AlthoughGame of ThronesSeason 8 is still two years away, fans are now excited to witness the television show’s final chapter. Knowing George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Fire and Ice” novel series, which the show is based on, viewers are expecting to see a lot of gory deaths.

In fact, it is now being teased that some of the major characters are about to meet their demise. Also, some wonder what will be stored in Bran Stark’s (Isaac Hempstead Wright) storyline. Will he remain as a supporting character or will this be his time to shine?

Bran's possible big return

According to Culturess, Bran continued to deliver cryptic lines in the previous season. He stayed as a supporting role and never had his own storyline.

The television show’s seventh season turned really big and explosive with the presence of the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) and dragons, but it seemed like Bran wasn’t part of the big shift. He, too, is not the most favorite character. His narrative also appeared to bring complexity to his sisters, Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Arya (Maisie Williams), as he had helped them to bring Petyr Baelish (Aidan Gillen) down by confirming his lies.

This doesn’t mean that he is not an important character, though. But, he shouldn’t be just a supporting character.

Bran has to have his own strong storyline just like the others. So, it is quite expected that he is set to have a big return in “Game of Thrones” Season 8. In fact, there’s a theory saying that he might be the one to stop the Night King. He, too, is said to become the villain’s greatest nemesis.

Tom Hopper’s theory

Even before he became a fan-favorite character because of his good looks, Tom Hopper, who played the role of Dickon Tarly, met his demise in the previous season of “Game of Thrones.”

To recall, Dickon, along with his father Randall Tarly (James Faulkner), suffered an unfortunate fate when Drogon, Daenerys Targaryen’s (Emilia Clarke) dragon, burned them alive when they refused to bend the knee.

In an interview with Daily Express, Tom Hopper revealed his theories about the future of “Game of Thrones” Season 8. Just like what a lot of fans expect, the 32-year-old star also foresees that the final season will reveal a number of major deaths and betrayal. He strongly believes that Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) will end up killing his sister/lover Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey). He also admitted that he loves the idea of Sam Tarly’s (John Bradley West) fan theory. “It's that Samwell Tarly is narrating the whole thing like it's his story,” he said.
