Rally the realm – only 2 days to go until we return to the bloody shores of Westeros, where the gods are old and new, where fear cuts deeper than swords, and where, inevitably, all men must die.
To celebrate the start of season 7, on each of the 7 days (see what I’m doing here) leading up to our return to the 7 kingdoms I will recap a character’s best bits of season 6 – a year when kings died, fire reigned and a girl was definitely someone.
*Season 6 spoilers – obviously*
Here are JON SNOW’S TOP 5 MOMENTS of season 6
JON LIVES OK?
We all cried at the end of season 5. We all thought he HAD to come back. They all lied through their teeth for a year. And then this happened…
The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword. I truly believe if Olly had shown the slightest sign of repentance Jon would have shown mercy, but the short sighted killers had to go, and Jon conducted his duty with his own sword, as his father had taught him.
This battle of the bastards. Good against evil. Snow against Snow. RIP Wun Wun. Notice the use of the Mormont shield, and that Sansa only has to look at Jon for him to stay his fists and leave the Bastard of Bolton to be dealt with at her hands. The hunted Starks become the victorious residents of Winterfell once more.
Listen to Lyanna Mormont. She is wise. All hail the King in the North! (Sorry Robb).
