When I woke up to a Game of Thrones Season 7 episode 6 leak, I was like ‘You definitely GOT to be kidding me’. I mean, of course, I was dying to watch the latest episode, but not before its television debut. Now that it’s officially aired on Hotstar, here I bring to you the spoilers for Game of Thrones season 7 episode 6 ‘Beyond the Wall’ (which HBO Spain and HBO Nordic had “accidentally ” released way earlier than its actual release). Here’s what happened beyond the wall
Warning: Spoilers of ‘Beyond the Wall’ is just a scroll away and if you’re yet to see it, please click away now.
In today’s episode, Jon Snow, Jorah Mormont, Tormund Giantsbane (the legendary wildling leader who supports Mance Rayder), Thoros of Myr, Beric Dondarrion, Gendry (bastard son of Robert Baratheon), Sandor Clegane (the Hound) marches beyond the wall to bring proof (of White Walkers’ existence) for the two queens – Daenerys and Cercei Lannister. While they were heading towards their disaster, a reanimated Polar Bear attacks them. Though they manage to kill the Bear, Thoras is badly wounded, fighting the bear. Beric tries to cauterize his wounds with his flaming sword and saves his life. With a man down and Thoras who is fighting between life and death, they yet continue to march.
Sooner, they come across few others; while they kill the rest, they capture one (wight) to bring him to King’s Landing as to get Cercei and Daenery believe. They put the Wight in chains and try to immobilise him. As they were pretty sure of getting trapped beyond the wall, and they see the Wight army approaching, Jon commands Gendry to run back to Eastwatch and send a raven to Daenerys to come and rescue them. they are surrounded by the army of the dead.
As they run, they come together on a frozen lake and wait for the Wights to attack them. While all of this is taking place, Thoros succumbs to his injuries and die. So Berric, with his flaming sword burns Thoros so that he does not come back as a Wight. As the lake begins to refreeze, the dead marches towards them to attack and that’s when we hear the Dragon roars of Drogon, Viserion and Rhaegal. As the Jon and company are being attacked by the army of the dead, there comes Daenerys with her three Dragons to rescue Jon and others. As she rescues Jon and company, everyone except Jon gets on Rhaegal and Drogon, while Viserion kills the Wights.
Jon, the hero, stays back to fight the Wights so that his people could board the Dragons. There comes the Night King, who grabs the ice spear and is about to target the Dragon on whom Daenerys and the group were sitting but then he turns to slosh that one Dragon that was so far away flying in the air. Wait, What? Why on earth did he not take Daenerys out as she who came here with them? While she was stationary, the Night King decides to attack the one who was flying in the air. As the spear penetrates into the Dragon’s neck, he crashed down into the frozen lake. This episode was so sad because Viserion’s dead and Well, Viserion
While Jon too sinks in the lake, the group and Daenerys have left (escaped). The Wights marches back is when Jon sneaks out of the lake and before the Wights could kill him he has been saved by Uncle Benjen. Jon too arrives at Eastwatch, meanwhile, Viserion is being pulled from the lake as the Night King commanded. Viserion opens his eyes which are as blue as the Night King.
It would be now awesome to see a war between the living and the dead as Daenery now has two Dragons and Night King has one. We just can’t wait for the finale episode, can we?
