Game of Thrones dealt with all the political retreats and struggles for the Iron Throne for the first few seasons, but now it's all about the few living characters who stand up against the impressive White Walkers.
While they were initially seen as mindless creatures, the show introduced the Night King's original character to bring them on a quest to … do something. His last goal has not yet been revealed.
Some may think that the wisdom of White Wanderers, if they are a smart leader, undermines their entire force of nature, but showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss argue that his creation is "logical."
Talking to Entertainment Weekly Weiss said:
It was almost logical when you dated back in time We've seen what the White Walkers do, we saw them immortalizing themselves and creating the Wights Well, they did these things … so, what did they do? the implication that it was not some kind of cosmic evil that had been there since the beginning of time, except that the White Walkers had a story – something that seems legendary, mythological, and enduring It was understandable how the on-screen wars that we see are understandable, they are the result of people or beings with motives that we can understand.
Benioff added that he does not consider the Night King evil, but rather rather for "than Death "and that he will therefore never speak would diminish the character.
Game of Thrones Season 8 will premiere on April 14, 2019 on HBO .
