And last but certainly not least is Bran. In the season eight premiere, Samwell Tarly comes across Bran sitting in the square at night. Bran explains that he’s waiting for an old friend. The next day, he’s in the same spot when Jaime Lannister arrives at Winterfell. In season one, Jaime drew a lot of attention when he stepped foot in Winterfell. He had bright blonde hair and wore the golden Lannister helmet. In season eight, his hair is dark, and he’s essentially disguised by a beard and gray cloak. He’s a changed man and no one recognizes him but Bran. In the first season, Bran was scared when Jaime looked at him, but now it’s Jaime who’s scared.
Which begs the question: How will Bran get even? Fingers crossed we find out when Game of Thrones returns with season eight, episode two on Sunday, April 21, at 9 p.m. PT/ET on HBO.
