Did Robert Baratheon predict every Stark's fate in the opening episode of Game of Thrones?
If this is true, the writers of the show are geniuses...

As you probably gathered from Game of Thrones, the Stark family haven't had the best of times, although that has changed somewhat in recent episodes with a mini revival.
Ned Stark, Catelyn Stark, Robb Stark and Rickon Stark have all perished over the course of the show.
Now, Jon remains, as does Sansa, Arya and
Bran the Three-Eyed Raven.
But one person believes that the fate of each of the Starks was revealed in the very first episode of the show, when King Robert Baratheon made his entrance into Winterfell.
Redditor dnspartan305 has put forward this observation from the episode.
I'm not sure if all of this has been pointed out before, but it is worth bringing up. When Robert greets the Starks, he touches Ned, Cat, Robb, and Rickon. All of them die. He calls Sansa a pretty one, and she is later on kept and tormented by Joffrey as a trophy. Robert has Bran show him his muscles, and Bran becomes a cripple. He asks Arya's name, and later on she becomes No-One. Jon is behind a wall of Starks...
If it's a coincidence, it's a pretty eerie coincidence, or else the writers of the show are absolute geniuses.
