Game Of Thrones concluding with Bran Stark as the new king of Westeros was met with a quizzical 'really?' from many who had invested their time in watching the show.
Those unsatisfied include Aaron Rodgers. The Green Bay Packers quarterback made a cameo appearance in the penultimate episode of the show.
"You come down to the end and Tyrion says the person with the best story is Bran?" Rodgers said at a Packers open training session on Monday.
Who, by the way, three episodes ago said he wasn’t Bran Stark anymore.
No. Jon had a better story. Dany had a better story. Arya had a better story. Sansa had a better story. Tyrion had a better story. Varys had a better story. Bronn, a lot better story. Jaime, better story. Cersei, probably a better story. Any Baratheon, better story.
"I think Dany should have been on the throne," added Rodgers.
"Here’s the thing, though. Here’s my last theory about it. Bran - the Three-Eyed Raven, who's all about the health of the realm - let’s think about what he did: He basically wanted the throne the whole time because he’s the one who told the Starks, knowing that Sansa would tell Tyrion, knowing that Tyrion would talk to Varys, knowing that he’d scheme for Dany’s death, knowing that would piss her off, which led her to be the Mad Queen.
"So he, the entire time, set the whole thing up and then at the end goes ‘Oh yeah, I don’t want to be king. Oh, but why did I travel all this way to be here?’
"No. Look, I love the opportunity to be in the show, which most people probably don’t think I was, but I was there. I love the show, but the writers are also doing Star Wars, so I think they might have been a little busy."
