You Probably Missed This Detail In "Game Of Thrones" This Week, But It's Chilling

Three spears, three dragons.

As you probably already know, this week's episode of Game of Thrones was a frickin' emotional roller coaster.


And the worst part by far was watching THIS PRICK take down Viserion with an ice javelin.


The Night King has a hell of an arm, I'll give him that.

But that raises the question: How did the White Walkers even know to bring that spear?


Well, Thrones fans think they have it figured out. You see, the whole thing β€” from the moment Jon and co. captured that wight β€” was a deliberate trap set by the Night King.


The proof seems to lie in this shot of the White Walkers, who packed EXACTLY ENOUGH spears to throw at all three dragons.

THREE SPEARS, THREE DRAGONS. Redditor Sizzor19 noticed the detail, and it's pretty pun intended.

So, what if the Night King β€” thanks to either his own powers of Greensight or his connection to Bran β€” knew the gang would be coming north of the Wall, and took the opportunity to capture a dragon?


Wasn't it a bit odd that there was a small party of wights out on their own, close enough to the army that the rest of the White Walkers could catch up and trap Jon and his gang? And isn't it interesting that the wights didn't try to attack until just before Dany arrived? You'd think they would at least try to cross a few at a time.



Why drag those across the frozen tundra unless you're planning to use them to pull a dragon out of a lake?

Of course, if this was a trap, that means terrible things for the future, because it means that the Night King knows some shit.


We've seen the Night King interrupting Bran's visions, and he even marked Bran's arm. Could it be that the Night King has the same abilities that Bran does, or is otherwise able to see and know what Bran sees and knows?

In any case, this is not helping my anxiety about the upcoming season finale.
