    Theres a quick scene of the white walkers approaching the gate. They must meet up with the Night King en route to the Godswood.

    I assumed they'd reveal something that would surprise us.

    But apparently he was just an evil ice robot, with no depth and no point.
    The novels are the "Song of Fire and Ice"... But the TV show is "Game of Thrones". Maybe that is something the two diverge deliberately, in the novels, the fight agaist the Night King might be the final battle.

    But maybe not. I don't remember anything from the novels about the Night King, and should we not have learned much more by now about him?
    I think he might just remain a more or less abstract enemy and the real things are always the human characters - characters that we can actually relate to.

    Maybe it happened so that all the people Arya killed so far didn't have blue eyes? Seems questionable, but I won't sift through the episodes to figure it out

    His theme song is Behind Blue Eyes by The Who. It is known.

    There were other people with blue eyes she has killed. The trigger for the eureka moment in the last episode is actually a changing in the order the Red witch lists the colors.

    Here we see her list blue eyes last, and with some significant looks added for effect. So it isn't a huge leap that a horde of blue-eyed zombies' leader, with the same eye color, is targeted.

    Theres an historical figure called the Nights King in the books, but no king of the white walkers has been introduced yet. In terms of the shows Night King, I think well have to wait for one of the spin-off series (apparently there are four in the works?!) to elaborate on his backstory / motivations.

    She could have just straight up told her that she is going to kill the Night King. Why bother talking in mysteries at this point?
    Okay, I get that they're keeping it a surprise for us as an audience. But in the context of the story, it makes little sense to be so vague about it.

    Maybe for the same reason that their plan was to charge light cavalry into the middle of an enemy in the middle of the night with weapons that couldn't hurt them.

    The officers got trained via a book in the British Officer School of Cavalry Charges: Crimean War Edition with a preface by George Custer.
