Can Lyanna Mormont get some love?


She was not a trained assassin like Arya, and yet, she charged a giant wight. And she KILLED IT as she died! That's badass in my book.

It’s courage combined with good luck. It’s not skill. Arya, Brienne, Bronn, The Unsullied, even the Dothraki are skilled.

reply

yeah, the gigant pretty much put her in his eye

You know the writers wanted her to have her moment by doing that, but really the giant would ordinarily have just crushed her in an instant and be done with it.

I was expecting a few more wight giants. They showed us a glimpse in that one scene of the wights on their march towards The Wall, and there were 2 or 3 giants then, and that was just a section of the army.

A lot of success on a battlefield can be attributed to courage and good luck over skill. The French were just as skilled as the English at Agincourt.

Lyanna KNEW that she was the last of her house (in the show anyway. She isn't in the books.) And she KNEW that, given the Army of the Dead's questionable swimming abilities, the people of Bear Island may actually have been relatively safe if they had stayed home (unlike the ones of Deepwood Motte, most likely). But she still brought her people to Winterfell when Sansa called the banners. Because she swore loyalty to House Stark. And she knew that the the survival of the human race was more important than that of her house. Her charging the giant doesn't make her any less badass.

No ...as the last of her line, she should've been down in the crypts with the rest of the women and children.

reply

She's so cute, that little firebrand! I jus' wanna pick her up and SQUEEZE her!

reply

I'm not saying it wasn't a lucky shot, but she showed bravery and determination.

reply

She was a minor character designed to pander to critics of the show being male-driven ... a tough little girl bossing men around.

Her death was supposed to look “bad ass” but it involved the giant lifting her to its eye for absolutely no reason.

reply

She gets all the love. Toughest death of the episode.

reply

The after show had the writers explaining that they wanted her death to be a moment. That if she had to die, it needed to count.

reply

Wish they found a better way of making it count

Instead of the giant wight lifting her up to eye level for no reason at all .. pretty sure the wights are instructed to just kill whatever living thing comes in their way, instead of taking time to play around with victims for a bit
