The seventh season of Game of Thrones is truly underway. However, unlike the premiere, the second episode failed to feature the White Walkers, the ominous army of the undead marching towards the living.

**Spoiler for the season premiere only ahead**

Since that opening episode, eagle eyed viewer have spotted something very interesting in the opening credits sequence; a minor change that could reveal a key plot point to come.

Back in the first episode, titled Dragonstone, we saw The Hound have a vision in the flames, the former knight talking about “where The Wall meets the sea” and “the dead marching past”.

Many fans believe that, due to the long Winter, we can expect the Night’s King to freeze the sea nearby The Wall, the army of the dead able to walk past.

Eagle eyed fans noticed that, during the opening theme, The Wall looks a little different, the ocean by the most Eastern point seemingly being frozen.

Could the Night’s King actually be marching past, as The Hound predicted? Or will The Wall come crumbling down thanks to Bran? All will surely be revealed within the season.
