A interesting fan theory claims to have worked out the connection between Bran Stark and the Night King on Game Of Thrones.
Some Game Of Thrones viewers are convinced that Bran will turn out to be the Night King when the show returns for the final season.
Fan weeny doodle posted on Reddit that Bran, using his ability as a warg, will be able to save Westeros by stopping the undead from being created in the first place by the Children of the Forest.
Responding to another fan who questioned how the Night King already had ice lances in season seven, weeny doodle posted: ‘[Bran] wargs into a man thousands of years in the past, to warn the children.
‘When he finds them, they tie him up, and he becomes the man he saw in the past, he becomes the Night King. That explains his abilities and connection to Bran.’
However this theory has been debunked in the past.
and revealed that in the books there is no evidence that Bran can actually change the past, so it’s likely the show will stick to this.
They add that by making Bran the Night King it would fundamentally change his character by linking him to a character who only appears on the TV version of A Song Of Ice And Fire.
The Night King is such a mysterious character, that it would make for better viewing if he either stayed mysterious or they revealed more about the man who would eventually become the monster, rather than him just being a vessel for Bran to flex his supernatural muscles.
All will be revealed in the final season, which is slated to air next year.
