Use this as an open thread for Game of Thrones: The Long Night (Season 8, Episode 3), but watch out, spoilers abound.

In this episode:

  • It’s a battle royale in the snow where lighted swords won’t do you much good!
  • Lyanna Mormont has a David vs. Goliath moment, but for reals.
  • The formula of people hiding out in a crypt full of dead people + zombie king who can resurrect people from the dead turned out as badly as everyone expected
  • Arya MF Stark!

Questions:

Eh, what exactly was the plan? Winterfell’s defense seemed like it was coached by Bob Sutton.

Did more of your favorite characters die in an existential apocalyptic battle or at a wedding?

Just how bad is The Night King’s Secret Service?

Bigger clutch performance this week - Damian Lillard or Arya Stark?

Was the battle a satisfying end to the White Walker storyline? Was Arya’s ending earned? Will we ever truly know the Night King’s motivations? Are the remaining three episodes a bit anti-climactic now?

  • RIP Jorah Mormont, Eddison Tollett, Beric Dondarrion, Lyanna Mormont, Melisandre, and of course, The Night King, who never even got a line of dialogue!
