Based on the climactic events at the end of Season Seven of Game of Thrones (if you’re reading this, I assume you know what happened) it seemed a good time to talk about the White Walkers, and what might be motivating them.

As I sometimes do, I have a feature article on the Watchers on the Wall site, talking about Game of Thrones.

I’ll be talking about Littlefinger, the scheming mastermind, but also about Catelyn Stark, not only as the reason for him kicking off his ambitious plans, but also for the end of them. Feel free to check it out.
