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!

      @NinoBlack_ _ What's wrong with presumptions and assumptions and would haves and could haves? It wets the mind's palette.

      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!!!!

          "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...

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

                                                He does seem to have a special connection with Jon, which would make sense is he knew that Jon was Lyanna’s son because he would have understood that Jon was all that was left of his sister. Of course he loved his other nieces & nephews but it wasn’t the same.

                                                  If Jon Snow is treagarian and Stark why does he have jet black hair.

What the hell difference would it have made? Also, would it not have been better all the way around for everyone involved in that debacle?! I'm guessing maybe not, or it would have ended that way, lol...

Ben Jen even got her armor and jousted and won as the laughing tree. Ben Jen knew Lyanna had a cruah on R. T. Funny how her sheild resembled a Weir Tree. At that Tournament R.T. gave her a flowered crown in front of everyone....which started the man hunt that led R.T. to find Lyanna...and started the war leading to R..T.s death at the hands of Robert B.

It is a repeat of history n betrayal .Danny like her ancestor is the true princess that was promise .They didn't find honor n a woman being Queen or ruling over a lord or man.Varly belongs to a sect ,who centuries ago made a blood pack n conspiracy against the chosen Queen. They plot to put Aegon on the throne. One was pure blood one wasn't Danny/Snow. Their r wild dragons that no human or God wore. The Starks made a bond that was broken. That's where Danny brother n John mom comes n. The midget like Trayon master of coins,Varly master of whispers. Watch Sansa with dragon glass dagger .The dance of dragon tells it all.Will history repeat itself or will Danny break the wheel her n Jon?
