They held the gate. So sad.

Grenn, what a legend. His speech gave me goosebumps, and the whole rallying his comrades was so perfect.

Here is is for anyone who wants to rewatch his glorious moment:

GRRM says it is one of his favorite things he has ever written.

Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death.  I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post.  I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men.  I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch,  for this night and all the nights to come.

In the books the oath has few extra lines:

Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death.  I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post.  I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls.  I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men.  I pledge my life and honour to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.

Plus, there is the badass eulogy they say whenever a brother dies:

And now his watch is ended.
