Spoilers will join the battle.
And so, we’re here, swords at the ready, bows drawn, torches lighted up. And then the Winter finally comes for us all. It’s bloody, it’s fearsome and regular strategies will not work. We’re going to be buried in corpses by morning. And yet, Winterfell is where we will make our last stand against the undead armies of the Night King. It was overall an incredibly tense episode that hooked into you and wouldn’t let go.
Highs, Lows and is this really the time to worg, Bran?
- The war of ice and fire finally comes to a long, gruelling battle. It seems the goal, the actual win was always Bran. Everyone else was in the way.
- The charge of the undead is crazy, it’s a wild rampage that shakes everyone to the core. Even the mighty Unsullied find themselves unable to stop it.
- Ser Jorah Mormont takes a thousand hits and keeps on going to protect his queen. He dies only once Daenerys is safe.
- Lady Lyanna gets to kill an undead giant. She dies in the process. The scary part which we didn’t see, or perhaps I missed altogether, is that she gets raised by the Night King. So does Dolorous Edd.
- Jon and Daenerys are only as effective as their dragons were. Jon gets to kill some undead directly, but never gets to duel the Night King.
- Were Tyrion and Sansa contemplating suicide with that dagger? That freaked me out.
- Theon Greyjoy dies bravely in battle. You are good man, Theon.
- The best player of the game goes to Arya Stark. She goes past everyone to catch the Night King and gets caught in the process, fortunately she has one last Valyrian blade. Rest in pieces, Night King.
- And finally, it’s the end of the road for Melisandre. Coming back to give the forces an edge and urge Arya into the fray was her last spell. The night was indeed full of terrors.
That will do for now.
