Why it’s epic
For years fans have been speculating that either Daenerys Targaryen or Jon Snow would be the one to deliver the final blow to the Night King and fulfill the Azor Ahai prophesy. But it was Arya Stark, after years of training to be stealth, who pounces on the Night King.
Things come full circle for Arya when Melisandre repeats the words of Arya’s very first mentor Syrio Forel back to her, “What do we say to the God of Death? Not today.” Winner
Arya Stark. This was her very first battle, and she singlehandedly saved every living person.
Lyanna Mormont for taking a wight giant out as she died by stabbing him in the eye.
This was the most epic and most expensive battle ever shot for television or film. The Battle of Winterfell was hard very dark and hard to follow.
The show switched to heart-stopping horror during the extended sequence in which Arya avoids wight detection inside the castle. Tyrion and Sansa’s bonding moments in the crypts humanized the chaotic story and pushed the political drama of the Targaryen-Stark standoff forward.
Ultimately, Arya and some magnificent plotting elevate the episode. The Night King falls. Arya uses the Valyrian steel blade that was once meant to take Bran’s life in order to save it. Bran saw all this as the Three-Eyed Raven, which is why he gave Arya the catspaw dagger. And after years of fans speculating about what would happen in this battle, Game of Thrones proves it still has the ability to surprise us.
