This New Game Of Thrones fan theory which has become viral claims that Bran Stark is indeed the Night King, and well when we go through the clues- it truly makes sense! We all know how the audience and fans are always a step ahead of the TV show makers. They have left no stone unturned to prove how Bran Stark has transformed from a cute little boy to the evilest character, the Night King.
Reddit user turm0il26 has claimed that Bran Stark’s and Night Kings costume are almost identical- in cut and in style too. Based on Night King’s attire on Episode 6 and the outfit Bran wears in his vision has made this theory more compelling and believable. Some fans believe that this theory is just a figment of the imagination, but this is not the first time that makers have used costume to turn the course of events. Remember, how in season 6 Jon appeared in a Stark-inspired outfit during his renouncement of Night’s watch duty- It subtly hinted at his future as the King in the North.
However, the Reddit user has more powerful proof other than the similarity between their costumes. The crippled boy’s absurd mental powers and his capability to ‘warg’ or placing his soul in a different boy or creature actually gives a clue that Bran is the Night King. These powers are as similar as the
Another claim ha made by the Reddit user, that how Bran would try to recast history in a different number of ways through going back in time to construct the Wall and making an effort to prevent the eradication of Westeros by walking into the soul of the man the Children of Forest ultimately turn into the White Walker.
turm0il26 wrote, “When he realizes he failed again, he tries to go back in the current timeline, but can’t because he’s too deep into the past and stayed too long.” “From here, Bran gets stuck in the past (exactly as [the Three-Eyed Raven] and Jojen warned him not to) and becomes the Night King. With the combination of the Children’s’ magic and Bran’s power, he becomes the villain instead of the hero he tried to be, resulting in [him] turning against the Children for creating him and getting stuck behind the magical Wall he later builds as Bran the builder.”
It was also seen that Bran has a special connection with Night Kings in season 6. When Bran woke from the vision, he asked Leaf if the Children created all White Walkers. Leaf replied: “We were at war and slaughtered. Our sacred trees cut down. We needed to defend ourselves.”
Asked from whom she meant, Leaf told Bran: “From you.”
This clearly suggests that Bran has a special connection with Night Kings, who is the only one able to touch him when he wargs. The conclusion of this theory recommends that Bran will use his powers to go back in time to stop the White Walkers.
The episode which aired on Sunday further proves this theory more. Shockingly, the Night King showed up to the frozen lake not only with the ice spears but also with chains big enough to drag one dragon out of the water, indicating that his entire plan was to make Daenerys fly to the North. Night King is smarter than most of us think; and according to the sources, the entire battle on the frozen lake is Night King’s master plan. He chooses this setup carefully to increase the chances that Daenerys and her dragons would come between the wars. Do you think it was a mere coincidence that he waited for hours, if not days, and only attacked ten minutes before Dany’s arrival?
We have to wait till the next Sunday, to know more about this theory. Chances are, we’ll only know the truth in the next season which is most likely to air on 2019. What do you think about this theory? Pour your thoughts in the comment section!
