Isaac Hempstead Wright: Chaos Is A Ladder Was Badass

Chaos is a ladder

Chaos Is A Ladder – Brandon Stark

Brandon Stark and Littlefinger had a very interesting moment in Game of Thrones Season 7. When Littlefinger gives Brandon the Catspaw dagger Bran utters this phrase, ‘Chaos is a ladder‘ which takes Littlefinger by surprise. Littlefinger had said these exact words to Varys in one of his conversations with him.

Chaos Is A Ladder – Littlefinger to Varys

Isaac Hempstead Wright, the actor who plays Brandon Stark in Game of Thrones in fact enjoyed that moment when he freaked out Littlefinger. Says Isaac Hempstead Wright, “Saying ’chaos is a ladder’ to Littlefinger was so cool, though. I felt so badass in that scene, like, ‘Chaos is a ladder … yeeaaaah. How do you like that, Littlefinger?'” Yeah, that definitely freaked out Littlefinger.

Brandon Stark was also at times creepy and mostly cold in Game of Thrones Season 7. He came across as a total jerk when he recalled the night Sansa got married to Ramsay Bolton and was raped. Well, Isaac Hempstead Wright just apologized for his creepy behavior as Brandon Stark.

Adds Isaac, ”Yeah, sorry about that. There were some cool bits to get to play, less so that creepy moment with Sansa. That was weird. I don’t think Bran meant that in a weird way. I don’t think he’s trying to freak his sister out by going, ‘Yeah, I know everything. Don’t f**k with me’. It’s more like Bran is processing everything he’s seen, like, ‘I’ve seen you there. That happened to you. I’m sorry for what happened to you’.

And about the cold behavior of Brandon Stark, says Isaac, “Bran has lost that emotional connection. He just states what he sees in an almost autistic way, not really connecting with things but just saying how they are.


Isaac also explained why he didn’t know about Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen’s wedding.

That was a bit confusing. The way I understand, it works like Bran has access. It’s like he’s got a Kindle library of every book of everything that’s ever happened in the world. He can access any of it in a heartbeat, but he hasn’t yet sat there and read it all. The old Three-Eyed Raven had a thousand years to sit in that cave to read every single page of everything that’s happened in the universe, and therefore be completely all knowing. Bran isn’t completely omniscient. He can look up anything he wants, but he hasn’t got it all by heart yet.

At that moment [in the finale], Bran was like, “Oh, yup, Rhaegar was [Jon’s] dad,” but he doesn’t think to explore it further. When Samwell Tarly says that [Rhaegar and Lyanna] were married, he can then confirm it. When his sisters come to him offscreen and go, “Can you look up what is the real deal with Littlefinger?” He can go, “He said this and this and this.”

Well, now we know why Brandon Stark is being so creepy and cold. The full interview can be found here.

Littlefinger Dies in the Finale – Game of Thrones Theories

Littlefinger has done a lot of damage to the Stark family. He betrayed Ned Stark which ultimately led to his execution and misused Catelyn Stark’s trust in him. Littlefinger sided with the Lannisters in the war of five kingdoms. He sold off Sansa Stark to the Boltons knowing the sadistic nature of Ramsay Bolton. And now he is playing off Sansa Stark and Arya Stark against each other. But he is probably in a surprise. What if Littlefinger dies in the Season Finale? Let’s analyze how that can be a possibility.



What is Littlefinger Up To?

Littlefinger dead

Littlefinger in Game of Thrones Season 7 Finale

Littlefinger sees Arya Stark and Sansa Stark’s relationship as a threat. He sees an opening to plant the seeds of mistrust when Arya duels with Brienne in Spoils of War. Littlefinger senses that he can exploit Sansa’s willingness to rule the north as a sign of betrayal towards Jon Snow for Arya. Arya watches as Sansa politely declined House Stark’s bannermen calls for her to supplant Jon Snow as leader of the North. Arya, later on, says to Sansa that she knows Sansa wants to be the queen, “You’re thinking it right now. You don’t want to be. But the thought just won’t go away.”

Later on, Littlefinger leads Arya to a letter written by Sansa in Season 1 to Robb asking him to express fealty to Joffrey. Arya confronts Sansa with that letter saying that she betrayed her family for her beloved Joffrey. Sansa tries to defend herself but Arya isn’t satisfied. Then, Sansa goes to Littlefinger expressing concerns about that letter coming out in public and how Arya can be dangerous. Littlefinger suggests that Brienne of Tarth can intervene if Arya poses any threat to Sansa. But Sansa ships Brienne and Podrick to King’s Landing to represent her at a G8 type summit being hosted by Cersei.

