All in all, Hardhome makes fans wonder whether Jon Snow was indeed the Prince that was Promised in the books because he ticked off all the qualities of a person who will sit justly on the Iron Throne, and perhaps put an end to the Long Night. Hardhome was an exciting and hard fought battle and one that would always remain my favorite because it was masterfully executed and built up characters to root for as the series progresses.
All in all, the Battle of Castle Black was dark, intense, panic-inducing and action packed. There was non stop fighting, casualties piled up like a Christmas tree on Christmas morning, a great show of courage, loyalty, duty and sacrifice — most especially sacrifice. It was extraordinary victory for the Nights Watch but it came at the cost of tragedy, brothers lost on both sides and none came out the better at night’s end.
