OK, so if you watched Season 8, Episode 2 of Game of Thrones last night, you know that everyone at Winterfell is gearing up for a battle with the White Walkers and their army of wights. Preparations are being made, hookups are happening, the works.
But there's one detail about the battle prep that keeps coming up: the fact that women and children are going to be staying in the Winterfell crypts, where it's "safe."
Jon says it:
Gilly says it:
And even Sam says it:
And because Game of Thrones has already given us seven seasons' worth of major trust issues...this repeated detail set off a LOT of people's spidey senses:
Because ICYMI, a crypt is a place where you literally store dead bodies over, like...centuries...
And we're already dealing with a bit of a fighting-dead-people situation...
Which includes a Night King who we've SEEN turn dead people into more wights!!!!
Sooooooooo it looks like we're in for some serious zombie trouble in the next episode...
And if you still aren't convinced that some shenanz are about to go down in the crypt, Iet me just leave this SUPER CASUAL line that Danaerys says in the Episode 3 preview right here.
In closing: Winterfell, and I can't emphasize this enough, is screwed.
The upcoming battle is with the White Walkers and their army of wights. A previous version of this stated that everyone would just be fighting the White Walkers without making a distinction between them (the ones actually created by the Children of the Forest, who ride horses and ~control~ the wights) and wights (basic reanimated corpses brought to life). Scary but important difference!
