*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Creepy Bran Stark did his best to be normal, but just like he said in the very first scene in last night’s premiere of Game of Thrones, there is literally no time for societal norms and gestures of good will.
Exhibit A: Instead of a warm welcome to Jon Snow, his “half-brother” (not really) that he grew up with for most of his life and whom he hasn’t seen since season one, Bran just stares blankly at him until Jon Snow bends down to kiss him on the head. It’s a very tender moment, but one that Bran completely brushes off in order to get something off his chest: Dany’s dead dragon Viserion has been turned into a White Walker ice dragon, and has burned down the Wall. (See? No time.)
Jon is still not unnerved though, and tells Bran he’s nearly a man now, to which Bran replies, “Almost.” So, what does that mean? Is he saying he hasn’t turned 18 yet (or whatever arbitrary age that males in Westeros are considered “men”)...or that he’s not really a man at all—he’s now fully transformed into the Three Eyed Raven? Probably the latter.
