And another year-long wait begins! Game of Thrones S07E07 was one of the most satisfying yet mysterious episodes HBO has ever given us. Although, it is quite evident that GOT season 7 was kinda rushed but all is well that ends well, and the season 7 finale has proved it. Let us take a look at some crucial moments.
Just when we thought that Littlefinger was manipulating poor Sansa and turning her against her own sister we got to see that instead, the Stark girls were playing him all along. Ironically, Arya ended his life with his own catspaw dagger. This was the perfect and most satisfying death on Game Of Thrones since the dagger that was once meant to kill Bran was put to good use.
Well, this one is definitely not a surprise. Cersei turned her back on Dany and lost her beloved brother/lover in the process. Now she has no one left except her baby. Let’s see how long that lasts.
“You know what’s coming for you!” Yes, one of the most awaited moments Cleganebowl is officially confirmed.
Jon And Dany Take It To The Next Level
The way in which Jon and Dany’s intimacy was portrayed was a little creepy since they did the deed while Bran and Samwell were talking about Jon’s true parentage implying that he is actually her nephew. Yes, we heard what Lyanna Stark whispered to her brother Ned. Jon is officially confirmed as Aegon Targaryen- the rightful heir to the Throne.

The Wall Came Tumbling Down
The Wall is finally come crashing down as the Night King’s dragon melted it with the blue flame. The army of the dead is marching south at last. Nice plot to kill and turn a dragon and then use its blue fire to destroy it.
What Do The White Walkers Want?
The one and only thing we know about White Walkers is that they are hell-bent on adding more bodies to their army by killing the living and raising the dead. While the White Walkers and their army have been the major plot on GOT since the show began, we still haven’t gotten any explanation as to why he is waging a war against the living. What Do The White Walkers Want? Although, his reason for killing every living being in his path could be the same as of Cersei’s- Maybe he just wants to possess as much power as he possibly can.
In season six, we that the children of the forest created the night king that is the first White Walker. They wanted to use their creation to protect themselves against the First Men who slaughtered their people and destroyed their trees. But things took an ugly turn, and the Night King stopped protecting the children of the forest and went against them and of course, men in general.
Let us take a look at what Daniel Weiss said:
“I don’t think of the Night King as a villain as much as, Death. He is not like Joffrey or Ramsey. He’s not really human anymore. To me, evil comes when you have a choice between that and good, and you choose the wrong way. The Night King doesn’t have a choice; he was created that way, and that’s what he is. In some ways, he’s just death, coming for everyone in the story, coming for all of us. In some ways, it’s appropriate he doesn’t speak. What’s death going to say? Anything would diminish him. He’s just a force of destruction. I don’t think we’ve ever been tempted to write dialogue for the Night King. Anything he said would be anticlimactic.”
Maybe this is the answer to the question What Do The White Walkers Want? Since the night king was created to protect the children by killing men, he is actually serving the purpose in his own evil way. Perhaps it’s not his fault. And maybe he is programmed that way- See a living being, kill a living being! He doesn’t have a choice. It is more like a reflex action.
Although, the dark magic that created the Night King and White Walkers went wrong and eventually, they turned against everyone, even the children of the forest who created them. We can call it a side effect, can’t we?
Anyway, the best way to solve this mystery of What Do The White Walkers Want is to let the Night King speak (not literally). Perhaps GOT can give us some flashbacks, so we can hate him properly.
