Yep, you read that right.
According to a new and trending theory about Game of Thrones episode three, Theon Greyjoy will have to kill Bran Stark in the Weirwood forest (where they’ll be waiting for the Night King to take their bait and come searching for Bran the Three-Eyed Raven). And, yes, that’s your cue to throw your head back and curse the heavens.
But, um, that doesn’t sound like he’d be doing a super good job of protecting him, right? Well, actually, Theon will be helping Bran sacrifice himself for the cause. See, if Bran dies and is reanimated by the Night King’s hand to be a White Walker (with some weird special powers we don’t yet understand, because he’d be a White Walker Three-Eyed Raven combo…), Bran would be unstoppable.
