The Other halts. For the first time we see its eyes, bluer

than any human eyes, a blue that burns like ice.

They emerge silently from the shadows, on all sides of the

clearing. Five of them... six... seven... their strange

swords shimmering in the moonlight.

Gared can no longer control his panicked horse; it bolts from

the clearing, ignoring its rider’s commands.

The Others watch Gared flee. They turn back to Ser Waymar and

Will and begin to advance on the young men.

As the circle closes, the Others speak to each other in a

language we’ve never heard, with voices like cracking ice.

Waymar and Will stand together, class distinctions forgotten,

two boys about to die. They steady their sword hands and

mutter quick prayers as the Others descend upon them.

CLOSE on a pair of ancient, gnarled hands writing a message

on a small parchment scroll. The old man (we never see his

face) tightly rolls the scroll, binds it with a black ribbon,

and ties it with a leather strip to the leg of a BLACK RAVEN.

The old man lifts the raven off his desk; it flaps its dark

wings and flies out of the open chamber window.

The raven flies away from Castle Black, a large and ancient

fortress dwarfed by what lies behind it: the Wall. Older than

history, this is the 800-foot-high barrier of ice and stone

that guards the northern edge of the Seven Kingdoms.

As the raven gains altitude, the landscape below it

TRANSFORMS into a map of Westeros. The Wall is revealed to

cross the entire continent, a boundary between the Haunted

Forest to the north and the civilized lands to the south.

The raven flies south over the map, on which the cities,

regions and features of the land are named: Winterfell, the

Kingsroad, Moat Cailin, the Riverlands, the Vale of Arryn.
