There's that too, the reason i ask is because the opinions i hear about the last 2 books seems to be all over the place. Some say they're good, other's say they're a complete mess with tons of filler.

There is some filler, for example...Briennes entire storyline is basically wandering around looking for someone she couldn't possibly find. But there's also a lot that there that actually builds towards something.

I know that people have a lot of faith in GRRM but i'm almost certain his ending will be just as divisive as the tv show. It's just kinda unavoidable.

The part of the Wall Jon goes to in season 7 and where the NK destroys the Wall is Eastwatch by the Sea. It's the eastern end of the Wall. The seas there are treacherous which makes it a tricky proposition for boats. Smugglers sometimes take boats passed the Wall and trade with Wildlings but it's not something an average joe does. The White Walkers don't need boats. In the show and books they can freeze water and the wights can even function in liquid water so going around the Wall was an option for them.


About people's faith in the Wall, it seems to be more than just ice. Westeros has legends about the Wall that says it has magic woven into it. It's never been outright confirmed there is magic but the thinking is that the White Walkers couldn't pass the Wall until that magic was broken. Like Blood Raven's cave. Remember the Wights and Walkers couldnt get past a barrier and into the cave until the Night King marked Bran. That's probably how the Wall was warded. That gave some people faith in the Wall. Problem is, in the show at least, Bran passing the Wall after he was marked by the Night King seems to have allowed the Night's King and his army to pass the Wall without being stopped by any magic. Either that or there never was any magic.

Also, by the time of the War of the Five Kings no one, except the Starks and the Night's Watch, believed in White Walkers so Westeros's biggest concern was Wildlings. Wildlings had never been united in living memory and were never likely to attack Westeros in force so the Westerosi people in the South didn't really care if some Wildlings came raiding past the Wall.

Long story short, the South doesnt much care about the Wall. They think it's big and not going anywhere, and magical monsters arent real, and Wildlings are unorganized morons far away.
Thanks for that

It's like when you called out those people saying Fallen Kingdom was a financial disappointment in your recent video. Harsh, but accurate.

Marvolo, didn't Benjen say the Wall had old magic in it that kept him from crossing it?
