No matter what the HBO hackers threaten to do, you cannot stop Game of Thrones from being the most watched, most popular series on planet earth. After tonight's events unfolded, Jon Snow and his Fellowship of the Dead have head straight into the cold to find the army of the dead, hoping to score a White Walker. By viewing the trailer for next week's episode, it seem they have completed their task.

Jon, Gendry, Davos and Jorah explain the mission to Tormund. The wildling is disappointed Brienne has not joined them, and understands why Davos won't either - he's not a fighter. Down in the Eastwatch cells, Tormund shows Jon the pack of men he found also heading north, and Jon recognizes the Hound. Gendry, seeing Beric Dondarrion, immediately says these men are not to be trusted - they once sold him to a Red witch. Jorah also recognizes Thoros, who then exposes him as a Mormont, the son of the man who hunted Tormund. Despite the hostilities within the group, Jon agrees with Beric that ultimately, they are all on the same side.

"You really want to out there again? You're not the only ones." - Tormund Giantsbane

The gate to the Eastwatch tunnel is raised, and the men step beyond the Wall.
