The characters in Game of Thrones can be divided into two categories: Those who have seen White Walkers, and those who have not. White Walker believers, like Jon Snow, know there’s no time to waste. Skeptics, like Daenerys and Cersei, are more concerned with playing tug-of-war for the Iron Throne than they are with children’s tales come to life.
