AGoT Bran 2: foreshadowing

AfterA Dance with Dragons, this chapter seems to brim with foreshadowing of Bran’s inhabitation of birds, werewoods, and wolves.

Bran would have sworn [his direwolf] understood every word that was said to him…

[…]

The heart tree had always frightened him; trees ought not have eyes, Bran thought…

[…]

…Bran could see all of Winterfell … spread out beneath him … in a way even Robb would never know.

[…]

Old Nan toldĀ  him a story about a bad little boy who climbed too high and was struck down by lightning, and how afterward the crows came to peck out his eyes.

[…]

There was another thing he liked about climbing; it was almost like being invisible.

[…]

[Climbing barefoot] made him feel as if he had four hands instead of two….He liked…the crows in the broken tower…

[…]

Most of all, he liked … seeing the grey sprawl of Winterfell in a way that no one else ever saw it.

AGoT Bran 1: early evidence of Jon’s warging ability?
