The Night King — and therefore his entire army — is defeated thanks to the heroic actions of Arya Stark.

The said episode is going to be 80 minutes long and will feature an epic fight between the Army of living vs the Army of dead.

Samwell Tarly: Samwell maybe the first one to kill a White Walker and he may know everything about dragonglass but we know that he is not a good fighter.