Sansa also finds Arya’s bag of faces and asks Arya about them. Arya scares Sansa by pointing the catspaw dagger at her and says to her that she can become Sansa Stark if she wishes to be. She also misrepresents some facts there especially of wearing pretty dresses if she wears Sansa’s face and also Sansa being all lady like when Ned Stark was being executed.



Littlefinger Dies in the Finale – A Possible Scenario

I think Arya and Sansa are playing a game the way Littlefinger plays other people. They are making Littlefinger believe that his plan of tearing the two sisters apart is working but in reality, there are plenty of clues now from Arya’s and Sansa’s conversation that indicate that this is all a ruse to turn the tables on Littlefinger in his style.

We also have a greenseer Brandon Stark who knows everything. I think Brandon Stark most likely has told Sansa already about Littlefinger’s betrayal towards Stark’s family. Sansa is just plotting a revenge by making Littlefinger think that his plan is working.

Littlefinger Dies

Also, we still have to hear the famous dialogue yet from Sansa, “When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives.”

Maybe she is gonna say this to Littlefinger when he is all caught up in his lies in front of all Stark House Bannermen. We will most likely say goodbye to Littlefinger in the season’s finale. Hence, why I think Littlefinger dies.

Why is Eastwatch by the Sea Important?

Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 5 is named ‘Eastwatch’. Viewers and fans are wondering why is Eastwatch by the Sea important? 



Eastwatch by the Sea – Relevance and History 

Eastwatch by the Sea

Eastwatch by the Sea in the map of Westeros

Nights Watch mans Eastwatch by the Sea castle. It is located at the far eastern end of the wall. It also serves as a port, just like the Kings Landing, White Harbor, and Gulltown, on the eastern coast of the continent of Westeros. It is also the point where the Great Wall drops into an inlet of the Shivering Sea called the Bay of Seals. Right now, it is manned by Cottor Pyke, and also includes Borcas, head Stewart of Eastwatch, and Dareon, a newly made Stewart of Eastwatch as its residents. In short, Eastwatch by the Sea is the point where the wall meets the sea. Eastwatch is the closest castle to Hardhome, the Wildling village where Jon encountered the White Walker army in Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 8.

Mentions of Eastwatch by the Sea in Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones Season 1

Jeor Mormont tells Jon Snow that four wights in the snow were found by Cottor Pyke’s men near Eastwatch. Unlike the men at Castle Black, they had the sense to burn them. Dareon is assigned to the Stewards and is sent by Maester Aemon to Eastwatch.




Game of Thrones Season 2

Tyrion Lannister dumps Janos Slynt onto a boat headed for Eastwatch by the Sea.

Game of Thrones Season 3

When Jon Snow infiltrates the wildlings, he is asked by Orell that which of the nineteen castles along the Wall are still being manned by the Nights Watch. Jon replies that only Castle Black, Eastwatch by the Sea, and the Shadow Tower are still being manned.

Game of Thrones Season 5

Stannis Baratheon advises the recently elected Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, Jon Snow to appoint Alliser Thorne as commander of Eastwatch, during his stay at Castle Black. Jon, instead, appoints Alliser Thorne as the First Ranger in recognition of his service.

Game of Thrones Season 7 

Dragonstone 

Jon Snow, in the episode Dragonstone, asks that the Wildling army, now led by Tormund Giantsbane, head to Eastwatch by the Sea to stand as the first line of defense against the oncoming White Walkers.  The Hound also sees a terrifying vision while staring into a fire alongside Beric Dondarrion: “The Wall… It’s where the wall meets the sea. There’s a castle there. There’s a mountain, looks like an arrowhead. The dead are marching past, thousands of them.” 

Eastwatch

That brings us to the upcoming episode of Game of Thrones Season 7. Eastwatch by the Sea is going to play a pivotal role in the fight between the army of the dead and the living. That will be the first face off between the Wildlings being led by Tormund Giantsbane and the army of the dead. Tormund is definitely going to need a lot of help soon. I just hope that Daenerys agrees soon to help Jon Snow with her dragons and Dothraki army.




Okay, so this was a history lesson for Eastwatch by the Sea. To catch up on what happened in episode 4 click here. Watch the preview of Eastwatch before the episode airs on HBO on Sunday at 9 pm EST.

Daenerys wants the remaining of the Lannister and Tarly enemy to bend the knee. She says in the preview, “Bend the knee and join me. Refuse or die“.

