I don't get the whole "click-bait" article (not specifically that one above, but I've seen many others) that say Bran is the Night King.

Don't we already know that the Night King is some old Stark that was a disgraced Lord Commander?

While I guessed in the past that Bran would Warg a dragon, I guess the answer now is that he is going to Warg an undead dragon out from under the Night King.  He probably dies in the process or something, but I can't really see it going any other way.  Otherwise, what the hell is the point of Bran's "powers" besides him "legitimizing" John and substantiating the Targaryen incest rule?
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasûrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

Same. Alas, that won't happen, books or show.

That's from the books, though, no?

Good call.

I think so?  I mean, I can't remember shit from the book anymore though.  I doubt they changed that, though it's possible.

Book Night's King have been dead for many, many years. And was an entirely different thing than the show one.

Yes, but I honestly don't know if the tv bullshit won't affect Martin at all. Maybe the crappy solutions of HBO seem great ideas for him.

The Night King/Bran theories are intriguing. I just found that it was best the the formation of walkers entering through the wall was the shape of a direwolve. Easter Egg, probably. But, I agree, the books will be different in alot of respects. And, I think that's a good thing.

I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me,

On, and in the books I thinknthats there a difference between the Night King and The Night's King, the 113 Lord Commander that married a white-walker.

Yeah, I'm rooting for the White Walkers - I have a soft spot for the undead.
May your death be soon, slow and painful
