sj4iy Posted April 15, 2015 Share Posted April 15, 2015 That comes from the 20/20 hindsight of the readers. A leader who is trying to unite the NW to repel the incoming invasion is not going to show favoritism to his friends as that will divide the brotherhood even more. There is the idea of keeping your enemies within your sight. Allowing them to stage dissension elsewhere was not something a leader would want. Jon's issue was that he underestimated the extent that these men would betray him. A Julius Caesar type assassination was not a possibility he had considered. Speaking of which, has anyone else reviewed the similarity between the two assassinations? I guess it doesn't work because Jon isn't going to die. Pretty much this. TBF, I couldn't have imagined Bowen Marsh capable of stabbing his LC to death because that means his own life would be immediately forfeit.
