Is the Night King a Greenseer?

The Night King showed off his brutal throwing arm in the latest episode Beyond The Wall, cementing himself as a worthy adversary and a pretty badass leader of the White Walkers. It's been a season in which not even leaks of the episodes in advance could challenge the show's ratings, and thanks to the huge game-changer at the end of the last episode the stage is set for an anything-can-happen sort of finale.

There was also the scene earlier this season where Bran tried to watch the undead army through the eyes of a raven, and the Night King pushed him out.

Game of Thrones airs Sunday at 9 p.m. EST on HBO. Keep scrolling to learn more about the Night King! While this seems ridiculous on the surface, it actually makes a lot of sense when you start diving into 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.

Westerosi legends tell of ice dragons whose cold breath freezes men as quickly as dragonflame melts them, but there are no stories of fire-breathing dragons being raised by the Night King. Luckily, a new theory about the Night King's abilities has emerged, and it's so convincing that we desperately need it to be canon. Shortly before the Night King takes down Viserion, there's a shot of the rest of the White Walkers seated on horseback behind him. We know that anything the Night King creates will die with him. 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.

The same is true for the "Samus' Gunship" Battle-Car, arriving with two designs based on different Varia Suits of Samus Aran. The " Mario NSR" shows up only in the Orange Team while the "Luigi NSR" appears only in the Blue Team.

So is the Night King simply a powerful Greenseer that was turned to the side of the White Walkers by the Children?

They'll walk around it on the frozen seas near Eastwatch.


Why would Bran be the Night King?

The strength of the army of the dead comes from their massive numbers and lack of fear.

The Night's King left his post to be with someone who sounds like a White Walker woman, and the two reigned for 13 years from the Nightfort until they were stopped. So how do you defeat such an enormous, terrifying force? It means that everything that has happened until this point has been going according to his plan, or at least he has been able to attempt to influence the future by seeing how things might go. Needless to say, it looks like the Season 7 finale is going to be a deadly one.
