Okay, NOW Have We Seen The Most Wildly Unrealistic Thing Ever on GoT??? in E06: Beyond the Wall Posted August 23, 2017 · Edited August 23, 2017 by iprayiam 7 minutes ago, Lord Okra said: So they were going to run around until they found a cave (or better yet, one just pops up) while being run down by wights....then stop for 4 hours to secure the entrance and the wights were going to.....wait????? That'd have been far worse than the lake just appearing in front of them. So they were going to run around until they found a like with an island in the middle (or better yet one just pops up).... I don't really see the difference. It's easy to imagine a scene where the snow gives out under them and they fall into a deep valley/ canyon/mouth of a cave, and the snow barricades them in behind them. There are a thousand ways this could have been executed. Something similar to the entrance to the mines of Moria for example. Replace the squid monster with an undead Giant and the cave in with a snow in. Quote the wights were going to.....wait?????' No, I specifically said, they'd spend the time digging instead of... waiting like they did in the actual episode.
