Season 8 episode 3 of game of Thrones, "The Long Night", seemed to carefully wrap the battle between the living and the undead. Innumerable anonymous lives were lost on the battlefield. Some of our favorite characters died too. Jorah defending the woman she loved, Lyanna Mormon shooting down a White Walker that was ten times bigger than her, and Melisandre disappeared into nothingness as she purposely headed for the horizon. But, in the end, the defeat of the Night King and his army seemed almost … too easy. An episode? The battle that we have been anticipating since the first episode of the first season, when we set our eyes on the White Walkers, in a single episode?
When entering Season 8, the fans knew that there were two great battles on the way: the battle against the King of the Night and the battle against Cersei. On the basis that the public had anticipated that it would be more difficult, it was widely badumed that the battle against Cersei would take place first.
Some fans think, if the battle against the undead really ends with "The Long Night," that the whole story of White Walker and Night King was a waste of time.
The creators of 'Game of Thrones' will not confirm the end of White Walkers and Night King
Jimmy Kimmel recently interviewed the creators of the program, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Towards the end of the segment, Kimmel asked some questions about the remaining episodes. The first is:
"Are we sure we're done with the White Walkers?"
Weiss looked at Benioff. Benioff, looking down, replied: "Yes, we are not going to answer that."
The interaction between the two was certainly suspicious.
Kimmel continued to ask the writing duo some more questions about the ending and they were equally strict, but they did not have that moment of hesitation they had when asked about the White Walkers.
"Did Bran know that Arya was going to kill the Night King?" Kimmel asked.
"Possibly," Weiss replied.
"Will someone take the iron throne?"
"Possibly," Weiss replied.
Episode 5 will be bigger than "The Long Night"
Emilia Clarke (Danaerys Targaryen) was also recently interviewed Jimmy Kimmel live. He told Kimmel a little about what the public can expect from the remaining episodes. The fifth episode, in particular, is supposed to be juicy.
"Episode five is bigger, episode five is, I mean, four, five and six, they're all crazy, but like … Find the biggest TV you can."
So, anything that happens in the fifth episode will be so big and so brutal that we'll be saying "White Walkers who?" Or, perhaps, just maybe, this great battle will present some familiar white faces with blue eyes.
