White walkers take winterfell and march to king's landing.  They win and are about to kill cersei and what is left when she offers her newborn as a sacrifice (i e. Craster).  White walkers then retreat north.  Not likely, but just a thought.

I would have said maybe john/danny love child but that would take to long with number of episodes left

Was there any reason given why the WW's are that interested in newborns?  They can pretty much take what they want and evidently cannot procreate - but what are they doing with the newborns to leverage not killing everyone?

WHO IS FEEDING THE WW BABIES AND CHANGING THEIR DIAPERS!?! 

Lazy writing if you ask me. 

Speaking of changing diapers, not once did they show anyone cleaning Bran's diapers. People paralyzed from the waste down can't control their bodily functions. Such lazy writing not to show Asha wiping Bran's ### every episode.

Maybe that's why he always has that sour ### look on his face- nobody has bothered to do this for him yet.

I thought they showed that the WW's (except for the NK) were Crasters newborns....that the NK had an agreement with Craster to keep supplying him with soldiers and he'll leave him alone and not kill him so he can just  pork all of his wives.

I kept wondering if the babies magically became old dudes after they were converted or if there was a bunch of toddler white walkers running around for a few years until they grew up.

They are dead...what else are they going to do?

Something to do with their lineage?

For as useless as Bran is, I assume that him saying that they want to wipe everything out and have an "endless night" is kind of the root of what they're going for.

I mean to me it seems like a lot of work, but what do I know.

The dead would walk 500 miles
And then would walk 500 more
Just to be the horde who walks a thousand miles
To end this apocalyptic war

I don't know either.

I think there is more to the night king than what we have been shown.  I wouldn't be shocked if he ends up being a stark.

There has to be some reason why they waited 1000 years.

I don't believe Crastor's heritage has ever come up. Books or show. 

I could have sworn I saw something somewhere that said he descended from a Targ Night Watchman, perhaps even the NK.  

Sue me.

I keep looking at that medallion around his neck and think it looks like a spearhead made of dragonglass. Wonder where it came from? NK doesn't impress me as a dude really concerned with style points so have something like that if it didn't represent something.

They may have. Just because I don't think so isn't really that big of a deal. 

They haven't, call the lawyer.

I just can't find any info about the "Ice Dragon" lore from that article you linked existing in ASOIAF. There is a quote with no citation, but I found this which seems to imply the ice dragon stuff comes from a childrens book Martin wrote that isn't in the same universe as GoT:

It's probably the spearhead the forrest kids killed him with to turn him.

It is kind of a really dumb plan when you think about it - sending all the women and children to the crypt.

 

You have the Night King who can raise the dead whenever they are in the same vicinity.  Why would you send the most vulnerable to the place loaded with dead people?

Some notes:

  • I'm too lazy, but here's my Bran meme: John Snow hugs Bran, Bran replies, "I. AM. A. ROBOT."
  • Mrs. Dogg is certain that Jamie will kill Cersei. I would love it if Arya had that honor.
  • Series writer Bryan Cogman's potential Game Of Thrones prequel series has been axed by HBO.
  • Podrick has a wonderful singing voice.
  • That scene where Jaime knights Brienne really choked me up.

Maybe they just want to be the man who walks a thousand miles just to fall down at your door.

Because it's super safe.  C'mon man the writers beat us over the head with that fact.

Nk doesn't know there's a crypt. I think he only raises dead people/animals that he or his army kills or happens to come across.
