The Long Night Opening Scene Part III - Dothraki Charge The White Walkers - 4K Video Quality

  • Published on May 2, 2019
  • After Melisandre ignites the Dothrakis' swords with fire, they begin the charge towards the White Walkers.
    The Dothraki charge the enemy, but are swiftly annihilated; a few survivors, including Jorah, are able to retreat and regroup with the remaining armies. As they begin formation, a snowstorm quickly overwhelms the forces of the living. Eddison Tollett is killed saving Samwell Tarly. Deviating from their plan to intercept the Night King, the dragonriders arrive and burn the advancing wights as the living begin retreating into the castle but the Night King creates a winter storm just as Jon Snow is about to burn the White Walker generals, rendering the dragons ineffective as there is no visibility.

    I remember watching this for the first time. When they started charging I started screaming "What the hell are you doing?? Stay and hold the fcking line!!" But no.. the writers had to do it just to capture that shot with Jorah and ghost, that flames going out in the distance. Fck this sh*t!

    If not the scariest episode of all , Jorah's face was hopeless 3:01 as if he was coming back from hell

    Why wasn't the artillery lobbing wildfire down range? Effective against the undead, looks cool and would have allowed them to see the wights.

    Both the last good episode and a disappointing reminder that this is it for the walkers :( (Now imagining a world in my head where their was another season that made seasons 8/7 worth it :(.... what a fucking mess

    1. Artillery firing 24/7
    2. Light the damn battlefield
    3. Arm everyone EVERYONE with bows and obsidian arrows. Remember, Dothraki? Famed horse archers? The other archers on raised platforms/towers.
    4. Have defensive walls/spikes/trenches and fire rings in layers and layers to blunt the impetus of the undead charge.
    5. Unsullied shield wall as last line of defense.
    6. Save one dragon for the Night King while the other rakes the battlefield with dragonfire 24/7
    They could have won the battle with minimal casualties but they're too fucking stupid.

    The night King being resolved in this episode makes season 7 as a whole irrelevant. Why go beyond the wall to get a wight to get Cersei to agree to a truce? They didn't even need Cersei's help, so they wasted their time doing that. I was hoping the night King would make it to Kings Landing since it was snowing when Jaime left Cersei he looked back and snow started to fall in Kings Landing. But winter never came to Kings Landing. Then after the night king was over, Dany's army multiplies and easily defeats Cersei's forces, so what was the point of season 7 when she could've just stormed Kings Landing in season 7 episode 3 and sent ravens to the other Kingdoms to send their armies North to defeat the Night King. But instead she kept listening to Tyrion's dumb ass and I never understood why Tyrion trusted Cersei.

      I agree with you on the most part but the main purpose of getting a truce with Cersei is make sure she doesn't try to think of backstabbing them while they are fighting the dead.

    It would be scarier if the undead were a bunch of Matt Laurier's or Weinstein's screaming, "I can make you a star but there's a price". Terrifying 😨👌👈😭

      Kim Cornwall 14 days ago

      David Lynch me too. I was thinking, they could’ve been smarter with their weaponry as well. The Dothraki would’ve been more effective with something similar to what Benjen Stark used and at the walls, a huge stockpile of those explosives that the children of the forest used. Far more effective than Arakhs and arrows.

    I get the Calvalry being outside the walls but why tf were the infantry not manning the walls?

    • Ryan
      Ryan 6 days ago

      @Hayden Lau Especially as they're light cavalry. Rohirrim in LOTR were heavy cavalry, which you DO send at infantry. Light cavalry are not meant for that role, kind of why they got obliterated.

      And honestly no lie, if it wasn't for the Dragon before, they would've also lost to the Lannister army too.

    • Hayden Lau

      Also, the cavalry are famous horse ARCHERS why TF send them into a suicidal frontal melee assault?

    They could have done this as the ending but with the Dothraki winning charge, directly towards the night king. Yeah im still upset about GoT and thinking of ways to make it better.

    I really liked the charge part, the way they ride toward complete darkness against undeads that assault you like a tidal wave is... kind scary. Not to mention the part were all lights slowly fade and survivors run back. Simply amazing. Other parts I loved is when Sansa and Tyrion hide behind the tomb and when the track "The Night King" plays.

  • Cronk

    i know that this scene was made to show how raw and dark the nightkings army is, but from a pure strategic perspective..... this was a very odd choice to charge like that... into the darkness, no visability,

    why not have them stationed on the castles sides, wait for the enemy to attack in the front, the use the cavalry to flank them

    i say this with years of playing Rome total war lol, so dont listn to me

    also... in close combat like this, wouldnt it be better to have smaller swords and axes? swinging large two handed weapons and a FAT mace that probably weighs a shit load takes quite alot of momentum to have any proper force

    Edit 2:
    Also, why the fuck did they place the trebuchet in front like that?`????

    FUUUUUCK I HATE David Benioff and D.B. Weiss... they fucked up this show so bad, i hope they never get a job in hollywood again.

    • Ryan
      Ryan 6 days ago

      No no, you are 100% correct. Light cavalry are ALWAYS meant to flank. Feel good about saying that because it just shows you, unlike D&D, have an IQ above 5.

      Seriously, this entire battle is moronic.

    Reminds me of another movie
    Dothraki 1:" So we're charging in darkness into a forest and without knowing who or what is there?"
    Dothraki leader: "So?"
    Dothraki 1:"So it'd be nice to see!"
    Dothraki leader: "Goddamn it! This is a raid! I can't see, you can't see! - So what? All that matters is can the fuckin' horse see. That's a raid!

  • Djangus Roundstone

    The way the wights just devours everyone in the beginning make's it so stupid how their entire defence isn't just done and dusted within a minute. I mean they're overwhelmed by a SEA of UNDEAD, just coming in waves. Yet somehow all the main characters survive. Over and over again. It really is a tragic ending for a show that once used to be so great. Because it was grounded in realism, even within it's fantasy setting. It had its own rules that it followed. All that got thrown out the window the last seasons.

  • Jorge Castro-Salinas

    Can we just say, for the sake of storyline purposes, how epic and honorable is for Jorah, after being exiled from home and become a wanted man by Ned Stark, to come back, lead a charge for the defense of Winterfell next to a direwolf. Just let that sink in for a second.
