In one of the many heart-stopping, dramatic twists and turns in last night’s insane episode of Game of Thrones, we learned a new rule of the Westeros universe: Kill the white walker, and you kill all the wights it produced. So, it seems to me, if you kill the Night King, the entire army of dead falls, right? So, Jon Snow just has to get to their leader, no problem …
… Except, thanks to some astounding javelin skills, the Night King now owns a goddamn dragon. The degree of difficulty just multiplied exponentially. Twitter had jokes including the U.S. Olympic Team.
It's ok. The Night King had a permit. #GameOfThrones— Eugene Gu, MD (@eugenegu) August 21, 2017
