Borsabil Posted July 31, 2013 Share Posted July 31, 2013 What about if he's just in a coma, not dead, like Bran?Yeah there are three paths GRRM can choose.1) Jon is not dead, but badly wounded. Perhaps we're not told of his fate right away, his 'body' is spirited away by the wildings, many assume he's dead but he spends time recupitaring beyond the wall. That's my preference as it avoids all the supernatural mumbo jumbo and sets Jon up as a leader to replace Mance and let's him come into his own.2) he's dead. Difficult one as then what would have been the point of his story? Would much change because of his death? Would alliances shift? Would wars break out? Would anyone care? The only thing i can think of that would further the story, if Jon does die, is that it would break the Nights Watch. If the brotherhood falls apart would the magic that created the wall holding back the Others for millennia fall apart as well allowing for an invasion? 3) zombie/werewolf Jon. Seems to be the majority opinion, but a bit lazy IMO. I guess it would make an entertaining read, but far too comic book for ASOIAF. And do we really want Jon coming back as Bedric or Lady Stoneheart??? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
