[Spoilers] Rant & Rave without Repercussion, Final edition in E06: The Iron Throne Posted May 23, 2019 13 hours ago, TheFirstofHerName said: The grass always appears greener on the other side.....until you’ve tried it out. I don’t think the wildlings felt like they fit in and were accepted. Some of them probably liked it south of the wall but not all them. They wanted to go home. They just wanted the freedom to wander without the confines of the Wall and to getaway from the White Walkers. I don’t think there is a real NW anymore. It was just a ruse by Tyrion to convince GW not to kill Jon. The only folks there when they opened the gates were Tormund and the wildlings. The supposedly NW who accompanied him had no fresh recruits with them and let Jon lead. It seems unlikely that Grey Worm knows or cares anything about the Night's Watch, or that the difference between Jon taking the black vs. simply being banished beyond the wall (essentially what ended up happening) is something that would matter to him, so I'm not sure what would be the point of a ruse here.
