Alert fans are already noticing a big hint from Season 7 Episode 6 of Game of Thrones concerning the mountain where that big battle took place. It looks very similar to the location where the White Walkers were first created.
This post has spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6.
First, take a look at Arrowhead Mountain, where Jon Snow and his crew arrived just before that huge battle. This is the mountain that the Hound saw in his vision when he looked in the fire:
Now compare this to the location where the White Walkers (more specifically the Night King) were first created by the Children of the Forest:
Yes, these are the same locations, separated by thousands of years. It’s the same arrowhead mountain, with the same mountain ranges next to it, just from the other side most likely.
When the White Walkers ran wild and took over — and the Children of the Forest lost control of their creation — they turned everything into winter north of the Wall. But the identity of this location likely has a far greater meaning than just that.
Perhaps it’s just symbolic. The place where the Night King was created is also close to the place where he becomes far more powerful.
Maybe the White Walkers weren’t ever on a quest to pass the wall, but were focused on returning to the Night King’s birthplace.
Or maybe something else is going on behind the scenes that we aren’t aware of yet.
