Game of Thrones is on its way back at the beginning of next year, so people are binge-watching past seasons and throwing theories around all willy nilly.
Fans have one particular theory regarding Bran Stark that may be a little too real and logical. I won't go too deep into explaining it because people are also getting incredibly butt-hurt about spoilers.
This is one of the most persisting theories in the GoT fandom. Is Bran Stark really the Night King?
According to @AmeriKraut, YES. Bran is 100% the Night King.
She posted a picture of Bran side-by-side with a picture of the Night King saying, "i can't wait to see if there's any truth to my suspicions."

Multiple followers go back and forth with the user with their own thoughts regarding this particular theory.
Bran Stark is Bram the builder who is also the Nights King. A Stark must always stay in Winterfell— Dread Pirate Roberts (@Laughin_Man) September 4, 2018
I could be wrong but the fact that Ned could hear him in the flashback and the Nights King could touch him, makes me think Bran is a time traveler— Dread Pirate Roberts (@Laughin_Man) September 4, 2018
well we know bran is a time traveler because of what he did to hodor. i also think he made the mad king mad.— in charge of the girls (@AmeriKraut) September 4, 2018
I think he mad the mad king mad by accident. He was trying to tell him about the white walkers but the messege wasn't coming thru clearly.— Dread Pirate Roberts (@Laughin_Man) September 4, 2018
i think that's the whole game: bran's f*ck ups— in charge of the girls (@AmeriKraut) September 4, 2018
I think it's bran because after he built Winterfell then he went north and never came back. But then Winterfell was attacked by the Nights King and the horn was blown and the wall was constructed— Dread Pirate Roberts (@Laughin_Man) September 4, 2018
This all began when fans started to make correlations between Bran and the Night King, saying the two wore the same kinds of clothes and even walk the same.
When asked by the Hollywood Reporter if he believes the theory to be true, the actor who plays Bran, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, answered, "I don't know. I think it's a little bit far-fetched. But the whole Hodor thing, if I had read that as a theory, I would have said, "Nah, this is crazy." So, who knows? Although I have to say, people are now comparing my face to the Night King and going, "Yeah! It's him! It's over, there's no question about it!" And I'm like, "I don't look that much like the Night King, do I?"
I definitely have to go back and watch all of the previous seasons (and maybe read the books) to really decided for myself whether or not this is true, OR maybe I can just wait for season 8 of GoT!
Do you think everything is because of Bran?
