Nucky Thompson Posted September 9, 2013 Share Posted September 9, 2013 On a reread of the Game of Thrones TV show's season 1, I noticed a peculiar expression made by Lord Commander Jeor Mormont. When Jon is about to attempt to flee in order to aid Robb in his war for avenging their beheaded father, Mormont asks him: "Are you gonna bring him back to life?".With the recent developments regarding Jon at the end of ADwD and the showwriters' apparent knowledge of the things to come (since GRRM told them), could this actually be of significance further down the storyline? We have other examples of the show where there is foreshadowing or tongue-in-cheek remarks about future events in the series: i.e. Melisandre warning Arya that they shall meet again, although the whereabouts of their meeting are still to be described in the books. (I had one more such example in mind, but I seem to have forgotten it while posting the topic.)Nevertheless, there have been theories on the forums about the Jon cliffhanger ending in an UnJon leading the Others' invasion southward. In doing so, he could come across the party carrying Ned's bones to Winterfell and raise him as a wight thus fulfilling Mormont's implied speculation.
