The Game of Thrones pilot opened in one of the most spectacular ways. Fans got a glimpse of the White Walkers, a magical force that was just a fairy tale for the people of Westeros. After years of "winter is coming," fans have waited patiently for the fight between Westeros and the White Walkers. There are now hints and theories that Game of Thrones Season 7 will see the Wall finally fall.


Marking Bran Broke the Magic

Game of Thrones Season 6 saw the magic around the cave in the north broken after Bran Stark was marked by the Night's King. After years of being safe in the cave, suddenly White Walkers were able to enter. It's safe to theorize that mark will help break the magic in other parts of the north. One of those places is the Wall.

Fans wonder whether Bran will become the Raven and fly south to tell Jon about his lineage. Despite having the whole of history in his head since becoming the Three-Eyed Raven, he doesn't always listen to sense or do as he's told. He may believe that telling Jon that he's actually a Targareyn is more important than keeping the magic of the Wall in place.

There are also theories that the magic of the Wall is already weakened. Old Nan said to Bran that the Wall would stand as long as the Night's Watch remained true. When they killed Jon Snow, they forsook their vows. All it takes now is Bran to cross the Wall to completely destroy the magic.

Euron Greyjoy Could Bring Down The Wall

Game of Thrones Season 6 also hinted that Euron Greyjoy could be the one to bring down the Wall. He made a point of telling Balon Greyjoy that he was the Drowned God and that he was the storm. Jon Snow told the people at Winterfell that the one to bring the war from the north wouldn't wait for the storm to pass. He would bring the storm, because he was the storm.

Euron is also making his way to Oldtown, where Sam Tarly is currently reading up on the history of Westeros and beyond. In his possession is the shard of dragonglass and (supposedly) the Horn of Winter. When sounded, this horn would bring down the Wall. Could Euron get his hands on the Horn of Winter and make sure the Wall falls?

Game of Thrones Season 7 Will See the Start of the End


There are just 13 episodes left of Game of Thrones. Now is the time to set up the storyline for the end, and the end just has to be the war between Westeros and the White Walkers. The very first episode has been leading to this point.

Everyone is finally coming together in Westeros. Cersei is on the Iron Throne, Jon is King of the North, Bran is now the Raven and Daenerys is heading across the Narrow Sea. If any time was perfect for the Wall to fall, this would be it. Yes, there is the war for the Iron Throne to take place, but that is just a minor storyline compared to the bigger threat of the White Walkers.

The Game of Thrones Season 7 trailer certainly makes the theory of the Wall falling look possible. In one clip, it's possible to see what looks like the Wall's reflection in the iris of the Night's King. There appears to be a crack in it, which could indicate that the Wall is going to come down this season. Mashable notes that it's a long stretch, but certainly possible.
