The Night King destroyed a significant chunk of the wall at Eastwatch-by-the-sea through the reanimated Viserion at the end of Game of Thrones this season. It resulted in a breach big enough for the other white walkers and hundreds of thousands of wights to pass through the wall and into North.

As the White Walkers and its army of the dead moves forward south of the wall into the vast territory of the North, we ask, where are they heading next? Winterfell is still further inland, and we assume that this is where the ultimate battle of the Great War will occur in “Game of Thrones” season 8.

Castle Black

The Nigh King could proceed westward to next attack Castle Black, the main stronghold of the Night’s Watch, thus eliminating the order’s primary seat of power. It could pick up more dead armies by striking Mole’s Town, which is located just south of the castle.

Last Hearth and Karhold

Last Hearth, the seat of House Umber and Karhold, the seat of House Karstark, are the nearest Northern capitals that lie in the path of The Night King. After Eastwatch and Castle Black, these strongholds are likely next to face the dreaded attack by the White Walkers and its army of the dead.

The last Hearth is the northernmost major castle in the Seven Kingdoms. Due to House Umber’s proximity to the Wall, its lands were often subjected to wildling attacks.

In “A Storm of Swords,” Maester Aemon sent a raven to the Last Hearth asking help to defend Castle Black from wildlings.

The Dreadfort and Hornwood

Further south, the Night King could spread its attack to include the House Bolton’s stronghold, the Dreadfort, and House Hornwood’s seat of power at Hornwood. With the Boltons gone, however, it is not clear who controls its territory after it lost in the Battle of the Bastards.

Gods Eye

One theory posted on Reddit predicts that the Night King is going directly to Gods Eye, the largest lake in the Seven Kingdoms located at the southern Riverlands.

In its northern shore stands Harrenhal, which was given as a prize to the late Littlefinger after he brokered the alliance between the Lannister and the Tyrells in “Game of Thrones” Season 2.

In the center of the lake is the Isle of Faces, a legendary place where the pact between the Children of the Forest and the First Men was created thus ending the bitter war between them.

According to the theory, the Night King will use the magic that can be found on the Isle of Faces in order to give life to his undead army.
