WARNING: The following article contains spoilers Game of Thrones season eight, episode three.
The third instalment saw Bran Stark (played by Isaac Hempstead-Wright) hiding in the Godswood as he awaited the arrival of the Night King (Vladimir Furdik).
Sure enough, the Night King arrived and looked poised to kill Bran, also known as the Three-Eyed Raven but he was stopped at the last minute.
Bran’s sister Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) could be seen lunging towards the Night King, who caught her and held her up by the neck.
As she struggled in his grasp, she dropped the Valyrian steel dagger given to her in season seven by Bran.
Before it hit the floor, she grabbed it and plunged it into the Night King’s chest shattering him into a tiny thousand pieces.
The rest of the army of the dead then disappeared along with the White Walkers the Night King had controlled and it looked like the war with the dead was over.
But one fan thinks the Night King and the dead were defeated too easily and there is more to the story than meets the eye.
In fact, they believe when Bran warged he went back in time to make a deal with the Night King.
Reddit user ColdBeing wrote: “This was truly an amazing episode and the director did a fantasic job on the battle.
“But.. they hyped up The Night King for seasons upon seasons, years upon years and this is how he goes out? There’s just no way. This plot is so stupid. I think there’s more going on then what meets the eye.
“Why else was Bran warged for so long? Could it be going back in time to prevent all this bloodshed? Could he have been making a deal with The Night King?
“When The Night King walked up to Bran, he looked like he accepted his fate. I just feel like The Night King is Bran, The Night King was going to kill Bran to destroy himself.
“I mean the way The Night King just looked at Bran, it felt like he had to do it when he didn’t want to. Arya ruined the plans for Bran.
“After all this and then they’re already going to battle with Cersei? Something just doesn’t feel right.”
Could Arya have stopped Bran from really destroying the Night King and could the leader of the dead make a surprise return later in the series?
Or is the Night King not truly dead and has somehow made himself become part of Bran?
If so, it would confirm the theory that Bran is the Night King or can at least control him in some way.
While the survivors at Winterfell believe the battle with the dead is over, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) is determined to head south.
The Mother of Dragons has always been set on sitting on the Iron Throne and it looks like she may finally have her chance.
In the trailer for season eight, episode four, she can be seen declaring Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) needs to be ripped out of Westeros.
While it seems Daenerys could be the one to take on Cersei, a remark by Melisandre (Carice Van Houtem) may have revealed Arya will kill her.
She noted how Arya will kill those with “blue eyes”, which included the Night King, and those with “green eyes”, which would mean Cersei.
Has Melisandre confirmed Arya will get to complete her kill list and finally murder Cersei?
Game of Thrones continues Sunday on HBO in the USA and the following day on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
