Kit Harington Talks About Reading What Happened To Jon Snow

With the many issues I have with the clusterf**k that was the eighth season of Game of Thrones, one thing I didn’t have a problem with was Jon Snow going back north of the wall. Hold on, let me back up just a little bit. When Tyrion first told Jon that his sentence would be to return to the Night’s Watch, I seriously thought he was joking, and once I realized he wasn’t joking, I uhh, I didn’t like it, I really didn’t like it, at all.

For about the first five minutes after that scene, I was mumbling some incoherent nerd stuff, before I realized it was where Jon belonged. and even though they were appeasing Grey Worm, it’s likely the choice Jon would have made anyway. Actor Kit Harington, who will always be known as Jon Snow, no matter the greatness he goes on to achieve, recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter, and talked about reading the script for Jon Snow’s final scenes.

“I loved it. When I read it, that bit really made me cry. What really made me cry was on the paper: ‘End of Game of Thrones.’ But as far as an ending for Jon Snow, this character that I loved for so many years and had grown so close to, and had meant so much to me…seeing him go beyond the Wall back to something true, something honest, something pure with these people he was always told he belongs with — the Free Folk — it felt to me like he was finally free. Instead of being chained and sent to the Wall, it felt like he was set free. It was a really sweet ending. As much as he had done a horrible thing [in killing Daenerys], as much as he had felt that pain, the actual ending for him was finally being released.”

As I’ve said before, I am more or less fine with the way things ended for the characters, Dany going mad, Sansa Ruling Winterfell, Bran being king, and so on. I just really disliked the, “Ok here’s all the major events of how the story we’ve been telling you ends.” We should have grown to hate Daenerys in about the same amount of time we learned to love Jaime, it would have meant so much more.

A huge part of GoT was the payoff, and without a build up, the payoff is empty, almost meaningless. And even with the prequel coming, we will never again get to experience the shock of Ned losing his head, the Red Wedding, and the Mountain and the Viper, because before all that, television series didn’t do that to viewers, and now we’ll be ready for it.

I still think D&D should have shocked the world and killed everyone during The Long Night, they should have took the next step and basically ripped our hearts out. Even when shows end, there’s still a story to be told, we just never get to see it. Had they stuck to the Valar Morghulis saying, they would have had a series where there was no more story, and left their mark on television like no show before them.
