In Norway, winter is always coming...
Or it is staying. I am currently on vacation in Norway between Bergen and Oslo and this afternoon it was snowing. In Finnse the whole area was still covered with snow, I guess at least 50cm.
Except for when it is actually winter, then summer is coming
You know nothing Jon Snow
Du vet ingenting, Jon Snø
in 50 years from now we will still giggle at this and no one will understand why
In 50 years from now, the new book in the series may already have been published!
In 50 years there wont be winters any more :-(
Winter will always come, as it always did.
The North Remembers.
Thank you Ned Stark
Does it need to have a definite article in Norwegian? There is no definite article in English.
Yes, it does need to be definite. Same with "Sommeren/høsten/våren kommer"
Why is that?
For the same reason that you don't say it in English.
Before we had, "Det er vår", so I'd say it depends upon whether you want to say just 'winter'/'spring' or 'the winter'/'the spring', the same as in English.

SPOILER ALERT: Vinteren har kommet.
Eddard Stark agrees
For the translation "winter is coming", why is "winter" in the definite?
A specific winter (the one that is coming) is doing the action. It cannot be applied to just any winter, because there is only one winter that is (contextually) coming. Make sense?
Because that's how it's expressed in Norwegian.
I know that some people would be frustrated with your answer but I completely agree with you that sometimes things are the way they are simply because that's how they are. English probably has many more of these than norsk does.
