It was… intense.
From the traumatic deaths of Theon Greyjoy and Lyanna Mormont to the moment that Arya Stark violently killed the Night King, there was a lot to process.
Clare Stephens and Holly Wainwright debrief on the latest episode of Game of Thrones on the Mamamia Recaps podcast. Post continues after audio…
But although we finally know the fate of the Night King and the Army of the Dead, we still have a lot of questions about what went down at the Battle of Winterfell.
After all, the episode was so bloody dark, no one could see anything.
One of our biggest questions we have is about Bran Stark.
Earlier in the season, it was decided that Bran would be stationed underneath Winterfell’s Weirwood Tree as bait in an attempt to lure the Night King. But during a conversation with Theon Greyjoy during the early stages of the battle, Bran suddenly warged into some nearby ravens.
Why did he warg? And where the heck did he go?
As expected, fans of the show have come up with a number of theories about where Bran went during the Battle of Winterfell. Here's just some of them:
Bran was trying to lure the Night King.
One of the most popular theories among fans is that Bran was warging in an attempt to lure the Night King to the Weirwood.
As it's easier for the Night King to track Bran while he's in his ~psychic space~, there's a chance Bran may have been warging to increase his effectiveness as bait.
Other fans have pointed out that Bran was simply warging so that he could stay one step ahead of the Night King.
"[Bran] was just keeping an eye on the Night King's whereabouts," one Reddit user wrote. "He stopped his warg when the Night King showed up to him."
