**WARNING: spoilers for episode 3 of Game of Thrones

"The Long Night," the third episode of the eighth season of HBO's Game of Thrones, is still imprinted in our minds since the episode premiered two weeks ago.

If you haven't seen it yet and are trying to avoid SPOILERS, we advise you to hit your "back button" ASAP.


There were many interesting developments during the Battle of Winterfell. Arya Stark killing the Night King was one thing.

Melisandre fulfilling her purpose was another.

But what many of us really want to know is what in the world Bran Stark was doing when he warged into those ravens.

Bran is the Three Eyed Raven, the keeper and recorder of history.

According to actor Isaac Hempstead Wright, who's played Bran since the show debuted in 2011, Bran was simply "keeping tabs on the battle":

"As far as I understand it, he's just in the ravens. He's just keeping tabs on the battle. But having lots of shots of ravens flying around wouldn't be much of interest! And it would be pretty impractical for him to be like, 'Hey, Theon, can you go run over there and tell this guy to get out of the way of that guy?'"
"Bran recognises that all he can do is sit there and let whatever happens, happen. We saw how quickly all their plans disintegrated! There would have been no chance of an efficient communication system."

It seems the best thing Bran could do during the Battle of Winterfell was stay put.

But people are still at odds over what he actually did.






Hempstead Wright also batted away suggestions that Bran is, in fact, the Night King:

""The Night King is dead. I can't see how Bran is the Night King, or was the Night King."

Just what were you doing when you met the Night King, though, Bran?

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
