Why didn't the Night King throw the spear at Jon Snow and team? - Woods Covered With Snow

In S07E06 of Game of Thrones, we see the Night King killing a dragon with an ice spear.

That got me thinking why didn't he use those spears to kill Jon Snow and others when the white walkers were waiting for ice to form for almost one night.

Could there be a specific reason for that?



Best Answer

There was no need.

Jon and his group weren't going anywhere, They were trapped on a island in the middle of an ice lake and he was happy to wait.

We've seen that the night King is very patient and is taking his time in actually attacking the South.

It's not until Danaerys and her dragons appear that there is any danger to his forces or any urgency.

Then he takes down an immediate threat rather than one that certainly can wait.

Why did the dragon spare Jon?

Game of Thrones' Drogon chose not to kill Jon Snow because of his Targaryen blood, his love for Daenerys, and Drogon's possible understanding that while Jon committed the act, he wasn't the reason for Daenerys' death in Game of Thrones' ending.

Who was responsible behind the creation of night king?

He was created by the Children of the Forest. In one of Bran's visions, we see a group of the Children creating a White Walker (presumably the Night King) by tying a man to a tree and plunging dragonglass into his chest until he began to transform.

Answer 2

Short Answer:

He needed a dragon to bring down the 700ft high, 300-mile long wall. That's why he patiently waited for the Jon and Co to capture a white walker, the raven to fly out to Dragonstone and then Dany to come in with her dragons.

The Ice Dragon



Long Answer

Maybe because he cannot kill Jon Snow!

Here's my speculation:-

When the long night fell upon Westeros for the first time and the white walkers invaded the western land, the first men searched for children of the forest because they thought that their magic could help defeat the white walkers.

No one truly knows how were the white walkers defeated for the first time, but there are myths that the last hero from the first men fended off attacks from the Wights and finally reached children of the forest to gain their help. The night's watch was formed. The walkers were defeated and they retreated to the far north of Westeros and the Wall was built. Bran the builder (Founder of House Stark), along with the children of the forest were able to cast some spells on the wall to keep the white walkers away. And then the night's watch and the castle black was formed.

According to the legend, the 13th lord commander of the wall (who was stark) fell in love with a white walker (night's queen) and named himself the night's king making that white walker his bride. A marriage was arranged to keep the peace between white walkers and the first men which a tradition in Westeros to keep peace and build alliances. If this is true, then their children will be half white walkers and half stark which explain why the Starks have such an affinity for cold weather and why they tend to be wargs and green-seers. All the Stark children are wargs, they each have a special connection with their respective direwolves. This half white/half stark also explains to some extent why Melisandre was able to bring Jon back to life.

Jon, having ancestry from both Targaryen (Fire) and Stark (Ice) makes him the perfect candidate for the song of Fire & Ice and bringing peace to Westeros.
