So as I was reading ADWD..a sudden idea came to my idea. We never came to know what happen to Benjen Stark. It was just mentioned that he was lost in one of the ranger mission. His body was never found (dead body or living dead). Now, we know that 'COLDHAND' was a ranger of the nightgaurd, who was killed by the 'others' (as mentioned by the Children of the forest in ADWD). My guess is COLDHAND is Benjen Stark. What do you guys think??
Yes, I agree that Bran would have recognized his uncle, and there is possibility that he may from the age of heroes. But as per the book, CH always keep her face covered. That could have been the reason why Bran was unable to recognize Benjen. Just a thought...
I think there was a comment that he was dead a long time as well. Goo to westeros.org they have the answer The question is if Bloodraven (the tree guy) is controlling Coldhands who is controling the Wights? Stay tuned for 2016 when the answer may or may not be revealed :P
I thought when Bran was in the abandoned village just before he met the Three Eyed Crow that it was said that Cold Hands was his uncle Brandon. I need to get the book back from my husband so I can find it again...
I always figured it was Benjen but I have found it best to dance around such issues and pretend it could be just about anybody so people don't have a panic attack at my offensive alpha male Gatling gun rhetoric.
Are my posts coming across with [i hate you] html tags? That would explain a lot.
<<Are my posts coming across with [i hate you] html tags?>> [hate=1]No. However, your random spurts of trolling are annoying to me, so I don't feel any sort of need to "reach out," if you will. [/hate]
EDIT: By the by, thank you for the tags; I love them.
