Which is a pretty hellish existence. Some science-fiction has characters who are possessed, and the original personality is behind the scenes just watching as the possessor controls the body.

I imagine Bran is a bit like that, knowing what's going to happen, including knowing what he's going to decide, and knowing that when the moment comes, he'll not decide anything different.

Christ almighty that would be awful.
