'GoT' Season 8 Fan Theory: Is Bran Stark the Night King?

Game of Thrones’ rumor debunked Why Jaime won’t die at Winterfell

The final season of the hit TV show "Game of Thrones" will be halfway complete following this Sunday's episode.

If you're anything like me, you will have been walking around for the past five days with a knot of anxiety in your stomach, distracted from everyday tasks by the impending ball of emotional ruin barrelling towards us in the form of the next episode of 'Game of Thrones' final season.

While viewers get further into the season, more and more theories seem to arise, but not all sound so believable.

The most popular theory states that when the Night King attacks, he'll be using his powers to raise the dead Starks within the crypts to attack the living. But the trailer has given us a glimpse of the Dragon for GoT S8E3. Emphasis on Night King's army, however, because as we saw the White Walkers about to bear down on Winterfell, he of the glowing blue eyes and spiky head was nowhere in sight, and neither was the zombified Viserion.

JAIME LANNISTER: This character, played by Danish actor Nikolaj Coster Waldau, is a knight who fathered several illegitimate children with his sister, Cersei, now the queen (played by Lena Headey).

So where is the Night King, anyway?

Once the Night King's army arrives at Winterfell, it seems likely that anyone hiding in the crypt or even already buried there may end up becoming part of the undead army.

So, if you are looking for details on how to watch the show beyond just setting your DVR, we've got you covered. Sure, he has the Night King's mark on his arm, but the lengths the show would have to go to in order to explain a correlation would be potentially too hard for fans to understand.

"It's going to be a bloodbath, but we're going to love it".

At the end of the day, 'Valar Morghulis'.

Daenerys and Jon look on from the distance pressumably preparing to fly in on dragon-back Varys and Tyrion in the Winterfell crypts Is this Jon coming face to face with the Night King? Sure, the theory adds another layer of drama, but we're not so sure it can be pulled off, nor are we sure that we'd want to see it happen.
