So there are 2 theories for who the NK actually is?
Either one is he is Bram or the other I heard is the NK is the original Jon Snow of Winterfall. Being the son of Bael the Bard and a Stark girl.
Meaning the NK was a commander of the Night’s Watch like Jon and was betrayed like Jon because he fell in love with a wilding.
The thinking being the origins of House of Stark are from a wilding.
Thus, House Stark is really from a Wilding origin and they rewrote the history books and that is what Bran’s mission has been about.

Season 8 can’t come fast enough but the NK stuff is the most interesting to me.

Problem is the show hasn’t really delved into much of the backstory enough... have a feeling it’ll be either unexplained or a really dumb show explanation

With longer episodes and superior writing, they could do it in bite-sized pieces over a few episodes giving viewers a chance to process and put pieces together. I share the concern that it will be muddy, but I have faith in the writers of this show to not let that happen. It will (likely) be central to how the story plays out and the resolution of the series, so it HAS to be done well or risk becoming like Lost (or other multiple series with disappointing, "What" endings).
Can't wait for Season 8!!!

...or a new series at some point down the road delving into the back story.

Given Bran can travel through space and time I think it could be both theories and be right. I get the sense that Bran has been all people.

Any predictions for season 8?
I have no idea how the NK will eventually being killed but I think one of Jon Snow or Daenerys will be killed in the battle.
I think Winterfell will fall.
I think Jamie will leave Cersei and will ride to Winterfell and admit to what he did to Bran and help fight there.
He will die in this battle.
I think it is going to end up the Mountain is already dead and is in fact a Whitewalker who can be controlled by the NK. He will be killed by his brother the Hound
I think Cersei will die giving birth to a "dwarf" a la her mother.
I think Bran and Sam will be the MVPs of the battle the NK is defeated in. Bran will die.
Red Woman will be killed trying to sacrafice to Sam Jr. by Sam.
All the dragons will die.
Arya and Sansa will survive.
