Why do you put white walker/other? What's the other mean?

White Walkers are more commonly* referred to as The Others in the novels.

*the wildlings refer to them as White Walkers

Was the wight walker (Other?) at the end supposed to be old bear? I thought it looked like him, but i know that's not how it happens in the books so....

Hm, I guess I can see a bit of a resemblance *lulz* but no.  If the Old Bear had been killed and his body left unburned, I believe he would have become a wight -just another reanimated corpse like the other members of the walking dead in the frozen army.  Our pal on the neckless horse was a White Walker/Other. Let’s call him, Nose…because he has one, unlike this guy.

In response to the question you got about the others being called the white walkers the writers talk about it in the commentaries on the Blu-ray. Apparently they did it so people wouldn't get confused and end up asking what others? also they thought that script-wise it just flowed better.

Yes. This ^ too.

Dear FYWF, Thank you for the White walker image...I will never have a nice dream ever again... :( I actually love your blog very much and I am more often than not yelling out fuck yeah while scrolling through my dashboard and seeing your posts. That image is real from HBO right? Scary as hell don't know how I am gonna get through that.

Apologies for the nightmare fuel and thanks for the kind words!!

And yes, the image is from HBO -here’s a clip.  And azorahai posted a cleaned up shot grabbed last year if you want yet another scare.
