White Walker Zombie King | Game of Thrones Season 2 Finale

WINTER IS COMING. The finale of Game of Thrones Season 2, marks the beginning of that coming…and the beginning of the army of zombies. From the looks of it, this zombie horde (or White Walkers as the HBO series names them, The Others in the Game of Thrones book series) consists of fallen soldiers, fallen Night’s Watchmen and presumably anyone who was not burned after death, north of The Wall.

These zombies appear to be far more structured and evolved than our typical Romero zombies, and with the Game of Thrones finale also ending with our favorite Khaleesi winning back her 3 dragon children, fire and ice are sure to meet in the coming seasons.

    The White Walkers are not zombies.

    I don’t understand how so many people are confused about this.

    The White Walkers/Others are a mysterious and ancient race of creatures.
    They have the power to raise the undead, both humans and animals.

    That guy in your pictures is a White Walker riding an undead horse, and it is leading an army of zombies, or ‘wights’.
    But the White Walkers are not zombies themselves.
    Think of them as some sort of Ice Demon with the power to turn people undead.

      I suppose, if you haven’t read the Game of Thrones book series (as I have not), it might be confusing.
      The Game of Thrones HBO series has kept the White Walkers sort of a mystery, but when I see undead things
      in a trek towards living flesh, what can I say other than ZOMBIES!!!!!! Though, I am a bit bias in my thinking.

      That said, I haven’t read the books yet to know any different. Thanks!

      ‘Wights’ or ‘Others’ are people living beyong the wall and have the ability to convert the dead into living-undead, means they are evil and live outside human colonies, but they want to capture all humans and convert them into what they are.

      Dan the major issue with white walkers in the TV series, is their appearance. For the most part white walkers are in vary similar to tolkens elves. In the books they are charismatic in appearance wearing crystal armor, and ornate clothing.

      The TV version is way off, making them appear to be boarderline mindless undead in rags (also need to point out the staff hes wielding is also incorrect). This is the primary cause of all the confusion involving them in the TV series.

    But the White Walker riding the horse doesn’t even look like a zombie.

    The show has explained several times the difference between a White Walker and an undead human.

    It just seems to me that an awful lot of viewers barely pay attention to the show’s details.
    Half the people I talk to don’t even know main characters names.

    What is the difference between a White Walker and zombie / undead human? I honestly don’t recall that distinction being made, but I look forward to a Game of Thrones marathon when it’s out, so I can pick up on the details missed.

    They’re dead people who return to life as White Walkers, that seems pretty Zombie like to me really. But I dont feel like they’re typical brain/flesh eaters. But they do indeed look like them. The leader or what I am assuming is the leader may be the original race you’re talking about though since he seemed different.

    Bottom line it is still an army of zombies. i dont remember them referring to zombies and white walkers seperate so i would have easily called them all white walkers but i do now see the difference between the zombies and the ones on horse back leading them. thanks for clarifying that for me and that makes it even more interesting to see next season. cant wait

    Yes, the White Walkers (known as ‘the Others’ in the novels) are a race of mysterious creatures (not humans) who have the power to raise the dead to fight for them.

    So, yes, the things walking on the ground are human zombies, but the white thing riding the horse and holding an ice spear is a White Walker.

    The White Walkers are an entirely separate race.
    Think Elves in Lord of the Rings only they are evil and turn people into zombies.

    I feel like the guy on the horse was either one of the First Men or the Children of the Forest who had been turned into a Wight.

      Sorry, but you feel wrong. That is a White Walker. They aren’t even human.
      The First Men were just normal humans, and the Children of the Forest are two feet high.
      Why do I feel as if I am repeating myself?

    Dan, because these guys are the average american audience. That’s why they changed Asha’s name to Yara, to not confuse with Osha, the wildling woman that lives in Winterfell.
