It would be really weird to end a multi-novel series with a battle and then have no aftermath.
At one battle "Hardhome?" that is exactly what happened. The Wights that were defeated were *raised* again by the NK.
The aftermath could be a chapter or two talking about what happened after, but not necessarily a big battle for the Throne. After all, even in the TV Series the "Throne" has been somewhat marginalized because of the battle with TNK.
Was it the wights or just the humans that had died during the battle that he resurrected and Jon and co were rowing away from the land??
I thought it was both? but I have not re watched recently so I'm not certain. I'll pay attention on my second viewing (which will happen if I'm satisfied with the ending)
I haven't watched it recently either so now I'm curious if you're right. Anyone know for sure??
I only remember the fallen Wildlings and Night's Watch being raised by the NK. Also, during the battles it sure seemed like the living were "killing" wights with traditional weapons.
I do believe this is the first time that Brienne smiled in the entire series. Fantastic attention to detail.
If I had to choose someone to defend the most important person, at least in the supposition of this episode, Theon wouldn't be the one! He very recently ditched his sister instead of trying to save him, and the Iron Born aren't the best natural swords. He did get training being raised at Winterfell, but wouldn't you want a better swordsman? Brienne? Mormont? Anyone?
I'm not even sure how big a battle it will be. Cersei is depending on the living and the dead beating to crap out of each other, leaving the survivor weak enough for her to take on. But although no doubt the battle between the living and the dead will be a spectacular piece of television, one swing of the sword could (I think will) end it when somebody (Jon?) kills the Night King. Which could leave their army largely intact, and lead to a brutal surprise for Cersei. That battle could start with most of her followers abandoning her when they see who's going to win, and then go downhill for Cersei from there...
Don't forget the little girl. The crypt seems to be where they're sending people who are basically useless, but insist on being useful. And I stress again, isn't it weird that they're blithely sending their defenseless people to hide from the dead in...a crypt? (For photoshopgrl's sake: ) Where lots and lots of DEAD PEOPLE ARE BURIED?
Well, I would assume that most of the dead people buried in the crypt have long decomposed and turned into dust. But I do agree that a couple/a few of them could rise and cause a problem.
Oh yes, the little girl! Who, very tellingly, had an actual name in the closed captioning for the show.
And of course, Podrick can sing.
Thank you for this link. I quite enjoyed the song in the show, and as the end credits. One of the few times i listened throughout the entire credits. Enjoyed learning the GOT history attached to it.
I just watched it last night and the place was full of people standing up...they concentrated on the recently dead for closeups (such as the mother who had sent her 2 kids on the boat) but it sure seemed like everyone got up, including wights.
Well, the little girl was disfigured and reminded the Onion Knight of Stannis' daughter...But I agree that they made too big a deal out of all the women and children going into the crypt for it to be a nothing-burger...
I think that's an awesome point.
In a way, the previous season showed that Cersei and Danny would fight it out for the Iron Throne and Danny "could win", but they now established (on the TV show) that their fight won't happen until after the NK is defeated.
I seriously suspect, that Danny, with 3 Dragons instead of 2 will take the Iron Throne in the books, THEN take on the NK, and then the Danny and Jon "conflict" will be the last one to be resolved.
But I am guessing as to the differences.
Who knows, we might be surprised enough to have the NK play a role in the final resolution.....
I love Podrick.
Many of the weights are walking skeletons. The NK can resurrect then but he cannot regenerate their muscles and tendons, or reattach severed limbs and heads.
I, too, think the battle could (should?) be short. But I seriously doubt it will be.
I have a feeling that the books - if ever finished - will have a much more complex ending than the show.
Who says that dany isn’t fire and Jon Snow isn’t ice?
I feel like knowing the battle against the white walkers being next week SPOILS that the living will win this battle because they can't have 3 more weeks of shows with the dead traveling to Cersai and finishing off the whole realm.
