Warning: Book spoilers [Dance with Dragons]...
Do u remember Jojen Reed? (Son of Howland Reed and Meera Reed’s brother)
Does anyone agree on the Jojen Paste theory where Bran eats Jojen?
Let me know your thoughts.
In the books, the Great Other is mentioned as a enemy to R'hllor, the god of light, by Melisandre. Followers of R'hllor believe that there are only two gods, R'hllor and the Great Other, who wage an eternal war over the fate of the world. All forces of darkness, cold, and death are believed to be only servants to the Great Other. Melisandre refers to the Others as the "cold children" of the Great Other. The Great Other has never been mentioned by any Westerosi although all know of the Others from legends. According to Melisandre, sleep is a little death, dreams are whisperings of the Other who would drag everyone into his eternal night.
But we see Bloodraven and Bran:There he sat, listening to the hoarse whispers of his teacher. 'Never fear the darkness, Bran.' The lord's words were accompanied by a faint rustling of wood and leaf, a slight twisting of his head. "The strongest trees are rooted in the dark places of the earth. Darkness will be your cloak, your shield, your mother's milk. Darkness will make you strong."
This ties the Last Greenseer, Brynden Rivers, the Old Gods, and Bran Stark to the theme of darkness that draws The Great Other into opposition with R'hllor. And Melisandre sees a vision in her flames: At the Wall, when gazing into the fires, Melisandre sees a wooden face, corpse white, a thousand red eyes, and a boy with a wolf's head beside him. She thinks to herself that they must be the Great Other's champions, as King Stannis is hers.
A wooden face, therefore a face of a weirwood, a symbol of the old gods, and the three-eyed raven, which are both closely related to Bran. A corspe white face, which Bran has in the books,or could be referring to the white wood of the weirwoods. A thousand eyes, which would be the eyes of the weirwoods, and in the Dunk and egg books, you will find:
'How many eyes does lord Bloodraven have? A thousand, and one.’
A boy with a wolf's head, which would be Bran，because his sigil is the direwolf. This could mean that either Bran, or Bloodraven could be the great other, if there was such a thing.
Also, Melisandre thinks that dreams are whisperings of the great other, so that it might be true.
Another theory is that the great other, as it is called, is not evil. Perhaps, Bran or Bloodraven will be the ones to kill Melisandre, because the red god in the books can easily be portrayed as evil, and as Jon describes it, "the hungry red flame."
It can be possible that the great other has nothing to do with the other, or the night king, because the great other is not heard from in westeros, where the others live,and it can just be a name, and for all we know, the great other has done nothing evil...yet.
I'm looking forward to Stannis and Melisandre vs Bloodraven and Bran.

In my opinion practically house Stark has extinct with the death of Rickon. The only alive mebers of the Stark family are:
Jon Snow: who is not even a stark
Sansa Stark: who is a woman so she and her children will take her husband's name (this is the Westerosi tradition according to Missandrei)
Arya Stark: same with her sister, eventhough I don't think she will ever get married
Bran Stark: even if he is a man I don't think that he is planning to get married or to have children. I think that he is not interested anymore to things that prove that he is human and no three-eye raven. Also I just realized that he has also drop his family name from his tittle (check it out in Fandom wiki, just write his name)
What's your opinion???
Am I right right or wrong???
I just want you to be objective....plz ;-)
Bran is the true villain. Even if they establish him as a hero, I still see him as a fucking villain. Here's some reasons (AND SOME OF THESE ARE JOKES PEOPLE REMINDER):
Watches a lovely incest couple have sex
Disobeys his mother's commands by keeping on climbing
Doesn't care about Luwin's geography lessons
Kinda gets Rodrik Cassel and those two farmer boys killed
Snaps the sweet Locke his neck
Wargs into poor Hodor most of the times
Gets Jojen killed
Let's Night King touch him because they're a nice couple
Gets Leaf & Three-Eyed Raven killed
Gets Summer and Hodor killed
Gets Meera nearly killed and uses her as slave
Doesn't care when Meera leaves
Betrays good old Petyr
Can't be lord of anything, becomes king though
Can't decide whether he wants to fuck Night King or not
In mid battle just flies some ravens for no reason
Watches Theon die
Wants Daenerys to go mad
Doesn't inform anyone about the villains their plans
Forces Tyrion to be Hand in a jokingly conversation
Has Pod escort him to talk 5 seconds to his council
Is probably going to fail as a king but decides to be king anyways
Is an emotionless robot
Bran Stark is the worst. I hated him anyway.
