Game Of Thrones is probably that one show on which the most
number of theories have ever been written or guessed. Every day
someone comes with a new theory with evidence and proofs that
make us think. Now, this particular theory that I am about to
discuss below is something that’ll blow your mind.
The show is already in its second last season and a lot has
happened till. The most feared and anticipated villain, Night
King with his army of the dead is on his way to Westeros. Now,
a lot has already been said on Night King and his powers. Also,
in season six, we already got to know through Bran Stark how
the Night King was created.
But the question that has still not been answered is who
actually is the Night King? Or to be precise, who was the man
that the children of the forest stabbed?
Well, this Reddit user might have solved the entire
mystery. As per
turm0il26, Bran is actually the much feared Night King.
Yes, the same Stark child who was pushed down from a tower by
Jaime Lannister and who now is the Three-Eyed-Raven. We all
have witnessed how Bran can travel back through time and see or
alter things. Remeber the fate of Hodor?
turm0il26 in his theory has stated that
the boy who can not walk but can travel through places by
through his ability to warg may be the culprit behind the whole
drama. As per him, using his ability to warg, Bran’s soul was
in the man who was stabbed and who later turned into the Night
To support his theory, turm0il26 has explained the whole thing
detail. He says that Bran believes that he has the power
to change the history, and hence, he travels back in time
The Redditor claims that Bran has so far travelled thrice back
in time. Each time, changing something or the other.
1. The first time he travelled several decades back, he
whispered and asked the Mad King to prepare for the White
Walkers. And hence, wildfire was prepared under the King’s
Landing. But things backfired when the Mad King thought he was
hearing voices and they were just messing him up. So in sheer
madness, he tried to burn the entire city.
2. The second time Bran travelled back in time, he assumes the
role of Bran the Builder. And made the wall that now stands
between the Night King and Humans. Bran even created the words,
“There must always be a Stark in Winterfell” after building
3. The final time travel that Bran did was the time Night King
was accidentally created. This time, as per this Game Of
Thrones theory, Bran either warged himself into the person
who now is the Night King or tried to those Childer of the
Forest who then created the Zombie King. But this plan yet
again backfires and he ends up becoming the Night King himself.
Due to this sudden change in the entire plot, Bran or the
Night King gets trapped behind the very own wall he built as
Bran the Builder. And is now waiting for ages to be born again
as Ned Stark’s child.
This Game of Thrones theory even says that “he doesn’t end his
misery by killing his younger self, is that he finally learnt
the ink is dry, and he would fail again.”
To make this his deduction stronger, turm0il26 has shared 3
pictures from the show which clearly shows Bran and the man who
now is the Night King doing the same actions.
He further says, “You can actually see in the scene where young
Bran goes back to the creation of the Night King, that when the
children push the dragonglass into his heart, we see Bran
tighten his grip on the veins, just as it is himself
experiencing the pain.
“Also in the end of the flashback, Bran is laying in the exact
same position in the cave, as the human pushed up to the tree
Remeber the scene where the Children of the Forest tells Bran
that he is the one who is responsible for the White Walkers.
Bran- “It was you? You made the White Walkers?”
Leaf- “We were at war. We were being slaughtered. Our sacred
trees cut down. We needed to defend ourselves.”
Bran asks-“From who?”
Leaf- “From you.”
