[spoiler]I thought Jon shot Ygrette but I'm not ashamed to mention I have an extremely blurry recollection of book events. Also yeah no idea why Bran's racing ahead of the curve.[/spoiler]
book [spoiler]Probably because he will be an adult soon![/spoiler]
[spoiler] My recollection was that he found her as she was dying and helfd her as she died. I don't think he shot her, but he had been killing a lot of people and might have noted a flash of red hair or something.
Yeah Bran's storyline, particularly without Cold Hands, doesn't have much left to run until he meets the Children OTF, which happened at the end of ADWD, so it's wierd that they are screening it now, when they could have just filmed it and shown it in the coming seasons. Then again NOTHING really happens in his storyline in the books, except he learns he can warg into Summer and Hodor. I don't know, maybe cold hands does come into it next season and they cut to Bran's story to teach us more about the Others, and he doesn't meet the COTF until the end.
I can't see him meeting the COTF in the final episode, I just don't see how there can be enough time, especially if we have to shackle dragons, spend at least half an hour on Tyrion, farewell the Hound and Arya, and maybe Brienne and Pod (though they could be abducted by the Brothers without Banners and brought before LSH). That's assuming we have to go back to The Wall welcome Stannis.
I wouldn't be surprised if we don't hear any more of a few of the storylines this fnal week. Maybe Jon's is over until next season. LF and Sansa are probably done too. And I think we might have seen the last of Bran until next season too. [/spoiler]
