    There was some quote I read earlier which, as someone who's not read the books, seemed to stand out in a pretty significant way (has a thing that I think is from the first book but, hey, you decide if you want to read it or not I'm not the boss of you)
    It was from probably the first book, with Old Nan telling Bran his 'favourite' story about Bran the Builder, and went off into how there seem to be so many different Brans that she merges them all into one in her head.
    I wish I could find it because the actual quote, in the context of his newly-discovered ability to... not shape the past, but be the influence that causes them to take place, it seems like a pretty significant thing.

    so what you're suggesting is that
    Bran is now going to leap from body to body within his own Bloodline, righting wrongs and hoping to one day leap home?

    They'll need Sam back for that.

    I hope the writers deviate from the books and make him Benjen. I don't care about GRRM's story, just give me emotional payoff!

    What about early on (season 1 or 2) at the wall when
    a dead guy reanimated and attacked commander mormount. They were pretty damn strong.

    Ah, I managed to find the quote:
    Thousands and thousands of years ago, Brandon the Builder had raised Winterfell, and some said the Wall. Bran knew the story, but it had never been his favorite. Maybe one of the other Brandons had liked that story. Sometimes Nan would talk to him as if he were her Brandon, the baby she had nursed all those years ago, and sometimes she confused him with his uncle Brandon, who was killed by the Mad King before Bran was even born. She had lived so long, Mother had told him once, that all the Brandon Starks had become one person in her head.

    Jesus fuck, no, please, no.
    I hate when time travel is added to fantasy / SF story. I like it when the story is from beginning ABOUT time travel, but i cannot think about even one series / book / movie / game, where plot was improved thanks to adding time travel. In most cases, it's the sign that author have no idea what to do next, at least in my opinion.

    Well in this case it's the opposite
    With Martin revealing that 'Hold the door' was always the origin, it's not that he or the showrunners ran out of ideas, it's that these things have always been in place. It's not that Bran's gone back and changed history, it's just closing a loop that he's responsible. He wouldn't be going back in time to make all these things happen, it's that he's always been that part in a set fate.
    But that's also probably not how it's going to transpire!

    @darleysam you messed up your spoiler

    Also
    Even if Bran goes back and changes things we'd already see the impact of those changes on the world based on the time travel rules put in place. I don't think we're at risk of any major story changing events, only MAYBE Bran Stark making Bran the Builder build the wall, which honestly isn't that egregious.
