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.
