Why do they need to catch a wight, dead turn into them

Recommended Posts

it doesn't always work that way. In the books this is adressed



he puts dead wildlings they find north of the wall and puts them in an ice cell. But they don't turn

Also many say if they aren't killed near the others (or fighting them) they don't turn. The two that mromont brought south of the wall had already turned to some degree because they weren't rotting and their eyes were that creepy glow blue

help! this seems a huge plot hole. can someone explain why using the dead like what happenedened at the wall in earlier seasons isn't the simpler approach?

It's not an automatic thing. A walker has to turn them on, and to do that they have to know the bodies are there.
