She doesn’t believe them when it comes to the dead. They decide they will bring one to see her. Jon wants to lead the charge. Davos tells him, no, but he is determined to go himself.
The people of the north are upset. They want to know where their king is and they don’t want to follow

doesn’t come back, Arya asks.

She tells Jon that she has grown used to him. Samwell tries to work. He is angry he must record unnecessary information when the solution to saving themselves from the dead is probably sitting on a dusty shelf. Angry, he heads to the forbidden area of the library, taking books and loading it in his carriage with his family. He is ready to leave. He is tired of being a Maester.
