The enemy is to the north, so that's where our heroes are heading. Season 7, episode 5 of HBO's hit series "Game of Thrones" featured some big reveals, including Jamie surviving his encounter with Drogon and Gilly discovering Jon Snow's legitimate noble birth. However, the episode, titled "Eastwatch" ended with Snow leading a raiding party north of the wall to retrieve evidence of the army of the dead. The group features an eclectic group of characters, some who just returned to the screen and others who have been with us since the Pilot. Here is a closer look at the "suicide squad" of Westeros.
