its still necromancy.

and i kind of thought the more skeletal wights were just older ones... i dont imagine he just walks around looking for graveyards... i think he resurrects them right after they die like at hardhome... and the skeletal ones are just more worn out from years and years.

I don't know... one could argue that by saying he raised all the dead he could find after sleeping for a thousand years...

and then... i realize theres no where this convo can really go lol

The ice magic seems like a corrupted lesser form of magic. That might be why the Lord of Light's wights are more normal and retain the person's soul. The Lord of Light purifies and gives life back to the person to do something good. The Ice magic is cold and cruel and enslaves its wights.

That was what I assumed as well.

Off topic, but has there even been discussion or evidence about the possibility that the Stark ancestors originally lived in the the extreme North in the area that became the Land of Always Winter?

The Starks are descended from the First Men, so they came from across the Narrow Sea and settled in the North. Don't necessarily think House Stark is any more connected to that area more than Mormonts, Glovers, Umbers etc

Finally saw it. wow, so many emotions. It was pretty painful watching all that blood and fire come out of Vis as it was wailing and falling from the sky.

And that death stare between Jon and NK right after, I'm anticipating a 1v1 duel between them near the end. Would probably be the duel to end all duels.

It's gonna be a loooong week and a half wait for the finale boys and girls.

I tend to think that it's quite possible that House Stark, while originating from the First Men and migrating northwards, may very well have originally settled at the area that became the Wall, since they're the ones who built it, and then moved south to build Winterfell atop the hit springs that make it a haven during winter. And I think it's possible that some Starks were on the other side of the Wall.

No evidence at all, just fun specualtion.

Damn, was looking up clips for episode 4 on youtube and stumbled on a crazy clip from this upcoming episode. Do you need to tag spoilers in this thread?

Per GoT wiki :

Kneelers is a derogatory name used by the Free Folk to describe people who live south of the Wall. In Westeros kneeling is an act of submission.

In reddit speak, kneelers more or less abide by the rules for spoilers (tags, blackout, etc). But since this is a spoiler thread, there are no such rules.

Oh I thought you were using some Hype terminology lol. Bonus points for using GoT insults

Thanks

So I accidentally stumbled across what I assume is the key scene of this upcoming episode on youtube (thought these would get taken down from there at least military style) and might as well get spoiled now. Really crazy to see it happen and can't wait to see it all in HD and with the context of the whole episode.

Unfortunately, it's physically impossible to leak season 8 early if their production is really that big that it delays until early 2019 release. But when it does release, they should just go **** it, release entire season at once ala Netflix on HBO Go. I'd skip work the next day to watch 12 hrs of it lol.

If that was possible would it mean more or less money for them?

I actually have no idea how tv shows make their revenue. But I'd imagine HBO Go would probably have a spike in subscribers if they indeed released the entire 6 ep season at once.

I hope there's money in that route for them. This waiting game is even more difficult nowadays when Netflix series have the full season available straightaway. And leaks as you go would obviously be less of an issue then.

Someone mentioned elsewhere something about the Night King that I found both interesting and troubling, in that it now he feels like he's overpowered.

He basically just needs to get those spears on target and Drogon and Rhaegal will be dead. Then again I found it interesting that Drogon benefited by having someone on his back to steer him away from the spear, so perhaps it's inferred that if a dragon has his or her rider, it can make the difference.

Still, all of a sudden two dragons in open battle against the WW doesn't seem like good odds now. Potentially they are the difference maker given that awesome roasting the wights received. Hopefully they have a clever idea on how to level things.

It's kind of like League of Legends. The Dragons have great CC, roasting prolly half an army of wights like nothing. But NK has that skillshot ult. If that thing connects, its gameover.

In that case if Rhaegal is ridden by Jon (which he probably will) then he won't suffer the safe fate as Viserion. That and plot armour should keep Rhaegal and Drogon safe.

I don't think any of the dragons are safe with the Night King and wight Viserion flying around. Granted, I don't think they'll go down as easy as Viserion did but I wouldn't be shocked if they don't survive the series. I could see Drogon going out like a hero.
