One fan has pointed to the fact that the characters repeatedly said the Night King would be coming to the castle, and that this could indicate he will do the opposite by not showing up at all and instead head to King's Landing.
We also got a look at how the living plan on defeating the Night King, too. People are really making the best out of this lose-lose scenario.
It does all that while laying the groundwork for Episode 3, which is, of course, the Battle of Winterfell episode. The Red Priestess was exiled by Jon Snow after Davos Seaworth unearthed her role in the death of Shireen Baratheon. Jon did seem more disturbed last episode by learning that Ned Stark lied to him, but he appears to have now realized that this incest thing also isn't so good.
Tormund Giantsbane, Game of Thrones' bearded ginger Wildling with a heart of gold, might have had the funniest moment in the show's history when he attempted to woo Brienne of Tarth, the subject of his unrequited love, with a truly absurd tall tale of an origin story.
Well, there's going to be a great big battle. When the Wall was constructed, it was imbued with magic that helped keep the White Walkers out, and it's possible that Bran the Builder may have used some of these techniques with the crypts as well. Much like how the Three-Eyed Raven's cave was protected against the Night King until Bran was marked by him, the crypts could be similarly safe as well, and it would only be by Bran going into the crypts that would break this spell and allow the dead access.
We see a sweeping shot of the Unsullied, led by Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson), lined up in flawless formation, ready to defend Winterfell. While the heavy and emotional episode made even the toughest among us cry, others wasted no time in heading straight to Twitter and minting some hilarious jokes about the episode.
Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9/8c on HBO.
