    You certainly got it. It was Arya who got the night king. and are you xure you guys you didn't knew beforehand? 3rd episode was really full of suspense, amazing.

    you cant kill the night king with dragon glass or val steel you have to remove the glass dagger from his heart ,,, any of you watch GOT??? lol

      @NaturallyWit common sense, he was not made by death he was made by dragon glass its self and had a dragon glass dagger pushed threw his heart so its apart of him , so how can it kill him ;)

    How comes no one is wondering why Jon Snow hair isn't white like ALL Targeryens?

    I don't think the dragon glass is detachable, the weapon looks like a combat lance and in order to attach the dragon glass to the stick it requires a tang to fit inside the shaft to secure it. IMHO

    Is anyone else worried about Drogon & Rhaegal? Even if Ghost shows up, he would not have a chance on the ground because there are so many zombies.

    It is a spear it was made for range because as you know daggers have limited range and needle would not be very effective against white walkers.

    Aha! The Night King's spiral is the symbol of everything going down the drain!

    Possibility - twirling staff, splits in half into Kali/Escrima sticks with dragon glass tips.

    I don't know you but youtube knows what I like.
    Its made to kill the night king but will probably drop mountain.
    Mountain lost to Oberan 😒 kind of.
    Ep 1 season 1 Arya bullseye seemed like foreshadowing.

    Since Jon is non-dead, do you think he will be able to reclaim the ice dragon?

    Just because it looks small on the parchment doesn't mean it's going to be a small weapon. Maybe it's going to be big to use against the now night dragon of the night king.

    Remember what we learned when Jon, the Hound, and the gang were beyond the wall: if you kill a white walker, the creatures he's re-animated also die. So, no need to kill Viscerion directly. Kill the Night King and the dragon and probably many others he animated will die.

  • Ally Jay

    Maybe Bran sent Arya to request a weapon be made to kill the Blue Dragon... It is a dragonglass spear for a ballista...

  • iel dubidooo
    iel dubidooo 4 months ago

    IMO why would you attached a reserved weapon/dagger to a throwing spear example if you throw the spear in a long distance? then what you will run and get it? if Arya has a thing for a dragon to ride it maybe Bran tell Arya that a single dragon glass can remove the Nights king's Controlled Wright, and maybe its the purpose of detachable dragon glass.
