Why didn't Jon point out the white walkers when Dany showed up? [closed] - White Surface

S07E06 Beyond the Wall; This episode frustrated me:

When Dany showed up to save Jon and the others, why didn't he point out the walkers?

He already knew that killing them also kills their "sired" wights. Instead they waste time only killing wights when at least one could have been hunting the king and the other walkers.

I understand needing to make certain things happen for the plot line but at least make it believable. There is no way he wouldn't have signaled their position as soon as Dany and him made eye contact.

Jon didn't tell her because he was too busy defending the rest of the group from the wights that were trying to get to them.

For all we know the rest of the group could have told Dany when they got on board with Drogon. The reason Drogon didn't attack the White Walkers is that he was likely too far away. So flying off to attack them would mean abandoning Jon, something which I'm sure Dany, and the rest of the group, doesn't want to do.

I can think of two reasons she didn't tell Rhaegal and Viserion:

  1. She can't control them properly, she has a strong bond with them but she is only bound to Drogon so can't properly order them around.
  2. They're off attacking wights and flying around. The odds are that they wouldn't have heard her anyway.

Another reason, though I'm not sure they know it, is that the White Walkers, or at least the Night King, can part fire near them. There is then reason to believe that the dragon fire wouldn't touch them at all.


OOU it would have made for a boring storyline and would end the main plot. Though we'd still have season 8 in the form of who wins the iron throne, I doubt it would keep as many people hooked as when the dead threat was still around.

Why did the White Walker King not burn?

So, it shouldn't be a shock to anyone that he was able to withstand the direct blaze from Drogon's fire. And his immunity to fire doesn't have anything to do with a possible Targaryen lineage but rather everything to do with his magic. The only way to defeat him is with Valyrian steel, and that's just what Arya does.

What happens when Jon is surrounded by White Walkers?

The wight is among a group being led by a White Walker when they are ambushed by a group consisting of Jon Snow, Tormund, Jorah Mormont, Sandor Clegane, Beric Dondarrion, Thoros, Gendry and several wildlings. Once Jon kills the White Walker with Longclaw, the other wights drop dead, leaving this one alone.

Why was the dragon staring at Jon?

Weiss said, \u201cSeeing Jon and Dany on the dragons together is a Jon and Dany moment, but it also seeds in the idea these creatures will accept Jon Snow as one of their riders.\u201d So when Rhaegal and Drogon stare at Jon, it's not anything malicious. It's pure respect.
