Game Of Thrones Season 6 Episode 4 Book Of The Stranger

Attention: Game Of Thrones Season 6 Episode 4 Spoiler Ahead!!!

If you haven’t seen Game Of Thrones s06e03 Oathbreaker yet, then we would advise you people to turn back as a potential spoiler lies ahead in the paragraph. As we talked about the episode 3 begin the kind of an episode were a lot of development took place in reference to their characters, leading them to some diverging storyline and push them on a completely distinct track in the story, well here come another one with none other than the most awaited and popular character Jon Snow.

In the last Sundays episode we saw Jon Snow giving up his position of Lord Commander and instead give away the responsibility to none other than his loyal supporter and friend Dolorous Edd and this is one thing a Night’s Watchman cannot do as they take an oath before they become one and the oath says, “Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death.” But this we think does not apply him anymore because he has been dead and now is free from his vow, but the ideology behind is far greater than what we think, In an Interview With Entertainment Weekly Kit Harington spoke about the change that has occurred in Jon Snow and why it has been carried this way in the show…

“He’s done with it. He’s seen the other side, seen what’s there, and comes back and realizes he needs to lead his life and get out of there. This place betrayed him, and everything he stood for has changed. Plus, he had to kill a child, Olly, and that’s what really does it. He kills an underage kid and he can’t see the point in being up there anymore. At the heart of it, he knows by staying at the Wall he can’t help the kingdoms and he’s probably going to die very quickly if he stays.”

Well according to Kit Harington the change is certain and is important as he has been dead, which he had never experienced and that though itself has influenced him to take up such decision, further elaborating Harington had this to speak up…

“At first, I was worried that he’ll wake up and he’s the same, back to normal — then there’s no point in that death. He needs to change. There’s a brilliant line when Melisandre asks: ‘What did you see?’ And he says: ‘Nothing, there was nothing at all.’ That cuts right to our deepest fear, that there’s nothing after death. And that’s the most important line in the whole season for me. Jon’s never been afraid of death, and that’s made him a strong and honorable person. He realizes something about his life now: He has to live it because that’s all there is. He’s been over the line and there’s nothing there. And that changes him. It literally puts the fear of God into him. He’s seen oblivion, and that’s got to change somebody in the most fundamental way there is. He doesn’t want to die ever again. But if he does, he doesn’t want to be brought back.”

Jon Snow leaving the place castle black would certainly bring great changes in the story, also the upcoming part where Sansa Stark along with Brienne and Podrick who all have made their way up to the wall would be stunned if they do not come across Jon, but what so ever happen the story just gets much more complex, that we defiantly are going to discover as the next week the show would take us to the “Book Of The Stranger” on May 15th , so tune yourself to HBO Networks Sunday night at 9 p.m. ET & 10 p.m. PT.
