White Walkers Aren’t Fully Gone
The Theory/Prediction: The Battle for Winterfell was thrilling, but it also took out some of the biggest threats and mysteries of the series: the Night King and the White Walkers. When Arya Stark made the leap heard ‘round Westeros, she killed the Night King and destroyed the White Walkers and the Army of the Dead. After seven seasons of teasing the threat and theories running wild about the White Walkers, just one strike took them all out. Could that be it? Some people think the White Walkers are still out there and could play a role in the finale.
The Evidence: This isn’t direct evidence, but it comes straight from the creators. After Episode 3, co-showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were on Jimmy Kimmel Live! During the interview, Kimmel asked the creators: “Are we for sure done with the White Walkers?” The creators took a very long pause and Benioff chimed in: “We’re not gonna answer that.” While the creators wouldn’t reveal the answer anyway, the fact they were coy fueled the fire behind this theory.
