WARNING: Light spoilers for Game of Thrones ahead. If you haven't seen tonight's episode yet, proceed with caution.
With the Night King and his army making their trek down to Winterfell, the armies of the Seven Kingdoms — or whatever fighters are left, that is — start setting up their last stand to protect all of Westeros. One of the pieces of their plan involves relocating the women and children to the crypt underneath Winterfell, where the Northern city stores all of their dead.
You see, the problem with that is — the Night King's primary strength is the power to resurrect and control the dead. And that's something fans instantly caught on with. Noticing that the women and children of Winterfell are likely in more trouble down in the crypts against the Night King than on the surface, fans quickly took to social media to point out the flaws in the plan.
Keep scrolling to see what fans are saying about the flawed idea...
Game of Thrones airs Sunday nights on HBO starting at 9/8 p.m. Central.

Crazy theory for next episode— Zach Pope (@popetheking) April 22, 2019
So since The Night King can resurrect the dead... who’s to say we won’t get a bunch of the dead from the crypt back to life... like Robb or a headless Ned... idk would be kinda cool.. pic.twitter.com/9VtnZXU1rI

Can’t wait for the Night King to turn all of the dead Starks in the crypt into white walkers and use them to slaughter all the women and children hiding underground 🤪— Brock (@fluharty5) April 22, 2019