Tyrion Lannister in Eastwatch

Tyrion seems to be so torn between his love and worry for Jaime and the Lannisters and his pledge to serve Daenerys. He is definitely feeling some heat. He is also not happy about how Daenerys is treating him. Daenerys also warned Varys a few weeks ago about facing grave consequences if he ever betrays her. I think that someone is betraying her and Varys here is possibly trying to influence Tyrion against Daenerys.

Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 4 Top Moments

Some of the Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 4 Top Moments

 Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 4 had some big moments and they were breathtaking. 



Arya Stark Returns Home to Winterfell

Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 4 Top Moments

Ayra Pays Homage to Her Father At Godswood

This is a moment that all fans have been waiting for. Arya Stark finally returns home and reunites with Sansa and Brandon. She pays homage to her dead father by visiting Godswood. Brandon Stark gives him ‘The Cut Throat’, the dagger which was used in an attempt to kill him in Season 1. He gets the dagger from Littlefinger who gifts it to him. This is perhaps one of Brandon’s visions where Arya Stark will kill Littlefinger with that dagger.

She also duels with Brienne of Tarth and it’s a fantastic scene. Sansa watches Arya and Brienne and seems troubled to know of her sister’s swordsmanship.

Brandon Stark Died In The Cave of Three Eyed Raven

Fans have been wondering why Brandon Stark is so cold all of a sudden. He came back to Winterfell and shows hardly any emotion when he meets with Sansa after so many years. Well, that gets explained when Meera Reed comes to say goodbye to Brandon. Meera is shocked to see that Brandon has no feelings about all that she has done for him. Brandon tells Meera that he remembers what it meant to be Brandon Stark but now he also remembers so many other things. At that time Meera realizes that this guy is no longer Brandon Stark. She says, “You died in that cave”. So that mystery is solved for the viewers.



The Spark Between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen

Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 4 Top Moments

Jon and Daenerys Looking At Carvings From Children of The Forest

We definitely saw some sparks flying between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. Jon Snow takes Daenerys in a cave beneath Dragonstone where both exchange some adorable glances. Jon Snow shows to Daenerys the carvings made by Children of the Forest and First Men. The White Walkers carvings convinced Daenerys that the enemy is real. Daenerys tells Jon that she will fight for the North only if Jon bends the knee. It was electrifying when she takes a step towards Jon and looks him in the eye. Jon steps back cautiously when she steps towards Jon.

Later on, Ser Davos asks Jon, “What do you think about her”? Jon replies, ” She has a nice heart”. Ser Davos says, “You are staring quite a bit at her heart”. Jon replies, “There is no time for that right now”. Jon clearly is smitten by Daenerys but he is being cautious. Daenerys has also placed some trust in Jon. She asks him what she should do about the Lannisters when she hears the news about Casterly Rock.

Dany on a dragon in Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 4 ‘The Spoils of War’

In the last 12 minutes of the episode, we see Daenerys on her dragon and the Dothraki charging towards the Lannisters on their way from Highgarden to Red Keep. Fans have been waiting to see Daenerys say ‘Dracarys’ and they got that moment today. It was amazing to watch that with all the graphics in HD. Dothraki and Drogon destroy Lannisters and Tarlys. Bronn and Jaime hold the fort until the very end of the episode. Bronn hits Drogon with Qyburn’s scorpion which Drogon burns seconds later. In the end scene, Daenerys is trying to get the arrow out of Drogon and Jaime sees that as an opportunity. He charges towards Daenerys with a spear but Drogon hits him with his fire. Someone (most likely Bronn) comes on his horse and pushes Jaime into the water.

It remains to be seen if Jaime would survive. Most likely he will be captured by Dothraki and Daenerys.

Game of Thrones Leak: Arya Stark Back In Winterfell

In the Game of Thrones leak posted by a YouTuber, we see that Arya Stark is back in Winterfell. It was a really heart touching scene when she looks at Winterfell before entering the castle. Her first stop is Godswood to pay a homage to her dead parents.



Game of Thrones Leak: What Happens When Arya Stark Returns to Winterfell?

Arya is then reunited with her sister Sansa Stark and her brother Brandon Stark. Brandon is no longer Brandon anymore as he is the three eyed raven now. He tells Arya about his visions and also gives Arya the knife that Littlefinger has given to him. Perhaps he is already gearing Arya up to kill Littlefinger in the coming episodes. Brandon knows that Littlefinger had a hand in killing his father.

Arya Stark Back at Winterfell

Arya also duels with Brienne of Tarth in this episode. Twirling Needle, her sword, around gracefully, Arya more than holds her own with Brienne, who has perhaps found her protegee. Sansa doesn’t look very happy to know about Arya’s swordsmanship.

The full episode will air on HBO on Sunday at 9 pm EST.
