'Game of Thrones': Is Bran Secretly the Night King?

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

In Beyond The Wall, the latest episode of Game of Thrones, viewers were given an exciting new revelation about the deadly White Walkers.

That's the theory one Reddit user has put forward ahead of the finale of Game of Thrones' seventh season next week.

BuzzFeed notes that it's possible the Night King has Greensight or some other seeing capability linked to Bran, and knew the group was traveling north of the Wall.

Game of Thrones airs Sunday at 9 p.m. EST on HBO.

Smuggled Bengal tiger cub confiscated at border crossing
Now the zoo is providing veterinary care for the member of an endangered species, with only 2,500 Bengal tigers in the wild. Valencia was released on a $10,000 surety bond and was ordered to appear for a preliminary hearing on September 5.

Sounds legit, right? Now, while that's a strong theory and definitely fills in some implausible gaps in the narrative, it still doesn't offer solid proof of the Night King's sinister plan.

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. This is clearly how new White Walkers are "born" into servitude to the Night King. In addition to being perplexed by the episode's wonky timeline and those seriously odd conversations between Arya and Sansa, we also had to wonder how in the hell the Night King appeared to know that Daenerys's dragons would show up to aid Jon Snow.

His eyes turned ice-blue after being touched by the nail of the Night King, the same act that we saw during Viserion's resurrection.

"Bran believes he is eventually (with more knowledge) going to be able to rewrite history and that's why he decides to go back and stop the Night king several times, but fails every time, ending up fulfilling the timeline-circle and taking the identity of the Night king himself", writes Turm0il26. But would killing him do more than just eliminate a lot of wights? So make sure you're not stuck in the past.

Young Bulls players fed up with Dwyane Wade; buyout 'inevitable'
Jimmy Butler was traded, Rajon Rondo is gone, and now Wade is reportedly going to be bought out by the Bulls in the coming weeks. This NBA offseason, Dwyane Wade exercised the $23.8 million player option in his contract to remain with the Bulls .

Before this, the Walkers had no real way to topple the huge Wall which keeps them from the rest of Westeros. He is forever known as the Night's King (with the possessive-important distinction), and he and his bride reigned from the Nightfort along the Wall for 13 years before they were stopped by the combined forces of the Stark King and the King-Beyond-The-Wall.

The strength of the army of the dead comes from their massive numbers and lack of fear. Either way, hopefully Bran starts giving his siblings some helpful information soon, because there's no telling what the White Walkers will be able to accomplish with an ice dragon on their side. But even if it is possible, there's no guarantee any man alive is powerful enough to kill the Night King.

This idea is key to how the Night King has such a diverse army behind him, rather than just a barrage of reanimated corpses.
