Since season 7 came to an end there is no shortage of GOT theories on the internet. There is one burning question that the fans want to be answered as soon as possible- Who is the night king? This one Game of Thrones fan theory about Bran being the night king has been gaining popularity for the last couple of months. It could explain everything that has happened till now and how Game Of Thrones will end. How could Bran simultaneously be the Three-Eyed Raven and the Night King? And what does it mean for the ending of GOT? Let us take a look at some hints that tell us who is the night king.

This Tyrion Lannister Theory Explains Why He Looked Terrified In GOT Season 7 Finale

Check this out: What Do The White Walkers Want? Here Is The Answer

  1. Bran has been set up as the catalyst for almost every major event that has happened on GOT. If Jaime Lannister never pushed him off the tower at Winterfell, Catelyn Stark would have never gone on a mission to kidnap Tyrion, causing tension between the Lannisters and Starks and so on. Bran would never have unlocked his abilities as a warg and use his Greensight for traveling through time if he hadn’t lost his legs.
  2. Bran has been going back in time to save mankind from the White Walkers and failing in each attempt. He sees the terrible result of the Great War and decides to stop it before it starts.Who Is The Night King
  3. Bran has greensight, dreams based on prophecies, and visions that allow him to affect the past. We saw Ned react when Bran yelled, “Father!” at the Tower of Joy.
  4. When Leaf explained why the children of the forest resorted to creating the Night King, she said: “we needed to defend ourselves… from you.” After a pause, she added, “from men.” Maybe this pause meant what she said before.
  5. The voices who told the Mad King to “burn them all” was actually Bran Stark telling him to burn the White Walkers.Who Is The Night King
  6. Bran was warned repeatedly, “You can’t remain in the past or in someone else’s body for too long because you can get stuck there.” “It is beautiful beneath the sea; stay too long and you drown.” That is how Bran got trapped in the first White Walker, who then became the Night King with Bran’s powers.
  7. The Three-eyed Raven’s comment about how Bran “will fly” might be because the Night King is supposed to ride his new dragon.
  8. George R.R. Martin has said the ending will be bittersweet, and Jon killing Bran to end the war would certainly be that.
  9. When the first White Walker was created, he gripped the tree in the same way Bran gripped the roots beneath the ground while watching the scene because he was experiencing it in that exact moment.Who Is The Night King
  10. The Night King faced Jon Snow twice and made no attempt to kill him because it’s really Bran who recognizes Jon.

  1. Jon is THE true and singular protagonist! All the rest are in sub-plots to fill in the setting and create interesting and ancillary characters and the fantasy world history. Fun, but not basic to the protagonist’s role. All that “stuff” keeps the story interesting, but is meant as a distraction not a complement to the bare-bone and basic plot line. Look up the definition in literature. Protagonisr does not mean “hero!” He was not brought back to life for nothing. Now even his lineage is paving his way to the Iron Throne. BUT…
    …if it is offered to him, he will decline. This a surprising and bittersweet ending. Oh, lots of surprise killings and battles in the meantime!! I know I’m right. It cuts through to the very heart of classical and ethnic tales not being mired by extraneous side-plots. Martin, now no longer the writers’ “sage” admitted as much about how the tale will conclude, ” NOT” END!!!!! My thoughts will only hold if the writers don’t step out of the tradition myths, and sagas whose structures are left as the pattern. of course, they may, but it will be a miscarriage of historical literary definion and “good tale telling!” If it gets too far afield from that, they will have just been toying with us as bumptois Martin has been.

  2. Targariens will not sit on the throne. Jon is the protagonist who will be offered it and will decline. Thus, the bittersweet conclusion.
