I know there's a lot of theories out there but I want to hear yours please:)
Does anyone else think Winterfell is the worst castle to make a last stand against the Night King’s forces?
It is cut off from the rest of the realm, there’s not enough supplies to sustain the people already there (let alone the army outside its walls) and it is vulnerable to becoming outflanked and overwhelmed by the Night King.
Compare this to the Eyrie: It is a castle literally designed to hold off an army with superior numbers! Even with Viserion, the White Walkers and wights would have a difficult time hitting the Stark-Targaryen forces as decisively as Winterfell. A contingent of archers with dragon glass arrows and fire barrels could easily hold off the Night King at the Bloody Gate.
Then there’s the needless sacrifice of placing the bulk of Dany and Jon’s armies outside Winterfell’s walls. This makes no sense strategically, why would you expose them like this if they cannot maneuver on the battlefield?
I guess Game of Thrones wouldn’t be GoT without breaking our hurts this Sunday by killing off some major characters in the process, but it seems to me like Winterfell is a wonderful location for our heroes to become martyrs!
I have feeling Jon will ride on a dragons back for the battle of winterfell. And dany isn’t to please after finding out that Jon’s the rightful heir on the iron throne, and obviously threatened after hearing it because she wants the iron throne but won’t get it and die during the end of the battle of winterfell most likely.
