Kit Harington revelations (spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Jon Snow may be back or he may not,  but I wouldn't put any stock into anything Kit Harington is saying about it.  He's not going to reveal a major plot point or the fate of his character in an interview.

Or not - and the whole bloodlines being special thing is as pointless in GoTs as it was with real royalty :D

Or, so you hope.  Just because it doesn't fit your narrative, we have seen where the bloodlines do matter.  And the screenplay has made Daenerys flame proof, too.

Could go either way - point is it doesn't seem very relevant to everything else happening in the story now.

Would Jon being a Targ have stopped the Nights Watch turning on him? Would it have made him react differently to the wildlings? Would it have had any impact on his relationship with Ygrette, or how he feels about the Starks? It doesn't seem very relevant to the unfolding narrative as written and filmed and the idea of 'a special baby with a special bloodline' will feel tacked on to the rest of the story now.

Thorne is a Targaryen loyalist that hates Starks, to explain his motives.  I doubt that the mutiny would have gotten as much traction without his support.  If he knew that Jon was a Targaryen his character arc would be quite different.

He's not going to be alive long enough to find out, is he? *tear*

:( I know... We will all miss Thorne's reaction to Jon Targaryen.

That is the true shame of this arc.  I wonder if GRRM has an alternate version in the works.

By the law of GRMM, characters who are vital to such important fact shouldn't be expose to it (like Aemon dying before get to know Jon's parentage or Sam probably won't know Jon got kill).

I think Jon being a Targ will have far more importance to HIMSELF than to the rest of Westeros. Finding out his true heritage will drive him to do....whatever he does for the final battle.
