Where is the Night King? We have an idea... Where is the Night King? We have an idea...

22 Apr , 2019

I will AGAIN warn that if you haven’t watched Game of Thrones season 8 yet, TURN BACK. NOW.

The second episode of Game of Thrones season 8 rolled out last night and while it seemed like a lot didn’t happen, a lot did. We've come a long way from Game of Thrones season 1, heck even from the Game of Thrones Books! Brienne was knighted, Jaime gave his service to her, Theon returned to defend Winterfell and Bran, Jon revealed his heritage to Dany, JEEZ!

Snag some Game of Thrones Funkos!

This episode was chalk full of the peak arc for many characters… could this be a hint at their fate later in the series? We could be looking at some deaths coming up in the next episode! But there’s one big question looming after the conclusion of last night’s episode:

Where is the Night King?! 

Well, there a few possibilities of where he could’ve gone, but we’re pretty hot on the idea that the Night King is currently headed to King’s Landing and boy do we have some good reasons why:

He wants to destroy

This episode we finally get a concrete answer of what the Night King wants: destruction. The White Walkers were created by the Children of the Forest to protect them from the First Men. Well, as we know, things backfired and the Children of the Forest and First Men HAD to team up to eradicate the threat. But what does the Night King want? Simple, to destroy Westeros. There’s not a gigantic hidden meaning or anything like that.

The three-eyed raven was a human that lived among the Children of the forest, so he wants their master. So that means that the Night King wants Bran, but why wouldn’t he make a pitstop first? This introduces me to my next point on why the Night King is going to King’s Landing:

He can attack from multiple sides

Think about it, everybody is ready for the Night King to go for Bran. Theon and the Ironborn are prepped to protect Bran in the Godswood, but are they prepared to have a legion of Dead soldiers marching from the South?! The White Walkers approaching Winterfell could be Army A, while the Night King flies on his dragon north and begins killing and reviving people to join a B Army.

They’d close in on Winterfell from the north, south, and possibly even east and west! We didn’t see the entire army of the dead standing behind those White Walkers, what if more are stashed in the other directions? However, how’s about this…

The Night King will sit on the Iron Throne

Who said anything about Cersei keeping the Throne till the end? She’s sitting on the Seven Kingdoms thinking she’s safe (just like Winterfell thinks he’ll storm in), so the unpredictable thing would be the attacking her from the skies. She thinks her weapon will work on dragons, but what about an undead Dragon?!  

If the Night King truly wants to wipe out the entire Kingdom, he could freeze that Iron Throne and recruit everyone (or even just the Kingsguard) in Kings Landing to help him destroy the land of Westeros.

It’d be too predictable if the Night King ran (or flew, rather) headfirst into Winterfell. Everyone already has a plan for that predicament, so the Night King likely has something up his sleeve—attacking King’s Landing first, getting the Throne and taking an army back.
