Having read the (so far 5) novels and even on the show , the followers of R'hllor , some from Essos, many in Essos , warn about 'The Great Other' (which the show had dubbed as The Night King) and prophesie a savior. What is not clear is … do they think if the Great Other is not stopped it will take over Essos? GRRM sure has The Lord of Light as 'somekind' of important element of the story, almost as if Essos which has even greater resources than Dany's (Essos derived) Unsullied and Dothraki , will intervene too , but , for the show, I don't know.Exactly, it is the last place I would be. In fact, I'd be somewhere South, trying to get a ship somewhere. But, if I would be forced to stay in the Winterfell, the crypt would be out of the question. I'd rather be heating oil, watching those flying napalm throwers roasting the Dead, while wishing for an ellusive wizard to come battle with the necromancer.
Anyway 8.3 should be a heck of an episode BUT!, note, Miguel Sapochnik , besides doing E3 is doing E5. Sapochnik has become the GO TO guy for the BIG STUFF... the SOP of GoT has been that the next to last episode has a barn burner, not that the last doesn't have something... so as good Ep 3 will be there should be big Wammy in Ep5.
