Game of Thrones is not one of them but the greatest fantasy adventure show ever made by mankind. In fact, some say the world is divided into two parts – those who watch GOT and those who don’t. It has become a cultural phenomenon and millions of fans are biting their nails and having restless nights waiting for the last season of this HBO series.
As the Night King marches on with his armies into the seven kingdoms of Westeros, hoping to doom the world to an icy fate, our heroes and villains of Westeros are planning their own twisted schemes to get the upper hand. If Night King is a threat that North will have to prepare for, there is also Cersei Lannister who is still alive and is very much a big adversary of Dany and Jon’s forces.
Well, the war between Dany and Cersei can wait as the threat of the Night King and the White Walkers is more immediate as they have passed the great wall and are moving towards Winterfell. John and Dany are also returning to Winterfell together bringing an army of Dothraki, the leftover unsullied and 2 savage fire-breathing Dragons. Cersei has promised that she will be a part of the Great War between humans and White Walkers, but towards the end, she confirmed that it was a ploy played by her in order to let her competition for the throne.
So, with the Walkers marching towards Winterfell with a White Dragon and Cersei not coming for help, how will Winterfell survive the Walker attack? The question that stands before that is will they? The Night King took Visarion down with Ease, and he has become even stronger with his burning freeze breath, so taking down other dragons will not be much of a problem. So the odds look to be really against Jon and Danny for this Great War.
The advantage that the North will have here is that even though they have less men and women in number against the White Walkers and even without Cersei’s help, they still have great leadership and master tacticians plotting against the Walkers and the Night King as Jon Snow has more experience battling White Walkers, Daenerys inspires loyalty from nearly everyone she meets and the Hand of the Queen, Tyrion Lannister has proven to be an expert tactician. Other than these big three, they have Sansa Stark who has evolved to become a worthy Lady of Winterfell, an assassin the caliber of Arya Stark, Bronn, Brienne of Tarth, Jorah Mormont and the Three-Eyed Raven! Also, Jaime has left for their help and even though he’s got just one hand, he will come really handy with all the support of the Winterfell army. Not to mention Rhaegal and Drogon are still there.
Winterfell is the first defense, and if it goes down, the Walkers will surely march further towards the south towards Westeros. Well fortunately for Winterfell, they will have weapons to take down the Walkers, the Dragon Glass! Also, Valyrian Steel is prominent among Jon, Jaime, Brienne, Sam Tarly, and Arya as all carry Valyrian steel swords or daggers.
But still, this defense could only last for so long against the army of the dead, and even though they have brought in all the advantages they could, they will still lack Cersei and her support. Also, she now possesses the Iron Fleet. Till now we are made to believe that she will be the b*tch queen she is so she can keep the throne to herself, but can she surprise everyone else and be the hero for the first time in her life?
The North may not survive on whatever they have collected till now, but with Cersei’s help, they just might. Jaime has left her side to support the North understanding the threat that looms over the entire human race. So what if seeing Jaime go makes her realise that how wrong she is, and she is even expecting a baby to come, so protect that, what if she takes a step towards saving herself and all the others as well? Honestly, this is the only way the Walkers could be put down, as all the people have to stand together in the Great War.
