It is true, the last season of the hit HBO series was plagued with bugs that the fans continue to not forgive. And one of the most questioned was to see who was on the throne, with the seven kingdoms in his charge, as many wanted to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and even Tyrion Lannister (Peter bad griesbach), but not, choose to Bran as king was the worst decision in ‘Game of Thrones’ and we explain the reasons.
Despite being criticized, Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), commented that this final was the one that I had in mind George RR Martin, writer of the books that was the basis for the series. As it has not yet been published, it is possible that this final change in the version that we submit to the author, but that remains to be seen.
When we say that choosing to Bran as the king was the worst decision for the series don’t just mean that it was best to make all happy, if not that the history of this character and what it means for the story what do incompetent and dangerous for the position. To understand this point we need to understand the history of the Crow of three eyes, previous who describes him as a tortured person, being old and living stuck, almost rooted to the wooden chair.
It is possible that the Children of the Forest having a history more rooted to this character, as they were in Westeros way before the first men, when they became a problem arose the White Walkers, who got out of control. That is to say, that if these ancient creatures still have a link with Bran, it could be the start of another war.
Another detail to take into account is that the producers David Benioff and DB Weiss ran out of ideas after the fifth season, were travelling without any book of Martin as a guide. If a minor character was important and had to be put aside, because they did not know all that was in the author’s head, although ask was not very difficult.
The problem was, that if you really Martin wanted this to end, the story told in the series not led us to this conclusion, it is convincing, it feels forced, as that is the “right thing”. His story and character were not as well developed as the rest. It seems that does not deserve it as others, and that is what most hurts. Clear that there is still hope in the books.
