    Why didn’t the Night King know that one shot with a knife to him would destroy his whole army? Don’t you protect an asset that, if destroyed, ends the entire enterprise?

    I think the show did well demonstrating the arrogance of the Night King. He was extremely sure that there’s no way they would lose.

    Pickett’s Charge was a disaster, much like the charge of the Dothraki. However, as bad as it was – and it was bad – casualties were “only” about 50%. I expect many more Dothraki survived than were shown to…

    The hilarious part is when James is convinced that Tormund didn’t survive. Or when they sounded unsure that Lyanna Mormont was the person that killed the wight giant. The episode wasn’t that dark.

    No surprise that James and Toby continue to confuse White Walkers and wights. Wights are mindless so of course they mindlessly wander in the library. Also, it’s been established for a long time the kind of weather that comes with the White Walkers. The priests and priestesses of the Lord of Light can do some magic tricks and sleights of hand. But I think it’s been well established by now that any true powers come from their prayers being answered by the Lord of Light.

    I’m still amazed by Miguel Sapochnik’s directing abilities. Between this, Hardhome, and Battle of the Bastards, I can only imagine what this guy can do with a giant movie budget.

    You were a lot more impressed than I was.

    Beric Donderion used a flaming sword, first seen against The Hound. So we should have known the Lord of Light empowers the flaming sword trick.

    I mean I can still appreciate the direction of the episode and what what was shown without being impressed by character decisions. I rewatched it yesterday in a dark room, when 8 billion people weren’t streaming at the same time, and it looked fine. The compression issue wasn’t such a big problem.

    The only really large complaint I had was the way Arya killed the Night King. I would have preferred the following scenerio:

     

    The Night King is about to pull out his sword and kill Bran Stark. Suddenly….

    One of the wights moves forward and stabs the Night King in the back with the valyrian steel knife. The Night King, White Walkers, and all the wights imploded except for this one wight.

    The wight this walks forward towards Bran with the knife pointed at him. The face is then pulled off and revealed to be Arya just like the faceless men.

     

    That would have been an epic way to end the battle!!

    It also would have made at least a little sense. As it is, they left us wondering whether she acquired the power to apparate in the House of Black and White.
