'Game of Thrones' character shows off amazing arm and fans made all the Jets QB jokes

SEE IT: Fans believe the Jets should make the Night King their QB following Sunday's episode of 'Game of Thrones'

Warning: This post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6, "Beyond the Wall." .

A theory with huge fan-support claims that Bran's greenseeing causes him to become trapped inside the Night King, essentially creating the villain that is now marching south. Bran's powers have been developing throughout the show, having connected past and present versions of Hodor in a closed time-loop, forcing the gentle giant to "hold the door" and even forcing poor Hodor to kill Locke outside of Craster's Keep in Season 4. Why would the Lord of Light give the same visions to the Hound that eventually led to the Night King's procurement of a dragon? Would it also kill the other White Walkers, too?

Given the slowly building tension between Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow, whose house sigils are a dragon and a wolf respectively, and the tender moment they shared in last week's episode in which Jon finally agreed to bend the knee, the episode title could be alluding to the relationship many fans have been rooting for. While heartbreaking for Dany and game-changing for the White Walkers, some fans think Viserion's death might've been worth the knowledge gained about the Night King, White Walkers and wights.

By creating a Night King video, you'll join the ranks of Thrones' very own Kristofer Hivju - who plays Tormund Giantsbane.

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

But as terrifying a notion as a White Walker-piloted, blue-eyed wight dragon burning down The Wall is - there's an even crazier notion to address first: the Night King is a time-monitoring Greenseer - just like Bran - and a far more powerful one at that.

Tim Cook: Apple will invest $1.3 billion in Iowa
The data center will cost $1.3 billion and will bring with it about 550 construction and operations jobs to the area. Similarly to its other hubs, Apple plans to power the data centres by using 100% renewable energy.

The theory, which originated on Forbes, stated: "I'm beginning to suspect that the Lord of Light is not on the side of life, but a god of war, a bit like Wonder Woman's Ares". Oh yeah, and they BROUGHT HUGE FRICKIN' CHAINS.

Even with what little we know about the Night King, the evidence is there.

This idea is key to how the Night King has such a diverse army behind him, rather than just a barrage of reanimated corpses.

The only reason the Night King was able to take down Viserion in the first place was because Dany (Emilia Clarke) flew with her dragon children beyond the Wall to rescue Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and his fellow warriors from an invasion of wights, after Gendry (Joe Dempsie) ran back to Eastwatch to send SOS ravens to Khaleesi.

The question of why is pretty obvious on the surface: he wanted a dragon. You should not be able to defeat magic by loophole.

In "Beyond the Wall", Beric Dondarrion suggests that killing the Night King should theoretically take down the entire army of the undead. Needless to say, it looks like the Season 7 finale is going to be a deadly one.
