The Night King Cometh

Title fight on Game of Thrones Sunday night.  The set-ups are over, now it's time to get down to the business of war.  Dragons, Dothraki, Unsullied, Valerian steel, and a bunch of rough and tough Northmen yet the best army Westeros has ever seen might still get wiped out Sunday night.  HBO released several photos of the upcoming episode (posted below).  If you need some action before the weekend, Youtube released Season 2 of Cobra Kai last night.  The series is worth the price of a one month subscription although be warned - you might get used to having no ads on Youtube videos.

Predictions:
Jamie's right hand will be an asset.
Bron will save the day!

Kingfish, fellow GOT nerd here. I am just waiting for the Night King to raise all of the dead Starks in the crypts to attack the humans seeking shelter down there...since all they talked about on S8E2 is how the "safest" place in Winterfell is in the crypts (obviously forgetting the NK has the ability to raise the dead). In one of the teasers Arya is running from something down there frantically and in another teaser the Stark children (absent Bran) are staring at their own stone crypts - foreshadowing much? It would be absolutely gut wrenching to watch her take on her reanimated mother Catelyn (Lady Stoneheart from the books?) who died protecting her children, the writers came up with the shock that was the Red Wedding so not so far-fetched. Also, given how much time they spent on her knighting, I think Brienne is a gonner, most likely Theon, possibly Varys & Jaimie (I think Arya survives so she can steal Jaimie's face and cross Cersei off her list). I have also read where the NK may skip over winterfell with 1/2 of the wight army and head straight to Kings Landing to surprise the Queen. Curious to hear your theories. I really hope Jon, Tyrion, Dany and Sansa survive is all.

Either way, you better prepare thyself for alot of deaths of our favorites this episode - i got my bourbon ready. Winter is finally here, cheers.

I didn't think Catelyn Stark's body made it to the crypt. Didn't the Freys toss her body in the river? Ned's body was just bones, and the other corpses down there wouldn't be much more than dust. Then again, this is a show about magic dragons, ice monsters, and zombies now, so who knows?

KF what is your prediction on who dies Sunday?

Hmmmm good point. Not sure - don't remember seeing visual confirmation of her or Rob's body tossed. Doubtful Ned will be a front-runner for being raised given his body is probably in kings landing alongside his head. Ohhhh what about Littlefinger though? Interesting.

side note, I really hope Podrick Payne with the angelic voice doesn't parish. Ha.

Kingfish said...

Hmmm........ If I have to guess, Sansa gets it. Dany goes Mad Queen and betrays Jon somehow. Brienne? Yup. Eddard and Tormund are probably good bets as well. I think Lannisters survive. We have to lose some major characters here. Has to hurt, if you know what I mean. Jorah will die protecting Dany, D&D haven't gotten bad about fan service lately.

However, those crypts. Are they protected by Bran the Builder's magic or is that broken by the Night King as well? They've mentioned the crypts so much lately that well, figure it out.

Of course, the plan is built on one assumption, that the NK will go for Bran. Hmm..... there is some speculation on ShatonTV that the NK doesn't even show up at Winterfell but attacks somewhere else.

Anonymous said...

Touche' KF. Ahhhh I forgot about Jorah. That one will sting. I think the mad queen theory is high probability as well. Since the wall came down and Bran has been touched by the NK I don't think Bran the Builder's magic extends to the crypts any longer. Wouldn't it be something if NK pulls a fast one and destroys king's landing. I don't believe that lying hooker cersei is pregs anyway - doesn't fit with the prophecy.

Thanks for the insights. We are going to have a hell of alot to talk about Monday morning it seems.

I'm just going to leave this right here said...

My understanding is that by the Night King touching Bran the spells have been broken. But, it is also said the Walkers do not like Iron. And each Stark is buried with an iron sword across there lap (the statues) thus they will not be able to be raised by the Night King. Then there is the theory that the Night King is from the house of Stark. This may explain why Jon Snow and the King had the staring contest earlier and may bode well for Winterfell? He may just want his deal to be put back in place where he gets the 'prince to be' (second Stark baby) every X number of years. Check out the theories on YouTube.

BTW: Note the face in the shadows behind Sansa in the last pic. Jon? Little Finger? WTH!

Holy shit, that looks like Littlefinger! He was always hiding in the shadows around corners when he was alive. Thanks for spotting that easter egg! Dayummmmmmmmm its about to go down.

Sansa, Bran, Theon, Podrick, Breianne, Gilly, Little Sam, Thoros, Lady Mormont, Grey Worm and Ghost fall to the Army of the Dead.
Tyrian will be executed for treason. Jorah will kill Khaleesi with Heartsbane and dies ending the long night. Arya really is No One and will kill Cersi, then marries Gendry. The Hound kills The Mountain. Davos, Jon, Sam, Jamie, Bron, The Hound and Mesandie are left. Jon melts the throne, Mesandie takes care of the baby.

11:48 AM, some have said... well, spoiler alert just in case. Some people may not want to dive into this theory.

@11:12 could be Ramsey in the curtains too? Maybe?

Kingfish said...

If that is Ramsey, then that is No One.

A Man would make Arya run as well as some undead in the crypts is she thought No One was trying to kill her.

No One said...

Indeed! Makes sense though -

my only rebuttal to that is, with Bran being the weird all-seeing (only record of history) 3-eyed creature that he is, how would he have been duped by Baelish pulling such a stunt?

I am loving this thread by the way KF. GOT nerds unite. We should have a watch party of this epic battle...with lots of hard liquor or giant's milk to drown our sorrows.

Kingfish said...

Only problem is, Bran tends to screw up everything he gets his hands on.

Bran can see events that are known but not unknown. Past and present (greenlight in animals ex.) and some glimpses that are more like prophecies. But, I don't think he has full on power to see the future like Dr. Strange. So, now we can morph this into the Endgame thread ... lol!

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
