Amazon cites “arrival of the Night King” as reason for delayed delivery of ‘Game Of Thrones’ DVDs

Winter is well and truly here

Amazon has blamed the Night King for Game Of Thrones DVDs being delivered late due to snowy conditions in the UK.

A customer recently took to Reddit to share a screenshot of an email he says he received from Amazon after ordering a Blu-ray copy of Game Of Thrones season 7.

The email was titled “Winter is here” and jokingly said that “due to adverse weather conditions caused by the arrival of the Night King”, the item “may arrive one or two days later than expected”.

NME has contacted Amazon for verification about the email.

The customer who shared the email wrote: “It seems Amazon UK have a sense of humour when it comes to delivering Season 7 in the snowy conditions right now.”

Meanwhile, Thrones actor Isaac Hempstead Wright has spoken out about a fan theory that suggests Bran Stark is the Night King.

Despite calling the idea “far-fetched”, Wright did not rule out the possibility that it was correct. Speaking to Mashable, he said: “To be honest, I’m finding it a little far-fetched, but then again, I would’ve thought the Hodor theory far-fetched if I’d seen that on an internet forum.

“I dunno, there are so many theories in Game Of Thrones and so many things that are gonna begin to tie up next season, I think it’ll be interesting to see.”

He further elaborated on it in another interview with Vulture, saying Stark and the Night King are “less the same person and more that they’re two of the ancient beings of Westeros.”

He continued: “The Three-Eyed Raven has been around for God knows how long, and White Walkers have been reported since the beginning of time. As we’ve seen, they were created by the Children of the Forest, so we can’t get much more ancient than that.

“Perhaps we can think of it as these are two characters with a huge amount of power, but one is a Frankenstein’s monster who is driven by nothing but hatred and violence. Then there’s Bran, who uses his powers for good,” he added. “I want to find out why the Night King is so obsessed with destroying mankind. We’ll see whether they have any kind of explanations in the next season.”
