'Game Of Thrones' Winterfell White Walker Crypt Strategy Is Flawed

Jaime Lannister from arrogant brute to more or less benign brute

This is because at the end of the second episode of the final season, it is shown that the Night King is missing from the battleground where he should have been gearing up for battle against Jon Snow and his squad in Winterfell. But before we dive in, we should warn you that spoilers from the first two episodes of season 8 will follow below. We know that the Night King is soaring through the air on Viserion somewhere, but what if his plan doesn't include making an appearance at the battle at all?

But perhaps the riskiest part of the coming war is the group's strategy for defeating the Night King. And why's that? Because the Night King can't be killed by fire.

Suffice to say, fans are incredibly anxious that the place where danger shouldn't reach will be a house of horrors on the forthcoming episode. All the women and children are in the crypts, because of how safe they are. They don't have a way of killing the Night King, and even if they did, they may not know that the trick to stopping the army of the dead is to kill its general.

How can Jon defeat the Night King?

Christian's full of confidence on his left and right foot and we're thankful it capped off a good weekend in terms of results. I was warmed up to shoot and very pleased it went in. "Brighton were a really courageous opponent".

It's very rare that anything in Game of Thrones is coincidental. Maybe a miracle will happen and it'll be revealed that the person who built both the Winterfell castle and the Wall, Brandon "the Builder" Stark, reinforced the crypt with some kind of magic that deflects the Night King's powers.

But a fan theory reported by Buzzfeed on Tuesday suggests that the ominous Night King won't actually be at the fight, which takes place in the third episode, as he has other plans in mind. On the plus side, they have tons of dragonglass mined from beneath Dragonstone, a scattering of Valyrian steel swords, and of course, Dany's two dragons.
