has used his gifts to connect in their dreams and along with his sister Meera has come looking for Bran to take him to the Three Eyed Raven himself. Jojen knows the way and Bran decides to trust him. Osha does not trust them especially when Jojen explains that Bran is a warg who can enter into the mind of animals, which explains all the wolf dreams that Bran has been having. Osha and Meera have different ideas on everything and tension between them keeps increasing, something Bran has to keep dealing with.

Jojen tells the group that they must go beyond The Wall to find the Three Eyed Raven as that is where Bran needs to go to learn what he needs. Osha refuses point blank to go past Castle Black, remembering how the man she loved was turned into a wight and tried to kill her, causing her to kill and burn him. Having escaped the north to flee these horrors, she has no intention of going back. 

They take shelter in a windmill to shelter from a coming storm which is badly upsetting Hodor. That is where the old man fleeing the wildlings goes, pursued by Jon and his wildling group. As the wildlings decide who will kill the man, Hodor starts making too much noise and a desperate Bran enters his head to quieten him, a move that shocks even Jojen as nobody can do that. Bran, through Summer witnesses Jon fighting the wildlings and uses his warg power on both wolves to assist in his escape. With Jon safely on his way to Castle Black, and the wildlings gone, Bran's group move on. Despite his sadness at leaving Jon behind, Bran is on a new mission but decides that Osha and Rickon should seek safety with Stark allies, the Umbers. It will be the final goodbye for the brothers.

Bran finally reaches The Wall and enters the Nightfort, where they settle down for the night. They are surprised by the appearance of Sam and Gilly who are coming from the north. Seeing Hodor, Bran and Summer, Sam identifies himself as a friend and colleague of Jon and he tries to urge Bran to come to the safety of Castle Black with him. Bran refuses and the company go their seperate ways. Bran, Jojen, Meera, Hodor and Summer go beyong The Wall.


  1. the parts of the story behind the wall really fascinated me much more than than anything that was happening around Winter Fell, King's Landing and those exotic lands where the Mother of Dragons was. guess in my mind that's where the heart of the whole series resided. Winter is coming and with it the monster behind the wall!

    1. Yeah I love the Night's Watch and the White much looking forward to the start of the last season of Game of Thrones! I do like the other stuff as well though!

  2. This kid has always annoyed me. I wouldn’t be sad to see him get decapitated or something. :)
