This Game of Thrones Season 8 Theory Might Ruin The Stark Name

Published

on

The new Game of Thrones season comes out in a month, making fan theories proliferate faster than ever. Since season seven left us with some dramatic realizations, there is no telling where the final episodes will take us. However, this one fan theory would make a surely interesting ending for the most beloved show on HBO. Here’s what you need to know about the Stark-White Walker bloodline theory.

Brandon The Builder And The First ‘Long Night’

In George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, the formation of the House Stark is explained. In the first “Long Night,” a war between the Children of the Forest and the First Men ensues. Eventually, they ban together to defeat their common enemy, the White Walkers (just as the Westerosi and WIldlings are now). After the war, Brandon the Builder created The Wall and founded Winterfell, thus beginning the Starks of Winterfell.

In the T.V. series, House Stark commemorates their heritage. They repeat over and over again, “there must always be a Stark in Winterfell” and are seemingly the only house who actually takes the whole “Winter is coming” thing seriously. However, there is more to the Stark story than meets the eye.

The Night King And His Corpse Queen

After Brandon the Builder, a man known as the Night’s King (not the Night King in the show) and his wife lived in Winterfell. His wife is described as having “skin as white as the moon and eyes like blue stars,” which implies she was potentially a White Walker. The Night King and his corpse wife made many sacrifices to the White Walkers (like Craster from the show) before the reigning Stark Brandon the Breaker put an end to them.

This is where the story gets muddy. One theory suggests that Brandon the Breaker was unable to kill the child of the Night King and his undead wife. So, he decided to raise the half-human child, and thus muddied the bloodline of the Starks with White Walker blood.

Will Season Eight Tie In This Wild Theory?

Details from the show could point towards this theory. The Stark family sword was named “Ice,” potentially because of their heritage, and the phrase “Winter is coming” could have once been used as a threat, rather than a warning.

This theory would make for a poetic series finale, as Westeros’ only hope against the White Walkers now is Jon Snow, a Targaryen highborn with both Stark and White Walker blood. Hopefully, we will find out April 14th what the true song of ice and fire was meant to be.
