There's a moment in the "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms," the second episode of the season, when Ser Davos Seaworth, who can't get Shireen Baratheon's death out of his mind, meets a little girl who says she'd like to stay above ground and fight the Night King and his army of wights as soon as they breach the walls of Winterfell.
It was a sweet moment, and Ser Davos' protective side reared its head again: He urged the girl to stay in the Winterfell crypts with the non-fighting contingent and asked her to "defend" it.
The girl promised she would.
But as we saw in the follow-up episode "The Long Night," in which the Night King arrives and all (icy) hell breaks loose, the Night King invoked his power to raise the dead, the crypts of Winterfell (which are full of dead bodies, just so you know) became overrun with wights, and numerous lives were lost in the ensuing onslaught.
And that little girl was down there, but she was nowhere to be seen once the dead began to invade, a fact which prompted one Twitter user to point out that she broke her promise.
She did a shit job protecting the crypt. #GameofThrones #NotToday https://t.co/CoU6lL1a4f— ➿. (@➿.) 1556554155.0
We see where your priorities were, little girl.

We demand a word with the manager.
@y_fbjd @Perturbingly Who decided that sticking those who couldn’t fight with the dead was a good idea when fightin… https://t.co/DyrT0OKt5H— 🐈 ♥️🐐 (@🐈 ♥️🐐) 1556567048.0
And now that the dead are everywhere, Winterfell has solved its food problem.
@y_fbjd @thenewine Anything for an extra ladle of food 😂 honestly— ArchMaester Greene (@ArchMaester Greene) 1556575692.0
It's okay, little girl. No one really expected you to go in there, guns blazing. Look at how easily the people aboveground became overwhelmed by the Night King's army. Look at how freaked out everyone in the crypts became once the dead began to break through the walls.
If you ran and hid, good on you. You bought yourself some time, which is more than we can say for some of your fellow cast members!
