With Ramsay Bolton and Walder Frey out of the picture, there aren't many real baddies left in Game of Thrones.
One is Cersei Lannister, with her sharp cheekbones and gigantic bodyguard Ser Gregor. The other is the ruler of the undead himself, the Night King.
But don't expect him to start making villainous monologues about world domination, nefarious plans and 'unlimited powerrrrrrr' any time soon.
In an interview with Deadline (opens in new tab), showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss stated that the character will never, ever talk.
"We don't think of the Night King as a villain as much as Death. He is not someone who's like Joffrey or Ramsay.
"It's appropriate he doesn't speak. What's Death going to say? Anything would diminish him. He's just a force of destruction. I don't think we've ever been tempted to write dialogue for the Night King. Anything he said would be anticlimactic."
We're not sure how anyone is going to get close enough to the Night King if he isn't too busy rambling. It's basically every evildoer's main weakness:
Interestingly, Benioff and Weiss don't even think of the Night King as evil, saying "evil comes when you have a choice between that and good, and you choose the wrong way. The Night King doesn't have a choice; he was created in that way, and that's what he is.
"In some ways, he's just Death, coming for everyone in the story, and for all of us."
The Night King will be coming for everyone in Game of Thrones season seven, which won't be hitting our screens until next summer (opens in new tab).
