Eastwatch-by-the-Sea (No leaks please)
This is in response to the next episode of Game of Thrones. I'm wondering how protected Eastwatch actually is. It was mentioned that the Free Folk (FF) are the ones manning the castle, but is this in addition to the Nights Watch (NW), or is it all FF now and the NW are focusing on Castle Black? Also, is it mentioned that Eastwatch is on the eastern coast of the continent, does that make it easier or harder to protect? Lastly, what the heck is going on in the other manned castle, The Shadow Tower? What the heck are they doing right now?
Feel free to make comments and speculations, but please avoid mentioning any production leaks. Book spoilers however, are good to go.
