Knowing this for a fact, fans of the book series are keen in overseeing even the slightest of details in the previous books. This creates a theory that might unfold in Winds of Winter.

According to Reddit‘s Winds of Winter theory, Bran has encountered a character having the same magical attributes in A Storm of Swords. In the theory, the alleged greenseer could be one who has been merged with a white weirwood tree whom signs of humanity have been long gone where only a hint of consciousness is left.
The Reddit user added that it happens when Sam ushered the young Stark into the Black Gate at the Nightfort. Martin has vividly described the scene with an intense description on how Bran and his pack were allowed to pass through.
The clue which may lead to Winds of Winter storyline appears after the opening of the Black Gate. The fan believes that it was the said weirwood that opened the Black Gate entrance and allowed Bran and his companions to pass through.
According to the theory, the said mystical character could be another greenseer or, if not, another magical creature that possesses the same magical abilities. Also, this presumed greenseer could have lived for about 8000 years already which could have taken part in building the wall.
Moreover, this theory can also be confirmed when Winds of Winter arrives which fans hope to contain further information about the greenseers, children of the forest and other magical creatures dwelling in the seven kingdom.
Meanwhile, Martin is reportedly eyeing a late 2017 release date for Winds of Winter.
