Weirwood trees have been spotted since "Game Of Thrones" began. But, what are they actually and what are their powers? Here ' s the full explanation.

Is There a Reason Bran Lures the Night King to the Weirwood Tree? Here's What We Know© HBO Is There a Reason Bran Lures the Night King to the Weirwood Tree? Here's What We Know

As the Battle of Winterfell raged on Game of Thrones, a quieter battle was taking place inside the walls of the castle. Theon Greyjoy and a handful of soldiers stood in the godswood with Bran Stark, waiting for the Night King's inevitable arrival and hoping to be able to defend Bran. As they wait, it appears that they're also guarding the weirwood tree, the mystical tree imbued with ancient magic. So were the soldiers actually concerned with protecting the magical tree, or was it just coincidence that they were there?

Although the weirwood tree is very powerful, the soldiers are ultimately there to protect Bran. Theon personally swears to defend Bran, even if it means laying down his life, and he's the one in charge of the squad in the godswood. At the crux of the plan is using Bran as bait to lure the Night King to Winterfell, since Bran has been "marked" by the Night King and therefore can be found no matter where he goes. As Bran explains, he (as the Three-Eyed Raven) is the Night King's number one enemy because he holds all the knowledge and stories of the Seven Kingdoms; wiping him out would take all that history and memory away forever. It's not clear if his prophetic visions ever foresaw that the Night King would be killed in the godswood, but it's possible: Bran did give Aryathe Valyrian steel dagger she used to kill the Night King.

Is Bran Stark Still "Alive" on Game of Thrones? The Answer Is Complicated

Is Bran Stark Still With all the twisty plots and magic on Game of Thrones, the one thing that's usually pretty straightforward is death (and there's a lot of it). Either you're still alive and fighting, or you're dead, or you've been turned into a White Walker. There's one character, though, who seems to not quite fall into any of these categories. Bran Stark is clearly still alive, but he's transformed into a being called the Three-Eyed Raven, who seems to have swallowed up the Stark boy as he was.

Bran ’ s plan to lure the Night King into a weirwood forest might actually work. But Bran seems pretty confident that the Night King is so hellbent on getting to him that he’ll be more careless To be fair to the Night King , there are good arguments for why we maybe shouldn’t trust Bran regarding

It is Bran ’ s hope that the Night King will leave himself vulnerable by running straight towards the youngster. And, as fans will remember, when one of Bran may then use his power in tandem with the Weirwood tree to make the undead rise up and fight against the Night King and, aid his siblings in

The choice of location isn't entirely coincidental, though. In one of Bran's Three-Eyed Raven flashbacks, he watches the Night King's origin story: an ordinary man was captured by the Children of the Forest, bound to a weirwood tree, and stabbed through the heart with a piece of dragonglass. The Night King, as an entity, was thus born in front of a weirwood tree; it seems fitting that he dies in front of one, too.
