Why Bran’s reaction was so weird in the entire episode.?

While watching episode 3, you all must be wondering what happened to Bran Stark? Why was he acting so weird? And many such questions must be popping up in your mind.

Some also said that the transition of Bran into Night King occurred when the Children of the Forest pierce the man’s heart with dragon glass.

However, now that the Night King is dead we still have so many questions that have gone unanswered. Why was Bran warning? What did the Night King have to do with Bran? Why did Arya not become a White when the Night King held her by her throat even though we have seen it happen before in previous seasons? What happened to the Dothraki’s? Yet some still believe that there’s a chance Bran could still be the Night King. Let’s hope that our questions are answered in the final 3 episodes of the series.
