'Game of Thrones': Is Bran Secretly the Night King?

Dany's conquest, paired with the growth of her dragons, sent the Night King's actions into motion. Why they didn't listen to Bran and turned him into the Night King?

"It's actually molded off of my face - way back a few years ago we did a cast of me, and they basically created prosthetics to go onto my face, my arms as well and pretty much down to my chest", Richard explained about how he gets into character. If the life of an individual White Walker determines the existence of individual wights, might the life of the Night King determine the existence of White Walkers?

One of the most important moments of Bran's journey from regular kid (or, as regular as a kid can be in Westeros) to the new Three-Eyed Raven is when he witnesses the Children of the Forest create the first White Walker.

Pupils praised as GCSE results are released
Maths retained a very good set of results despite its increased complexity, with 73 per cent achieving a standard pass or more. An incredible 29 students achieved A* or above (8 or above on the new GSCE grading scale) in all their subjects.

The difference between these two creatures was more evident than ever in last week's episode "Beyond the Wall", as we discovered that wights are tied to the fate of the white walker that reanimated them. They may look human-like, but they have wispy white hair, otherworldly pale skin and terrifying ice-blue eyes. Something about that interaction destroyed the magical protection of that tree, and it all happened because Bran was up against a mental opponent whose powers he neither understood nor planned for. Depending on how long they were deceased before reanimation understandably determines their appearance. That got the Night King's attention.

The Night King is the leader of the undead White Walkers in the HBO show (in the "Song of Ice and Fire" books, George R.R. Martin prefers to call him the Night's King, and only mentions him briefly). And what does it mean for the end of Game of Thrones? The problem is, there are several reasons why the "Bran is the #Night King" theory isn't very plausible.

Trump Says US Likely to Terminate NAFTA
During the 2016 campaign, he blasted NAFTA as a bad deal for American workers, blaming it for an exodus of U.S.jobs to Mexico. Although many Americans have benefited from NAFTA, Lighthizer said that the agreement has "failed. countless Americans".

"Bran believes he is eventually (with more knowledge) going to be able to rewrite history and that's why he decides to go back and stop the Night king several times, but fails every time, ending up fulfilling the timeline-circle and taking the identity of the Night king himself", writes Turm0il26. Bran not only has the capability to warn in a to human that something most wargs can not do, if there's any, he also prophetic dreams, green eyesight, and visions. The Three-eyed Raven did say the "ink is dry" on the past despite the past not being as concrete as we think, so that comment would fit this theory, but it would also feel like a letdown since it means no one had any freewill in the story. Clearly, Daenerys would have loved if the battle had ended with all three of her children still alive, but it might have been worth losing Viserion to get some insight on defeating the White Walkers before they're able to fully invade the Seven Kingdoms. Some have noted that Bran, The Night King and the man viewed in the flashback all adopt the same pose, and that Bran and The Night King share similar costumes. Even if Jon and the others were to get close enough, it's hard to say what they could use to actually take down the Night King once and for all.
