You Will Not Want To Believe This Theory About Bran

9.5K Reads

There's a new theory circulating online about Bran that will seriously blow your mind: what if Brandon Stark is actually the Night King, the leader of the White Walkers?

Could this be true?  Let me explain.

We know of Bran's ability to travel in time from his lessons with the Three-eyed Raven.  Bran tried to interfere with time, and it sort of worked.  His father heard him.  Hodor saw him (not to mention Bran's ability to warg into Hodor in the past), and, most importantly, the Night King grabbed him.

This begs the question: what if Bran were to try this again, this time to stop the White Walkers from ever getting created?  There's a possibility that Bran went back in time once again to stop the Night King from being created by the Children of the Forest and was himself abducted and used for this horrible experiment.  

The Children of the Forest wouldn't recognize Bran in the past and at the time they were in bloody war with the First Men, meaning they wouldn't stop to listen to the Stark boy if he were to travel back to the period.  As Leaf said when explaining the reasoning for creating the Night King, "we had to defend ourselves from you."  Could this mean Bran specifically?

Bran could be stuck in the past as the Night King, unable to wake up, as we've seen the dangers to staying in visions for too long.  This would explain the Night King's ability to walk.

If Bran were the Night King, it would clarify how the white walker knew exactly where he would be in the past to grab onto him.  It would also make sense of Night King's murder of the Three-eyed Raven, as Bran would be angry for not being told his terrible fate.

Want more proof?  Check out Bran's physicality when he sees the creation of the White Walker for the first time.  We see Bran back in his body when the dragon glass is slipped into the Night King's chest as if he were part of the events taking place.  Bran's positioning in the tree is also identical to that of the man turning into the Night King.

If Bran were really the Night King, it would spell out the bitter-sweet ending George R.R. Martin wants.  To end winter and save Westeros, Jon Snow will have to kill his own flesh and blood.

What do you make of this insane theory?

When Rachel is not talking about comedy or shamelessly singing Les Mis in the car, she's probably talking about comedy or singing Les Mis in the car because THAT'S ALL SHE DOES. Oh, and she really likes Game of Thrones, performing and writing sketches and her dog, Charlie
