Game of Thrones Season 7 ended with the wall finally crumbling down, and the Night King entering Westeros to begin the Great War with humanity. As all the forces assemble to take down the Night King, and his Army of the Dead, this is building up to be the greatest battle that anyone has ever seen.
Westeros is at the brink of destruction, and their chances of victory are very low. However, they are going to be fighting the dead with all they’ve got.
We saw how Cersei Lannister tricked Dany and Jon into believing that she’d send her troops North, and fight the army of the Dead. But, she clearly told Jaime that she’s not going to any such thing, and plans on Conquering while they’re away.
This disgusted Jaime beyond compare, and he finally left to fight the dead on his own. Jaime is finally free from Cersei’s grasp, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was recently in an interview with Esquire where he talked about Jaime, and in the process, he gave away a major spoiler for the upcoming season.
When asked about Jaime Lannister’s future in the series, he said “He has to get to some sort of commander, whether it be Jon Snow or someone else in charge.”
But that’s not the interesting part. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was also asked about the arrival of the White Walkers and the fight against the Dead. Here’s what he had to say:
“You know some of the main characters are going to get turned. There are going to be some blue-eyed main characters running around. And, god, I hope it’s not me. That’s three hours of makeup in the morning.”
So, It is confirmed that the Night King will turn a few of the main characters into Wights. It was expected, to be honest, but not of the main characters. Many had forgotten about the fact that the Night King is going to turn more people.
Yes, he does have a 100,000 dead men, but that is not going to stop him from raising the dead that fall in the battle against his army. Kit Harington recently described the 8th Season as a “bloodbath”, and that would obviously include some of the main characters’ deaths as well. So, a lot of them are going to get turned into Wights.
The Night King is probably approaching the Last Hearth and Karhold. If these places fall before Jon and his army can engage them in battle, it is going to be even more difficult for them. An even bigger problem is the fact that the people aren’t burnt in Westeros. They’re just burried.
So, the Night King can just raise every dead person there is in Westeros, and use it in his army. Some even go as far as to say that Jon Snow will die again, and become a Wight, but that’s never going to happen, really.
Jon may not turn, but a lot of others might. Season 8 is going to be huge, and I’m sure you all are just as excited as I am.
Theon Greyjoy’s Shocking Fate In Game of Thrones Season 8!
Theon Greyjoy has had his ups and downs in his journey. He once pledged his sword to Robb Stark during the Rebellion, and then turned his back on him when Balon Greyjoy refused to lend him his Fleet.
Since then, he’s done a lot of terrible stuff, which includes the destruction of Winterfell, and the indirectly, the coming of the Boltons.
Theon then had a miserable time as a prisoner, and Ramsey was horrible to him. However, he survived all that, and back in Season 5, he helped Sansa escape from Winterfell as well. You could see that he was on a journey for redemption.
He went to the Iron Islands after that, and as Euron came, he had to run from there as well. Their only option was to go to Dany for help and even though she agreed, they were ambushed on their way to Sunspear, and Yara was captured by Euron Greyjoy.
The finale of Season 7 was big for Theon. He has always been conflicted about whether he was a Stark, or a Greyjoy.
