Attention All GoT Fans – White Walkers’ Symbol is Explained
Game of Thrones is breaking records as HBO’s highest telecast with 17.4 million viewers tuning into its final season premiere. We are not about to discuss how the episodes go, but there’s something big we might have seen, without even noticing.
The White Walkers’ Symbol. Made of anything, usually human body parts, in spiral shape. Dave Hill, Writer of “Winterfell” episode, reveals the meaning behind the mysterious spiral. “As we saw with Bran and the Three-Eyed Raven, the spiral pattern was sacred to the Children of the Forest, who created the Night King by sacrificing a captured man in a spiral “henge of stones.” The Night King then adopted the symbol as a sort of blasphemy, like Satan with the upside-down cross.”
These symbols have appeared many times before in the series, while Bran witness the creation of the Night King, or when Night’s Watch go beyond the wall and witness a spiral formation of dead horse parts. This clarifies and gives you insight of the history between the Children of the Forest and the First Men. Have you watch the 2nd episode yet? It’s epic. And the 3rd episode are said to be the longest episode of GoT and largest battle sequence of GoT.
