Was This The Night King's Plan All Along?

'Game of Thrones' review: 'Beyond the Wall,' score one for the Night King

Faithful fans will be reminded that this interaction is similar to what we saw in Season 4's "Oathkeeper", when one of Craster's children was taken to the Lands of Always Winter. Dany's conquest, paired with the growth of her dragons, sent the Night King's actions into motion.

One thing which fans have found particularly weird is the fact that the White Walkers, despite their name, have barely moved an inch for two seasons. Or did the Children Of The Forest make other White Walkers, too, and we just didn't see it? Richard Brake, 52, plays the evil king on the show, although you wouldn't know it if you passed him on the street.

Some fans believe that the Song of Ice and Fire is actually referring to the balance that the world has to keep in order to move forward. Suddenly, defeating the White Walkers seems more doable than before. They may look human-like, but they have wispy white hair, otherworldly pale skin and terrifying ice-blue eyes. Something about that interaction destroyed the magical protection of that tree, and it all happened because Bran was up against a mental opponent whose powers he neither understood nor planned for.

Wights, on the other hand, are your standard zombie-style minions.

And fans think this explains why the walkers have barely moved for a few seasons: they were waiting for their enemies to come to them. But if Jon and his men can't take down the night King in this way, they can still use their newfound knowledge to chip away slowly at the rest of the White Walker army.

Turm0il26 argues that Bran, aware of the death and destruction the White Walkers bring to Westeros, decides to travel back in time to stop The Night King.

The views of columnists published on Sport24 are therefore their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Sport24. En route to those titles he comfortably defeated Nadal twice to extend his recent win-streak over the Spaniard to four.

Anyway, if the Night King can see into the future, even partially, things are going to get really tricky, really quickly.

If there really is more to his power, it would make sense for his power of persuasion to be a form of warging, adding another significant connection between the Night King and the Three-Eyed Rave, a.k.a. Bran Stark.

Perhaps the Night King's plan to break down the Wall (and its magic, even more importantly) depends on getting a wight across, and he knows exactly what he's doing? Bran not only has the capability to warn in a to human that something most wargs can not do, if there's any, he also prophetic dreams, green eyesight, and visions.

What these creative theories have in common with the one about Bran?

The theory, which originated on Forbes, stated: "I'm beginning to suspect that the Lord of Light is not on the side of life, but a god of war, a bit like Wonder Woman's Ares". According to them, the short-sleeved leather vest, skirt, pants and boots worn by the Night King were very similar to those sported by Bran previously in the series, and since it is highly unlikely that the resemblance was unintentional, it is possible that Bran Stark and the Night King could be one and the same.
