Benjen Stark Knew The Truth About EVERYTHING? - Game of Thrones Season 8 (End Game Theory)

  • Опубликовано: 20 октября 2018
  • Welcome back for another Game of Thrones video. Today I want to talk about our favorite uncle, Benjen Stark. He wasn't just a man of the Night's Watch. He was also the brother of Ned Stark and Lyanna Stark; two very important characters in this story. We meet Benjen Stark in the very first episode, when he arrives in Winterfell for King Robert's feast. When he gets there, he has a conversation with his nephew, Jon Snow, and Jon talks about joining the Night's Watch immediately. This conversation is the basis for one very popular theory, which is, did Benjen Stark know the truth about Jon Snow's parents? We are led to believe Ned Stark kept this secret his entire life, but could he have told his brother? I also want to talk about a few scenes with Benjen and Bran Stark. After Benjen saves Bran and Meera, he says a few interesting things that could reveal how much he really knew. We don't know what Benjen was doing during all those years he spent beyond the Wall. His men were found in the first season, so what could he have been doing that whole time? We know the children of the forest saved him, by plunging dragonglass into his chest, just like the Night King. When you combine that, with the fact that Benjen has Stark blood, or the blood of the First Men, this could have given him some very special abilities. Was Benjen Stark in constant contact with the children of the forest, or did he have his own access to the weirwood net? Let me know your thoughts or opinions on these topics. Thank you for watching the video!

      Talking Thrones what a pointless video. Full of would haves could haves presumptions and assumptions. You normally have good ones but this is trash

      To quote you, "I've come to the conclusion that..." nothing that comes out of Season 8 will be anywhere as surprising or as detailed as all of our fan theories have prophesied. If I've learned anything from the past 2 years and 2 episodes, we fans are way more creative that D, D, and (to some extent) GRRM. Re-reading those books to obtain clues regarding the last season of the show is a bad move. At least so far, everything has been ridiculously fast paced reunions with simple explanations. We've basically seen the lead up to the final battle in the 3rd Lord of the Rings, practically verbatim. Let's just pray the remaining episodes are much better, due to story-line, script, and directors!!!!

    So the night king was created by the children of the forest but was their enemy. Why in the world would somebody create their own worst enemy? Did they not realize what they were doing?

          When playing as Hand to the King in Kings Landing, Ned Stark refuses to kill danaeryes as he is against killing a child - ties into his character of not allowing Jon Snow to be found as a Targaeryan and killed.

                Jon is a Targaryen.. this we know. Many things we know but what’s so magical about Winterfell? what’s beneath that place? What’s the secret deep within the crypt?

                  Maybe jon is the night king son. These idiots Dand D knew all people wanted a fight between jon and night king and they play some silly senseless game.

                                "Jon Snow is only a half Stark". So a full Stark is an offspring of incest? Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen are full lannisters?

                                  Theyre all only a half Stark if you think about it. We are all only a half of our father's family.

                                              From the very start of the season 1 i really felt the close relationship between jon and his uncle ben. I even thought that jon was ben's favorite nephew.
                                              I agreed in your theory that Ben knew the truth about jon 😊

                                                If he knew , it wasn’t from the beginning and that means that he didn’t know from ned and that doesn’t explain why he treated john so well. So basically he just liked john...

                                                      Why didn't Ned Stark just say he was raped

                                                            This theory does make sense, now that you mention it and look at it that way.

Of course he loved his other nieces & nephews but it wasn’t the same.
