The Bran Quote From The GoT Premiere That Has People Talking SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/nE2uhv-ZCSw : The characters that are still alive for the final chapter of Game of Thrones have gone through some monumental personal evolutions, but no character has had quite as shocking a transformation as Bran Stark, whose metamorphosis into the Three-Eyed Raven rendered him more cryptic than ever at the start of Game of Thrones season 8. A peculiar line Bran uttered during the season premiere struck viewers as incredibly odd, and people are debating its true meaning.
“What are you doing out here?”
“Waiting for an old friend.”
The final moments of the Thrones season 8 premiere seemed to confirm that the not-so-dear pal he was anticipating meeting again was Jaime Lannister. Way back in the first episode, Jaime shoved Bran out of a Winterfell tower window when Bran caught him and Cersei in the heat of passion. When the two spotted one another from opposite ends of the Winterfell courtyard in the present, it marked the first time they had laid eyes on each other since the incident that left Bran paralyzed.
It seemed he sprinkled in some signature Stark sass in sarcastically calling Jaime an “old friend.” But some Game of Thrones fans have a different idea about what Bran’s comment truly meant.
One theory suggests that Bran wasn’t talking about Jaime Lannister at all. Instead, Bran may have been referring to another man whom he hasn’t seen in years, who also betrayed him and his family: Theon Greyjoy.
Once he rescues his sister, Yara, from their uncle Euron, Theon admits that he doesn’t want to go back to the Iron Islands and hold strong. It would be simple to wait out the war between the White Walkers and the humans of Westeros on a land that the monsters can’t reach, but Theon has other plans: he wants to head to Winterfell, where Theon was a ward to Ned Stark. Theon wants to fight alongside the Starks, his second family.
Theon is absolutely an old friend of the Stark family. Theon ultimately bit the hand that fed him, however, turning his back on Robb Stark during the War of the Five Kings and taking his father Balon Greyjoy’s side to carry out an invasion of the North. Things were made even worse when Theon tricked the people of Winterfell into thinking he burned Bran and his younger brother Rickon alive after the Greyjoys seized control of the castle.
Theon’s betrayal sent him on a terrifying journey, which saw him become the tormented servant-slash-pet of Ramsay Bolton before escaping by the skin of his teeth. It’s little wonder that now, after having gone through everything he did following his double-crossing of the Starks, Theon would want to right his wrongs with the Starks.
