As most of you are probably aware by now, we often like to emphasize the importance of history repeating itself in the "A Song of Ice and Fire" and "Game of Thrones" universe. And because of that, we often use past legends in an attempt to figure out how the story will unfold. One of such legends is the 8,000 years old tale of how the Last Hero ended the Long Night. And with the second coming of the White Walkers and all the prophecies, we are led to believe that this tale will be recreated in the future.

While there's no doubt that we'll get a version of the Long Night legend in "Game of Thrones" Season 8, we are going to take the idea of history repeating itself one step further by saying that history might not be the history at all, but a version of the events we are yet to see.

As crazy as it may sound, this is actually possible. So let's put this idea into some context, shall we?

A different take on the Long Night legend

According to Reddit user Marstead, the Long Night actually never happened and neither did the story of the Last Hero. The theory suggests that Bran Stark will, at some point in the future, somehow be able to go several thousand years back in time in order to ensure people are ready to fight the Army of the Dead. To convince them, he will need to tell a couple of stories.

He will tell the story of his cousin, Jon Snow, the Last Hero who went far North, with his companions in an attempt to defeat the White Walkers who descendent upon the realms of men and threatened to wipe humans from the face of the world.

He will tell his own story of how he found the Children of The Forest, who eventually helped mankind fight off the darkness. And there's the tale of Nissa Nissa and the forging of Lightbringer. And that might hint at Daenerys' future role, an idea which we already covered in one of the previous articles.

However, over the course of time, people merged some tales and separated the others to get the story of the Long Night as we know it today.

Could Bran be Brandon the Builder?

Also, we can even go one step further by saying that Bran could be the legendary Brandon the Builder, the founder of House Stark, who built the Crypts of Winterfell, Storm's End and most notably the Wall. And if you think this idea is too far-fetched, just take a look at the clip below.

If you look closely at 0:35 you can see that Brandon the Builder is getting carried on a sled. And what other characters do we know who can't walk? That's right -- Bran Stark.
