When it comes to pointing out some of the pros, 'Game of Thrones' must be given the credit for bringing up to life some intriguing characters. By now, is well known that the narrative story has been following several central threads, all connected yet autonomous. Bran Stark, Ned's youngest son can hardly be assimilated to a type of persona you would bump into in a faux-medieval universe as the one presented by the HBO drama in question. Bran has been a discreet presence throughout the first seven seasons. Season 7 saw his names at the centre of some strange scenes that suddenly presented him as a pivotal point that might influence the final outcome.

His out-of-this-world brand new skills enable him to see the entire narrative plot as a whole.

Bran Stark with a crucial role in 'Game of Thrones'

Bran Stark's power resides not from the usual stream. He has no warrior attributes at all in a place where the raw power represents the true axis of existence,

Of course, as the Three-Eyed Raven, he can base his future role on raw knowledge. Being aware of the present as well as the past, Bran Stark has become the convergence point of two-thirds of the time axis. The future is the only one he cannot access but embracing both the past and the present would help to project a new light on how it may unfold.

Having no individual agenda at all, the crippled yet celestial Bran Stark might impact the Season 8 of 'Game of Thrones' greatly.

As a Three-Eyed Raven, he amassed the entire knowledge in Westeros and beyond which gives a privileged status among the high-profile characters. He holds the strings in what sees to become a life vs death encounter.

Bran can influence the relationship between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen

Knowing the past of any character involved gave Bran the chance to witness the true root of Jon Snow.

As it turned out, the King of the North is a Targaryen and the true heir of the Iron Throne. While the strategic partnership between Daenerys Targaryen turned into a romantic file, Bran confessed to Samwell Tarly, this Maester wannabe, that Jon Snow must learn who he really is. Soe would argue that it would be better for Jon Snow not to learn out the truth and that's because of the possible reaction fro Daenerys Targaryen.

It would be interesting to watch how the Jon/ Daenerys pair would evolve if swapping roles would take place.

Moreover, Bran Stark being the Three-Eyed Raven gives the living team the mystic element they needed to counterbalance the Army of the Dead's features.
