i hate it every time they're mentioned, and i'm like "oh yeah, i forgot about that retarded shit." the show would stand just fine on its own without that subplot. i understand that's its a device that's supposed to unite humanity and get all the 7 kingdoms fighting together against a common threat, but that's retarded too. we don't want the 7 kingdoms united. we want them at war with each other so we can root for/against different players in the ongoing power struggle

Ill reserve judgment because if you told me several years ago about a series with fire-breathing dragons, sword-fighting knights in armor, ancient giants, wily dwarves, and witches I would have told you the whole thing is dreck.

Somehow, GRRM and these two showfags have defied all odds.

Also: Hardhome was a 180 episode, among the best, and that was all about the white walkers

Hardhome and The Door are the two best Game of Thrones episodes, and both of them are centered around the White Walkers

no its retarded. assume the white walkers succeeded in wiping out humanity. what then? they don't have the same desires and thirst for power as humans that makes he show and the power struggle so captivating.

Agreed. It makes everything else pointless. What's the point of playing the game of thrones when an all powerful enemy will force an end to the infighting for a massive teamup

So winter isn't coming and there is no looming threat in the timeline. That's an improvement?

It's not a subplot - it's THE plot. The series is actually called A Song of Ice and Fire, you know? GRRM just got lost in his medieval political fanfiction somewhere along the way.

The White Walkers are kind of the point ... and a major point is that the threat has been ignored by everyone.

In GRRM's defense, the White Walkers are a generic and uninteresting plot so one can see why they're ignored.

Agreed. With the white walker threat real and now known to basically every major character, there are only two directions characters can go which are both frustrating.

1) They can set aside their old differences to fight the White Walkers, in which case it becomes just another zombie show and the various backstories and characters become irrelevant. (Most of the main cast and seen in spades during the retarded expedition north of the wall).

2) They can continue to plot for control over the seven kingdoms while the dead are coming, in which case they look like idiots (Cersei).

And the showrunners have said publicly the Night King will never have dialogue (and, by extension, that applies to the rest of the WW too unless they're pulling some retarded "LOL WE TRICKED YOU" gambit). Which means they'll always be a boring faceless force that doesn't want anything.

They couldn't leave the White Walker plot out, there's no easy way to resolve it, and now they're kind of painted into a corner. There's some interesting book theories on what the WW could be, but there's no way to fit them into the show (and they all contradict the WW origin given in the show).

The people with the show said that the Night King is going after a specific target. That has the potential to make their storyline more interesting, depending on who it is.

Cr they’re going after Bran because Bran has not yet gone back in time to become Bran the builder (of the wall). If Night King can kill Bran soon then wall never would have been built and I assume that Westeros would look very different. Watch the twist being that the Wall is what ensured thousands of years of war and chaos rather than multiethnic harmony.
