Gilly Might Be The Most Important Character In Game Of Thrones New Gameplay – https://youtu.be/nE2uhv-ZCSw Game of Thrones’ Gilly has been surprising us from her first episode, and as the series finale and all the battle and bloodshed it brings with it crests the horizon, she’s not likely to stop anytime soon. How might the young woman from Craster’s Keep turn the tide of battle?
If you’re all caught up on your Game of Thrones binges, then you’ve probably grown accustomed to seeing Gilly embarking on ocean voyages or in the relative safety of the Citadel. It might be easy to forget that Gilly spent most of her life in the dangerous lands beyond the Wall. She knows the North like only a wildling could, and she holds no illusions about how desperate life there can be. While season 7 ended with the Walkers shattering the Wall in a spectacular burst of blue dragonfire, it seems likely that at least part of the final season could take place in the far North and Gilly could prove a unique guide to those frozen and forbidding lands.
Not to mention that while most of Game of Thrones’ central characters have until now seen the White Walkers as nothing more than some laughable child’s tale, Gilly grew up with the Walkers as an absolute certainty. They were a part of her daily life. As one of Craster’s wives, the Walkers’ appetites defined her life and she understands them as few can.
In the season 7 finale, one of the most popular fan theories was confirmed by Bran Stark and his psychic, time-spanning visions. It turns out that Jon Snow isn’t a bastard at all, but the child of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. Which means that Daenerys isn’t the last Targaryen and that Jon is the true heir to the Iron Throne.
But before Bran peeled back the layers of time and space, there was Gilly, discovering it in a forgotten journal, buried in the bowels of the Citadel. In the season 7 episode “Eastwatch,” as she and Sam pored over the spoils of the Citadel’s library, Gilly found a description of an annulment granted to Jon Snow’s true father.
