Written by Matt Bretschneider and Aleeza Klarman
Based on A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin

COLD OPEN

INT. BALERION – DAENERYS TARGARYEN’S CABIN – SAILING – NIGHT

A cold breeze blows through the spacious cabin. DAENERYS TARGARYEN shivers beneath her fur blanket next to JON SNOW.

Daenerys clutches her arms as she tosses in her sleep, trying to shake an unprecedented nightmare.

EXT. THE NORTHERN SKY – NIGHT

Daenerys, panicked and alone, flies through the sky. She scans the sky above and a sea of clouds below her.

The sun cracks the horizon. It’s DAWN. Instinctively, Dany covers her eyes but realizes…

…she is a DRAGON.

A SCREECH rings out. A painful scream, but one that is familiar.

VISERION –- he is alive, but undead.

Viserion lets out another screech and descends through the clouds below. He soars above a battlefield.

EXT. LAST HEARTH – DAWN

Surrounded by the ARMY OF THE DEAD, the FIGHTERS inside the stronghold make their final stand.

WIGHTS swarm like locusts, scouring the landscape and crushing everything in their path.

FROM ABOVE, wights move as one force to surround and infiltrate the castle. Viserion lets out another screech. Blue flame erupts from his mouth.

Daenerys can feel the force behind this action, and Viserion swoops in for another attack. Blue flame ignites the undead and men alike.

Viserion lands inside the courtyard of Last Hearth. The few remaining survivors look on in horror.

NED UMBER, the boy lord of Last Hearth, weeps. He and his men are surrounded.

Petrified, Daenerys feels an icy hand slide down her neck.

The NIGHT KING dismounts Viserion and places his hand on the dragon’s scaled shoulder. He stares into Viserion’s azure blue eye.

INT. BALERION – DAENERYS TARGARYEN’S CABIN – SAILING – SAME

Daenerys wakes and shivers. She breathes heavily. She pulls the blanket around her and finds…

…Jon Snow under the covers next to her.

Jon sits up, seeing something has happened.

JON SNOW

What’s wrong? Are we at White
Harbor?

DAENERYS TARGARYEN

No. But I dreamt the Night King had
attacked.

JON SNOW

It was just a dream.

DAENERYS TARGARYEN

It seemed so real. Some place in
the North. And…Viserion…
     (a beat)
He was alive.

Jon gets out of bed. He grabs his black boiled leather coat, lined with white and gray fur, and throws it over Daenerys’ shoulders. Jon sits beside her.

JON SNOW

Watching him die…I’m sorry.

DAENERYS TARGARYEN

Jon, it was like I was inside him.
Seeing what he saw, feeling what he
felt.
     (a beat)
Feeling his pain.

Jon holds Daenerys as they look out the porthole to the rising sun.

CUT TO MAIN TITLES.
