Undead traditional tactic is simple. Have the Cleric or Pally cast turn undead. Fucking King of the North came to a fight with undead and failed to recruit a Cleric or Pally. Beric is a pally but obviously too low level to turn undead.
The average wight cant weigh more than what, 60-100 pounds? Only the very recently raised would still have most of their mass left. Massed cavalry charge would honestly have never stopped until the horses got tired, aside from running into the occasional giant.
Plot twist: The flaming arakhs slowly winking out wasn't the Dothraki dying, they just rode down so many wights that they were too far away to be seen anymore.
They had no room if you think about it. They wanted space to retreat and you had the trench and shit there. Once the undead get close those catapults are worthless, might as well have them out of the way. Better to have a mass of Unsullied bodies there.just rewatching this episode and I noticed they placed catapults in front of the infantry
lol what the fuck.
Four and five would have been pretty good if they were trimmed and combined. He added so many new characters and weird, meandering plotlines. It was his way of stalling for time because he clearly had little clue where to take this thing after the insanity of A Storm of Swords
If they really wanted to piss people off they would of ended this episode with the NK standing in front of Bran so people could speculate for a week only to be left disappointed as Ayra does her shit. They would of went full Hollywood cocksucker and ended the show with the NK looking down on Bran about to reach for his sword and the preview for next week would be some Euron gayness.
Before I catch up on this thread - I interpreted Melisandre's death as her waiting all this time to die because she wanted to make sure she ended up with the God of light and not in the night king's army.
