Jon Snow may be the most competent person to fight the White Walkers, but it is Bran Stark who shares the deepest connection to their vicious leader, the Night King. With that said, it stands the reason that he will be the one who will bring victory to mankind. So today (July 12), exploring yet another mind-blowing theory by YouTube user Gray Area, I'll be going over some clues from both the "Game of Thrones" TV show and the "A Song of Ice and Fire" books that point to the fact that Bran Stark isn't just the last greenseer, but the Last Hero as well.

The Night King isn't interested in Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen

A lot of people, these days, seem to believe that the fate of mankind will be determined in one big showdown between Jon Snow and the Night King. But the truth is, that except for a few haunting stares in the "Hardome" and "Beyond the Wall" episodes, they didn't really share much. So having these two fight to the death, won't do this incredible story justice. There has to be more than that.

As I said, Jon Snow may be experienced in killing the White Walkers and all, but something tells me that getting rid of the Night King won't be that simple. Not to mention the fact that he already had a dragonglass plunged into his heart, so sticking him with a pointy end won't do the trick, even if the pointy end is made of Valyrian steel.

Besides, if the Night King is really after Jon Snow, he would have killed him already. After all, he already had a chance.

The same goes for Daenerys Targaryen, who was literally just in front of the Night King in the "Beyond the Wall" episode when he chose to throw the javelin at Viserion. It was as if he wasn't interested in anything else but acquiring a dragon so he could breach the Wall and get to Bran.

Bran Stark is the only one who matters

Unlike that whole "Beyond the Wall" shenanigans, the Night King attacked the Three-eyed Raven's cave at full force just minutes after touching Bran in his vision. No weird staredowns, no showing off his javelin skills, just a need to to get to Bran. And that's exactly what the Three-eyed raven confirmed, as soon as he realized what happened.

Fortunately, Bran got out of the cave with the help of his uncle, who then straight up told him who the Night King's target really is. "One way or another he would find his way into the world of men and when he does, you'll be there waiting for him." And let's not forget what Jojen Reed told Bran all the way back in "Game of Thrones" Season 3. While discussing Jojen's green dreams, Bran asked him: "What else have you seen?" To which Jojen replied: "The only thing that matters, you." Check out the scene down below.

How will Bran defeat the Night King?

On top of being the Last Hero, Bran is, according to Gray Area, the Prince that Was Promised as well. This is supported by the fact that, unlike Daenerys, who is queen, and Jon, who was born a king (that's why the Kingsguard was guarding the Tower of Joy), Bran is the only one of the three who has been referred to as the prince when his brother Robb was the King in the North.

Now, as far as defeating the Night King is concerned, Gray Area thinks that Bran and Sam will find out that the Night King was the Stark of Winterfell before he was turned into the White Walker. That's how Bran will be able to warg into someone from that period and kill that Stark man who was supposed to be turned into the Night King. While this would erase all the White Walkers from the present timeline, it would also erase Bran's own family, the Starks we all know and love. And if that's not bittersweet, I don't know what is.
