He's not the boy we knew.
So what do you think - could you outfox him?
In Season 7, episode 4, "The Spoils of War," Baelish barraged Bran with niceties, suggesting he understood the hell he'd been through since leaving Winterfell as a boy, and was on his side, blah blah blah bogusness. It's just this whole idea that Bran has become a much smaller part of the character's brain, when before 100% of his head was taken up with being Bran Stark. Instead, it's nearly certainly just a tip of the hat to the character, as the individual in the background undoubtedly looks like her. "He acts utterly differently, and really any semblance of personality he used to have has gone". He had only done a one-day TV commercial shoot before "GoT".
Now that the show is in its seventh season, it's increasingly unlikely that we'll actually get to see the character.
A central character for three seasons, she was murdered alongside son Robb and his heavily pregnant wife Talisa during the show's most notorious episode, The Rains of Castamere, famously known amongst fans as "The Red Wedding" due to their brutal end.
Okay, but is there any of the old Bran in there?
Of course, given the show's history, sometimes the bad guys win - and if Sansa and Littlefinger are indeed conspiring against Jon in some way, this scenario could end badly for either Arya or Sansa, depending on who has the upper hand. The boy who was stating to fall for Meera? Despite trying to hold it together, Littlefinger is clearly shaken by Bran's words, and seems to imply that Littlefinger's days are numbered.
Just pay very close attention to Bran.
And being a supercomputer means that family reunions aren't what they're cracked up to be. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love, the illusions. This one comes courtesy of an eagle-eyed Redditor who thinks Lady Stoneheart aka Catelyn Stark made a cameo in "The Spoils of War". He asks Arya's name, and later on she becomes No-One.
Sunday night's episode of Game of Thrones almost saw Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) being burned to a crisp, only to be "saved" at the last second by Bronn (Jerome Flynn).
Now that Bran has been reunited with Sansa and Arya, it will be interesting to see how their dynamic changes. "Have both my siblings gone completely mad?"
Yes, back in season three Littlefinger was having a private conversation with the equally mysterious Varys, with Littlefinger admitting that he knows Varys is spying on him and that he'd killed the informant. It was so neat to say something that cool.
You'll be delighted to know that there are no spoilers in this post. As he points out, "Bran is never going to be a warrior".
Arya's acquisition of this illustrious weapon has major implications.
"Bran's got information on the origin of the White Walkers", he said, "which ultimately is the biggest threat - this massive apocalypse looming". They've each been through a lot in their time apart.
There had to be a sense of mystery and wisdom to him.
