'Game of Thrones' Season 3 Told Us Bran Stark Is The Three-Eyed Raven

OK, if you've been watching "Game of Thrones" since the beginning, then you probably saw the scene from season three, episode two I'm about to discuss. However, you definitely did not realize its significance at the time.

Let me take you back, back to a time when Hodor still walked around Westeros -- too soon? -- and King Joffrey still sat on the Iron Throne.

In this scene from season three of "Game of Thrones," a young Bran Stark is having one of his visions, in which he attempts to take aim at the Three-Eyed Raven with his bow and arrow.

However, as soon as Bran pulls back on his bow, Jojen Reed appears and tells him he can't kill the bird. He explains to Bran he can't kill the Three-Eyed Raven because Bran is the raven.

Here's their conversation:

Jojen Reed: You can't kill it, you know? Bran Stark: Why not? Jojen Reed: Because the raven is you.

Then, Bran snaps back to reality, and we get to see Hodor again. OK, I'll stop.

Reddit user SenselessB, who posted the above YouTube link, has another theory, in addition to the obvious conclusion Bran is, indeed, the Three-Eyed Raven.

As you can see in SenselessB's post, there is the possibility this whole thing is a metaphor, and Bran Stark is a completely new Three-Eyed Raven.

So, what do you think?
