    The guy that Ned Stark executed would've been executed by literally any Lord in the 7 kingdoms. Leaving your duty as a man of the Night's Watch means you get executed. It's a rule.
    And the direwolves they adopted at the beginning isn't much of a bad sign either. They found orphaned little wolves and saved their lives. How does that make them not the brady bunch?

    jon snow the living "song of ice and fire" as he has both ice from his mother and fire from his father in his blood...not all targaryen are "dragons" same as not all starks are "white walker"....maybe ned didn have the blood of the white walker inside of him but his sister lyanna did....maybe he didn come back to life because of the "lord of light" but he came back cause of his white walker blood....truely the prince that was promised cause he was a "prince at birth"

  • theshamlock

    I'm glad to see someone else with this theory about Jon becoming the Night King. Whoever helped shape the lore for World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King (Chris Metzen, Christie Golden, others?) must have been a Song of Ice & Fire fan because what happens in that story could very well happen in Game of Thrones, and the Lich King story was that particular writer's creative license inspired (a little bit) Martin's story. I believe that coincidentally, the two stories will be similar.
    tl;dr for below: Jon is indeed a king, but he may take the place of the Night King, rather than become King in the North again or Ruler of the 7 Kingdoms, in order to keep the army of the dead in check (the Others, anyway) and away from humanity for as long as his willpower holds out. The Night King may be killed, but perhaps there must always be a Night King, just like there must always be a Stark in Winterfell.
    The parallels between Wrath of the Lich King and A Song of Ice & Fire:
    A Storm of Swords was likely already released (2000) when the Warcraft stories about Tirion Fordring and Arthas a.k.a. the Lich King were first developed (please correct me if I'm wrong). There are parallels between the two tales: from the similarity of the name of a main character in the Lich King story, Tirion Fordring (which is produced the same as Tyrion), to the army of undead including undead horses and yes, even an undead ice dragon, and this undead army's main outpost being in the bitterly cold Northrend, the nothernmost climate of the world of Azeroth. The Lich King commands this massive army of the dead from his Frozen Throne and if he dies, the dead will be left to run amok and wreak havoc. So they cannot simply kill him and call it a day. There must always be a Lich King to maintain control of this dangerous army of the dead. Tirion was about to put on the helmet of the Lich King, and become the new undead commander himself (thereby losing most of his humanity), but he is stopped by Bolvar Fordragon, who was previously slain in battle, resurrected by the Lich King and tortured mercilessly. Bolvar volunteers to be the new jailer of the risen dead and keep them under control. Tirion places the helmet upon Bolvar's head and Bolvar takes his seat upon the Frozen Throne, becoming encased in ice, warning the living who witness the event to consider him dead and to leave and never return.

      Oh, and in a huge meta moment, the scene of the Lich King's army, complete with ice dragon flying above, from the trailer for Wrath of the Lich King looks very similar to the last scene from season 7 where the army of the dead is marching into Westeros after the wall comes down. Looks like there are some working on Game of Thrones inspired of World of Warcraft, as well!
      I find it interesting how both seem to pay fan service to the other. OR it could just be a huge coincidence!

    Yo hold up... If the starks are descendents of white walkers and they are all buried in the crypt, why is it decided that everyone should hide in the crypt in the war against the dead? Coincidence? I don't think so... Bran had a dream of his father returning to the crypt, so what if it is not meant as a resting place... What if it's meant as a defence, that if the "magic" protecting winterfell is meant as a warning system to the souls in the crypt to awaken when blood magic crossesits path!

    This could be the end in the AMASSING BOOK. The Big Brother Propaganda machine catch the show. When GoT got out of the tight niche,and become world wide phenomenon.Not because the amassing Story,Character or World, but for OUR,People NEED OF SHADES OF GRAY. Even in Westeros with dragons.People act more realistic then in ALL (99.7%) of Hollywood movies. Ironically the same was the dead of the show.
    P.S. If they repeat any LIE enough time people take it.Manly the GOOD-we VS EVIL-they.If Americans understand or just start to think. It is too dangerous for the "Kakistocracy". One good think:we have the books,they are save.Its impossible reading to be mainstream(in US)

    Here's a theory that starts share wildling blood but they also share Children of the forest but that was supposed White Walker that the night sky more than likely was a child of the forest which would explain the type of powers that run through the Stark family bloodline and their connection to the old gods and weirwood trees

    Interesting theory but to me it feels like the fact that Jon is half Targaryen (so half 'fire' as well) seems to be swept under the carpet a bit too much. I think this fact will and should play a bigger role in him battling the Night King and the White Walkers.

  • WafflingMean44
    WafflingMean44 3 days ago

    I don't think any of this will happen in the show. The writers know all the casual fans want is for Jon to 1v1 the Night King. In the books though it would be very interesting to see Jon faced with such a choice. Maybe the White Walker blood of Starks allows them to be turned. You would think that if the White Walkers just needed any baby, they would steal children all the time. But they only take the ones willingly given to them because those are the only ones that can turn. Or perhaps the Wildlings that sacrifice to them also have the blood of White Walkers. Perhaps that is why Craster had sex with his daughters to produce children. To keep the bloodline as pure as possible to ensure his children could turn. In the books it is very clear that Craster's wives know their sons are White Walkers, when they say Gilly's sons "brothers" will come for him.
    So perhaps if Starks have the blood of White Walkers, they can be turned into White Walkers if the proper ritual is undertaken. Perhaps that is part of why the Night King wants Bran. Maybe he doesn't want him dead, but rather wants to turn him and his powers over to their side. And/or the Starks may have been promised to the White Walkers, and so that makes it possible as well. The Night King was described as something of a sorcerer. Perhaps he was turned into a White Walker.
