    The theory is Bran is both in book and show. Would make the bitter sweet ending if Jon has to kill bran to end the White Walkers

    Where is it mentioned in the books? It must be alluded to, and I missed it...

    So you mean it's not actually in the books, just someone's interpretation of what's in there.

    Nights king and his origins are in the books. Not certain he was a Stark, tho he was a former Lord Commander of the Nights Watch and was defeated by the Starks (and the free folk I believe).

    I've not seen the Bran = Nights king theory so can't comment if that has come from the books.

    I've read the Night King being Bran theory, and think it's pretty stupid.

    Yeah, it's shit. You even see the bloke being "created" and he looks nothing like Bran.

    I've heard that theory in relation to the Mad King - that it was Bloodraven trying to warn him about the threat to the north, but instead drove him mad.

    I'll be disappointed if the books go down the "Big Bad Evil Overlord Final Boss" route the show has with the Night King. It's not like they've even given him any character or depth, he's just Obvious Bad Guy.

    Wouldn't mind if not for the fact that every delay comes with him working on something else.

    :)

    We all know that somewhere between books 4-5 he realised that everyone is in the wrong place and needed to be moved organically into place. Now for the show, they just time skipped people into position. GRRM cant leave 1 step un documented so it is like a million page tome trying to fix the mess he is in.

    As a consequence he has decided to fuck it off and do something different.

    I only just read that there's a new Martin book coming out in November. Fire & Blood, a history of the house Targaryen smeared out over 2 volumes and 800+ pages.

    I... don't really give a shit anymore, to be honest. The ending will be in the TV series, and I don't mind if that's all there is.

    If this isn't a deliberate release strategy to capitalise on the TV series ending, then I have to question why *another* history of Westeros book has been prioritised, ahead of Winds. The first one, I was excited for, but now I'm decidedly ambivalent.
