Robin Arryn’s ‘Glow-Up’ Has Shocked Game Of Thrones Fans Watching Series Finale

OK, so obviously there are SPOILERS lying ahead. Beware.

There’s been a whole load to discuss about the finale of Game of Thrones. Loads went on. After Daenerys Targaryen was killed, the important ones who had made it through in Westeros came together to decide what should happen to Tyrion Lannister and Jon Snow.

There was also the issue of the Iron Throne – which turned out to not be an issue at all in the end.

But people have also picked up on one finer point of the episode.

The people who gathered together to decide what should happen included the Starks that were left – so Sansa, Arya and Bran, Brienne, Gendry and loads of others.

And if you are eagle-eyed like me, you will have clocked that one of those ‘others’ looked vaguely familiar.

One of the people who had gathered was Robin Arryn, Lord of the Vale. Although, many noticed he looked very different this time round.

People obviously went straight on Twitter to talk about his ‘glow-up’. You might remember he was breastfed by the majorly overprotective Lysa until 15 – and people are obviously attributing his new look to that, because Twitter is well weird.

Another character to have grown up on screen is the brand new ruler of Westeros – Bran Stark.

And as shocked as some people were by Bran’s new status, some fans are arguing the clues were there all along.

Back in the very first episode, we saw Ned Stark behead a member of the Night’s Watch called Will.

Before doing so, he recited the oath of execution, saying, as per tradition: “In the name of Robert of the House Baratheon.

“First of His Name, King of the Andals and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, and Protector of the Realm, I, Eddard of the House Stark, Lord of Winterfell and Warden of the North, sentence you to die.”

Just before Ned says ‘King of the Andals and the First Men’, the camera cuts to Bran and Jon – something that some fans are saying foreshadowed Bran’s destiny.
