I thought Sam was going to be out fighting, what with being the first person to kill a whitewalker and all. Or was the point that Jon overruled him and sent him to the crypts? If he, Tyrion, Gilly and that little girl are all down there, I feel much better about it.You also have Sam, Gilly, and Tyrion down there, who might not be strong combatants but can still think on their feet and come up with a response.
Well Cersei knows about fire and dragonglass but seems to be short on the dragonglass. Big disadvantage.My guess: Jon is gonna bite it. He was brought back, and both him and Berric (one-eyed dude?) is gonna bite it, because they have a purpose for being brought back.
Sansa ruling on Iron Throne? Frankly, might work. Other thing I can see is going back to a pre-Targ period, with disparate kingdoms. Hell, Sansa could unite the Vale, Riverlands and North by herself.
And poor Jon. Like.... good commander, great warrior, honorable dude.... terrible at women. Sometimes I can still see him just wanting to stay dead.
As for chemistry...I can see it on occasion, but in this episode, I didn't. The actors have to work at it a bit.
Dany still needs to realize wanting something hard won't work well, especially with the North. Also, interesting....this maybe the first time Dragons are up North, if I remember my history right. For sure they didn't conquer the North, and I don't think there were a lot of wars afterwards?
Also, I think we're going to see some Cersei vs Night King action...mainly cause I'm curious what would the Dead Mountain do? Could he join the dead side?
Bran is helluva creepy...also really liked his answer to dragons vs night king. Really puts a lot of stuff into perspective.
This! I pointed out to my co-watcher that the Dothraki have been conspicuously absent during this last preparing for battle episode. And come to think of it, the master of the Vale cavalry has been consulting with Sansa A LOT in this ep as well.The Dothraki and Vale cavalry. I have seen a lot of Unsullied marching in but no Dothraki hordes. And the heavy Vale cavalry is still at Winterfell as well.
John has seen how the White Walkers like to do battle at Hardhome. I will laugh my ass off when if he nails the watching bastards on their undead horses with a cavalry charge while they are observing the infantry battle from a hill.
You have Berric as well, who could pull off a resurrection stunt (as he did in a plot line the show didn't pursue).EDIT: Oh, and I have a feeling Melissandre's role is to show up and give someone the Last Kiss of R'hllor, so we will get a shock death that gets undone, fulfilling Melissandre's vision that she will die in Westeros in the process.

Spoiler re: how this may be handled in the books:I think that would make me kind of mad. Shireen's death put me off the show for a long time; I actually stopped watching as I felt they'd gone from GRR's earned deaths to misery porn.
