'Game Of Thrones' Winterfell White Walker Crypt Strategy Is Flawed

'Game Of Thrones' Winterfell White Walker Crypt Strategy Is Flawed

Of course, the big question going into this Sunday's episode is how will the Northern Lords of Winterfell defend their Stark Stronghold from the risky threat that the Night King poses? Of all the things he saw upon touching the Weirwood tree, only two remain unrealised. The Night King is the face of the undead, the one who killed Viserion, murdered the Three-Eyed Raven, etc etc.

The White Walkers have arrived at the gates of Winterfell. It's the middle of the night and the camera zooms out from the castle.


The episode 3 trailer features a terrified Arya (Maisie Williams) being chased by some force out of the frame, which we can assume is not human as the girl is fearless when it comes to her fellow man.

However, if viewers cast their minds back to Hardhome, they will recall the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) has the ability to raise the dead and transform them into Wights who will do their bidding.


It's a sound plan upon first hearing it. Keep those who have less of a chance of surviving the Night King and his hellish lackeys underground to ensure that they'll live to see morning? As Dany, Jon Snow, Tyrion, Sansa, and other key characters gathered in the War Room of Winterfell, Bran revealed that the Night King knew where he was because he left a mark on him and now can track him.

Well HBO will display on the screen at 9 pm in the United States, and For The UK fans, Sky Atlantic will air the episode three at 2 am.


The third episode will all about the battle. Many concluded that he must be riding Viserion the dragon. If this is the case, the people in the crypts will probably be in far greater danger than if the buried Starks reanimated because the Night King's army is likely a whole lot bigger than the number of those buried underneath Wintefell (many of whom are probably nothing but dust by now). He will ride along with his dragon to King's Landing and destroy everyone there. One of the new photos from the upcoming episode shows her outside on the ramparts with Arya (Maisie Williams). Digging into Season 8 Episode 2, there's also a wonderful behind-the-scenes look at the shooting of the fireplace scene and subsequent knighting of Brienne of Tarth, with insight from the actors involved and director David Nutter.
