[Fan Theory] Is Bran Stark actually the Night King?

Game of Thrones is at a critical point in its story right now. Season 7 is 5 episodes in, and in a couple of weeks, our long wait will resume. After this, we get only six more episodes for Season 8, which might not arrive before 2019. Now, as you know, one of the most important characters on the show right now, is Bran Stark, and he is definitely the most mysterious one, too. Now a new fan theory (not really, but actually an old theory re-explained) talks about how Bran Stark himself could be the Night King. Read on!

The theory, which has been updated, condensed and restructured to match the latest official information we have, by redditorturm0il26, explains how Bran Stark is the Night King. Read the full post below :

If you’re too bored to read the whole thing, here’s our TL;DR : Bran can move through time, so he first goes and tries to whisper to Aegon Targaryen, telling him to burn all the White Walkers. When that doesn’t work, he goes further back and builds the Wall as Bran the Builder, and also establishes Winterfell, and House Stark. The third time, he goes all the way back, and ends up getting stabbed in the heart with Dragonglass, making him the Night King.
