Moreover, now the Great War has become real for Dany. Politics, loyalty and betrayal are all fair game when it comes to gaining, and maintaining control, of the throne. Then he wargs into the First Man that the Children of the Forest turned into a White Walker a very long ago in an attempt to prevent the White Walker's creation.
This is a simplification of a history that took a lot of pages and many episodes of the show to explain, but it's enough to get you up to speed.
Another theory about Bran's identity suggests he may be one of the legendary Brandons he hears about in old folk tales; in particular, "Brandon the Builder", who built both the Wall and Winterfell to shield off the White Walkers.
Or at least we think we have. What exactly are the humans up against? It was evident that she would help him fight the White Walkers and it was expected that she and her dragons would always be unstoppable, but now the situation has changed. Jon's guess as to why that happened made a lot of sense-those wights probably fell because the White Walker who raised them died.
One thing which fans have found particularly freakish is the fact that the White Walkers, despite their name, have barely moved an inch for two seasons. This detail has huge implications for the story.

That's why Game Of Thrones' viewers have spent years theorizing different ways the White Walkers might make it past the Seven Kingdoms' largest line of defense, a debate that just got rocked by a big ole ice javelin.
Does The Night King "Control" His Army By Warging?
Despite having no use of his legs, Bran is incredibly powerful. "That is essentially a paradox unless you are also arguing that Brynden Rivers is also evil/supporting the Night King". Kill one of the icy villains, it transpired, and all of the wights created by that particular Walker will instantly drop dead. It was all a trap, planned well in advance. Facebook has already worked with major studios like NBCUniversal to test interest in masks among users, and more brands and ad agencies are starting to jump into the platform. She and her dragons seemed unstoppable in their heroic rescue of Jon's crew. In that case the Night King could just be their elected leader (or something like that), but not have any unique powers over them.
There's no reason to throw an ice spear you know is going to miss, for instance. Richard Brake, 52, plays the evil king on the show, although you wouldn't know it if you passed him on the street. Why did anything happen if someone knew it was going to fail before it happened?
Given the slowly building tension between Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow, whose house sigils are a dragon and a wolf respectively, and the tender moment they shared in last week's episode in which Jon finally agreed to bend the knee, the episode title could be alluding to the relationship many fans have been rooting for.
The question is whether someone who can see into the future would ever allow himself to be put in that position.
