*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Each Sunday, HBO waits 'til after the Game of Thrones episode airs to announce the episode title so as to prevent spoilers and theories about what lies ahead for our favorite characters. So when the streaming service announced that episode four was called "The Last of the Starks," we were a bit confused at first.
"How could it be the last of the Starks?!" we asked ourselves in a panic. If anything, the other houses are in way greater danger of going the way of House Mormont and being snuffed out. Targaryen only has Jon and Dany, Greyjoy only has Euron and Yara left...even Baratheon has only one remaining member, Gendry, now that Dany officially made him Lord of Storm's End.
But flashback to one of the first scenes in last night's episode, and it makes sense: In the great hall of Winterfell, everyone is carousing, being merry and playing drinking games. Tyrion sees Bran sitting in his wheelchair, though, and decides to chat. The gist of the convo (besides Bran being his creepy, robot-like self) is that Bran doesn't want to be Lord of Winterfell because he's no longer human. Being the three-eyed raven means he no longer has human desires like power. He's not going to have an heir, and he's most certainly not going to be Lord of Winterfell, he tells Tyrion.
