What Does The Night King Want? 'Game of Thrones' Theory Explained

It took its time and took care with its words, giving us character moments and elegant scenes rather than a mere list of plot points.

The big battle is coming, and the survival of all of them is put into jeopardy. Sansa immediately jumps to the defense of Brienne and Tyrion, insisting that she trusts both of them-and Jaime by association.

Warning: major spoilers for season 8, episode 2 of "Game of Thrones" - "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms" - will follow.

The Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 3 preview, or as HBO calls it, "A quick look at Sn 8 / Ep 3 of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones". Just about all the main characters get a chance to weigh in and let us know how they feel about his arrival.

Now, stars Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington - who play Daenerys and Jon, respectively - are having a little fun with their family tree.

The theory isn't completely insane - in the trailer for next week's episode, we see the Army Of The Dead approaching Winterfell, but we don't see the Night King... except for one scene where he's riding Dead Viserion.

As Nymeria confronts an adult Arya outside Winterfell, Arya recognizes her former pet and begs her to come back to Winterfell with her. Going into Season 8, the show's production team knew a large amount of time would be spent at Winterfell with a very large number of characters.
