Game of Thrones Season 8 is finally here and we have already seen 3 episodes out of the total 6. The last episode ended with the death of the Night King and with him the white Walkers that were bent out of shape to overtake the living world.
With only 3 episodes left in its pocket, fans are now wondering about the role of Bran Stark in the show. So far we know him as the Three-Eyed Raven, but some Game of Thrones season 8 spoiler theories seem to suggest that he may be The Lord of Light as well.
Game of Thrones Season 8: Bran Stark is the nemesis of Night King
His recent confrontation with the Night King seems to have fueled this new hypothesis. People believe that Bran is the one who is fighting with the Night King, and that is what the Lord of Light supposedly meant to do, so maybe the youngest Stark is, in fact, the Lord of Light.
He gave Arya the weapon
Bran Stark also gave Arya the dagger that ultimately killed the Night King, and he offered himself as bait to lure him out. The Redditor that brought this up wrote,
“The simplest explanation to all of this …The Three-Eyed Raven is the Night King’s opposite. The Night King’s opposite is the Lord of Light. Therefore, Bran = the Lord of Light.”
Only time will tell how much the GOT spoiler theory holds water. For now, all we can do is wait and watch. Catch the 4th episode of Game of Thrones’ final Season on HBO at 9:00 p.m. on Sunday.
