The real reason Bran Stark saved Jaime Lannister

Game of Thrones fans remember the season one scene that saw Bran Stark (played by Isaac Hempstead Wright) nearly killed at the hands of Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) to stop people finding out about his relationship with Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey).

However, fans were shocked to see their reunion in the finale, which saw Bran spare Jaime, revealing his target is the Night King (Vladimír Furdík), not the man who nearly killed him as a boy.

Many fans have since questioned why Bran spared Jaime, but one fan thinks Bran’s intentions were far less honourable than first thought.

Fans will know the siblings died in each other’s arms as The Red Keep fell in around them, and one fan suspects Bran wanted to see this play out.

A number of previous fan-theories and visions seemed to predict the siblings would die together including one of Jaime’s own dreams earlier on in the original books A Song of Ice and Fire.

However, few had predicted Bran would have anything to do with their deaths.

Reddit user trooflaw said: “You could argue that Jaime did nothing for the war against the AotD and thus his goal for saving Jaime (knowing Jaime would betray them), was that Jaime ultimately guaranteed Cersei’s death where it otherwise may not have been.”

Could Bran have saved Jamie knowing he would die with Cersei in the Red Keep?

There had long been hints the two would die together, but it seems Bran foresaw and wanted to see that both siblings would die instead of killing off Jaime.
