Welcome to our Game of Thrones Special Week – The best moments from the previous seasons and countdown to the Season 5 premiere on this Sunday 12. The Night’s Watch prepare to defend the Wall for the coming invasion by the wildlings Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode “The Watchers on the Wall” (S04E09). All gifs cortesy by Giffferr.
Jon Snow, looking out over the north side of the Wall, sees a massive fire burning, and he and his brothers complete the preparations for battle. Ygritte, having scouted the entrance of Castle Black, reports that it is undermanned, and Styr orders the group to attack. As Ser Alliser orders the archers to nock, another horn blast informs him that the castle is being attacked from both sides. Alliser leaves charge of the Wall to Janos Slynt, and heads for the castle to battle with the Thenns. On top of the Wall, Janos Slynt proves to be inept as a commander, so Grenn tricks him to go down to the castle, leaving Jon in charge. Source: Wikipedia.
Ser Alliser: One hundred thousand you say?
Jon Snow: Yes, ser.
Ser Alliser: You can say it if you like. We should have sealed the tunnel while we had the chance, like you suggested.
Jon Snow: It was a difficult decision either way, ser.
Ser Alliser: Do you know what leadership means, Lord Snow? It means that the person in charge gets second-guessed by every clever little twat with a mouth. But if he starts second-guessing himself, that’s the end for him, for the clever little twats, for everyone. This is not the end. Not for us. Not if you lot do your duty for however long it takes to beat them back. And then you get to go on hating me, and I get to go on wishing
your wildling whore had finished the job.
Ser Alliser: Brothers! A hundred generations have defended this castle. She’s never fallen before. She will not fall tonight. Those are Thenns at our walls.
They eat the flesh of the men they kill. Do you want to fill the belly
of a Thenn tonight?
Ser Alliser: Tonight we fight. And when the sun rises, I promise you, Castle Black will stand! The Night’s Watch will stand!
Ser Alliser: With me now! Now with me!
