WARNING: Hey, if you’re here, we’re assuming you’re a Game of Thrones fan and are up-to-date, because this post will contain some big ole Tormund-sized spoilers for Game of Thrones season 8. If you’re not caught up on the latest episode, bookmark us and come back once you’re ready to properly debrief.
But, thanks to some clever thinking and an intense knowledge of the history of Westeros, many of these theories have good legs to stand on.
Like the theory Arya Stark isn’t actually Arya anymore, but the Waif who stabbed her way back in season 6. Or the one where Daenerys Targaryen will become the Night Queen – yeah, that one’s a bit bleak.
However, never mind about those, because we need to talk about the new theory that predicts exactly how Bran Stark can kill the Night King once and for bloody all.
First, a quick recap:
Towards the end of season 8 episode 2, a plan was hatched by all the major players – Jon Snow, Dany, Sansa and Arya Stark, Tyrion and Jaime Lannister, Tormund, Ser Brienne of Tarth, Ser Davos Seaworth, Theon Greyjoy etc. – to defeat the White Walkers by killing their maker, the Night King.
