Game of Thrones stars strongly hint that a very awkward reunion will take place in Season 8
A mystery about the Three-Eyed Raven could be answered.
You know what's coming. If you want to remain spoiler free, it's time to warg your eyes elsewhere and leave.
Throughout the course of Season 7, it's clear that the Bran Stark that we first met in Game of Thrones is no more. After becoming the Three-Eyed Raven, Ned Stark's only living son has seen a dramatic character change because his new found powers have ultimately caused the death of his 'previous' personality.
Due to his greenseer abilities, there's no denying that Bran will have a massive role to play as The Great War approaches, but after denying those theories that he's the Night King, Isaac Hempstead-Wright was speaking with Empire about the most recent episodes and the final season.
As you may remember, Bran has always been pivotal throughout the history of Game of Thrones. In the very first episode, he discovers the incestuous relationship that Jaime and Cersei are having but before he has the chance to reveal this bombshell, he's thrown out of the window by Jaime and is left paralysed.
Given the fact that Bran has the ability to see an endless amount of events that have happened in the past, we're certain that Bran can remember this incident and plenty of people think that the Kingslayer and the Three-Eyed Raven are going to reunite in Season 8.
Now that Jaime has left Cersei's side and pledged to honour the promise that he might to Jon and Daenerys, this reunion is looking likely.
What do y'all think is gonna be the interaction between Jaime and Bran when they meet in Winterfell?!?? #ThingsIThinkAboutInClass

During a podcast with Empire, Isaac Hempstead-Wright said that he would love to be acting alongside Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) in Season 8.
"I'm hoping there's going to be a Jaime and Bran reunion. I think that would be really, really cool - especially since he's headed, hopefully, north by now to help us out. I think that would be really, really cool. Can you imagine how scared Bran could make him? He could really question his morals."
In a separate interview, Coster-Waldau told Indiewire that he also hopes that this reunion happens.
"My hope is that I’d like him to meet Bran and I’d like him to apologise to Bran Stark because that wasn’t a nice thing he did in Episode 1 [shoving him out the tower window]… And obviously I hope there’s some kind of scene again with Jaime and Cersei because that is the main relationship. I hope that they get to have one face-to-face before we end the show, but who knows.”
During the interview, Hempstead-Wright also said that he expects to start shooting the new episodes in the next few months but as of now, the cast haven't received scripts yet.
