Seems like Game Of Thrones season 6 is preparing fans for some huge moments ahead on the show. But Bran Stark's vision in episode 6 titled, Blood Of My Blood, has opened a door of speculations about Mad King Aerys II Targaryen.
While being dragged away by Meera on a snowy night, Bran had a series of visions including the Mad King's killing, Ned Stark's execution, Catelyn's death at the Red Wedding and the Night's King's marking of the baby and the birth of Daenerys Targaryen's dragons.
But the most interesting appearance in the vision was the Mad King, who was chanting "burn them all" and was later stabbed to death by the Kingslayer. The scene reignited the theories about the Stark son's super abilities to enter his past, present, and future. His interference in time was evident when the young Hodor got influenced during Bran's time travel and kept repeating "hold the door".
But, what if the Mad King's theory turns true that Bran is the person behind all the bloodshed and menace in the land of Seven kingdom!
The popular theory goes like this: After learning about the White Walker's advance in his vision, the son of Ned Stark will try to warn King Aerys. But his attempt will make matters worse as the king could only hear whispers. Hence after hearing "voices" around him, the king goes insane and orders the execution of Rickard Stark and Brandon Stark.
As the blockbuster fantasy series is sprinting towards the finale, many more revelations are expected in the upcoming episodes. In the next chapter titled, The Broken Man, co-executive producer Bryan Cogman has teased a particular storyline. He said, "All I can say about next week's episode is that there was a week of shooting a particular sequence/storyline that was my favorite week on set in six seasons of Game of Thrones," he told EW.
Talking about the emotional Stark reunion he said: "Season 6 is rife with Stark reunions! That's another thing that's been very heartening to track with the fans. The show is so sprawling and there are so many threads, but – at it's heart – it's largely about this good family that was torn apart. So seeing some of them connect again (Jon and Sansa; Benjen and Bran) was very satisfying to write and to shoot."
