If you breathed a sigh of relief last season because Bran Stark and his dumb visions fucked off into some part of Westeros that we were lucky enough not to have to deal with, then I’m sorry to tell you that you’re about to be very disappointed. Isaac Hempstead Wright, who plays Bran, has confirmed that Bran will be back for Game of Thrones Season 6. WHY, GOD, WHY?!
From The Irish Examiner:
“I can’t say a lot but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran. He has some interesting visions,” he teased.
“I missed the whole of the last season because it was right in the middle of my exams, so I didn’t have the time to watch it. But I’m looking forward to getting with some friends and binge-watching it all.”
That’s fine, Isaac – please don’t say anymore, anyway. I’d like to live in blissful ignorance of the fact that we’re going to have to deal with your painfully boring “visions” that are completely unnecessary and not at all helpful. BORING.
I know that probably seems harsh because he’s a kid, and I’ve got nothing against the actor – it’s the character that I can’t stand. I mean, I haven’t read GRRM’s books, but I hear he’s just as bad in print, too. Make it stop! Why is it even necessary to bring him back when there are so many other, more interesting loose ends that need tying? As far as I’m concerned, Bran could be lost in the wilderness forever and I need no further explanation.
Do you like Bran? If so, please, please explain why. I need to know!
