The next episode of the show is all set to be an exciting one where the battle between the Night King and the forces of Jon Snow and Daenerys actually begin.
Last Sunday also accounted for largest night of streaming activity ever for HBO, and the premiere was also the most-tweeted episode in "Thrones" history with more than 5 million tweets on the day it aired. No place in Winterfell is safer than the crypts. The women and children are going to the be in the crypts hiding out from the white walkers...except, as Jon Snow's dream references, the ACTUAL DEAD are also in crypts.
It would have been a very good plan, anyway, if the think-tank over at Winterfell wasn't overlooking one gaping hole in their logic - which is, that the Night King can resurrect the dead, and those crypts (with only one way in and one way out) happen to be chock full of Stark corpses. And there's no Night King anywhere in sight leading the charge.
Some are even of the belief that the Night King specifically headed for Winterfell for the first major battle because he wants to raise the dead, specifically an entity known as the Great Other who might be buried there. Taking to Twitter, some fans pointed out that putting them all in a tomb when the Night King can raise anyone from the dead to fight for him was probably a bad idea.
Then there's the whole thing about the crypts being protected by magic. The first two episodes of the show have already made the GOT fans go into a frenzy with the intriguing dialogues and emotional reunions.
It's without a doubt one of the biggest questions fans still have in regards to HBO's Game of Thrones, even as we quickly approach the series finale.
