Yes, you read it right. It is possible that while the heard of the human army is awaiting his arrival. Bran cannot see where the Night King is but Night King knows exactly where he is. While the two dragon wait to burn down their zombie brother will Night King take the risk of him and his dragon being burnt to death? Well, it is indeed a handicap match, isn’t it?
Is the Night King willing to take the risk? Here is something better the Night King can do without much risk. I would want to discuss a couple of things that have happened in the past. Also, this isn’t my own theory but someone else has written it. Daenerys Targaryen had a vision of destroyed throne room in King’s Landing which seems as cold as ice. Also, Bran Stark has had a vision of a dragon flying over King’s Landing.
It is possible that Bran Stark’s vision is that of invasion of Night King into the King’s Landing and later when Daenerys Targaryen defeats the Night King she will enter the cold destroyed throne room. It also makes sense if the Night King doesn’t show up at all because he will know that if the humans get him it is over for his army. So, why won’t he just sit the whole thing out and watch humans die and then turn them into more walkers? It seems a very sensible thing to do.
If he destroys King’s Landing, he’ll have more walkers at his disposal to fight against the human beings in Winterfell.
One thing is certain that out of all the characters we have seen in Game of Thrones everyone has behaved foolishly in one instance or the other but the Night King has always made the right moves. We haven’t seen any of his attacks go in vain. He has always been at the top of his plans and executed them to perfection.
So, one thing is clear that he is clearly one of the most intelligent characters and thus he will not play into the hands of humans for sure. He will have some amazing plan up his sleeve to shock the world. Thus, it can be said with utmost certainty that there is a big possibility of him going to King’s Landing in episode 3 of season 8. But this could all turn out to be just a failed theory as well.
So, let us see where the in-demand Night King is, in the upcoming episode of Game of Thrones. Do mention in the comments what are your precious thoughts about this theory.
