Last Sunday's episode of HBO's Game of Thrones ended with an extended scene in White Walker territory, something that had only been teased up to this point in the series. The show then introduced viewers to someone that could quite possibly be the leader of the White Walkers and we stood witness as he turned Craster's last born son into one of his own. Well, after the episode HBO released the official synopsis in it's Game of Thrones Viewer's Guide for "Oathkeeper" and with it came a very interesting bit of information regarding the identity of the aforementioned White Walker leader. Read it below:

Who is the Night's King? Well, read the description of him below, provided by A Wiki of Fire and Ice.

According to legend, the Night's King lived during the Age of Heroes, not long after the Wall was complete. He was a fearless warrior, who was named the thirteenth Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. Later he fell in love with a woman "with skin as white as the moon and eyes like blue stars", he chased her and loved her though "her skin was cold as ice", and when he gave his seed to her he gave his soul as well. (Her description matches that of the Others.)

He brought her back to the Nightfort and after the unholy union, he declared himself king and her his queen, and ruled the Nightfort as his own castle for thirteen years. During the dark years of his reign, horrific atrocities were committed, of which tales are still told in the North. It was not until his own brother, the King in the North, and Joramun, the King-Beyond-the-Wall, joined forces that the Night's King was brought down and the Night's Watch freed. After his fall, when it was discovered that he had been sacrificing to the Others (possibly in similar way to Craster), all records of him were destroyed and his very name was forbidden. It is likely this led the lords of the North to forbid the Night's Watch to construct walls at their keeps, ensuring the keeps would always be accessible from the south.

This synopsis has now been edited to read "a Walker" in place of "Night's King." Now, we must wonder, was this just a simple typo on HBO's part or did they accidentally reveal something that even readers of George R.R. Martin's books have not learned yet? Up until now, the Night's King has not been mentioned on the TV series, but readers of the book series have heard him mentioned in stories told by Bran Stark. It is rumored that the Night's King was a Stark of Winterfell and was also named Bran. However, he has yet to appear in the books. Check out the video below where he is also mentioned:

Now, while this is exciting for all fans, it may not be as exciting for fans of the book series as this might mean that the TV series could potentially begin revealing details that have not been realized in the books yet and with no release dates in sight for The Winds of Winter & A Dream of Spring, it could also potentially mean the television series will conclude before the final two books are released. 

What do you all think of this development? And the possible introduction of the Night's King? Sound off below. 

Also, here's a new Dany still from the last episode: 

In the wake of the Red Wedding, how does the North pick up the pieces and with their greatest enemy seemingly crushed, where does that leave the Lannisters. Daenerys Targaryen now has an army but is she ready to take back her homeland. Does Jon Snow turn south to seek revenge or remember his duty along the Wall?
Game of Thrones returns May 4.

Darth Walker looked bad-ass, was wondering who the [frick] it was...
themidnightking - 4/29/2014, 3:07 PM
I wonder if his tongue ever got stuck like in A Christmas Story

batz11 - 4/29/2014, 3:14 PM
@themidnightking, LMAO!
That's a snatch that bites back...oh, just realized, you may not have been taking the sexual route...but a simple kiss ;)...Think he called her a "frigid bitch" when they fought?
themidnightking - 4/29/2014, 3:15 PM
I did take the sexual route ;)
Scarilian - 4/29/2014, 3:17 PM
"when he gave his seed to her he gave his soul as well"

Eww... White Walker sex :L
blackandyellow - 4/29/2014, 3:28 PM
That woman sounds like a typical Minnesota girl, except without the morbid obesity. :)

WYLEEJAY - 4/29/2014, 3:30 PM
Were her nipples always hard?
batz11 - 4/29/2014, 3:43 PM
Ok, here's your lady, she's working up a sweat for ya...

Colebrax - 4/29/2014, 3:44 PM
I hate that we need to show to fill in the gaps in our knowledge rather than the actual publication of "The Winds of Winter". I love the show but the books should always be the first place to unveil crucial elements of the plot.
mgeoff88 - 4/29/2014, 3:50 PM
Frost Giant down! :P

@batz I don't think Gusto would appreciate you posting up a pic of his rotund girlfriend. ;P
HavocPrime - 4/29/2014, 3:51 PM
The producers have stated that they do know the ending to Game of Thrones as GRR has told them it.

So it could be a possible slip tbh...
blackandyellow - 4/29/2014, 3:53 PM
Damn, she's got some sexy cankles.
Pasto - 4/29/2014, 4:13 PM
batz11 - 4/29/2014, 4:13 PM
Figured I better delete the other one, don't wanna end up B&Y'd (banned ;)
JonStarkgaryen - 4/29/2014, 4:15 PM
Don’t worry everybody. My Aunt Dany and I will take care of the Night’s king!
ScorpioRisin - 4/29/2014, 4:19 PM
There were 13 blurred WW in the shot. The first 13 Lord Commander's anyone?
xinstituto - 4/29/2014, 4:19 PM
there is no spoiler, everyone knows there is a Night's King.
Spock0Clock - 4/29/2014, 4:26 PM
I love this show. All of us book-readers sit and watch arrogantly. "Oh, I know he's gonna die" and "I know who the killer was" and all that, but then they throw this scene at us and most of us have no [frick]ing clue who that was.
smell - 4/29/2014, 4:30 PM
Just give me more trolls in this. Or polar bears, MoS best scene was the polar bear ever so slightly jumping awesome.
Ryguy88 - 4/29/2014, 4:32 PM
Well its about time the 'Book Readers' had something spoiled for them for a change. How does it feel? Not so good, does it!
johan02 - 4/29/2014, 4:40 PM
HOLY SHEEPS@*T!!!!! The Nghts King??!!!! OMG that is SO epic.
On the idea of the show going beyond the books, George R R Martin has already said the show would eventually have to separate from the books. And seeing how Winds is SUPPOSED TO drop this year and(according to Martin) a good portion of Dream is already written and he says he has had the end already written so either way the show WON'T effect the books. Nor will the path the show takes(in the areas it diverts from the books)have anything to do with what the books are saying. If for no other reason than, in cases like Bran, the events that lead to the end result are different so the end result would be different.
I knew season 4 would be when they moved away from the books, season 1 was like 99% from the book 2 was like 50/50 and 3 was 75/25 so 4 was obviously gonna go off the map.
I like it, yeah its different but that just means no spoilers for the first time. Plus George R R Martin is an executive producer advisor and occasional writer as long as hes involved Im in. The minuet hes out the show is done.

I would never have guessed it was the Night King thanks HBO. Last episode was pretty awesome as someone who has read the books !

Umm... isn't that a bad thing? If you know the books you should be able to recognise or guess the characters mentioned. If you have 'No fricking clue who that was' then surely that's showing that the TV series is inept at portraying characters in a recognisable manor.
ScorpioRisin - 4/29/2014, 5:53 PM
Nope. In this case nobody had any idea about it because the White Walkers are barely mentioned in the books. We know next to nothing about them. So some White Walkers scenes from the series never happened in the books.
NoPhucksGiven - 4/29/2014, 6:27 PM
ComicFan523 - 4/29/2014, 8:11 PM
I really need to start reading the books. If Martin has the rest of the story mapped out it might be plausible that he's told the producers what's going to happen. It would kind of make sense, from what I've heard he takes about five years to write one novel, the show can't wait that long while he finishes.
