      I thought only Ned Stark bones made it back to Winterfell... so it won't be him running around as a re-animated zombie

    Ned Stark was beheaded, dismembered, and returned to Catelyn Stark by Tywin Lannister (via Littlefinger) in a box too small for even Tyrion's body. If the Night King plans to resurrect Ned, he'd better swing by IKEA and pick up on of those allen wrenches, because there is going to be some assembly required.

    I don't know if you noticed it or not, but at 1:09 to 1:11 you can see a window opening?! And it doesn't look like its the wind... I have no idea if it's related to anything or not. It just freaked me out. :)

      aside from the fact that Daenerys cremated him, it happened in Essos and the walkers are coming from the north of Westeros.

    that wasnt ghost.. its the head of a horse. But the shoulder frame thingy and the refference to season 1 is very well spotted.
    I think winterfell will be lost when it gets attacked and they have to retreat south . With jon riding Rheagal (who could be injured from an engagement with Viserion and not wanting to risk losing another dragon and flees) with couple of main characters on his back. i cant say for sure the latter happend but Rheagal will be the weakest since Drogon is more fully grown and stronger and Viserion on white walker steroids with the NK riding him.

  • ki-adi-mundi Daily
    ki-adi-mundi Daily 2 months ago

    my theory is that it is going to end at storms end and that is where bran will die. because the castle was fortified with magic from the children of the forest and bran still has the mark on his hand (it will also bring a deeper meaning to ''storms end..

    Time Jump will be needed if they escape the battle of Winterfell and the Night King wins. There is no way the Hero's make it to Kings Landing unless they all fly Dragons, ain't happening. So, where does a retreating human army go when defeated at Winterfell? the other option is the hero's win at Winterfell, which is slim at best. So again where do the living retreat too from the North? How do they make it to Kingslanding without a Time Jump? Do you have ideas on that?

    I do believe the fire around the castle walls is a strategy during the battle for winterfell. I also reckon Jamie is yelling run not bron. Actor who plays bron has said that audience may not like bronn and he is still dedicated to getting that castle. No castle reward for fighting the white walkers

      Based on the trailers and how the mix the characters the dying in Bree's arms, at this point, would only make sense if it's in battle... and given their location it seems very likely this supports the theory.. otherwise Jaime wouldn't have any big part and he seems to be one of the main characters… @celemoon

    Hey! I think I've discovered a plot and would want you to do a video on it. The plot is, what if the winterfell crypt is situated beneath the Godswood where the night king cannot come and everyone goes down there to escape or maybe fight him along with the dragons.

  • Macumazahn
    Macumazahn 2 months ago

    I wouldn't call Torrehn Stark "ancient" - it was barely 300 yrs ago. And it's not like his story is legend; there are very accurate, well-documented accounts of his actions. It was a very pivotal time for Westeros, and thousands witnessed what happened. As for "ruined his reputation" - i think to some, stern, hardass, stubborn. dumb Northerners with more pride than sense, yes he was a coward. But to most Northerners knew he absolutely did the right thing. Kneel, and protect your people, changing very little other than titles and who you pay taxes to, or watch your entire army destroyed or burned, which would leave your entire kingdom open to attack by the largest force ever assembled (i think that was largest force ever assembled in westeros until bobby B's rebellion, or Five King war).
    Oh, but they couldn't get past Moat Cailyn. I beg to differ. Dragons fly right over that. The frog eaters will kill 1000s, but the rest would get thru or hop on ships at Maidenpool, sail right around the neck and into the north, unopposed.
    To side against Aegon at that point would be the pinnacle of foolishness. 80k or 100k in his army, 3 giant dragons with experienced, warrior King or Warrior Queen riders - it's like if the Europeans landed in North America, and fought its native peoples with modern Apache helicopters.

  • Adam Hurst

    If this whole thing really is a metaphor for climate change then they all need to die. It's also the only logical conclusion. Westeros has been ravaged by war for years. First the Targs lose their dragons then have a king go crazy. Roberts war surely had an impact on the people of the country. Then came the WotFK. The Lannisters were literally burning crops and razing the riverlands. Stannis lost a bunch of men as did Rob. Jon lost many men (many directly to the NK) when the freefolk attacked and at Hardhome. Then there were the mountains of dead at the BotB. Then at the worst possible time Dany roasts the majority of what is left of the Lannisters. Oh yeah they also lose a DRAGON! As for the people that are left and can fight they have no food or provisions to last through another Long Night. They've built winter up to be this beast that will last decades. Sansa is already rationing grain in the first few weeks or months of winter. They wouldn't last through an Earth winter much less one that lasts for years and possibly decades. The only path for humanity is to defeat the night king early on and then head to Essos to wait out winter. Oh that just made me think about the NK flying Viserion across the narrow sea and laying waste to Bravos after he hits Kings Landing.

    seems to me that anyone who may be resurrected from the Winterfell crypts would be only a skeleton, they have been dead for a while! if im remembering correctly, lil finger gave Ned's bones back, not a full (minus the head) body.. so i dont think they will bring any of the dead Stark's from the crypts back.. buuuuut, i could be waaay off! :)
