Obviously, this article is going to be dark and full of spoilers. If you didn’t watch last night’s “The Long Night” episode, what are you thinking spending time on the Internet today?
I pity those who were unable to watch Game of Thrones live last night. The event TV series had one of its most memorable and heartbreaking episodes yet and all around the world people watched to see what would happen in the big battle against the Night King.
As it turns out, neither Jon Snow nor Daenerys Targaryen ultimately took on the leader of the White Walkers, although they both spent time battling his dragon and Jon nearly got a good look at the icy king before the Night King raised more dead. Later, Theon took a stand against the Night King and died because of that stand. Meanwhile, Arya had taken on the guise of a White Walker to get close.
She capably took out the Night King and audiences worldwide seem to have had the best time with the moment. But don’t take my word for it. Relive the big moment with a group, below.
A viral video is running around about fans reacting to the final scene in the episode, in which Arya used her Faceless Men skills to get close. There are gasps, screams and bloodcurdling cries as Arya gets close and seemingly is caught by the Night King.
The viral Tweet above is not the only moment that caught a large swathe of viewers in action, either. Take a look at this bar scene, below, courtesy of Barstool Sports.
The big Arya moment was foreshadowed mid-episode when The Hound and Beric Dondarrion went to track her down within Winterfell. She was in a bit of a pickle, and ultimately while saving her, Beric didn’t make it out. However, before that Arya realized her Faceless Men skills could be a boon in the battle against the White Walkers.
She headed to the weirwood at the right time and took on the Night King, effectively winning the battle her friends and family were most definitely losing. Yet, it came at a cost. Numerous characters died—some of whom had been on Game of Thrones since the pilot episode.
We’ve already seen a bit from Episode 4, but if you missed scenes from next week, you can watch and throw in your own over-the-top reactions.
Game of Thrones will return for its fourth and third to last episode this Sunday night at 9 p.m. ET. For more on what's heading to TV, take a look at CinemaBlend's full schedule.
Amazing Race & Top Chef superfan with a pinch of Disney fairy dust thrown in. If you’ve created a rom-com I’ve probably watched it.
