Gilly's SECOND Discovery!! = a Clue to the Night King’s Secret Identity | Game of Thrones Seasons 8

  • Published: 12 December 2018
  • In this video, we review a scene that I missed until last week. In this scene lie clues to two of the biggest questions going into Game of Thrones Season 8: Who is the Night King? And how will they defeat the Night King and the White Walker Army of the Dead?

    This video is both an analysis of events from past seasons of HBO
    s "Game of Thrones" as well as Game of Thrones Season 8 theories and Game of Thrones Season 8 predictions.

    “When will he be as he was?” Dany demanded. “When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east,” said Mirri Maz Duur. “When the seas go dry and mountains blow in the wind like leaves. When your womb quickens again, and you bear a living child. Then he will return, and not before.” (AGOT, Danaerys IX)

    AS THE FIRST MEN established their realms following the Pact, little troubled them save their own feuds and wars, or so the histories tell us. It is also from these histories that we learn of the Long Night, when a season of winter came that lasted a generation—a generation in which children were born, grew into adulthood, and in many cases died without ever seeing the spring. Indeed, some of the old wives’ tales say that they never even beheld the light of day, so complete was the winter that fell on the world. While this last may well be no more than fancy, the fact that some cataclysm took place many thousands of years ago seems certain. Lomas Longstrider, in his Wonders Made by Man, recounts meeting descendants of the Rhoynar in the ruins of the festival city of Chroyane who have tales of a darkness that made the Rhoyne dwindle and disappear, her waters frozen as far south as the joining of the Selhoru. According to these tales, the return of the sun came only when a hero convinced Mother Rhoyne’s many children—lesser gods such as the Crab King and the Old Man of the River—to put aside their bickering and join together to sing a secret song that brought back the day. It is also written that there are annals in Asshai of such a darkness, and of a hero who fought against it with a red sword. His deeds are said to have been performed before the rise of Valyria, in the earliest age when Old Ghis was first forming its empire. This legend has spread west from Asshai, and the followers of R’hllor claim that this hero was named Azor Ahai, and prophesy his return. In the Jade Compendium, Colloquo Votar recounts a curious legend from Yi Ti, which states that the sun hid its face from the earth for a lifetime, ashamed at something none could discover, and that disaster was averted only by the deeds of a woman with a monkey’s tail.

      I'm more blown away by the fact that they found the Horn of Winter in the second season that can resurrect all the dead Starks to fight against the Night King... bitches. They are not gonna include it in the show, aren't they...

      Leslie M. Isaacs what if the Night King turns the babies as his own way of having lab rats for a cure? He can’t test himself because he might kill himself.

      He was on to something talking about “the son rises in the west and sets in the east” coz dany will be with drogo and her son in death as drogon was born in the west and carries danys dead body with him to set in the east
      Well I mean he wasn’t born in the west, but he travels west to east with dany

                                      My theory was close to what happened except i also thought Bran was the night king and he would die when the night king does or some madness. Arya using a dead face i think was always a very strong possibility, who else could get close enough to kill him

                                                              Really cool theory but I wonder if you are just reading to much into seemingly random events. Sea and see for example. Would the writer back then have inserted this based on something to happen years in advance...or was it just a neat way to show how easy it is to be confused when learning to read. I'd like to think the show creators were so far advanced in their planning but I'm not so sure.....

Even if she is pregnant, you think she's name her son after her biggest enemy of all time (Robert Baratheon) regardless of Robb Stark & Jon's relationship. I'm just baffled you so casually decide to tell you're viewers they will have a son and named him without even a hint that it's not fact??

                                                                              there is a theory that the Waif successfully killed Arya, but then took on her tasks, and is posing as her. That's why a Man saw her and said, "finally, a Girl is no one." Because he knew he was looking at the Waif with Arya's face.
                                                                               If you go back and watch the House of B & W episodes you see there is no waif or Jaqen H'ghar.  The faceless men creatures are only actors of the people that have given up there lives as payment.  This payment is for the insurance to protect their loved ones and is usually given a list of those to assassinate.  Is it coincidence Arya had those things?  If you watch the episodes with that in mind, it makes more sense. It's explaining why and how the faceless men creatures are. It's not a "Arya's path to become Super Assassin in less than a year" story Deven Science8 hours ago @D I'll have to do more research, as I'm not quite understanding what you wrote. I wouldn't re-watch those sections though, as I was bored out of my mind anytime those scenes came on.

                                                                                  I agree with you on this, but I have a strong feeling that the Night King is Rheagar T. Targaryens are believed to have the ability to forsee the future right? Even King Aeries said it himself that Rheagar was the prince that was promised. What if Rheagar didn't die during the Battle of the Trident. What if his body washed ashore somewhere else and then founded by The Children. What if the Prince that was promised was actually the prince who was promised by The Children to become the new Night King? You're probably thinking it cannot be possible Whites were created 8000years ago. Remember, Bran also said in order to destroy the undead army you have to kill the Night King. Will the whites also lost their war once so they lost their king once, so they needed a new king to walk the surface again. Then why the offering of Rheagar to the whites... will the children needed the whites help to fend off humans from killing off their race and cutting down their sacred trees.. and who better to be crowned as the new Night King other then the prince that was promised!


                                                                                  Targaryen sigil not so different than the undead sigil. Both swirling patterns but opposite directions. Why in reverse... will what's the opposite of living... ..the undead. One sigil of dragons cause they control dragons the other sigil of dead body parts because they control the undead. Thus the hidden message is that the NK is an undead Targaryen who rides on an undead dragon, dragons who will never become slaves (deanerys said it herself).
