But beyond the relentless fire and brimstone, a comparatively fleeting moment prompted furious speculation amongst Game of Thrones fans as latest episode, The Spoils of War built, towards its thrilling climax. That has been his destiny from day one; this is where his story arc has been leading up to from the moment he got pushed out of that tower.
Now that the show is in its seventh season, it's increasingly unlikely that we'll actually get to see the character. After the characters have spent so many seasons scattered and driven apart, it's a sign of how far along the show has progressed. Will it be Arya who slices that very dagger through the Night King, putting an end to the war? Fans will recall that this is the same dagger that nearly killed Bran and was used by Littlefinger to threaten Ned Stark (Sean Bean) in season 1. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love, the illusions. Arya was also gifted the Valyrian dagger that was used in an attempt to kill Bran back in season 1 by her brother, but he again looked subdued and odd when interacting with his sister.
And the excitement at this potential spot has reached fever pitch because in the book series by George R.R. Martin, the spirit of Catelyn comes back to life as an undead character called Lady Stoneheart.
Yes, back in season three Littlefinger was having a private conversation with the equally mysterious Varys, with Littlefinger admitting that he knows Varys is spying on him and that he'd killed the informant. The fact that Bran heard that line means that he's gone back and looked through Mr. Baelish's timeline.

With Bran now returned to Winterfell, Littlefinger sits down with him to try and work his manipulative charm, shoring up his influence on the remaining Stark children.
If you fancy watching the whole scene again (and who doesn't?) then watch it here, and skip to 0:12 and 0:59 in the video for the Cait bits - if you're not distracted by the incredible swordplay, that is. I tried to base it on the old Three-Eyed Raven [played by Max von Sydow in Season 6] and have a sense of this wise, old, man sitting in a tree.
