Why is Bran Stark the Night Kings Target? | Game of Thrones Season 8 Theory | Ancient Enemies

  • Published: 11 March 2019
  • Game of Thrones Season 8 is less than 40 Days away! The Game of Thrones Season 8 Trailer dropped last week. Game of Thrones News was coming out left and right it was hard to keep up with all of The Season 8 Juice from last week! One thing that came out of last week was a Game of Thrones Season 8 interview that Entertainment Weekly did with the actor who plays the Night King. The Night King is the leader of the White walkers and the most mysterious character in the entire Game of Thrones TV Series, The three eye crow or Three Eyed raven is also another mysterious character in Game of Thrones! An interview with the Night King is rare I actually couldn't find another interview that the Night King has done so props to James Hibbard for snagging that interview! The Night King answered some questions and I will address two of them in this Video. The Night King wanting Revenge and the Night King having a target! In this video I will address why Bran Stark is the Night King's Target! In my opinon the only person that the Night King is Targeting is Bran, But Why? Thanks For Watching, Please Subscribe:)

                i have this theory, but i think the white walkers weren't the true evil, the three eyed raven is, the white walkers keep the three eyed rave imprisoned in the north, the last hero was the night king... and Jon seems to be following the same journey "losing all his friends", ect. My theory is Jon has to become the new night king and kill bran, who continues to manipulate everything once he got south of the wall I also theorize Bran is the lord of light and has been changing the past as well...

                      I think knight King is Bran. I remember someone telling Bran not to stay too long in the past or he'll be stuck there forever (something like that) so I think in the future, Bran stayed too long in the past (during the time of the children of the forest ). The children used older bran and made him into the knight King because of what he is(three eyed raven(I think they were rare at that time)) . Knight King/Bran waited until Bran Bran was born and old enough (that's why the walkers never lurked outside of their 'home' for 150 years until now
                      . Knight King wants to kill Bran Bran so that he doesnt get stuck in the past and become Knight King... And its all a loop, Lol you know what I mean?

                                The night king is after Bran ..Arya kills the night king but he is still alive as long as Bran is alive.

                                            8 seasons worth of White Walker doom and gloom ending with the Night King and all 100,000 of them keeling over at the end of a 90 minute episode was a big cop out.

                                              I think Bran is evil and Arya will kill him because he has the green eyes melisandre was speaking of. Hes the Greenseer

                                                    Children of the forest created Night King. Children of the forest also created 3 eyed raven to defeat Night King. Hence, Night King wanted to kill 3 eyed raven which is Bran now. Saved your 13 minutes.

                                                      @Simon Andovski everything happens for a reason. Its more like Bran was plotting everything going back and forth in time to become the king of 6 kingdoms eventually.

                                                    Maybe the three-eyed raven has been lying to Bran all along and he is the real villain with a hidden agenda. Remember when Old Nan told Bran all crows are liars? Also, Bran will be going to God's eye and something major will happen.

Now i got to scramble and reconnect what i thought hahahhahaa. I wish they do reveal in the end, the true history of the beginning of the war and i have a feeling, the first eye raven evven saw what would happen in the future, therefore, it came to this. not only the knowledge will be pass down, but, part of him and the past third eye raven will be included in the sim card too? hahhhahahaa. yeah.

Who ever the Ice King was before must of been a King or Strong Knight who killed the previous Night King so now I'm sure over the next few episodes we will see Arya Stark become the Night King and I got a awesome feeling who the first 2 people she's going to ressurect her Father and Mother allowing for a show down between Jon Snow and Edd and Catelyn Stark. How can one fight his Father and Step Mother.

                                                                                    Game of Thrones 7x07 - Sansa and Arya Conversation

                                                                                    Arya: In winter we must protect ourselves… look after one another.
                                                                                    Sansa: Father
                                                                                    Arya: There must always be a Stark in Winterfell. He used to say that too.
                                                                                    Sansa: And mother. Although they never explained why.
                                                                                    Arya: I once heard Rob teasing Rickon that he knew the secret of why. Father put a stop to it with one sharp look. He could do that.
                                                                                    They both pause a very brief second as if reminiscing.
                                                                                    Sansa: When the snows fall and the white wind blow the loan wolf dies but the pack survives.
                                                                                    Arya: I miss him.
                                                                                    Sansa: Me too.

