In an extremely important scene from the first episode of Game of Thrones, Bran accidentally catches Jaime Lannister and his sister, Cersei, having sex in a tower at Winterfell. To keep their incestuous affair a secret, Jaime pushes poor Bran out of the tower, causing the boy to fall several feet below. Bran survives the fall but is paralyzed, and that sets a series of events in motion, with him he ending up becoming the Three-Eyed Raven, who can see the past and the future.
That incident has now come back to haunt Jaime, which has led to the plethora of memes on Bran Stark. The only surviving Stark boy is definitely at the centre of the memes being shared actively by the GoT fandom. His poker face demeanour is the perfect backdrop for sassy statements. Almost any smart statement can fit on his photo.
