Harlan Posted August 24, 2013 Share Posted August 24, 2013 Bowen Marsh drove his dagger into Jon's gut.... sufficiently deep that Jon had to pull it out. Stabbed similarly from behind, and another elsewhere. Fatal. When last we saw Jon, he was collapsing, with multiple stab wounds, and surrounded by people who meant to kill him... I bring up infection to counter any claims that the wounds themselves that we have seen were not instantly fatal... but I don't think infection will matter because he's going to be killed by Marsh & Co. who are armed and surrounding him.I could be wrong of course... someone could come stop Marsh & Co before they deliver the death blow... and Jon may be dying instead of dead.What I am sure of is that Melisandre will have a role to play in Jon's survival. She will either give him the last kiss thing, OR she will do a Moqorro and 'heal' Jon... though I'm not sure how that works with wounds to one's torso.If the blade is only a few inches long and Jon is wearing a few inches of fur/leather. The blade would penetrate Jon's stomach very poorly. the blade would also have easily gotten stuck in all that armor and would have needed to be pulled out. There are variables which we don't know which determine whether Jon has been wounded superficially or fatally. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
