"Bran goes back all the way to where the Night king was created, to warg into the human that later is going to become the Night king. He wargs into him to instead stop the 'dragonglass into the heart'-event from happening. Only he doesn't think of that the children of the forest won't recognize him from the future, and that they at that point are in war with the first men (he is gagged because of all the weird future-talk). When he realized he failed again, he tries to go back in the current timeline, but can't because he's too deep into the past and stayed too long ('it is beautiful beneath the sea, stay too long and you drown'). From here Bran gets stuck in the past (exactly as Brynden and Jojen warned him not to) and becomes the Night King."

it's actually a pretty clever theory...there are other theories floating around as well saying that Bran went into the past and spoke with the Mad King but he didn't understand and eventually went crazy...all he kept hearing were the words 'burn them all' which was really Bran warning him about the White Walkers and wights...so Aerys became the 'Mad King' due to Bran

I always thought the Mad King was mad/crazy due to incest within the Targaryens. Seems like every once in a while, the incest offspring ends up being a nutjob. Joffrey seemed the same way.

I'm not buying this Bran stuff. The only reason he was able to jack into Hodor was because he'd already ruined his mind. He never warged the past Hodor.

If he is NK, what is his motivation? Why is he murdering everyone? If he's gone to the past, that means, since the past point, he has been NK. Not buying it.



Also the mad king theory. Why? It makes no tactical sense. He didn't have dragons or any greater power than any of these current people. Bran has no reason to talk to him. He's crazy on his own.

And Dany's brother, Viserys Targaryen, was not a picture of mental health, either. I can't imagine what he might have done as king.

Dany also suffers from this affliction, I wouldn't want to piss her off

Making Bran the NK doesn't make sense because it doesn't open up any interesting dramatic development, other than the WTF factor.

However, if it turns out that they both have similar abilities, greensight and warging, like maybe they can tap into the other's mind or even control the other, even briefly, then you can get into some interesting scenarios.

Looks more like a fish to me when looking at the full shot. Hmm, makes me want to make a joke theory, but it's book related.

yeah I'm surprised they are not releasing Season 7 in UHD yet...I think I read that they filmed the season with 4K cameras...plus they are releasing Westworld in UHD in November...I guess GoT is so valuable that they want to milk out multiple re-releases...or they are saving it for the GoT complete box-set after Season 8
