Well I heard the mayor of Chicago declared it a gun violence free weekend so you should check out the south side of the city.

I honestly think it was just Hodor seeing a vision of getting torn to pieces by wraiths.  It is kind of like how Cersei is consumed with the prophecy of her own death and the death of her children.

Comment 23 May 2016

I guess at the time the COTF were so concerned with the threat from the First Men that they were willing to do whatever it took to defeat them.  The COTF already destroyed the land mass which connected Westeros to Essos and flooded The Neck in an attempt to stop the First Men.  The White Walkers were the last attempt to turn back the tide.  It would be like how the Soviets used the scorched-earth tactic to slow down and then defeat the Nazis in WWII, or the mutually assured destruction policy during the Cold War.

Brynden Rivers is the Three-eyed Crow.  I saw an article that said he was able to "download" all of his knowledge to Bran before he was killed.

Changing the past adds a very unique dimension to the story.  The original Long Night/Battle for the Dawn was won by The Last Hero/Azor Ahai.  According to legend he traveled with 12 companions in search of the COTF.  Maybe the COTF taught him how to change the past in order help win the war and defeat the enemy they helped create.

Bran the Builder raised the wall so I don't think the COTF are needed to keep it up.  There's a chance that Summer and Hodor come back as wraiths, there are undead bears at The Battle of The Fist of Men in the 3rd book (awesome chapter).  The Three-eyed Crow is Brynden Riven, he's part Targ and part First Men.  He was a former Hand of the King and Lord Commander of the Nights Watch, call sign Bloodraven.  He was a major player in the Blackfyre Rebellion for the Targs.

Bran definitely runs into Benjen or Coldhands, or warged into something to survive next week.  

My question is if the mark on Bran's arm means the WW can get behind the wall if Bran goes behind the wall.

If you want some background on some of the characters here's a good start.  You can look up the Children of the Forest as well.  It helps if you don't have the time to read five 1,000+ page books.

The White Walkers want to kill everything living.  The Children of the Forest already fought the White Walkers with the First Men 8,000 years ago, and they are still allied with them now.  I'm not sure what Bran is going to do next, but if he can change the past that might explain how Bran the Builder was able to defeat the White Walkers in the Long Night 8,000 years ago.  If you knew an enemy was coming you could prepare for it years in advance.

Comment 22 May 2016

I think Hodor some how caught a glimpse of his future when Bran warged into him.  If I saw a bunch of undead tearing me apart I'd only be able to say one word as well.

i think that was a book spoiler, there is know way the show could come up with that one its own.  George R.R. Martin is one hell of a writer if he's had that back story planned from book 1. 

Comment 19 May 2016

As clueless as she is in the show, she is even worse in the book.  I can wait for the prophecy to be fulfilled and watch her get choked out by her "little brother."
