(HERE BE SPOILS)
ALRIGHT FOR ALL THE IDIOTS WHO ARE IDIOTS HERES A REFRESHER ON HARDHOME:
Hardhome sits on a sheltered bay and has natural harbor deep enough for the biggest ships afloat. Wood and stone are plentiful near there. The waters teem with fish, and there are colonies of seals and sea cows close at hand. A great cliff looms above the settlement, pocked with cave mouths.
Hardhome had been halfway toward becoming a town, the only true town north of the
Wall, until the night six hundred years ago when hell had swallowed it. Its people had been carried
off into slavery or slaughtered for meat, depending on which version of the tale you believed, their
homes and halls consumed in a conflagration that burned so hot that watchers on the Wall far to the south had thought the sun was rising in the north. Afterward ashes rained down on haunted forest and Shivering Sea alike for almost half a year. Traders reported finding only nightmarish devastation where Hardhome had stood, a landscape of charred trees and burned bones, waters choked with swollen corpses, blood-chilling shrieks echoing from the cave mouths that pocked the great cliff that loomed above the settlement. Six centuries had come and gone since that night, but Hardhome was still shunned. The wild had reclaimed the site, Jon had been told, but rangers claimed that the overgrown ruins were haunted by ghouls and demons and burning ghosts with an unhealthy taste for blood.

FROM AN ICELANDIC EXTRA (WHO REPORTED TRUTHFULLY ON SEASON 4) ON REDDIT:
I know a guy who was a white walker this year, and he said that the night’s king is there. He’s a boss of the white walkers as opposed to another entity (ie.Coldhands). They go off a cliff, and are resurrected by him. This is pretty interesting as it fairly blows any notions I had about coldhands and Stannis becoming the new night’s king…that’s all I heard, they die off a cliff in hardhome, and then he ressurects them. and i asked him did he mean the wights and he said no, definately the white walkers (himself included)
SO JON IS FIGHTING A RESURRECTED WILDLING IN HARDHOME
NO NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
