While we were all hoping that the Three-Eyed Raven would have more impact on the end of ‘Game of Thrones,‘ it turns out that his ending will mirror that in the novels. Now, we might see Bran Stark doing more with how George R.R. Martin closes out “A Song of Ice and Fire,” but the two primary reveals shown in the series finale are what is said to be slated to come.
This detail came directly from Hempstead Wright who plays Bran on the series:
” [Creators] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] told me there were two things [author] George R.R. Martin had planned for Bran, and that was the Hodor revelation, and that he would be King. So ‘that’s pretty special to be directly involved in something that is part of ‘George’s vision. It was a really nice way to wrap it up. “
It is easy to suspect that we’ll see Bran have more impact in the books with the power of the Three-Eyed Raven and how little he actually did on the show. Yes, he shared Jon Snow’s true parentage which was essential to doom the relationship which Daenarys and the once King Of The North had seen grow and used himself as bait for The Night King, but that really was just about it for the character.
I feel that his impact will be a little more pronounced in the book so while it will come out of left field with how Martin writes it, you can believe that the Nobles would crown him as the future King when all is said and done.
