Share your thoughts on the 'Game of Thrones' premiere.
I don't know if they're following this in the TV series, but in the books, Robert, Stannis and Renly Baratheon's grandmother was a Targaryen princess. This would have made Robert the next in line to the throne if all of Aerys's descendants had been wiped out.
Oh yeah they definitely aren't doing that in the show
Bran is the only character alive, at the time of the story, who can use the sacred groves for their intended purpose; therefore, the White Walkers want to get rid of him. They might not know how disorganized the resistance is, and even if they did, it might be advised anyway to spoil any possible advantage.
The dragon scenes were awesome.
Dragonkeeper15...what "sacred groves"?
@Beatissima I wouldn't bet on it, since that scene happened before Melisandre was even introduced. Remember how people were certain that Supreme Leader Snoke from Star Wars was actually Darth Plagueis, since his theme sounded very similar to the music from the scene in Revenge of the Sith where Palpatine tells Anakin the story of Darth Plagueis?
@Arwen777 it's where the weirwood trees are.
Can someone please answer my question up above about the NK and Bran? Thanks:)
Sure. Bran is not the Night King because that theory has been stupid since day one. David and Dan have always said that they have approached him not as a person, but as Death. They said that they don't plan to have him talk because it would humanise him too much and therefore diminish him, so revealing him to be one of the main characters would be like doing that a thousand times over.
This is s good video discussing the connection between Bran and the Night King:
