Game of Thrones rolls out AR camera effect on Facebook

This created the Night King, the very first White Walker and their leader to this day.

The wights are the weakest of the army of the undead. Is much more likely that the Night King didn't kill the King in the North to lure Daenerys and her dragons in the deep north [VIDEO].

Here's hoping Brienne and Tormund hook up by then, 'cause there's a good chance it'll mean the end of Westeros as we know it.

More evidence that suggests the spot where the Night King killed Viserion wasn't mere coincidence - as a Greenseer, he'd have been able to foresee both the dragons coming and the spot with the chains and the ice lake (so Viserion would be submerged and unable to be burned by Jon Snow and company) as the ideal confluence of factors in procuring an ice dragon.

So yeah, Drogon should have turned his head and possibly wiped out the White Walkers completely instead of sitting there like a doofus and taking out an army of underlings, but things go sideways pretty quickly if you start wondering about the logic of season seven.

If when the dead finally get to the Wall we see a wight or White Walker touch it and explode, this is what we'll expect to happen.

"Only he doesn't think of that the children of the forest won't recognise him from the future, and that they at that point are in war with the first men (he is gagged because of all the wierd future-talk)". But now Jon knows that the easiest way to take out the entire threat of the White Walkers is to destroy the Night King himself.

Is that why the White Walkers were headed there? By killing huge numbers of them with a single stroke, like Jon did.

Wights, on the other hand, are your standard zombie-style minions. For example have you noticed how the Night King's appearance has changed since Hardhome?

But where did the White Walkers get those chains?

In order to go to the depth of this theory you first need to understand the phenomenal combination of powers that makes Bran Stark exceptional. Because now that the Night King has his own dragon, he seems to have new options to get by the Wall, despite its magical protections, spells, and charms that Benjen "Coldhands" Stark told Bran and Meera have thus far prevented the dead from passing through.

Based on the lore from George R.R. Martin's source material, only 1/1000 children have the ability to warg into other creatures, and 1/1000 of those children possess greensight - including prophetic dreams, visions, time travel and so forth.

What these creative theories have in common with the one about Bran? They don't even necessarily have to target the Night King specifically; they could eat away at the normal White Walkers and make a dent in the army big enough to push the Night King back and perhaps eventually defeat him.

Whether you believe the theory that Bran is the Night King or not, the similarities between their abilities can not be ignored.