                                                                                    (There are only 3 lines that are added here. Nothing more. But, it adds A WORLD of information to the scene). Brian could later be used to tell the secret in the scene where he explains the Night Kings end game. There would be a much better reason than he just wants to kill people.

                                                                                    Game of thrones 8×02 II Bran reveals the night king's motive

                                                                                    Bran: He’ll come for me. He’s tried before many times with many 3-eyed ravens.
                                                                                    Sam: Why? What does he want?
                                                                                    Bran: Reunion and retribution. He wants to reunite with his Blue Rose so together they can repopulate the world with endless night.
                                                                                    Dany: His Blue Rose?
                                                                                    Bran: They were married, you see. The Night King and his Queen. But, when the wall was created she was trapped here in our crypts and he beyond the wall.
                                                                                    [NOTE: There is text in the books to support this information.]
                                                                                    Sam: So why not just give him the bones of his dead wife and let that be the end of it?
                                                                                    Bran: After thousands of years I can’t imagine there is little more than dust left, and the crypts are acres and acres of buried rubble. No one living would know how or where to find what’s left of her. Even I can’t see exactly where she is… only that she exists.
                                                                                    Sam: If you can’t see where she is what does he want with you?
                                                                                    Bran: He needs the life force of a 3-eyed Raven to bring her back to her full powerful glory. With her he can go bring forth an endless night and repopulate the world with the dead.
                                                                                    Sam: Can’t he do that by just continuing to kill humans.
                                                                                    Bran: But, with that there is a limit. Being able to procreate death would bring an endless supply of the dead to last forever.
                                                                                    Sam: So together they would be able to make dead babies that would grow and stay dead forever?
                                                                                    Bran: And by getting rid of all humanity and end all life he would have his final revenge on those who caused him and his Queen to suffer apart for thousands of years. The North may remember but he wants all mankind to forget. In death they can’t remember.
                                                                                    Sam: If I wanted to erase the world of men I would start with you.
                                                                                    Tyrian: How will he find you?
                                                                                    Bran: His mark is on me. He always knows where I am.
                                                                                    Jon: We’ll put you in the crypt where it’s safest.
                                                                                    Bran: No. There was a time when he could not have entered the crypt or even Winterfell although he may have seen my mark. He and his creations were locked out.
                                                                                    Sam: What about his Queen. She wasn’t locked out.
                                                                                    Bran: She was not created by him. But, the protective spell was broken when there were no more Starks in Winterfell. For thousands of years we have known there must always be a Stark in Winterfell. Most of us couldn't’ remember why. Our blood was the substance upon which the spell was forged. When the last Stark left Winterfell the spell was broken. Now, he can move through Winterfell freely.
                                                                                    Sam: Is there no hope?
                                                                                    Bran: We need to lure him into the open before he army destroys us all. I’ll wait for him in the Godswood.
                                                                                    Sansa: You want us to use you as bait?
                                                                                    Arya: We’re not leaving you alone out there.
                                                                                    Theon: He won’t be alone.

                                                                                    {OK, this is NOT perfect. But, I am not a big fancy Hollywood writer and it took me all of 20 minutes to write this version. I humbly think it is a bit better than just leaving all those plot holes. In the hands of their fancy Hollywood writers I am sure they could improve upon my words here. But, even this would have been better than saying the Night King kills just because he wants to get rid of people. In other words he is bad just because he is evil. After 8 years of studying the history and character backstories I really wanted a better reason. Love, the seeking of it, the absence of it are the strongest forces on the planet. Combine that with the desire/need to procreate and you have a powerful force. Is there ANYTHING on this planet that does not want or need to procreate? There are very few things (human or otherwise) who do not respond in some way to some form of love. I just wish the show writers could have given us something more.}

So, the Night King was always destined to fail killing Bran, because Bran is yet to cause his creation. As the 3 eyed raven, I also think that he knew/knows in advance how events are supposed to play out, but remains impartial regarding taking any sides. He merely does what "needs" to be done. Just like the previous 3 eyed raven said about the past: "the ink is dry". As in - you can not change the past. So if Bran DOES warg into the past to create the Night King, it is inevitable and will happen later in the future.
