In other words, are the white walkers able to cross the Narrow Sea? We do know that they cannot swim, but could the freeze it?

    No proof whether Viserion breathes ice or fire

  • Okay, but the question still remains. The White walkers do have some "icy aura". Could it actually be that strong to freeze the Narrow Sea?

  • I would say the Night King can freeze lakes and stuff. But then he'd have done it earlier in episode 6. I think, unfortunately. This is too speculative of a question and violates our Future Works Policy

  • @Martin Again, no proof to support that the White Walkers or the Night King can freeze water bodies. So, Essos is a safe place for now.

  • I think this is an interesting, but very speculative question

1 Answer 1

  1. There is no proof that Viserion is breathing ice. For all we know, it can be blue fire. Nor do we have any proof that the Night Walker(s) can freeze water bodies.
  2. Essos is supposed to be a safe place, at least according to what we know till now, this is, that the Dead cannot swim.
  • Who says they can't swim? Just because they waited around the Island till Dany arrived? If that's so, how do we explain them jumping in and out of Ice Holes?

  • @Aegon Yes. That was the reasoning which Jon and co have given to Cersei. So, that's the only way one can validate this.

  • If they could swim, they could pass the wall at eastwatch from the sea. Aug 28, 2017 at 11:19
